There are many New Orleans Hotels but for a Boutique Hotel in the very heart of New Orleans there is one that holds a higher standard, The Bienville House on the edge of the French Quarter. It is a very distinctive property with style and grace.
The Bienville House has all of the unique elegance of a French Quarter Manor. A crystal blue pool is surrounded by a flagstone courtyard and is overlooked by many of the room’s wrought iron balconies. There are four sundecks for you to relax and savor the ambience.
This lovely hotel started as a grain warehouse but it has gone through many manifestations since then to become the boutique hotel it is today.
In the beginning it was Planter’s Rice Mill, then Thompson’s Rice Mill and Southern Syrup Manufacturing. Then, in 1985, the building was completely transformed into the North American Hotel. The original advertising stated it was a delightful summer residence for Ladies and Gentlemen. Unfortunately the hotels owners went their separate ways and the building was divided into a boarder’s hotel and a fire house. Then it was converted to 20 luxury apartments and started the rival of Decatur Street. In 1972, after surviving a fire from across the street, it was purchased by the Monteleone Family.
The location of the Bienville hotel on Decatur Street mixes the old and new of the charming French Quarter. With its lovely wrought iron balconies this intimate property is the closest to the French Quarter and therefore many attractions are close by. Some of them include Aquarium of the Americas, Canal Place Shopping Center (including Saks Fifth Avenue and Brooks Brothers), Woldenberg Park, IMAX Theater and the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. From this New Orleans hotel you can be spellbound by the stars at the Hard Rock Café while still enjoying the historic French quarter with it’s many famous eateries and scenery.
From this splendid location you can find antique shops, New Orleans’s signature Jazz Clubs, famous restaurants, beautiful historic buildings, voodoo shops, museums, the wharf and more. Just blocks from the exciting 24 hour Bourbon Street, you can find spectacular antiques and art galleries on Royal Street.
AAA has awarded it the coveted Three Diamond title and the Bienville is a member of the Historic Hotels of America. This boutique hotel consistently works hard to go beyond the standards that are demanded of that title.
They have a restaurant, the Louisiana Heritage Café that also serves as a school of cooking. In its casual setting it offers seafood, pasta, soup and salads in the New Orleans tradition. Some of Chef Faroldi’s dishes include Seafood Beignets with Remoulade Sauce, Blackened Catfish topped with Crawfish Etouffée and the famous “Rajun Cajun” Omelets. It is located on the first floor of the hotel and serves three meals a day.
The culinary lessons at the Louisiana Heritage Café can be for individuals or groups. Anyone can attend these lessons. The delicious fare is typically Cajun and Creole and while the chef is preparing the dishes he offers historic stories that will compliment his presentation.
For the business person Bienville House Hotel has a charming space for small meetings or parties for up to 100 guests. In the board room, which will hold 12, you can see the historic roots of this New Orleans Hotel in the exposed brick from the 1800′s.

The racial discrimination against black people in New Orleans has a very long and relentless history. It is brutal how white people treated black people in this city, and we wonder why black people were angered during Katrina.
1) New Orleans started off as the worst of the worst centers for the slave trade in the US South. ———
Almost as much money as agriculture itself was made in New Orleans in the capturing and selling of black people. However, black people in this city overcame this and they made a life for themselves in New Orleans, and they strived to build the city together in unity with the very people who hindered them.
2) The White Southern Democrats known as the "redeemers" took control of New Orleans just when it was on the road to being an integrated city with little to no gap in income or education between races. —————-The white Democrats resegregated the city all over again, under the pretext of "Separate But Equal" but in reality it was UNEQUAL and black people got de-educated, denied health, living, education, forced to live in the ghetto that would ultimately find itself in poverty because of immorality in the works of the racist politicians. Black people still tried to put this system behind and befriend their neighbors, ALL their neighbors, ALL racial make-ups.
3) The black people united together once again, recruited their most educated representatives, a man named Plessey, and he tested the relations and waters by simply riding in a bus next to a white brother/neighbor, and was arrested and the US Supreme Court ruled in Plessey VS. Ferguson that his brutal capture and arrest was constitutional under Separate but Equal.
4) Years and years of denied opportunities, denied equality, denied basic rights, parades of white knights and ku klux klan, ——burning of black churches, beating of their children, poverty and hunger, no justice, and then any retailiation is called "crime" as if crime is just genetic, it just somehow *magically* turned into a criminal city.
5) Finally 1960 comes around and the Civil Rights Movement is so nationwide and in the youth that New Orleans is at the pressure of the Federal level to de-segregate eventhough its own black people 117 years earlier proved desegregation was working, before it was taken away from them. After a bitter fight and a civilian revolution, New Orleans was finally desegregated.
6) In immediate response, the white pro-segregationist population FLED the city called "white flight", closing all jobs and creating a situation whereby the entire infrastructure of the city ran away with the privileged class, leaving the city in shambles and poverty, keeping the old segregation in place and the sense of unwant and neglect.
7) This still did not deter black people to revitalize New Orleans, bring back the roots of the city, the Cajun French Quarter, the tourism, Boubon street, the ‘House of the Rising Sun’, Blues, Jazz, all African American influenced, all without the very people who denied them everything.
8) The end result was despite the poverty, despite the relentless racism, despite EVERYTHING, New Orleans was alive on a thin thread, able to grow and barely get by, that is, unless a major hurricane should test the waters. No government state, local, or federal, or emergency management, was all too interested in helping protect the surivors of this city by modifying the levees.
9) Hurricane Katrina comes, the very same black people who were ignored, ignored one final time, left to die in flood waters, 1,000 of them killed, hundreds of thousands of them left homeless, an irresponsive emergency mgmt.
10) 4 years later, wealthy New Orleans folks from the burbs relocate to surrounding cities. They well were able to afford evacuation plans, they are re-employed in Dallas, San Antonio, Atlanta, Memphis. The local inhabitants who are still living in trailers are told to shut up. They are told the hurricane is over and ALL the centuries of endless racism have ended in 2 years time.
When will the racism in New Orleans and the unequal wealth conditions finally end? When???
The thing people don’t account for is how much invisible hatred AND visible hatred shaped the conditions for CENTURIES that gave way to a culture of violent crime. The violent crime is simply a more conspicuous form of the "INVISIBLE immorality that denied opportunity to thrive any other way but to rob and steel and loot".
Black people never were racist until they were segregated, what do you expect? The divisions were planted. The scars are irreversible.
Nobody "liberated" a plasma TV because grandpa had it rough. Why must some people continue to offer excuses for behavior which is inexcusable?
