The appeal of any destination is what makes it unique, the experiences, attractions, and activities, local culture, along with the accommodation options. The Big Easy easily sets itself apart as a distinct city of the world with rich culture, historic architecture, world-class events, and of course, great accommodations. Visitors to New Orleans want to be in the heart of it all, and the best possible place to stay, especially if you love boutique accommodation, is the Maison Dupuy Hotel in the French Quarter.
NOLA is an extremely easy city to navigate, especially on foot. One of the oldest and most central parts of the city, the French Quarter, is where most visitors spend their leisure time. Home to world famous celebrations like Mardi Gras, Halloween, and Southern Decadence, the French Quarter plays host to millions of tourists each year looking to party and partake in a bit of the Cajun/creole life.
Maison Dupuy Hotel, often referred to as the French Quarter Hotel, is in the middle of the French Quarter, mere blocks from the bars, historical sites, the mighty Mississippi River, boutique shops, authentic restaurants, the world-famous Bourbon Street, and many of the other famous activities, to do in New Orleans.
Maison Dupuy Hotel is a beautiful boutique hotel. With its own stunning restaurant and bar on site with exceptional quality food, Maison Dupuy hotel is centered around a beautiful, relaxing cabana pool, tucked around a central courtyard. This is an ideal property for a gaycation–it’s affordable, luxury accommodation, in the heart of the French Quarter and just a hop, skip, and a jump from all the popular gay bars. Originally the site of the United States’ first cotton press, the property was bought and converted to a hotel in 1973, and was the last hotel built in the French Quarter.
Maison Dupuy was built by connecting five neighboring townhouses, connecting them with wrought iron balconies across all 5 floors. The courtyard and heated pool are the largest in the Quarter, and a stunning three-tiered fountain serves as the focal point among the tropical plant laden center of the hotel. The new streetcar line on Rampart Street connects the hotel and the French Quarter to the rest of the city, so getting around N’awlins is easy when staying at this gorgeous property.
All rooms feature free Wi-Fi access, 37” flat screen TVs, deluxe pillow-top mattress, in-room movies, and climate control. Best of all, each room features a spectacular view of the courtyard or French Quarter. A 24-hour fitness center, front desk, and valet, mean you can feel right at home at the Maison Dupuy Hotel.
