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."
