This is a place with chatacter built in 1783. However for the $400 anight price it lacks any real amenities. Plus no elevator for luggage if you have a lot which we did 5 suitcases. When leaving the hotel today we had no assistance from the manager on duty who just sat behinf his desk looking at the computer while...

This was my first time in New Orleans although partner had been there before during days in sales. Wanted to make it a special weekend in case I never return...it was perfect. The hotel is located between Bourbon and Royal Streets. It is small and intimate. When I saw ear plugs in the room I thought uh oh...might be noisy...

When a blizzard in February shut down every airport in the Northeast, our flight, along with thousands of others, was cancelled. The impacts were so wide, the airlines were unable to rebook us for many days past our original travel dates. The hotel was gracious enough to offer us a raincheck. Unfortunately, they were not as gracious in enabling us...

Love this spot. The French Quarter (for a first-timer) is charming in the mornings, but as soon as those looking for a party wake up and come out, it becomes a raucous beer- soaked wild street party. But...Maison de ville is a serious oasis. Definitely plan in advance & stay in the Tennessee Williams Suite. Our room was too tiny...

I absolutely loved staying in this hotel. I was visiting to do research for my senior thesis, and wanted to be in the middle of the French Quarter. This location is perfect. Steps from bourbon street, a very short walk from Jackson Square, and so many great restaurants right down the street. I stayed in one of the Superior rooms...

I loved New Orleans and this hotel is by far the reason why! This place is so quirky and beautiful I couldn't imagine not staying here again when I come back. It's located in the middle of everything! All you have to do is step outside and the possibilities are endless! The housekeepers are amazing, so helpful and even invited...

Very attentive staff. Everyone was warm and friendly. Location was fantastic and close to all the action. The courtyard ambiance with music in the background can not be beat. We loved our stay and look forward to retuning.

I got married in New Orleans earlier this month and stayed in the Tennessee Williams Suite for 3 nights and I really can't imagine a better place I could've chosen. On the day of the wedding, my bridesmaids and I got ready in the suite and took some really beautiful photos in the courtyard. We sat by the fountain and...

The best hotel for a New Orleans visit. Hotel is located in walking distance to casino, french quarter shops, aquarium and Bourbon street. We are very comfortable staying here because streets to all the above attractions are well lit. When you walk through lobby you feel the old New Orleans ambiance. Loved family pics in furniture of old New Orleans....

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Maison de Ville, whose name in French means “Town House”, was just that. A two- storied dwelling rebuilt by Jean Baptista Lilie Sarpy around 1800 after the second disastrous fire.Across the picturesque courtyard with its cast-iron three-tiered fountain are two additional buildings. The historic former slave quarters are believed to have been constructed as early as 1762 and are one of the oldest structures in the State. Also off the courtyard is the old carriage house, now a charming two-story suite.An early resident of the home was Antoine Amede Peychaud, an apothecary who developed a concoction of bitters and brandy, known as the Sazerac. No doubt Peychaud’s circle of friends and patients widened as the popularity and fame of this first “cocktail” spread. In many Creole homes of the time the first floor was used for commercial purposes, as a store or office, but we know that Peychaud maintained his pharmacy on nearby Royal Street. Today, Peychaud’s bitters are still used to make the official cocktail of the State of Louisiana- the Sazerac.Before he purchased his own house in the French Quarter Tennessee Williams often stayed in room number 9, where he completed “A Streetcar Named Desire” and drank Sazeracs in the hotel courtyard. The room opens onto the patio, and much of Dick Cavett’s 1974 interview with Williams was filmed there, surrounded by the lush semi-tropical greenery and flowers the playwright enjoyed.Among the contemporary guests of note at the hotel: Elizabeth Taylor, Dan Akroyd, Robert Redford, Michael Jackson, Julia Roberts and many others.Hotel Maison de Ville is proud to be part of New Orleans’ historic past and present. Our buildings are over two and a half centuries old. Our endeavors of maintenance and upkeep are focused on keeping them in their original condition as much as ‘historically possible’. ... more   less
