THE HISTORIC MAISON ST. CHARLES NEW ORLEANS GARDEN DISTRICT HOTEL
The glory days of New Orleans occurred during the pre-Civil War era. At this time, New Orleans was one of the largest and richest cities in the young United States. The Port of New Orleans was a bustling center of activity, with commerce from all over the world passing over the wooden wharves.
Maison St. Charles Hotel is located in a scenic area of New Orleans known as the Lower Garden District. It was here that many American merchants settled when they first arrived in New Orleans. While the homes become grander as one moves up St. Charles Avenue, the Garden District continues to serve as a fine introduction to the city as a whole.
Five of the buildings that are part of the Maison St. Charles were originally antebellum homes. These buildings are recognized as historically important and are listed with the United States Department of the Interior. Our lovingly-restored homes feature high ceilings and parlors lit by crystal chandeliers. Our guest suites are housed within these buildings, each presenting an individual design statement worthy of its age and significance.
Many of the walls at the Maison St. Charles have been transformed into art canvases that portray New Orleans life as well as the culture of South Louisiana. Our muralist, Mr. Robert Dafford, is a Louisiana native and has completed over 100 public works in the United States, Canada and France
