Chateau LeMoyne: Historic charm in the French
Quarter of New Orleans
By Tara Jacobs


Chateau LeMoyne is an ideal retreat from the bustle of New Orleans' Bourbon Street, only steps away. In the peaceful tranquility of the hotel's beautiful surroundings, it is nearly impossible to believe that the non-stop party is so close by. Chateau LeMoyne is a full-service hotel on Dauphine Street, a quiet, historic residential street in New Orleans' French Quarter. The hotel is perfectly placed in the midst of all the Quarter has to offer—fine dining, antique shops, art galleries, the marketplace and more—all within easy reach of Chateau LeMoyne.

Entering the hotel, originally a collection of Greek Revival townhouses and elegantly designed residences built around 1857, you feel transported back in time. The central courtyard is a lush, tropical oasis that radiates its origins. While lounging by the heated outdoor pool that now adorns this space, you can easily envision the bustling household of old. A second, smaller inner courtyard's ivy covered brick walls, bubbling fountain, and sweetly scented air offer a romantic, intimate setting with old-world charm.

Some say a bit of history may still linger here today. The deluxe suites just off of the courtyard served another purpose in the distant past—slave quarters. Today the exposed brick and rough-hewn beams lend charm and ambiance to these two-room suites. Rumor has it spectral occurrences may occasionally lend their own unique ambiance, as well!

It isn't surprising that this hotel has become a favorite among savvy travelers looking for modern comfort in authentic surroundings. Weekends are often booked months in advance. What may surprise some is that this historic hotel is part of the Holiday Inn chain. The result is a perfect marriage of unique charm and superior customer service.

Rooms come equipped with free wi-fi, in-room coffeemaker, work desk, voicemail, dataport, hairdryer, and an iron and ironing board. The sophisticated traveler looking for a hotel experience to remember will find it here at French Quarter's Chateau LeMoyne in the Big Easy!
