History

Established in 1974.

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. The Dupuy brothers were successful in earning the necessary approval, and the Maison Dupuy opened its doors in 1974.

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.

I checked into this hotel last night at about 9:30 pm. After a long flight I was met with blasting music coming from a wedding in the courtyard that continued until midnight. It was so loud that I could not hear the desk clerk - should have been an omen. The room was nothing like what is presented on the web. It was filthy and worn. The upholstery was stained, the walls and woodwork scratched marked and dirty. The "best" was the mystery blob that started on the woodwork and flowed onto the carpet and the splash on one wall that dripped to the floor. The desk clerk told me "they paint every day!" The black smudges around the door knobs say no paint has touched this place in a while. I turned back the sheets to find hair in the bed and a large "curly" hair on the lamp shade. More mystery stains on the bathroom door, dirty bathroom floor, mold infested shower head, etc. The bath tub/shower is finished in the "latest" fiberglass surround so don't believe the marble bathroom hype. No minibar - those have been removed along with the in room safes. You have to ask for a coffee maker ("if they still have any")  The hair dryer got so hot in my hand I couldn't hold it  and then it would change speed on its own.  Makeup mirror didn't work because the switch was broken off. After the maid finished cleaning the room again and changing the sheets at 12, she brought me a free breakfast coupon from the manager. No reduction on the $219 dollar room fee. I checked out this morning to go to the Sheraton and gave them a list of all the problems and the coupon. I told them I feared eating there.  If the rooms were this dirty what is the kitchen like?

Cute hotel with a fabulous location. Loved the courtyard pool! Would definitely stay again. I will be sure to get a room with a balcony overlooking the courtyard

There are a couple of recent reviews nailing Maison Dupuy with one star.  Having just stayed there (Nov 2010) I think they are being unfair.
The first room I was given reeked horribly of smoke, so I asked for a non-smoking room.  I was given a room that didn't smell like smoke, but reeked horribly of paint.  Fortunately, when I turned the AC on, the smell cleared out overnight.  I did not see any of the scuffed walls or warped ceilings mentioned by other reviewers.  The bathrooms are definitely in need of remodeling, but in both of my rooms and my brother/sister's room, they were perfectly clean.  My bedside table was missing a knob.
This is really a nice hotel in need of an overhaul, but it was a very comfortable place to stay for five nights.  It has a lot more personality than a chain hotel, and the location is perfect.  It's close enough to the action of Bourbon St. while being far enough away to be peaceful.  One of my guidebooks said it was in a rough area (Treme is half a block north), but we always felt safe walking around at night.  There is a great bar, and the restaurant is fantastic.  Really good.  (I'm talking about the main restaurant, not the bar dining area.)
There are a few downsides that keep it at three stars for me.  First, the shower heads were so flow-restricted that the water dribbled out.  Second, as mentioned before, it does need a remodel.  Third, the wifi is very spotty, and frequently cut out.  Next, the courtyard is a popular wedding spot, so I had to endure loud wedding music a couple nights in a row.  They cut it off before midnight, but if you have to get up early it could be a problem.  (You might want to avoid rooms facing the courtyard.)  Finally, there are some  service issues here.  The valets are all messed up, and we had a lot of trouble getting our car out.  They have no system at all.  And checking out there was a ridiculous line, but only one person working the desk.
Overall, I'd recommend this hotel if you are looking for something comfortable and convenient, and can tolerate spotty service and a hotel that feels a little lived in.  I would definitely come back, but if I feel the need for five stars I'm going to the Windsor Court.

when dominiques was in this hotel, the food was superior to the current chef who took his place....  however, I'll trade that anytime just knowing that they got rid of that horrific manager/somelier that used to enjoy causing grief for everyone.

great place for a wedding, and the pool is DEEP.  the jacuzzi heat isn't there, but the cocktails are, and music too.  the rooms are quite nice, and if you've got the balcony rooms, you've got the best.

parking is extremely overpriced.  and the bartender?  wasn't aware of her own special on the specials board.  Fact is?  she triple charged us for the bloody mary's.  When she realized that?  she should've immediatly given us back our money, but she didn't.  She had an attitude, whereas the banquet manager was SO much nicer, and she was out on the patio/pool area.

thank god most of the stuffiness has left this place.  there is such a new "air" about the place.  thank god.  

there's a really nice house located on the premises, for wedding parties, and special occasions.

I'm glad we gave The Maison Dupuy another visit.  There have been major strides in the maintenance of the hotel.  We had great interactions with everyone on the staff.  Erin really made every effort to make our accommodations special not only for us, but our five friends that came with us. I was glad to see that Jesse is still at the Bistreaux in the hotel.  He remembered our names, what we were drinking as well as specific conversations we had last year.  He is truly an asset to the Maison Dupuy and makes the experience worth the visit.  The people in guest relations were very responsive to our requests.  The only thing that could still be improved upon is the bathrooms and the cleanliness.  I know we were here on a busy weekend and the ladies in housekeeping were friendly and accommodating, but the bathrooms could use a remodel or deep cleaning.The location is great (as mentioned in most of the other reviews) and the people here were friendly, fun and knowledgeable. The beds are comfortable, but I felt very tall, since my feet hung over the edge of the bottom of the bed. When I was checking out, I saw that the rooms were being fully taken apart and thoroughly cleaned.  I may not have given this hotel 4 stars normally, but the efforts and improvements they made really impressed me. I will be back.

The common thread in these reviews seems to be that the hotel is very convenient and the beds are comfortable. The hotel is and the beds are but this is where the good stuff ends.
The front desk staff are completely useless. I had called a few days before we arrived to confirm everything check in day, check out day times and everything. When I arrived, they had me down for checking out a day early. The man working at the front desk acted as thought there was nothing he could do and completely indifferent. Then I presented my booking confirmation which showed the correct dates. He never once apologized for the mistake, and didn't tell me everything was fine until after I asked. Then he proceeds to tell me to read the placard in front of him "from start to finish and don't ask me questions until your done". So I read the placard. The placard then states that you will be charged $50, per night for incidentals. Uhm....no? I had paid everything up front, it was all squared away. If they had wanted to keep a card on file like they do in Vegas I would have been totally fine with it. I understand a hotel has to look out for their property. I'm sorry but $150 just in case something might maybe happen. (We were staying 3 nights.) I don't think so.  I had done tons of research before booking anything anywhere. There is no mention of this fee so I could have prepared myself for it. I flat out refused. In the end he only put $50 on hold until we checked out. I still wasn't very happy but it was better that $150 and I was on vacation so lets just get this show on the road. What irked me after all of this though is that he was never friendly. He acted like I was a HUGE inconvenience.
The days that we were there we fine. Nothing major happened. The hotel internet either never worked or wasn't strong enough to load even the google home page. So we used my phone as a wifi hotspot. Thank you technology.
So then we go to check out. The woman at the desk had attitude. Yes she smiled at me but you could tell from her body language she just wanted me out of her face. I asked if I could get the hotel to call a cab to take us to the airport around 1:30. She told me to just talk to the bellhop and waived me away. Gosh ok thank you ever so much for being completely dismissive. The first bellhop I spoke with was AWESOME. He was helpful and answered all of my questions. I guess he went on break when it was time to get everything into the van. Every hotel I have ever stayed at the bellhop loaded your bag for you and you tip them. This guy pointed said "There's your cab" and walked off. Cool thanks, no tip for you my friend.
I am going back to New Orleans in a few months with my mother. Needless to say we will NOT be staying at the Maison Dupuy nor will I ever recommend this establishment to anyone. I have never been so disappointed with a hotel.

For my first visit to new Orleans, I was lucky enough to go with twelve of my friends. We all enjoyed how beautiful the courtyard was and although the staff was some if the most rude people I encountered on the whole trip. The woman at the information desk was very warm and welcoming as well as helpful. The bellhop was also wonderful and it was his first day. I do have to say however, though the rooms were very clean at first and the beds were extremely comfortable, one of the rooms that three of my friends stayed at ended up breaking out pretty severely and was informed by a doctor that it was in fact bedbugs. It can't be coincidental that three  girls that don't Luce together left new Orleans with this. Were all loved our trip but have become quite disgusted now and though this was just a complete oversight and accident, it is ridiculous that a hotel of this caliber could allow that kind of mishap.

Stayed here in Jan last year. Got a good deal on Book It  online and got the room for about  70 bucks a nite.  Decent hotel with a great location, just a few blocks off Bourbon St.  Also close to Rampart if you are more adventurous. Drinks were a bit pricey in the bar, but they poured some stiff booze to be fair. Nice little courtyard with coffee service in the am. Did not eat here, but the menu looked interesting. Certainly an ok place to stay in NOLA, especially if you get an internet deal.

When we arrived at the hotel, I loved it.  It was beautiful, the staff was friendly, and the location was perfect for us, a short walk to wherever we wanted to go.  Our room was large and comfortable, as a matter of fact the bed is probably the most comfortable I've ever slept in in a hotel.  So why am I rating the hotel 1 star?  Because the morning after we returned home I discovered my corporate credit card had been stolen out of my wallet while it was locked up in my room.  Over $800 had attempted to be charged by the time I discovered the card missing. I had to postpone a business trip while the credit card company overnighted me a new card.  I contacted the hotel and the security manager suggested I had left my balcony door open and that a stranger had taken the card.  I am quite sure we had the balcony door locked the entire time.  So unfortunately what had been a great stay at this hotel turned out to be a disaster.  If you choose to stay here make sure you find a way to secure all your valuables.

The folks at Maison Dupuy were absolutely great. The property is beautiful and very well maintained. We had a great visit from check-in to check-out. The pool area was fantastic and must needed with the hot, hot New Orlean days. We arrived early and was able to check our bags with valet and recieved a call when our room was ready, which was before actual check-in time. The onsite bar/restaurant BISTREAUX has a particularly nice and friend bartender, Jesse that also helped make the hotel experience great. Would totally recommend and hope to get to stay there again.

Great hotel in the middle of the French quarter in the historic Vieux Carre district - close enough to Bourbon street to be part of the action but thankfully out of the way enough so you can actually get some peace and quiet and sleep!
Lovely sized rooms with large beds, large tv and nice bathrooms. Fantastic air conditioning and thankfully not a cockroach or mosquito in sight!
A fabulous hotel with great dining, highly recommended

This hotel was probably really nice in its prime but it has gotten old and is in need of a face lift and cleaning.  The carpeting throughout is dingy.  The hot tub was down for the entire 4 days we were there.  One set of elevators never worked.  The ice machine on our floor was broken.  The toilet in our bathroom had permanent stains.   I also notice light bulbs out in the lobby.

My husband and I stayed two nights for $150 a night. The good: comfy bed, quiet clean and convenient to bourbon street. The bad: wifi down, parking exorbitant, bathrooms dated and poorly ventilated, breakfast starts at $14 so you probably won't be eating at the hotel. Probably would have stayed somewhere cheaper if we had to do it over again.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at this unique French Quarter Hotel. Our room was great - large and clean. It was quiet and convenient to all tourist attractions.The pool was delightful and dining in both of their restaurants was fantastic. Check in and check out was efficient with little wait time. The staff was helpful and cheerful. We'll be back !!!!

First, let me start off by saying that the Maison Dupuy *previously* was awesome. I've stayed there for the last 5 years for both Mardi Gras and Halloween.

Most recently, I stayed at the Maison for Halloween in Oct 2010. I made my reservation in February to ensure that I was able to get a courtyard balcony, as my brother and wife were coming with for the first time and I wanted to get a great room.

Upon arrival, I was told that all that was available was a room on the top floor with a "courtyard view", which turned out to be a 1' x 1' window. I was less than pleased. The manager on duty told me "Hon, it is what it is, we've got two weddings booked this weekend so we've had to bump people." No discount on the rate ($239/night), nothing.

Once I got up to the room, it was *horrible*. Knobs were broken off of the cabinets, the mini-bar/fridge was now "decoration" and not usable, and the carpet was disgusting. After two days, we checked out and checked in to another hotel.

If you can, steer clear of the Maison. Expensive for what they're (now) providing.

I am currently writing this review from the hotel itself. I am sitting in my room trying not to breathe since it smells like a chain smoker lived here. We checked in on a Thursday evening and our first room was completely trashed. At first I thought they gave us a room already occupied, but it was just never cleaned. The twelve pack of empties beer bottles were a clear sign that housekeeping never did their job. The second room they gave us was cleaner except for the urine in and on the toilet. Our third room is better, but stinks of smoke and has a minor leak in the bathroom.

Our plan was to check out the hotel to see if we wanted to have our wedding here, but it's now completely off the list.

I know the place is old, but there is no excuse for dirty rooms. I would not recommend this place.

I'm a little confused, everyone keeps commenting on the beds and how comfortable they are. It's nothing special as far as a hotel goes. I'm staying here right now on a trip with friends and am not impressed. The courtyard is nice but that is overshadowed by the rude staff. Upon parking my car I was met with hostility and told that I couldn't park if someone else in my room had a car. When I asked if it would be easy to get my car bc I had to pick up a friend at the airport they told me my friend should "just take a cab". Then upon entering the lobby to check in the desk woman was equally as rude as the valet . The only plus is the location but I'm sure you can find something just as good. I've been to NOLA several times and had a better hotel experience. What bothers me is that I read the response to the reviews on yelp from management and it is very generic. They comment on wanting your stay to be great and their service to be good but it doesn't seem like they've done much to improve it.

After reading the other reviews I must say that I'm very surprised.  I think the location is perfect, close enough to Bourbon but peaceful.  We had a room facing the courtyard and not the street.

The staff was courteous and the place was very clean.  Our room was cleaned daily.  

Concierge was very helpful and recommended good places where the locals go.

I really don't have any complaints.   But I also didn't act like I was living there.  We just slept, freshened up and ate there a couple of times.  

Would stay there again for sure.

A group of friends visited 2011 Mardi Gras this year & about 1/3 of us stayed at this hotel. Quiet, mostly clean, just not so efficient.

We stayed in one of the suites, 1 king bed & parlor room. Windows were about 26 inches wide with no view - nbd, as we mostly were not at the hotel/room.

Asked for a coffee/tea machine [this needs to be requested - even though on their website page it is listed as one of the in-room amenities] - but never arrived, over our 4 night stay, asked several times. Guess they have an anti-in room coffee/tea policy.

The in-drawer mini-safe is a nice discreet feature - lock away your cash & pocket cams, etc. when you are out.

The hotel is a boutique, probably privately owned - and run as such - more like a larger bed & breakfast.

The coolest thing about this boutique hotel is that they have a jacuzzi and a heated pool in the courtyard, open till fairly late, 11 pm. They have a 24 hour exercise room, which is decently equipped and rarely used.

Next time, I will stay at one of the "corporate" hotels along Canal, the River with a view & more efficient, national chain standards & service. The cost was about the same - just book the room in advance - we waited until about 7 days before & paid the procrastinator gets the high priced, low value room.

***

BISTREAUX - lobby restaurant. 1001 Rue Toulouse, New Orleans Louisiana 70112 [I met Eva Braun here aka. woman serving drinks behind the bar]

Bland, off mark & barely warm food - unexceptional service and
indifferent staff. This place would be bankrupt except for the stranded hotel guests looking to avoid walking around the rain in the French Quarter.

Efficiency & speed - molasses running uphill would be faster. If you
are trying to eat quickly & then get out to explore - you don't want to
be here.

Are you a person of color? Ever been called the n word? A chink? Spic? Kaike? Then you will want to stay away from this place.
Unless of course you support racism, bias, and are a card carrying
member of the uber race.

I was called Charlie by the female bartender & only several hours
later figured out what it meant.  It was spoken in a direct, clearly audible, and matter of fact way, which leads me to believe that  it is
common place at this establishment. Several "Southern Gentlemen"
were at the bar area that early afternoon, way past hangover period -
they said and did nothing. Did I just stumble upon an impromptu Klan
meeting?

Only afterward, when I learned that there are several large
communities of Vietnamese in the Big Easy - New Orleans did I
put it together. My mind typically does not go down that path because I mostly live and travel to places where this kinda thing does not exist in 2011 - but apparently ignorance & racism are still alive in the Big Easy.

I am sure that 99.99% of the people in new Orleans are decent folk,
god fearing Christians that respect people of any color. Some of the rest are employed here.

In the French quarter you can barely walk 15 yards without passing a
restaurant, so why spend your hard earned money at this place? Unless of course you prefer the company of Eva Braun, et al.

The local Ihop had better tasting food, fast service, and wait staff that were both cheerful & efficient!

Beautiful hotel, and close to Bourbon Street, but awful service!
I came here for a wedding and was helping the bridal party with last-minute details, and had such a difficult time working with the front desk, indoor staff and valet! The valet guys were impatient, rude, and not helpful at all. The front desk and indoor staff were also rude and impatient, and made things so difficult for us. The bridal party was spending a ton of money at this place and the LEAST the staff could have done was smile. They were awful!
A pretty atmosphere is not worth the hassle of staying here. Plus, the restaurant food left much to be desired.
Stay somewhere else!!

Good stay mostly, except for the time when the back wall of the room was vibrating and the front desk had no explanation but told me they would call back to let me know.  After about 30 minutes the vibration was gone, but no one called me back.

Overall the room was comfortable and the location is great, but the staff was not very friendly.

Great location far enough away from Bourbon Street to be quiet but close enough to stumble back to.  Easy access to I-10.  The room was small and pretty basic.  The bed was comfortable.  The bathroom was not very clean and the shower did not drain well.  Once alerted to the shower issue, they did something that made it better but there was still standing water in the shower.  There was a mini car in the room but it did not work and was really dirty.
The staff was friendly and efficient. The pool and courtyard looked very inviting.  It is expensive to park here (i think it was $35/day), but once in you can come and go as you please.  I did not drive the whole time I was there.  It was nice to know my car was safe and not being towed or given a ticket.

For New Oleans, this place is great!  A few blocks off of Bourbon Street, you can park your car and walk to most places that you want to visit.

New Orleans Birthday Trip = Sleeping in the French Quarter

In all honesty, 3 stars is pretty much accurate for the Maison Dupuy. Good but not great, classy not trashy, and pretty much A-OK.

Venue:
The Dupuy is classic French Quarter, from its archway doors to its second floor balconies it screams traditional. The downside is that also means traditional sized rooms, as in smallish. Granted, I'm not a huge person, I'm actually on the short end, and after living in Manhattan for years, let's face it, most hotels seem huge in comparison to your apartment. But, when you're traveling with a 6'3" giant, cramped spaces get quite annoying. The bathroom was small, as in two people were really one too many, and the bedroom only had narrow pathways around the bed.

We were on an inside balcony with a king bed, so I gave it to them, except for when I found out that the balcony was shared--with children. You may not know me well, but children only like me because they know I hate them. Like your friend who hates dogs but yours loves her, that's me but with kids. These little 4 and 5 year olds weren't a horrible problem, but let's just say we always kept the curtains closed just in case.

The room was simply if not tastefully decorated in golds and greens and whites, and the hotel itself is eye-catching with wood and gold on the inside and its large fountain in the courtyard. It even has a pool and jacuzzi. All the makings of a great hotel, but just lacking in something. Good maid service, maybe, or maybe it was helpful and courteous front desk personnel. The experience wasn't bad, and for as little as your paying a night, you shouldn't expect much more.

This hotel's saving grace it that it's not actually on Bourbon, but still close. After a night of trampsing down around the French Quarter and drinking my brain's weight in liquor, it was nice to not have to travel too far but have some peace and quiet. Optimal location, really, and if you're planning to spend a lot of time downtown and don't need the lavish of the Hotel Montelone, then I recommend it. Just don't expect the optimal high brow experience. Think of it as your city's local Hilton, good but not nearly as spectacular as they used to be.

This Maison is also popular wedding location, both for pre-chapel photography and early morning services. A grand total of 2 full wedding parties were staying there whilst we were, and 4 weddings took place. Beware, bridezillas galore.

Food:
We didn't try and room service, but there are two restaurants in the hotel: the French Quarter Bistro (see my next review) and the Le Meritage. Supposedly, Le Meritage has some great upscale dinning, but that's not what we went to Nawlins for, save for Commander's, so we passed.

The rooms are adequate - a bit shabby.  The staff is very spotty - some helpful, some way on the other end, like they're being put out to help a guest.  There is construction going on that makes it impossible to relax in your room (I'm on my second room now).  It's intermittent buzzsaw drilling - really loud and enervating.  Followed by bouts of hammering.  This is definitely not worth the money.

Grabbed a pair of nights here for the very nice price of $90. For this price, the hotel is fantastic.

Located two blocks from the middle of Bourbon Street, this hotel is a 4-10 minute walk from the best restaurants and bars that the French Quarter has to offer. Did not drive anywhere after checking in.

The room is nice, the king size bed one of the nicest I have ever slept in. I would recommend getting a room with a balcony  on the courtyard side if possible. However, I have no idea as to the price discrepancy.

The lobby and the courtyard are beautiful, a hot tub and heated pool with a splendid fountain in the center. Didn't try either of the lobby restaurants, too much local faire easily available.

Overall, if you can get a decent price, this is an excellent hotel. Nice staff, simple rooms, but great location and courtyard make this a solid choice for any jaunt into the French Quarter of NOLA.

Greeted by a friendly doorman every time: check

Allowed to check-in a few hours early w/no hassel: check

Location: check.
It is the absolute perfect distance both away and close to Bourbon St.

Hotel Bar: check
Extra stars for the staff for introducing me to Abita beer, the local brew- make sure to guzzle that when you head down there

Hotel bed: ummm big fat check
Every time I sat on this bed I passed out. Seriously. I wish I could buy the whole bed and bedding from the hotel. You will not have a bad night's sleep at the Maison I promise!

This is a decent property. Plus side - very comfy bed, great front desk staff, prompt housekeeping.  Minus side - blow dryer was in bad shape and ultimately broke down, only one mirror in whole room (in steamy bathroom), base boards were peeling away from wall.  But we got a good deal and our view was so nice of pretty inner courtyard - I would request this view over louder street view. Overall it was ok.

No heat unless the entire hotel reaches a certain temp. With a few basic changes this could be an excellent place to stay.

Location: 4 stars, excellent location, quiet and just outside the loud zone
Rooms: 1 star - no heat! The staff informed me that the heat only works if the entire hotel reaches a certain temperature. So we are here in January, it is 56 degrees out and our heat blows ice cold air. Called the front desk and they said ' you are advised to just leave the heat off unless it gets colder because the central heat does not turn on and therefore your room heat does no good'  
Staff: 2 stars, very nice but not particularly good. When we tried to check in they had lost our reservation. This was rectified in about 20 minutes but just inconvenient. Two nights in a row they took all of our towels, cups and coffee and didn't replace them. We called and got all replaced, but just a basic issue.
Restaurant: 4 stars, excellent food and excellent service

We went here for pre-dinner drinks, which were okay but not great and pricey.  To be fair though, our bartender said it was her first day so I'll cut her some slack.  A ton of stars for their piano player Paul, he is awesome.

Absolutely one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in...and I have stayed in some of the best hotels all over the United States. The Maison DuPuy has a nostalgic charm and is located directly within the French Quarter. Although I enjoyed the beauty of the hotel, I was mostly impressed with the staff. The entire staff was unbelievably accommodating, charming, and pleasant but the concierge Sarah was invaluable! Sarah knew us by name and was honest about what tours and restaurants she thought were best for us. Throughout our trip Sarah made several reservations for us and set-up several tours for us. She truly made our trip easy and a joy! Other wonderful pleasures about the Maison DuPuy was the excellent sound proofing in the rooms, very comfortable beds, and delightful restaurant located directly within the hotel. I truly will never be staying anywhere else in New Orleans! Thank you Maison DuPuy!!!!!

Was a nice hotel but the jacuzzi wasn't working and wasn't going to be anytime soon according to the front desk. If a place puts it on their website, they should have it. Just sayin'. Otherwise it's a great location and a comfy bed. Had a problem with the shower and they had someone fix it right away.
Beautiful courtyard and pool but they rent it out for private functions so we didn't get to enjoy it. They should also let you know this before you book. But their pricing is very competetive maybe for that reason.

The good:  very comfortable beds, great location within walking distance of Bourbon Street, front desk staff pleasant and helpful.

The bad:  in room hair dryer pretty much useless, housekeeping would benefit from some additional training, air vents were so packed with dust and cobwebs, made us wonder if the air was even safe to breathe.  Vacuum cleaning in room looked minimal and outside hallway, probably not at all.  No in room coffee pots which is pretty standard anywhere else.

The ugly:  bathroom faucet handle came off in my hand, luckily it screwed back on but whole faucet base was loose and wiggled around.  Toilet seat also slid around, an accident just waiting to happen.

We would check out other hotel alternatives if vacationing in the area again.  Since this was our first visit to New Orleans, not sure how the Maison Du Puy compares to others in the French Quarter.

Booked for a long weekend with an average rate of $100, GREAT price for location. Our room was facing the street with balcony which was fine, sure if it was busier time of the year would have been too noisy.

The bed was super huge and about 10 times more comfortable than mine at home which is a lot to say.  The room was clean and sufficient.

Didn't take advantage of the heated hot tub and pool, was tempted but didn't.  We ended up needing to get on the computer so found the business center.  The work out room looked nice, nope did not use it.  Didn't go to restaurant either with questionable reviews.  If you ask for a coffeemaker they will bring one but then they don't take glasses or re-stock for next day.

Loved being able to walk everywhere, this location was awesome right in the French Quarter.

I would give this place 5 stars for the courtyard and lobby --- very very cute from that perspective. However ---- the rooms are simply not clean. They need to update their sheets and bathtubs. The location was good and the staff was very helpful.

What a dissapointing hotel. I've never written a Yelp review before, but was compelled to do so after this stay.

I had only one night to stay in New Orleans, and my only requirements were an older hotel and one with a bath so I could relax. After paying a large sum for one night, I arrived to my "room with a view". No view, other than the otherside of a large plant. Old carpeting, and a bed with someone else's hair in it immediatly turned me off.

When I went to turn on the tap in the tub, I found a decent amount of mold in the water that began to fill the tub. Gross. I didn't even get in the water, and was so dissapointed. I took a washcloth and collected some of the larger peices of mold to show to the front desk. Not at all how I planned to spend my vacation.

Brought it down the following morning, the front desk apologized (was very helpful/polite) , took the washcloth, and left my number with the manager. He never called. I waited a few days, and left a message. Still no call. Called again, and finally was called back. He would only refund the $30 I spent on parking, said I would need to contact Expedia for a refund, and was completely unhelpful.

When I called expedia to have them try to get me a refund, he refused the refund to them as well. He said I "didn't bring it to anyone's attention" at the hotel, and said that "no one else had this problem" so that there was nothing he could do. Ridiculous.

In short, it was a dirty room, a dirty tub, and an unhelpful manager. I am so upset I wasted my money.

Wonderful place to stay . Clean, friendly people and beautiful . The lobby was decorated for Christmas and felt so warm and homey. I can't wait to go back . Only a 2 block walk to Bourbon street . Breakfast in the bistro was lovely and our server was very nice to us . The beds are wonderful and comfortable. The TV is modern with lots of channel options . Great place to stay !

Let me start by saying I never stayed there.  I made a reservation directly through their web site at least a month in advance.  They called me the day of our reservation while we were on our flight to let us know that we would be switched to another hotel.  I called them back and they said due to maintenance issues, we had been switched.  Fine, I said, to where?  They told me Omni Royal Orleans and that I didn't need to call because they already knew I was coming.  I got the phone number anyway and called them to be sure since my friend would be checking in before me.  They had no information on us being transferred there and no reservation.  I called Maison Dupuy back.  No, you have been transferred to the Bourbon Orleans.  Would they give us the same rate, I asked.  Of course, they said.  Before I had the chance to call them, my friend was there trying to check in.  No, they had no information on our transfer and had not heard a thing from Mainson Dupuy.  Thankfully, they did have a room available and we were able to book that, for a higher price I might add.

I find it hard to believe that they couldn't figure out that we would need to be transferred to another hotel until the day of our arrival when I booked a month in advance directly through their web site.  Then, I feel like we were down right lied to about whether or not they had actually done anything about it.  

The second place we stayed in New Orleans was at the Omni Royal Crescent and it was smooth as can be.  Do yourself a favor and don't book with Maison Dupuy.

My friends and I stayed in Maison Dupuy for a girls weekend we had 7/29/11-7/31/11. The hotel is in a "Great Location" an easy 5min walk will have u in the heart of bourbon st. "The staff was very helpful and friendly" our sink was clogged when we got there and they sent someone to come fix it within 30min. Im not a big fan of community pools/jacuzzis but the "Pool area was exceptionally clean and the water was sparkling" so I had to jump in. The "free wifi" had perfect service and was a great amenity

I was not a fan of the "cramped elevators" and our streetside balcony view room was a lot smaller than expected and had a horrible view.

The pros out way the cons and I would more than likely stay again when I come back to New Orleans.

My husband and I stayed at the Maison Dupuy for the 2 nights leading up to Mardi Gras day (and the night of Mardi Gras) of this year.  It was my husband's first Mardi Gras and i was excited for him to experience it.  I considered giving them 2 stars, but the young women that worked the breakfast buffet earned them an extra star.  First checking in.  It went smoothly enough and the front desk staff were nice enough.  The valet took good care of our car.  Our room was nice and was clean and we had a view of the courtyard.  The room was clean, but the window was not.  It was filthy, so the view wasn't as nice as it could have been.  The beds were very comfortable and we slept very well while there.  The location is great, as it's close enough to Bourbon street to walk, but you don't get all the noise and crowds.  On the first day, we got quite warm walking around and I wanted a cold Coke.  Not much to ask for, I don't think.  Well, there are no soda vending machines anywhere on the property and you can't get one from the staff, either.  When I asked if there was some way to get a cold Coke, I got a surly response "Go to the store 2 blocks up".  Which I did.  When I asked for a Coke, the staff seemed very put out.  Sorry....I didn't realize getting a Coke was so incredibly difficult and asking for the moon.  One helpful employee did try to get us a Coke from the employee only lounge, but it ate our money.  But I was so grateful that he tried.  After day 2, our key card quit working.  They had mistakenly locked us out, thinking we'd only paid for 2 nights, when we'd paid for 3.  It was remedied quickly, but still irritating.  The breakfast buffet was very good (quite pricey and not included with your stay).  Like I said before, the young ladies working the buffet were wonderful.  They always had a smile and knew how to treat the guests.  On our last day there, they even gave me one of their golden coconuts from the Zulu parade.  I was thrilled, since I tried so hard to get one when at the parade but with no luck.  That made my day!  Here's the review boiled down:

Pros:  Location, Comfy beds, quiet, lovely courtyard, valet parking

Cons:  Grumpy staff (except the ladies at the breakfast buffet and 1 or 2 others) with lack of basic customer service skills, no mini fridge

We might stay here again if we could be sure the ENTIRE staff would be welcoming.  And for over $400 a night (Mardi Gras prices), we should have gotten at least that.

We stayed here pre-Katrina, so this review is based on that.

I absolutely adored this place. Small, intimate, beautiful hotel in short walking distance from anywhere in the Quarter. The beds were the most comfortable beds I've had in a hotel in... well... just about ever. Only the draw of off tourist season Quarter pulled us from them!

Staff was helpful and friendly!

This was my first time staying in a hotel in the quarter, so going in I didn't really have any expectations other than the building is likely to be old and weird. Which was the case with Cupboard style bathroom doors, old water pipes leaving my hair smelling like the pirates of the caribbean and tiny rickety elevators.

You aren't gonna stay here for luxurious, sparkling accommodations.

What you will stay here for are;  Black out curtains, Cleaning service that knows to leave you alone until *at least* 1 PM, Central location to most everything and friendly desk service.

Good location.

Sub-par cleaning, my bathroom sink had shaving scum in it, and when my eyes wondered below counter level it was obvious no one had ever wiped the walls down - GROSS!

The food was decent, had catering at a wedding (great spread and venue) and the breakfast buffet.

I was there specifically for the wedding.  If/wehn I go back to N.O. i doubt seriously that i'd consider staying again - dirty.

OK is all I can give this hotel.  It was clean which should be a given but failed miserably in the customer service department.  Bad at check in and check out, OK at Breakfast and horrible bell service.  There was always a line to get cars and was never someone around that would help with taxis.

This hotel has a lot of contradictions.  Overall a fine experience.  When we arrived we valet parked and where asked if we were in for the day.  I told the valet truthfully I wasn't sure.  He rolled his eyes and took the car.  I get that this helps them park the car, but I wasn't sure.  Then when we called down for a our car they said they would bring it around.  When we go down there, then they went to get our car which took 5 - 10 minutes.  The room was nice.  There was free wifi and plenty of tv channels.  My co-worker got upgraded to a suite.  Lucky her.  I had a standard room overlooking the pool which was fine.  I heard no noise from outside, but plenty from the hall.  As this is New Orleans, even during the week people are coming back late and loudly from drinking.  The location is pretty good, but right on the cusp of the wrong side of Rampart.  The live musician in the hotel bar is pretty good and so are the drinks.  All in for the price the hotel is fine, but there are a lot of hotels in New Orleans that offer a little better value for your money.

Well, my mother always said "all good things must come to an end".  Now, so does our love of the Maison Dupuy.  
We would stay at the Maison Dupuy whenever we we're traveling to New Orleans.  We didn't shop around for location or price.  We thought that Maison Dupuy was located perfectly, and that that rates were fair, and that we were provided with good value.
Unfortunately, during our last stay (3/26/12-3/29/12), and during maintenance at the hotel, my car that was valet parked fell victim to the drips and splatters of the products used by maintainers.  I'm greatly saddened that the Maison Dupuy didn't take better care of my vehicle!  They've refunded me my parking fees, but I'm headed to the auto dealership's service center to seek professional assistance in removing the foreign substance.  The hotel suggested "Lime Away", but that product's label warns against use on painted surfaces.
I've always loved the Maison Dupuy, but it's time to move on I'd say.  Next time we're in New Orleans, we'll likely look elsewhere for accomodations....for us and the car.

I went to New Orleans with three of my friends, for a fun girls weekend, and we stayed here.  The rooms were clean and the staff was nice, but the hotel needs updating in the rooms/hallways on the real.  Also, it felt so HUMID in our room.  Like the AC wasn't working right or something.  I hate that feeling of everything being damp.  Anyway, we were lucky enough to have a room with a balcony that overlooked the gorgeous courtyard and pool.  That was nice and you can't beat the location!  A few feet and you're on bourbon, an easy walk to Frenchman street, Jackson square, Harrahs...etc etc.  If they updated it, this place would be sweet!

Overall a very good experience.  Room was great although the view consisted of a concrete wall.  And you are only a few blocks from Bourbon Street and the rest of the quarter.

So the location is good and the room was spacious enough and clean.  The shower even had good pressure (always a plus).  And they even have a military rate for the rooms, which made this a very affordable stay.

The downside:  Do not do the breakfast buffet downstairs.  Total rip off.  $16 per person for overcooked bacon and overcooked scrambled eggs.  Another hit is the carpet in the hallways on the fourth floor has what can only be described as the occasional vomit stain on it.  Too much revelry I guess.  A bit of a gross out.

Rooms are dated, I heard they are doing a reno this summer. Bathroom door was hard to close when you were in the bathroom, which was fine because it was just my husband and me but something to be aware of. It stormed one night and our carpet was SOAKED the next morning, it's an old building so it didn't bother me but then I think there may have been mold because my allergies started flaring up! Skip breakfast in the hotel restaurant. Our waitress implied it was buffet only (which I dislike) but we didn't have a choice due to schedule, then we noticed others ordering from the menu! To top it off she never refilled my water or took our dirty plates. Just poor service for the price! The housekeeping staff was also inconsiderate and very loud in the hallways quite early in the mornings (8am). I understand they have a job to do but could do without the loud conversations in the hall that early. Overall, good location but I feel a little overpriced for what they offer. Do not count on their WiFI either, it is so slow and freezes up just checking email!

Per Janet H.'s review and the owner's response: we did reach out to management. Specifically, I called the front desk about the wireless outage for the second time and, when the answer was, "it's a courtesy sir," I immediately asked to speak to a manager because that is an unsatisfactory response. Unfortunately we were told management would not be available to speak until a certain hour very early on a Sunday morning, something like, "would 7 AM be ok?" We needed internet connection, so I said, "sure! as soon as a manager is available I'd very much like to speak with him or her." I was then told management would call. No one ever did call.

And, frankly, when you're dealing not only with the death of a friend but also helping his family deal with numerous aspects surrounding his death, including finalizing arrangements for the funeral, like making sure the band is paid, you're not exactly keeping "discussions with hotel management" high on your list.

So I do not appreciate at all such a backhanded suggestion by the owner. You not only disrespect my wife with your response and not only your your "valued" late employee but you disrespect everyone who ever pays to stay in any hotel anywhere.

This could be a great hotel with a couple of tweaks. The first one would be with hospitality management. That would mean someone running the organization who understands both hospitality and management. You can't even manage to write a hospitable response on Yelp.

First of all, the positives. Great location just far enough from Bourbon Street to avoid the noise and the beer stink, but easy walk to all the action. Also, the bed was incredibly comfortable. The housekeeping staff, the valet and bell staff were very friendly and helpful.

Now the reasons why I would not return to Maison Dupuy. The front desk staff was terribly rude and looked like they all lived in a constant state of either constipation or pain. If that is the case, I am truly sorry and they should seek medical attention for that. If not, take a class in smiling and learn to employ some good old fashioned southern hospitality. On the whole, New Orleans is one if the friendliest cities I have ever visited. Unfortunately it doesn't extend to the desk staff. Considering we were in town for the Second Line of one of their employees that just passed away, you would think they would have had a little more courtesy, but it was seriously lacking.

Secondly, the Wifi was down the whole time we were there. We don't stay in places without Wifi due to the nature of my husbands job. The fact that there was no Internet access was a grave inconvenience for us. When questioned repeatedly, the front desk staff stated "it's a courtesy only". We consider it a necessity. If we had wanted just a bed and a shower we would have paid a lot less and stayed elsewhere.

There was an old, non-operational minibar in our room.  It was locked and evidently did not work to keep things refrigerated. When I called to inquire for a refrigerator, I was told housekeeping would bring one right up. 36 hours later after numerous phone calls, our fridge arrived, plus a coffee maker at the initiative of housekeeping.  Both of these amenities are commonly found in a middle-of- the- road chain hotel.

As nice as this hotel appears, working wifi, a refrigerator/mini bar, and coffee service should really be standard fare, not things you have to ask for, let alone beg, plead and threaten to get.

So if you want a great location, great bed, and don't mind surly service, and a lacking of expected amenities, this might be the place for you. Otherwise, keep looking.

We have stayed at Maison Dupuy on our last 2 trips to NOLA. The staff is friendly. We will be travelling to NOLA once per month for the next year and will probably stay at Maison Dupuy. They have been kind enough to cover our parking cost for us so far and I'll be calling to see if we can get a better rate since we'll be there so often. It is just off N. Rampart, so be careful when walking at night, and don't go any further toward Rampart after dark.

Overall, there are better choices, including some of the chains, as long as you avoid Bourbon Street unless it's a conscious decision.

Hubby and I are locals and stayed here for French Quarter Fest in 2004...we were disappointed. Well we decided to try it again this year 2013, because the location of this hotel is perfect. (Hotels on Bourbon St. can make for sleepless nights with the noise) We are so glad we did. This boutique hotel is on the uptick. It was clean, the linens high quality and the staff was excellent. We were pleasantly surprised and will be back. For the money...this hotel is a steal.

Comfy beds. Friendly staff. Courtyard is beautiful.

Was a little taken aback when I realized that they charge for coffee in the room. The first two servings per day are free and then you have to buy extra for $1 each. Sort of petty, but hey, it's only a dollar right?

The concierge lady (blonde) recommended the best restaurants so if you need and recommendations see her!

My friend had her 30th birthday in New Orleans and wanted to stay in a historic hotel that was near the quarter that also had a pool- that was affordable. I wasn't sure we would be able to find "that" kind of place, but Maison Dupuy was everything we wanted and more. It was in a fantastic location at Tolouse & Burgundy, making it walking distance to everywhere in the quarter.  We valet'd our car w/ them for the weekend and didn't need it back until we went home.

The service was excellent here and everyone was really nice. The rooms were not huge but they were plenty big and nicely decorated and the bed was really comfortable.

The pool was beautiful and was a nice little escape for the craziness of the Quarter for the afternoon.

I would absolutely stay here again next time I came to New Orleans.

I recently stayed at the Maison Dupuy Hotel, and was very pleased with the service and accommodations that were provided for our 4 day/3 night stay.  Our early check in was no issue at all, and we were quickly provided a room upon our arrival, which was fantastic after and early morning flight.

The room was clean, very nice and well made, with a limited but nice view of the inner courtyard.  While I would I have liked a Balcony or Street side view, I believe those were for single beds and suites, of which I was neither (2 bed room requested).  Room service wasn't banging on the door at 8am, which was a nice change from most hotel stays.  Typically, as we were leaving to start our day (around 10am) they were in the hall way of our room and would make sure we needed it cleaned as we left.

The complaint I would have, really doesn't overly reflect on the hotel to much, even though it still does (LOL).  But it would be (1) The Small Beds.  I realized at the time I reserved 2 doubles (only available) which were at a great price.  And for 4 of us in a room (2 couples) it was nice to be close to the downtown area without spending a ton per person.  However, it does become a little cozy once the drink induced coma begins.  (2) The fridge/wet bar, or lack thereof actually.  As we flipped through the little welcome book, we noticed a lot of pages referring to an in room bar (wet bar) which mainly caught our attention because we wanted a fridge for all the left over treats from the local restaurants and candy/praline stores.  Our investigation led us to a blank spot, with obvious stains from a large object, just under the TV in the cabinet space.

While neither of these were a huge upset, it was something that kinda "plagued" us throughout our stay.

The food served from the Bistreaux, was very good, especially their Apple Pie and Banana Bread Pudding.  They also provided room service to the hotel, which was a great bonus!

Like a lot of people have already said, the location is great!  You're not so far into the French Quarter that you have a hard time getting to and from the Hotel, or an abundance of noise that keeps you awake at all hour of the night.  But even with that, you're still a very quick walk away from the night life on Bourbon, the great many eateries, and shopping locations spread throughout the quarter.  

Not to mention, easy access as far as location for driving yourself, or getting to and fro with public transportation.  

If you're looking for a very nice stay at a more than reasonable cost, I'd highly recommend this location.

Stayed here February 14 through the 18, 2013.
Was very worried as I am extremely picky about hotels.
The staff was fantastic!
We stayed our first night in a balcony king delux, the room was clean and recently renovated. The balcony to the courtyard was perfect.
This room was a little small for us since we were spending a couple of days here we asked for a larger room.  They moved us to a Jr. Suite with a balcony. Definately worth the upgrade!  Larger room with a fridge and couch for just sitting in the room.
Other positives:
Beds are wonderful
Soft music in the courtyard, great for coffee in the AM or cocktails in the PM on your balcony.
Try to get you balcony in the courtyard vs the street view.
Great staff
2 blocks to bourbon street
Free in room wifi!!!
Negatives:
We took a cab from the airport but have heard valet is expensive
Breakfast buffet was $18!  We had 2 free so we ate here one day.
That was enough for me with places like court of 2 sisters and Brennan's why done at a hotel buffet!
My overall review is 5 stars!!!!

Beautiful courtyard and pool, wonderful environment that feels like NOLA. Staff were mixed, very pleasant front desk but housekeeping that were terse and mixed breakfast buffet folks. Definitely enjoyed the french quarter experience, great walking--very easy to hear others, not a good hotel for romance. Beds okay, not super comfy but adequate. Room clean, spacious--but bathrooms strangely small. Would stay here again.

Courtyard is gorgeous. Hotel is convenient to everything French Quarter. The room fixtures show their age - not in an antique sort of way but still a great property.

Their one failing is their staff (other than the room service delivery woman who was wonderful). Train your breakfast staff to say "good morning", train your bellman to open doors and to offer help with bags. I tip ridiculously well but most of the staff in this hotel won't know it because they never tried to offer service or even a smile. Spend some time with your team, show them what to do or hire a trainer to do it for you.

We came to New Orleans to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary and I'm so glad my friend recommended the Maison Dupuy!

The registration process was easy (I did research online, then called Pat in the reservation department and she was very helpful, answering all my questions and making my reservation).

Check-in was easy and the room was fine. Not huge, not brand new, but totally fine - clean and the temperature control worked. Nice view of the courtyard (though the windows didn't open).

Three things I loved about the hotel:

(1) The beds! We have a Tempurpedic bed at home and my biggest complaint is that I have trouble when we sleep almost anywhere else. (Well, I don't know how much could be chalked up to how much we had to drink every night, but I slept like a log!)

(2) Fahy's across the street - best Irish pub we've encountered since Galway! (Check out the review I posted.)

(3) Le Meritage - we had our anniversary dinner there and it was amazing. Charlotte took great care of us and Diego was charming and generous! It was the best meal we had in New Orleans (and that's really saying something)!

The location is really fabulous. You can really walk pretty much anywhere in the French Quarter. We walked everywhere, from the French Market to the Canal Street ferry to the Garden District. Then, when you get tired, you can always take a streetcar.

The staff at the front desk was always friendly and pleasant, whether it was recommending a restaurant or dispensing band-aids.

Definitely consider the Maison Dupuy if you're going to be in the French Quarter.

We reserved four rooms and the Carriage House for the weekend. The staff were very friendly and accommodating with all of our requests and changes to reservations prior to our arrival and through the whole weekend. The carriage house was perfect for two couples and made a great meeting spot for those staying in rooms in the hotel proper. The location is exactly what we wanted in that it was close enough but not too close to Bourbon. We will definitely be back!

Location is OK, two blks from Bourbon street, and the hotel is very quiet, we had an inside courtyard room.  The hotel is a little tired.  If you are 6' or over, the bathrooms will drive you nuts!  As the bathroom ceiling is only about 6' 6" tall, and the shower will hit you at the belt line or below, almost impossible to wash your hair.  No comfort height toilets, and the sink counter tops are very low.  Beds are not bad, but not luxurious either, just OK.  The restaurant was a disappointment, as we had to have a breakfast bill, changed 3 times, because of over charging us.  Pancakes came with hard butter, and equally cold syrup, while the coffee was luke warm.  Additionally, everyone seems to have a bit of an attitude problem, and you are made to feel more like a "tenant" than a guest.  If you can't find any other place, this one is OK.

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Maison Dupuy twice and I think it's gonna be my go-to New Orleans hotel. It is located just a few blocks from The French Quarter and the prices are always reasonable, especially when you get a package deal, like we did!

My second stay was MUCH better than the first one. Customer service had improved greatly (even with my comment below about the medicine hassle) and the elevators were working efficiently again.

The courtyard, pool and hot tub areas are beautiful! Nice gym.

The rooms are small, but very nice. The beds are super comfortable.

My only complaint is that, when I got food poisoning and needed some Pepto Bismol and Advil, they refused to bring it up to my room. I expect better service than that at a hotel of this caliber. So I had to drag myself downstairs to buy some and later found out that it was nearly $8 for two little packets of medicine. $8 for 4 pills? Seriously?
The gatorade was only $2, though, so I'm not sure why the medicine price was so inflated.

Also, the hallways are always freezing for some reason.

They DID reheat some leftovers for me, though. Very begrudgingly, though, I might add. :/

The restaurant was nice, too. Live music day and night. But I suppose I will review that separately.

Gorgeous patio for a wedding but the breakfast is way too spendy for the quality. The breakfast is one step above a continental. It's a buffet with maybe 6 hot selections. Price: 23 clams. REDONKULOUS!!!!!! Then they charge you an extra 3 bones for coffee. Go almost anywhere else in even just a one block radius for a cheaper better breakfast. I was almost angry when I got the bill for this.

Now the hotel itself is b-e-a-utiful. The rooms are simple yet elegant. beds are comfy. Pool area is nice. Courtyard is gorge! Especially at night. The wedding I was there for was great. The buffet spread was sooooooooo good. If only the breakfast was the same. Other than the breakfast the hotel is fantabulous. The breakfast was just so redonky that the hotel gets a 3 *** rating for allowing the montstrosity to continue.

Starting on a positive note: the location is great.
Now the negatives:
1. Not updated.
2. One garbage can in room(doesn't seem like a big deal-until u blow your nose in bathroom and have no where to toss it)
3. Shower head was awful(worst I have ever used- sprayed water all over the place-asked to have fixed and was blown off)
4. Don't bring a car, it's very expensive to park if you do.
5. Room rates are high for what you get.
6. Would not recommend to family or friends.
7. Concierge was nice, but most of the information provided was wrong.

We enjoyed the Maison Dupuy for its quiet location, its super-comfy beds, and its nice, warm central heating.  As Chicagoans visiting during a New Orleans cold snap (highs in the 30s each day), we were surprised how few of the places we visited were adequately heated. By the end of the day (and sometimes the middle) we needed a place just to thaw out.

Located just a block from Rampart Street, you might want to keep your wits about you when you return home at night, but we were always home by 10:00 so no worries.

For some reason I found it hilarious to refer to our little bathroom as "the Maison du Pee."

The hotel was nice and exactly as expected.  Good location.   Rooms are very clean and well appointed.   Sara at the front desk was great.     Was a bit frustrated on check out.  When I ask about an extended check out (all I ask for was 2 hours), the clerk told me it would be half of a daily rate and there was nothing she could do.   When I commented that they didn't bother to make amends when THE HOTEL delayed our check in of more then 3 hours.... She says, well that's the way it is.  Then when I got my receipt they tried to charge me for 4 nights of parking.... I didn't have a car here - - How can you charge for parking... then she questioned me about my 'car'.

Had the front desk been a lil more courteous I would have rated higher.

We wanted the true French quarter experience and we got it.  This historic and elegant hotel was quiet and relaxing yet 2 blocks from all the action of Bourbon Street.  The staff was wonderful and the hotel pool is beautiful.  The beds were super comfy.  This hotel is classic which means it has personality, unlike the modern hotels, and that also means it has some flaws. But to us those flaws just made it more endearing.  For instance, the bathroom is a bit dated, but everything worked. You may want to ask for a new shower curtain...the ones they use are fabric and mold easy. Be sure to check yours. I would certainly stay there again as it has such charm and character.

My boyfriend and I came down to New Orleans for my birthday. Just a quick trip to drink, party and have a good time. I ended up using AAA to find a nice hotel close to Burbon street, so we didn't need to walk very far to get around.

The Maison is quite nice on the inside. The lobby is very well done, the staff is nice and quick and everything was taken care of for us. It's what you'd expect from the four star hotel experience. It's also very close to burbon street, but far way enough to it's not loud at all.

Sadly the rooms didn't match up to par. I understand it's hard to have a larger room in a major city hotel (I've experienced this a lot in NYC) but if I'm paying 350$ a night, I expect to at least get a room bigger than my own at home. The bathroom was very nice, but SMALL, two people will have trouble being in there.

The prices for parking there are steep. 30 bucks a night. But good luck finding safe parking on the street.

The beds were soft and large, but the room needed some work done. A quick paint job and some new pictures would fix it up.

We also had a "street view" that was just a window that looked out onto a radiator outside. We didn't really care, we just thought it was funny.

The most annoying part of the hotel, and the major reason I give it three stars was the noise from inside the hotel. They were doing work on other rooms. At 9 in the morning. On a weekend. We were awoken by hammers and saws from down the hall, as they were fixing other rooms up. Look, I know it's 9 am, and all the grandmas and people with kids are awake, but for those of us party animals who have been out until 3 am, 9 am is a personal hell. Please start working around 12 or so. Or on a weekday. Not Saturday morning. Not even Sunday morning.

I would stay here again, because it was reasonable for the price and location, but I was expecting a little more from a hotel that touted itself as one of  the best hotels in New Orleans.

We stayed here last week for a night.  Nice hotel, great little pool, and friendly staff.  Very close to everything.  I don't recommend getting an outside balcony room that faces the street unless you want to be woken up by random construction.  Thankfully that was my alarm to getting up so I wasn't too bummed, but if you're nursing a hangover like my husband was, I'd ask for an inside room ;-P

Excellent Hotel!!!
I loved this hotel because it was clean, the staff was friendly, and the location is great.  It is walking distance to bourbon street, frenchmen street, etc. Yet when you are done partying and being out it is a lovely hotel to relax in as it is very calm and serene.  The only thing I would change is that I would add more beach chairs around the pool area as they were often taken and there was no where to sit especially during prime pool time, but other than that I would highly recommend this hotel.

Nice and cozy and not too ritzy! However, the cleaning staff I do not think is doing what they are supposed to do. We left our room and came back that night to the bed made and new towels but the glass my friend used was still dirty and sitting on the end table and we were not given a new bag for ice. Also check out on Sunday was a complete disaster. We arrived downstairs to a lobby full of people and had to wait in line for quite some time in order to check out. We also then found out that it cost $40 a night to have the car parked there. To make the check out and leaving experience worse, the valet's obviously had no clue what they were doing. We walked outside to be greeted by about 20 other people waiting for their vehicles and someone began yelling at a valet because they were assisting other people who just walked out instead of the ones who were waiting for a while. We stood there for about 20 minutes until our car was pulled up. I have stayed places many times and have never had an experience like this.

I stayed for 3 nights. There was nothing terrible about my stay at the Maison Dupoy, but nothing fabulous either. I probably would stay elsewhere next time.

The Good:
- Convenient location in the French Quarter.
- Comfortable beds.
- Most people working at the hotel were very friendly.
- Clean room.
- Mostly quiet rooms although when people we yelling in the hall you could easily hear it.
- You can check your bags for free before or after check in/out.
- Free wi-fi

The Bad:
- They wouldn't check us in to our room until after 4pm even though other guests were being allowed in.
- Towels kept disappearing and were never replaced. I don't understand why we couldn't have another wash cloth. Or why we never received more soap.
- You know how at nice hotels they surround the comforter in white sheets like a duvet cover? At this place, the only surround the bottom of the comforter and  that kind of grossed me out because the comforter was all pilled. There also wasn't another top sheet on the bed which would have been nice, because the comforter was pretty warm and heavy.
- Lumpy pillows.
-- Rooms are older and it shows. We had a chair in our room that should be reupholstered it was covered in stains.
- No mini fridge in the room. With all that good food in NOLA it would have been nice to store some leftovers.

Good thing about this hotel is the location. Your a 3 minute walk to Bourbon St. and about a 10-12 minute walk to Jackson Square  & the River boat. Nice and quite. Clean room & very comfortable bed. Very friendly staff & valet parking. But you do have to pay 35$ a night which i find crazy.  Loved the pool area! Easy to find some shade at all times of the day. My room was right by the fountain so at night i open my balcony door and listen to the water which was very peaceful.  
I upgraded my room to the deluxe with the balcony. There was absolutely nothing deluxe about this room! No mini fridge. And the bathroom was so small that it was impossible for 2 people to be in there at the same time. Unless you just have to have  a balcony then I advise you to save those few bucks. I shared a balcony with 2 other rooms which i wasn't at all thrilled about!  Can't comment on the food, I did all my eating while i was out.
I did like the hotel and i will stay there again. Next time I'll just get a regular room and try to find some on street parking.

I expected a little more from our room. For $250 a night, I thought the rooms would look a little nicer. The hotel lobby and grounds are beautiful! Valets and porters were very professional.

The perfect place to stay for our whirlwind trip to New Orleans. The hotel is lovely. Our room was modestly sized but pristine. The staff was polite and accommodating. We arrived early and although our room wasn't ready, we were able to store our luggage while we wandered the French Quarter a bit. The best part, they called us when our room was ready!!  It's the perfect spot for exploring the French Quarter. Within walking distance to all the key spots. Also close to Louis Armstrong Park and St. Louis cemetery. When we come here again, and we will come here again, we will visit Maison Dupuy.

If you or someone you know will be staying at Maison Dupuy, do not consider sending flowers (or any other gift) there.  I am a florist in New Orleans who sent an arrangement to a guest there on behalf of an out-of-town florist's customer.  We had the flowers signed for at the front desk.  The sender eventually learned that the guest did not receive the flowers.  The hotel will take NO responsibility for this (standard procedure between florists and hotels).  We spent an incredible amount of time pursuing this, only to be left holding the bag!  In the future, we will refuse any order going to Maison Dupuy and explain the unfortunate situation there which necessitates such a policy.

We booked a balcony room only to find out it isn't a private balcony. It is completely open to the other balcony rooms that are adjacent, not a divider of any kind. The staff at the front desk made us feel like we were bothering them anytime we talked to them, even at checkin. I have stayed a lot of places and have never seen a front desk lack basic hospitality skills such as this hotel. The front desk guy was a large African American with no warmth or graciousness whatsoever.  The room was very basic, had a weird smell, and stained carpet. The highlight of the hotel is the pool, which was refreshing on humid hot days. If you choose this hotel don't expect much. We were going to stay at the Windsor Court, but decided it would be nice to try a small quaint hotel with a balcony. Next time we are going to the Windsor Court.

The location is great, just far enough from the craziness that you can sleep peacefully  but not so far that you have to contemplate whether or not you want to make the trek at night.  I booked online and had no trouble with checking in, the staff and valet where great. The room was on the same par as other hotels I've stayed at and paid double what I did here, so thumbs up for value on money spent. My one and only issue (why it's 4 stars instead of 5) I had to pay $40 for parking one night in the hotels garage but was informed in the morning that I had to have my car out of the garage by 1pm- which I hadn't been told when I parked there or I wouldn't have paid $40 for less than 24 hours of parking.

Location, location, location.

Just two blocks from Bourbon Street, the Maison Dupuy Hotel is a quiet oasis that feels a world away from the nightlife chaos of New Orleans but is still conveniently located to all the central French Quarter attractions.  It is the perfect site for an authentic New Orleans stay that is close to the action, yet a respite for rest and relaxation too.

With so many options for places to stay in New Orleans, it can be overwhelming to decide where to stay.  For a first-time visitor there is no better option than to plant yourself in the middle of the action near the French Quarter and Maison Dupuy Hotel is genuinely a solid choice.  I always find it more enjoyable to avoid the big box hotels that you can find in any city and embrace the smaller, historical hotels that represent the style and charm of the city you are visiting.  While you might sacrifice some bells and whistles of a five-star chain option, you get so much more character in return.

Maison Dupuy Hotel was created by joining five neighboring townhouses with the interior of these adjoined brick buildings making a scenic courtyard for this boutique hotel.  French doors and wrought iron balconies create a classic French Quarter style.  Located on Toulouse Street in the heart of the city, the hotel is within easy walking distance of most of New Orleans tourist attractions, including the French Market, Frenchman Street, Jackson Square, Royal Street, and the notorious Bourbon Street.

The staff could not have been more friendly to us during our stay, and we were impressed with how quiet our nights were as well.  There are some modest nicks/dings in the room, but nothing out of the ordinary for such a historical location.  I would love to see them upgrade the hairdryer, but please don't change any staff.

All in all, the Maison Dupuy is a lovely boutique hotel that includes an old style courtyard and welcoming ambiance that makes for an authentic New Orleans stay.

Must get a blacony room next time because it would just get hot and steamy in your room. I was here in august and it pretty rained on and off but still it would be great to have a balcony. Far enough to get sleep from bourbon street but close that everything is in walking distance. Parking is expensive so if you can make a deal for paying early like 10% off for paying early if not it's like $40/day. There are a lot of other parking garages that are cheaper but its such a hassle to deal with walking pretty far distance.

Loved our two night stay at this hotel. It is a quick two block walk to Bourbon Street, if that is what strikes your fancy. Close enough to easily walk, but far enough away to get away from the noise. It was a fantastic location from which to walk anywhere in the French Quarter.

Features and impressions:

If you want a quieter room, be sure to get one over the courtyard, which is quite beautiful.

It was handy to have a small refrigerator in the room. Just ask for one when you book the room.

The beds are super, super comfy. Having slept in too many hotels, it was pleasure to get a good night's sleep here.

The rooms are on the small side. If having a large room is important, this may not be the place for you. It is an older building and was not designed the same way a new hotel would be. I find this to be part of its charm and sets it apart from cookie-cutter hotel chains, but wanted to mention it. I've stayed in much smaller hotel rooms in Europe. It really was not even an issue for us.

And...parking, which is incredibly expensive at all New Orleans hotels, is half off here if you have AAA. Since the parking rate is $36/day, the savings was most welcome.

A lot of people here seem to have had a problem with the staff but I have to say that every single hotel employee we dealt with was at the very least polite and friendly and more often so gracious and thoughtful that I felt the need to go back and thank them on my way out.

The hotel was beautiful, incredibly easy to park at and decently located for folks that want to get out of the quarter as well. The staff made the effort to not only engage with and be kind to our big american staffordshire terrier, but went out of their way to remember her name and greet her whenever they saw her. (They have since changed their pet policy and no longer allow dogs, unfortunately)

My only gripe with the place was that the gas lamps over the exterior balconies came with a substantial gas smell that made sitting on the balcony for extended periods or keeping the door open to the outside for long a bit uncomfortable.

And DO NOT overlook Fahy's Irish Pub across the street from the Dupuy as too divey - the owners and regulars were some of the nicest people we had the fortune to meet in NOLA and gave us so many great moments.

We booked the Maison Dupuy for my wedding ceremony and reception.  We were extremely pleased with the hotel, the service and the catering.  Staff is so friendly and the hotel is quaint and unique and really feels like New Orleans, not like just another chain hotel.  The courtyard is beautiful and the room rates for a wedding were great for the French Quarter.  

Regular room rates are similar to other hotels' in the area.  Those unfamiliar with New Orleans often don't realize that most hotel rooms in the French Quarter are smaller in size and often more expensive.  Therefore, comparatively, the Maison Dupuy a good value for what you get.  The location is convenient, two blocks from Bourbon Street so you can walk to the party, but it's not loud and crazy where you are staying.  Kimberly in the sales office was amazing to work with, as were everyone we encountered on staff.

The only con is that it is valet parking only at $30+ a day, so self parking has to be done in a garage a few blocks away for $20+ a day.  Again  this is generally true of all hotels in the French Quarter so it's just a fact for the area not something that is unique to the hotel itself.

Overall I loved the Maison Dupuy and look forward to staying here again.

I found the service to be outstanding. We were upgraded to a mini suite and the room was great. Spacious, and we appreciated the fridge.
Free wifi is always a bonus.
I found the staff to be accommodating and gracious. The concierges and porters were exceptional.
Except for one disgruntled server in the bar area everyone made our experience pleasant and special.
Although the rooms were spacious the building is old...very old. We could hear every voice from every room as they exited the elevator, or their room, as I am certain they could hear ours. Awkward.
I don't necessarily want to be worried about being quiet on vacation, in the Quarter.

The wedding we attended was in a sweet courtyard in the rear of the hotel premises. The band was lovely. The food was traditional. The service was good.
Overall it was a good experience and I would absolutely recommend the hotel to future visitors.

First time staying here and it was pretty good.  We got off to a rocky start with the valet staff lacking in smiles and customer service, but luckily we only had to deal with them once.  The rooms are average on the decor scale, but are comfy and clean. The best two things about this hotel is the walking from everything in the French quarter without being amongst the craziness and their gorgeous pool and courtyard area perfect for drinks and down time.

The hotel is beautiful and in a great location, with in the French Quarter. The court yard and fountain are absolutely beautiful.

The staff was accepting and friendly I'm obviously a transgender women. Everyone used the correct pronouns and were very helpful, I don't always get that experience.

Pros:
- location in the French quarter
- beautiful hotel and court yard
- quiet
- price is great for in the French quarter
- balcony is a nice touch

Cons:

- The sink and vanity are in an awkward spot, this is mostly and issue since there are two women staying here who have to do makeup every day.

In conclusion we enjoyed our stay and the hotel is very nice.

As other reviewers have commented, the location is magical.
They're in the French Quarter, but juuuuuust far enough from the craziness that you can sleep without being disturbed by drunk bros screaming and projectile vomiting on your block.
There's an idyllic courtyard with a pool and fountain, and was the perfect place to chill out in the morning with a cup of coffee and the paper while I waited for my friend to wake up. We went for a late night dip, too, and were joined by a couple other folks, so I think the pool is 24/7.
I've stayed here twice and must admit the staff was much nicer my first trip than the second one. Maybe there was a change in management?
Regardless, this is my go-to spot in NoLa and I really wish they weren't requiring a 3 night minimum for Halloween because we'll only be in town for 2 days.

We stayed late April 2015.  There is construction going on so the normally quaint courtyard and pool had scaffolding on 3 sides. The lobby and restaurant is nice; breakfast was good.  We were a little diappointed in our room tho.  The walls were bare of artwork and there was only one night stand on one side of the bed.  Just expected nicer for the price.

This hotel is located on a quiet street in a convenient location, within walking distance to sites nearby.  The desk staff were not pleasant but curt, especially at check-in. We had to wander around and find everything for ourselves.
Our room was adequate but the bathroom was small and the water pressure was way too high. Housekeeping did a good job, but the towels were very rough for this type of hotel. The AC system was very loud, making it difficult to sleep. The view of the courtyard was lovely, but the pool area was very noisy at times(in March!).  Breakfast in the restaurant was good and the bartender at night was friendly.

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel.  It's quiet, close to all the French quarter fun, and a beautiful hotel.  Bed is very comfortable, staff is friendly and accommodating, and the rooms are smallish (it's the French Quarter) but comfortable and clean.  The in-house bar and restaurant are decorated La Belle Époque style and romantically charming.  The courtyard is beautiful...day or night. The food is just okay, somewhat overpriced, but mood of the restaurant sort of makes up for it.  We paid $122.00 a night and was reasonable for Twelth Night celebrations.

I would and probably will stay here again because I love the mood and decor so much.  Nothing like enjoying a late night cocktail amid gas lamps and Creole cottages as a back drop.

love the fact that this hotel is pretty much close to everything. really has this old historic feeling to it when you walk in. didn't really care too much for the room.  all that we cared about really was the fact that everything was in walking distance. so many restaurants surrounding this hotel so that's the least of your worries when you're staying here. staff were welcoming and friendly and got us our room very quickly. i would stay here again if need be for sure.

The beds are so cozy.  This hotel has such great charm.  The location was perfect.  It was close to everything but far enough from bourbon street to be able to sleep at night.  We will for sure be back to this hotel!

I've stayed here twice now, since I had two different weddings in the span of 10 months in New Orleans, both at the Maison Dupuy (go figure).

For the wedding rate (between $160 and $180), you can't do much better. It has a central location in the French Quarter and is everything that you need in a hotel. The rooms are nice enough. Nothing special but equivalent to say, a Holiday Inn.  I don't think I'd stay here for the full rate if there were similarly priced hotels in the same area.

They do have billing issues so beware. The first time we stayed, there was an extra charge on our bill of around $50 which they did reverse when we pointed out that we had checked out by the time the charge allegedly occurred. The second time we stayed, there was again an extra charge, but they said that it would fall off in a few days, which it did.  Also, there was a brunch at the hotel for wedding guests for which they charged the bride's family 100 people, which wasn't possible since there were only 70 people at the wedding of which only 50 could have possibly made the brunch.  They paid it, but were ultimately refunded when the hotel admitted to mixing up two different wedding parties.

So, the moral of the story is to check your bill. They will make things right in the end, but you do need to point out if something is wrong.

Decent size rooms, excellent customer service, perfect location. excellent price, probably due to the construction but that really didn't affect our stay too much since we are early risers. We are definitely staying here again!

Stayed here during the week after Jazz-Fest for our honeymoon and were pleased with the experience for the most part. The room was cozy and the bed was very comfortable and after long days of walking non-stop, that is a huge plus. Wonderful service from the very friendly bell hops (are they still called bell hops?) and the cleaning crew. Incredibly good location: 2 streets over from Bourbon St, within walking distance to pretty much the entire French Quarter which is where we spent the majority of our time. Louis Armstrong Park is only a block away. Preservation Hall just a few minutes away.
The hotel was undergoing major renovations during our stay which was a bit of an annoyance due to not being able to enjoy the courtyard and pool, and waking up to deafening hammering, drilling, etc. was unpleasant, but we weren't planning on sleeping-in all that much since we wanted to do as much exploring as possible during our trip anyway so we were able to deal with that.
It was also a bummer that there weren't any "smoker's posts" outside of the hotel so we all had to walk across the street to stand in front of private properties just to be able to have a cigarette. I found that odd considering the sheer amount of smokers found throughout the French Quarter.
Aside from a few disappointments (renovations ARE a necessary part of keeping a business going through the years - I get it), I managed to sleep well on a very comfortable bed, location can't be beat, and would consider returning in the future.

When checking in at 11pm at night, I was not greeted or welcomed by the front desk person, but rather bluntly just asked for my name. I really thought after visiting a new city I would receive warmth and welcoming gestures to a city I should grow to love. I had a few questions to ask upon arrival but it seemed like my questions were a burden for the man working so I felt like I had to leave the desk with questions unanswered.

The rooms are small, but I didn't expect much since it is the French Quarter district. The shower curtains had mold spots on them which freaked me out. I also found a hair ball on the floor that definitely is not mine.

House keeping was really on point. Everyday I would arrive back to a clean room with fresh sheets. Although, one time they walked in our room without knocking. She only announced herself when she realized we were actually in the room.

Guest services was not pleasant either. I called to ask a question about regards to my room and her answer was, "No. Thank you, bye." That was rude. She should've maybe asked if there was anything else I wanted to ask.

Lastly, the best service of all was the one man who worked valet, sadly only one night a week. Russel was the sweetest man! Upon arrival he went out of his way to assure us the safety of or belongings, helped us load stuff into a cart, and made us feel so welcomed. He also didn't want us to worry about loading anything or tipping him at the moment because all he wanted was for us to get to bed and rest due to our late arrival.

All in all, this was an affordable hotel close to the major attractions, don't expect too much from this hotel.

DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!
If I could put 0 out of 5 stars I would. This hotel has been the worst mistake for my first trip to NOLA ! My boyfriend wanted us to have a romantic trip at boutique hotel. Instead we got crappy service at the bar. Our room overlooked scaffolding, we were not told of the construction. They never said pool was closed, then another guest said the hotel had made arrangements to use another hotel's pool. They said it would be available when we got here then it wasn't nor bothered to mention the option the pool we could use. The next day we asked about getting another room without scaffolding, they said one we could get one after they were cleaned. Then apparently no rooms were available, common theme! We were awaken by construction they made sleeping late impossible. I was so unhappy I told my boyfriend I wanted to just go home. He has spent a lot of time in NOLA, stayed at many places but was told how great this hotel was and planned to propose but decided against it cause of our experience. Do not stay here, they don't care about their guests just taking your $!

This hotel looked wonderful in photos on their website. When you arrive, the exterior of the hotel looks very nice - it is a newer building but has been put together to match the the architecture surrounding it. The entrance, lobby and the restaurant/bar are very attractive. We arrived before check-in time. They said they had a room ready for us if we wanted it, but they wanted to give us a better room which we could have if we waited. We agreed, had lunch in their restaurant, checked our bags with the bellman, then went for a walk.

They offer a great service where they call you when the room is ready. We were on the other side of the French Quarter when they called. We finished what we were doing and headed back to get our room. We got our keys and went upstairs. When we opened the door we were.... underwhelmed. This was the room they said we should wait for since it was nicer? I can't imagine what the other room was like.

I was trying to reconcile the difference in the room we saw on their website with the room we were given. The "standard king" online looked so much larger. I imagine that they used a wide-angle lens in the shots to make it look larger. I did ask about the room at the desk and was told it was the right room. I also asked what they meant by saying they would give us a nicer room when we checked in. He had no answer for that.

This really is a shame. I will say it is a good thing we spent our days and evenings doing things outside of the hotel. The fewer hours in that room, the better.

We arrived for a wedding with high expectations based on the price and website. They did not inform us they would be doing construction. The noises began at the crack of dawn everyday including Saturday. The pool area was small because of all the scaffolding. It would have been nice to have enjoyed the hotel. The room was smaller than expected. Bathroom was very small. The construction took away from the beauty i am sure the hotel has.

Staff all seemed not excited about their jobs.

The restaurant was good! The goat cheese grits get an A+!

Arrived to the hotel and it's under construction. Location not bad if  you wanna stay in the French Quarter.  Hotel room was decent.  So we walked the qtr the whole summer day, needless to say we got alil sweaty jump in the shower and there is no water pressure at all.

Basically a decent place to sleep and kinda wash off. Oh and $42 a day to park, fyi.

Modern hotel in the French Quarter that still has a old feel to it. Free wifi with very helpful staff that will give you recommendations for the city as well as order you cabs etc. It's far enough away from the touristy bourbon st. that you don't get any of that noise pollution but close enough (2 blocks) that it's super easy to walk to.

Great experience staying there and would absolutely stay again on my next NOLA visit.
