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