The Hotel Bentley is here to serve the community through clean guest rooms and safe dining experiences. Mask are strictly enforced in all common areas of the hotel. We ask for your commitment to the safety of our guests as we commit to your safety!

With Louisiana moving into a modified Phase 2, while most bars in Cenla will be forced to close or only allow for outside service, thanks to our restaurant permit, The Mirror Room will remain open! However, the ordinance will require us to make these restrictions, which will be STRICTLY enforced!

Masks REQUIRED! Only to be removed at your table!

Our seating arrangements and occupancy restrictions require us to remove all bar top seating. We strongly encourage parties of 4 or less. We only have a single table that can sit more than 4 people.

Chairs must absolutely not be moved as to put us out of compliance with social distance regulations!

All tables must order food!

We hope to serve Cenla in a safe manner and find the community respectful of our current circumstances as we strive to allow a safe environment to gather for cocktails and Tapas! Rest assured that we are keeping our facility safe for you.

We will still be open Thanksgiving Day from 10-3! While it is a buffet, we will be serving you as self service is not allowed. Enjoy a delicious meal with us and avoid the hassle of cooking!

Introducing The Mirror Room Tapas Lounge. We have worked hard to reopen The Mirror Room under the strict guidelines of the governor and Alcohol To***co Control. While fellowship is important to us it is imperative that guests are joining us for Tapas or dinner. Ordering food is the ONLY reason we can open under the current phase. While our reputation exists on craft cocktails and a wide range of spirits, we hope you will find our tapas menu compliments what you already know about The Mirror Room. Please remember to remain seated throughout your stay, wear your mask when moving throughout the facility and rest assured that we are disinfecting all guest areas, highly toughed surfaces and performing daily sanitizing procedures. We hope you enjoy your temporary modified experience with us. Guests are prohibited from moving furniture to maintain social distancing guidelines.

Tapas Menu will be presented Monday August 10th. The Mirror Room Tapas Lounge will be serving the Bentley Room Restaurant Menu this weekend! We are excited to welcome you back!

The Mirror Room

We are excited that The Bentley Room Restaurant will be opening but The Mirror Room holds a bar license only and cannot open under Phase 1. But don't worry, you can can still enjoy dinner and cocktails in The Bentley Room!

We appreciate the many inquiries and excitement shared in anticipation of our return, but unfortunately The Mirror Room won’t be reopening under Phase 1.

We’re looking forward to serving Cenla again in the near future and will keep you updated once we have a date set to welcome you back!

See if your hotel will price match
See a difference in price when searching hotels? Call up the hotel you’ve got your eye on, and say that you want to reserve with them, but tell them that Expedia offers a more affordable rate, can they price match? If you ask politely, you’d be surprised how many times this works.

Check-in Chicken
Check-ins and check-outs may seem super strict, but they’re not. If you know you’re going to arrive early just call ahead. Usually hotel staff can schedule your room to be cleaned early, or will try to release another room for you

Not all rooms are made equal

No matter how many times you’re told that all the rooms are the same, they’re not. It’s worth asking for an upgrade or if you can’t get that, angle for a corner room. These are almost always bigger, and often have multiple aspect windows.

Hotel Bentley

The Hotel Bentley was constructed in 1907 by Joseph Bentley, a native of Pennsylvania who became wealthy in the lumber industry in Central Louisiana. Bentley was an eccentric fellow, and legend has it that the only reason he built the hotel is because he was turned down for a room in the former Ice House Hotel. Bentley was particularly impressed by the Capitol Hotel in Little Rock Arkansas, and asked architect George R. Mann to design him a hotel in Alexandria, opened to the public on August 10, 1908. In 1933 Bentley built a massive eight-story wing fronting Third Street to his hotel, adding more than 80 rooms, which was constructed by a local firm, Tudor-Ratcliffe. Bentley ensured the hotel could also serve as his personal residence. He carved out a large apartment on one of the top floors and installed a personal elevator; both the apartment and the private elevator remain today. During World War II, the United States military trained over a half of a million img024troops in the Alexandria area. The commanders of these troops Dwight Eisenhower and George S. Patton resided for long periods of time at the Hotel Bentley, sometimes joined by Omar Bradley and Henry Kissinger planning the historic Louisiana Maneuvers. Throughout the 1950s, the hotel continued to flourish, but by the late 1960s the hotel closed for business for nearly a decade. On November 15, 1979, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places and then in early 1980’s Buddy Tudor, a local developer, purchased and renovated the shuttered hotel, reopening it after millions of dollars in repairs to national acclaim in 1985. Mr. Tudor remained as owner for nearly 15 years and in the late 1990’s he sold to a group out of New Orleans, and less than a year later, they sold the hotel to Bob Dean who eventually closed it’s doors in 2004. On August 1, 2012, plans were announced for local developer Michael Jenkins to renovate and reopen Hotel Bentley, with luxury condos, a 96-room hotel, meeting rooms, and restaurant. On October 11, 2012, the sale from Dean to Hotel Bentley of Alexandria LLC, headed by local entrepreneur and preservationist Michael Jenkins was completed. The hotel has undergone a multi-million dollar restoration which included converting the seven-story tower portion of the property into condominiums. The original portion of the property will remain a hotel with 92-94 rooms.
