The Bienville House is a average place to stay. Room choice is essential!!! The standard rooms are on the interior of the hotel and do not have windows. Ours was basically the extra room for the suite, next door. If you are not planning on spending a lot of time in the room, this is the least expensive option. Not sure if other rooms had fridges available, but ours did not. This is an older hotel and has its charms. Our room was clean, but we did have a cockroach visit. The bed was OK,soft, probably due for new box spring and mattress. Continental breakfast is the bare minimum, (toast, bagel, apple, banana, coffee, juice, etc.) The staff was friendly and helpful, the person at breakfast tried to be helpful, but felt like she was more in the way...became irritating. Maid service is prompt, if not wanting to be disturbed early use the door knob sign.
