“One of the most incredible hotels”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

It is hard to explain how absolutely amazing this property and my stay was. The room was clean and charming, the location was perfect, and every member of the staff (including Trina) was welcoming and kind. Walking into this hotel where you can see Bourbon Street from the balcony was like going back home and it always amazed me how incredibly calm and serene it was inside of the hotel with the crazy nightlife New Orleans is known for was literally three buildings away. Let me break down the hotel for anyone who wants all of the details like I always do:

The location:
This location is incredible and I cannot speak of it more highly. This hotel is easy to locate and drive to and while parking is not available at the hotel, the hotel staff easily guided us to different parking locations and suggested the prices that may be at each. You are parking in a city so you are bound to pay the price. The hotel is perfectly located for people looking for the nightlife on Bourbon or even people who are just looking to enjoy the food and culture of the rest of New Orleans because everything is in easy walking distance.

The room:
The rooms are the great size with high ceilings and large windows. We stayed in a room with a joined balcony overlooking Toulouse, but after spending time in their courtyard I wouldn't mind a room facing that incredibly peaceful fountain. There is a fan in the room that we originally thought was going to be loud enough that we could not sleep, but we were totally wrong and it covered up some of the noise outside letting us sleep peacefully and neither of us woke up once during our two night stay. The room did get a little hot, but they asked if we needed additional fans and we declined and considering this trip was in the middle of August, it would be foolish to think that any place in this city wouldn't get a little warm. There are also endless cans of soda and bottles of water as well as some snacks available at all times, which was a HUGE plus!

The staff:
Normally in hotels, I feel like my experience is streamlined and I don't talk to anyone unless I'm checking in or out, and maybe that's why my time at the Maison de Ville felt so special. Each person I encountered and talked to made the experience so amazing I felt like I was leaving friends behind when I left. One night we came back we even sat on the stairs for thirty minutes with two of the hotel employees discussing the city and already gather tips and hints for our future trips. Their hospitality along with the beauty and peacefulness of the hotel made this a trip I will never forget and I can't imagine staying at any other location when I visit this beautiful city.

Room Tip: We stayed in room number 3, which is the room shown in their photos with the teal wall and the chand...

This is the ultimate place for a romantic weekend in New Orleans! The excellent staff was caring and attentive to every detail. The rooms are filled with antiques and chandeliers. Despite being just a few steps from Bourbon St., we never noticed the noise and commotion going on around us. Even though we were eager to get out and see the sights of the city, it was hard to get out in the mornings because it was so tempting to lie around in the extremely comfortable bed and luxuriate in our surroundings. Our handmade voodoo doll is now a wonderful memento of our experience!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard are probably quieter, but we never heard a sound facing the street.

The moment I walked in the door of the Hotel Maison de Ville I KNEW this was going to be an awesome experience..It's a romantic, boutique hotel. This hotel is beautifully decorated with lots of wood and fine materials. The room I stayed in was so comfortable. The bed was the most comfortable bed I had ever slept in at a Hotel or anywhere else, come to think about it...linens and pillows felt like sleeping in a cloud. The courtyard was so nice, boganvillas everywhere and bricks and tables and wood and great place to sit and relax and wine down...great ambiance! The staff is wonderful and helpful and so caring. Made sure you are having the best time in New Orleans...will never stay anywhere else as long as Hotel de Ville is open and running! 5 STARS and congratulations to the owners for making this a unique and wonderful experience for us weary travelers...thank you!

Room Tip: All the rooms I saw were great.

A wonderful hotel. In the heart of the French Quarter and it looks and feels like it belongs there. The lobby is comfortable and the courtyard is the picture of a New Orleans courtyard. The rooms were a good size and nicely furnished. I would stay here every time I come New Orleans.

This hotel is right in the middle of the action...great location! It's right around the corner from Bourbon Street. I thought that it would be loud since our room had a balcony overlooking the street, but it was surprisingly quiet. The staff is fantastic and are extremely helpful! They gave us great ideas on where to eat (Chartres House and Pat O'briens was awesome). The complementary breakfast pastries were a nice surprise too. We loved this place so much that we've already booked a return stay!

The hotel was in great location, stayed in the Tennessee Williams Suite which was very nice and bed was extremely comfortable. The suite was also very spacious and the staff was very friendly. I enjoyed sitting in the courtyard and listen to Jazz music that was filtering in from the French Quarter. Overall experience was great, I will definitely return.

Room Tip: Stay at the Tennessee Williams Suite, great accessibly to the courtyard.

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
