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’.

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.

When we arrived the front door was held open for us by an old piece of wood. There is no longer “hotel staff” and we got our room key out of a lock box. The bottom floor has been left in the middle of a reno project; no furniture, wires hanging from the walls and a vacuum in the corner...but we never saw anyone working. Our room was not what we expected, superficially clean, but dirt and dust bunnies under the furniture and in the corners, a used bar of soap on the ledge above the shower and stuff (hair pin, clothing tag) in the dresser drawer. The curtains were hanging haphazard from the sagging curtain rod and one of the blackout curtains had large sun rotted holes. The court yard was tired and the fountain was full with green sludge. It must have been lovely at one time, but it’s been a while. However, I must say that the linens were crisp and clean, the bed was moderately comfortable and the shower was great.

We stayed here because this was where Charles Kuralt of "Charles Kuralt's America" and CBC Sunday Morning" stayed and loved. Well...that was 40 years ago. The staff were GREAT but their hands were tied as the owner was a son of a cigarette magnet and he has "given" this project to his girlfriend who really does not care about the hotel AT ALL! Decorative storm blinds were hanging askew and the staff fixed it by propping it up with chair...and stayed that way as we were there...The room was dirty....the bed kept breaking and our mattress kept falling to the floor...sad...sad...Great location...run down as know one cares other than the struggling staff who, per them, do not get the O.K. to fix anything!

Fantastic place! I came with my girlfriend Machelle from Florida, she picked the hotel. There is no better choice in the French quarter!!! You are feet from Bourbon Street, the center basically of everything! Back courtyard overlooks the court if two sisters, fabulous meals! Pat O'Brien's is a block away! If I had unlimited funds I couldn't have picked a better place! There were at least 3 different people running the desk and everyone was the best! I thank all of you Immensley! I'll be back and this will be my choice of a place to stay. If you aren't available for the dates I need, I will change the dates!!! Lovely place!!!

Worse hotel we have ever stayed in. The staff was courteous but thats all. They advertise themselves as a luxury hotel with a price tag accordingly Although it’s an old historic hotel the rooms have not been upgraded .The breakfasts they say are included have is a measly stale bagel and coffee no jams or any fruit whatsoever. They have no housekeeping on certain days.No internet in bedroom of the suite. The air conditioning was defective as well as the pullout couch.one day the washing machine broke down so no fresh towels. The printer broke down so we couldn’t print our boarding passes. I won’t go into the cleanliness of the rooms. All in all a disaster!!!!
