“Not quite a 4 Star”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times previously ,but January was our first visit under the new ownership. I rated this hotel 4 star,but it is actually between 3 & 4 ,but closer to 4 .
This hotel is not plush & not everything works.....the rooms need to be updated & repaire in order To qualify as 4 star . The hotel has ambiance , a great location , & superior internal patio.Other than the manager,the staff seems to have had little training dealing with the public.They were not rude just not very helpful. For anyone who has allergies be forwarned a cat has basically free roam of the Inn; I am somewhat allergic & only had a small problem.Coffee & pastries are provided in the mornings.....about average .
Actually, Hotel Maison de Ville is a B&B rather than a hotel.

We have stayed here twice before and have liked it more each time - centrally located in the French Quarter - just far enough from Bourbon to be a quiet retreat. Staff is very accommodating. Will definitely stay here again next time we come to NOLA

I recently stayed here for a small group birthday. It was my first time to NoLo.
I am so excited by this old world set up. It is off bourbon street so it isn't so crowded. The staff especially Adrianne were very helpful and able to accommodate all of our party and individual needs. No request was out of their comfort zone. Drake the grounds keeper offered to help me set up for the party without any hesitation . He also waited outside for the airport shuttle and took my bags out for me. I loved the at home setting with coffee bar available at all times.
If you are looking for an authentic experience in the French quarter, This is it!
We are already planning our return. Also we went in December so the decorations were beautiful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the courtyard.if the weather is nice you can leave the door open! The suite is...

What a perfect place to stay - especially during the Christmas holidays. The hotel has a historical charm with updated necessities. Close proximity to many places in the Quarter. The staff is so accommodating and tried to assist with every request on where to go, eat, etc.

The history behind this small hotel is fascinating and photos charming. There are a main building and some outbuildings, some of which are under renovation. We were put in the former carriage house across the courtyard from the main building. The two story space was very small, and tired - cracked bathroom fixtures and the bathroom too small for more than one person to stand in at a time. Badly in need of painting and general updating. A block off Bourbon so a little noisy at night though not terrible. Pleasant staff and nice little courtyard. Small parlor w good coffee and small pastries in morning. This may be a good place again after renovation but doesn't live up to its reputation currently especially w so many other choices

This was a great stay in the heart of the French Quarter with an old fashioned feel, but updated throughout to accommodate the current traveler. The rooms have great character and the lounge/lobby is well provisioned with the things you need whenever you need them. The courtyard is quite serene with a nice fountain and plenty of lounging. Not you typical hotel...in a good way.

My husband and I always travel to NOLA for the Labor Day weekend. Now, keeping in mind, this is Southern Decadence, so the city can be very busy and loud. This wonderful hotel is 1/2 block off Bourbon. I was concerned about this, the noise and all. We were in a balcony room right on Toulouse and could see Bourbon easily from our balcony. Outside, you could hear all the goings on, but when I stepped back in our room - nice and quiet. The hotel staff was nothing but fabulous! The housekeeper was wonderful, she took very good care of us. We have always stayed at 'big box' hotels when we come to NOLA, but never again. This is a small inn, we only saw two other guests as long as we were there (4 days). It is quiet and inviting.

Room Tip: Room 3 is beautifully appointed with shared balcony.

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
