About the Hotel
The Maison Dupuy is situated at an ideal location in the French Quarter of New Orleans. A couple of blocks from the hustle and bustle of Bourbon Street, and the beauty of Jackson Square, the Maison Dupuy is located in the heart of the charming, residential section of the French Quarter. Picturesque townhouses framed with wrought iron fences line narrow streets. Gas lamps cast a path through moonlight causing the visitor to hesitate, wondering if he’s in modern America or has been transplanted somehow to an earlier century. There are hidden treasures within the graceful buildings that surround the hotel.
The central point of many of these dwellings is, in fact, outdoors. Beautiful courtyards containing lush, tropical gardens are a characteristic of French Quarter architecture. The look is exotic and unique. Modern day French Quarter style is a product of three centuries’ evolution and reflects a mix of many cultural influences.
The Maison Dupuy Hotel is ADA compliant with all regulations, including but not limited to ADA access throughout the hotel’s facilities, allowing service animals by persons with disabilities, and permitting the use of manually powered devices intended for the use by individuals with disabilities.

History - The Beginning of the Maison Dupuy
The present day Maison Dupuy Hotel may typify French Quarter eclectic grandeur, but through the years the site represented function more than form. It was originally the location of the nation’s first cotton press. Later utilized for industry, the intersection of Rue Toulouse and Rue Burgundy housed various sheet metal companies. It wasn’t until the 1970s that the location was developed for the purpose of a hotel. After years of submitting plans to the historical preservation board, the Dupuy brothers were successful in earning the necessary approval, and the Maison Dupuy opened its doors in 1973. The Maison Dupuy is the last hotel to have been built in the historic French Quarter, as the Vieux Carre Commission banned the future development of hotels in that neighborhood in 1975.
The hotel was created by joining five neighboring townhouses. The buildings reflect an ornate style with French doors, long windows and wrought iron balconies draping many of the five floors. The interior of these adjoined brick edifices marks the perimeter of the French Quarter’s largest and most scenic courtyard. The centerpiece of the property, the courtyard exemplifies the romantic charm of the neighborhood. A bubbling, three-tiered, marble fountain is a focal point. Guests can enjoy the large swimming pool and outdoor dining day and night when the weather permits. Lush, tropical foliage shades the courtyard and creates a sense of privacy and intimacy in what is actually a large space. The mood is magical in the courtyard at the Maison Dupuy. It is a lovely locale to enjoy a lingering meal, celebrate a special occasion or just relax and appreciate what is unique New Orleans charm.
