“Good location with very basic rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I was in New Orleans for a meeting and the meeting planner booked the hotel. I was driving and used the valet parking with no problem, but it's expensive at $36 a day. My room was on the 4th floor with a view of the courtyard, which was nice. The room itself was very basic. It was small, which was to be expected due to the age of the hotel. The bathroom is one of the smallest I've ever seen. The door barely cleared the front of the toilet. The room really shows its age, but it was clean. My biggest complaint is that the walls are very thin and I could hear the neighboring room partying at 3 am in the morning when they came back from Bourbon street. You are only 2 blocks away from all the action in the French Quarter. It wasn't a bad experience, but I would probably pick a different hotel if I was choosing the location.

Attended a business meeting at this hotel and stayed the night before and the night after. Sales staff was nice to work with in the pre-planning phase. Hotel is in a good location for getting around the French Quarter. Small lobby seems chaotic when very many people are there. Front desk staff helpful and friendly. We had a suite but it was very small, as you might expect in a historic hotel.

Interesting architecture, beautiful courtyard, cozy bar, and conveniently located. Rooms were overall pretty clean, bath fixtures were dated however, and air conditioning vent was noticeably dusty. From my experience the hotel staff were friendly, but the valet staff were rude, and appeared to be overwhelmed. The 18th century streets are small, so expect some traffic delays while waiting for valet service. A bit pricey, but like they say, "Location, location, location", and the Maison Dupuy puts you in the middle of it all.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard offer a nice view.

Thank you for your candid feedback keltoid. I am sorry to hear that you were less than pleased with our Valet team as that is not the norm. We have a complete hotel renovation coming in 2014 which will greatly enhance the guest experience with updated amenities and fixtures.
I look forward to welcoming you back the next time your travels bring you to New Orleans!

Just left yesterday was there since Tuesday,usually when I write a review it's a good one because all you ever see is the bad plus I work in the service industry so I understand. Most of the staff was just plain out rude and nasty with the exception of some of the cleaning staff earlier in the week as the week went on the bathroom tub was clogged, balcony looked like it wasn't cleaned in months I actually went to walgreens and bought cleaning wipes so I could have coffee in morning and not sit at a sticky table (which makes the price of a room double) there were stains on the sheets which I changed myself after complaining again nasty!!! Breakfast was ok but super expensive, go down the block and get better food for cheaper. The room service $90 (sucked) had to go online for the menu anyways I received 2 separate bills 1,048.67 and another 1,162.34 but my card was charged 1,359.07 weird right I was overcharged room tax 2 days and each price was a different amount and a charge for room service which I paid cash and tipped $20 oh ya the cleaning lady starts banging on my door at 10:30 talking about when are you leaving I need to clean your room I told her at 11:00 at check out this lady calls me a b**ch under her breath while walking away, oh no I just spent over a thousand dollars in this place lady your gonna be lucky if you have a job after I'm done with dealing with that comment. There are real nice places in that area I would suggest taking your money somewhere appreciated.

This hotel is very charming and close to everything. We booked online at a discount website and then once we returned to New Orleans from a cruise we stayed here another night but booked through the hotel itself. Our First room was small with no view and crammed together. Shower was always hot and the room was clean. The room we booked with the hotel personally was very large with a court yard view also very clean. We really enjoyed this hotel. The concierge wasn't very good tho only tried to push her companies that she represents and isn't very helpful when it come to New Orleans its self. Front desk was more useful

We appreciate your review of the hotel mandy_terry333. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay so much that you booked your second leg of your journey with us. I would always recommend booking directly with the hotel. I do apologize that your interaction with the Concierge did not go well.

I stayed here on Halloween - so price was probably jacked up due to time of year. Front desk staff were a bit "stuffy;" however, the rest of staff (doorman, luggage guy, room service) were super friendly! The location was perfect - 2 blocks from Bourbon. The room was extremely small, but, since it was just me, I survived. Also, I booked a room with a "city/street view." I guess I got a street view, but it was a small, dank street - not really what I would consider a "view." The bed was so comfortable - it was like sleeping on a cloud! I would stay here again, but only if I got a better rate.

Room Tip: Don't bother booking city/street view - not worth it.

stayed 3 nights here and it was an excellent experience. quick friendly checkin. One restaurant attendance not great sadly. Got seated for breakfast quickly then ignored until we had to ask for service. One server takes order, disappears and then next server comes takes same order again and eventually food arrives but had to ask for cutlery and food very mediocre with reheated parts of same. Too bad because other staff helpful and attentive and the room was quaint and clean

Room Tip: ask for a room with a balcony
