Hotel Maison de Ville Review

A collection of historic townhouses and "bachelor quarters" make up this Big Easy charmer, renovated and reopened in 2012 to offer a delightfully secluded vibe amid the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter. The property boasts an intimate atmosphere thanks to its residential past; the main building dates back to the 1780s, and was once home to the apothercary Antoine Amede Peychaud, who created New Orleans' now-legendary Sazerac cocktail. Elegance and romance abound: Tapestry-covered chairs, a fire flickering in the sitting room, and antiques-furnished rooms all contribute to a 19th-century feel. Some rooms are in the former "bachelor quarters" in the courtyard, others are on the upper floors of the main house, and there's also a two-story suite in the carriage house. Complimentary Wi-Fi and refreshments are part of the experience, and the hotel often hosts fun activities, like the three-day, adults-only Ghost Hunter "summer camp."

    Screwed by Maison de Ville

    After looking forward to staying at Maison de Ville, our flight out of Dallas along with all other flights for the next 30 hours were cancelled due to icy conditions in New Orleans. After hiding from me for 3 days, I finally got through to someone at the hotel to inquire about refunding or at least rescheduling my reservation. I was told emphatically that they would not refund a dime of my reservation nor would they even entertain the idea about crediting me for a future stay. Steer clear of this place. Unless my bank credits me back, they have screwed me out of $800.
