Historical Traveler Reviews Maison Orleans New Orleans

What a gem!

from

Booked package at Ritz-Carlton for anniversary weekend. Ended up in double room at R-C (very average and not what we were hoping for). Upon notifying the manager that this was a special occasion, we were immediately upgraded to the Maison Orleans! What a difference that made in our weekend. Complimentary food, wine, other beverages provided throughout the day - the really "nice" type, too. Elaborate pastries, sandwiches, cheeses, salads, etc. Awesome! The service was fabulous. The location of a "boutique hotel" within the R-C was a little confusing at first...we kept taking the wrong elevators and wandering a bit.. but it was nothing compared to the luxurious room and service we received. It was sooo nice to just step out of the room and grab a quick glass of wine and a snack before heading out to the French Quarter. I would recommend this place to anyone that enjoys a little extra pampering. Also - staff was great. Mentioned to Dexter in the gift shop that this was a special occasion and he presented us with a set of lovely glasses as a gift! All staff seemed to go above and beyond to make our stay memorable.

Maison Orleans "Rocks"

from

Our family of 4 includes a 13y/o girl and a 10y/o boy, we stayed at the Ritz in the Maison Orleans section, it was just FABULOUS. We paid for the "Club" option and it was truly worth it. At all times there were beverages available for the kids and adults presented in a truly charming setting. The breakfast was wonderful, bagels, lox, fruit, pastries and delicious hot coffee. Tea time came in handy, after a long day of sight seeing, the "Club" offered a nice relaxing setting for a quick snack. When we returned from dinner, we would stop by the "club" and bring a glass of wine up to our room. We never needed room service, it was great. The staff was terrific and the hotel Spa was lovely. The most memorable part of our trip was bumping into Steven Tyler of Aerosmith..TWICE, once in the hotel elevator and once walking back to the hotel, the kids actually talked with him, he was so incredibly nice to our kids, he looks AMAZING, he looks at least 10 years younger than he is. When we got home we immediately bought their new album "Honkin On Bobo", our kids LOVED New Orleans for the food, the Aquarium, IMAX theater, Voodoo, the Hermann Grima House tour, having their palms read, but the greatest memory is of the Maison Orleans and meeting Steven Tyler twice, and talking to him!!!

Tremendous potential

from

spectacular rooms and common areas. staff was not held to the same standard as the rooms and decor (as of my 2003 visit). advance booked yet staff turnover impacted ability to secure the best restaurants (kept losing my restaurant requests every time staff turned)..pricey for the town but well worth it if they can deliver the service..

Great--but some things not up to par

from

I loved this hotel--very luxurious, Huge bathroom . A few odd things--when I reported that the hair dryer was missing, the person who delivered it literally Held it out of my reach until I checked again.

Also , the room was missing a chair . However, the service was for the most part extraordinary and the whole experience mostly good. I'd go again--but would demand perfection for the price:)

This aint the Ritz

from

For over $500 per day the room was the most over priced of any hotel at which I have stayed in 30 years. My room over looked a parking lot and a giant air conditioning compressor. The room was noisy,hair on the over-sized bath tub, no toilitries the second day and water at $4.00 abottle. This hotel is part of the ritz Carlton chain but does measure up to most Ritz Carlton hotels. This is not a good choice for a seasoned travelor.

My favorite hotel in the world!!

from

The rooms are gorgeous and the staff is the most accomodating I have ever encountered.

The Maison Orleans was superb!

from

We stayed at the Maison Orleans for our honeymoon on the weekend of 8/23. The rooms were absolutely fabulous. Everything about the hotel is elegant, the location is great, and the staff was wonderful. I ordered the Napoleon's bath for my wife (it was beautiful), and the butler had it ready by the time we arrived so I could surprise her. On a weekend full of memories, the Maison Orleans stands out. My wife and I can't wait for our anniversary so we can return to this wonderful hotel.

Charming & Warm, Worth A Visit Again & Again

from

Maison Orleans is one of the best hotels I have stayed at. Every room has that old European charm. The decorations very warm, very clean, food is excellent (love those double chocolate chip cookies and iced tea!), and most of all, the staff are very hospitable. I totally recommend this hotel to everyone! We were just there 2 weeks ago, and already we are planning a second visit. Loved it loved it loved it!

Loved Maison Orleans

from

We stayed at the Maison Orleans 7/17-7/19/03. It was wonderful. The rooms are very beautiful and the bathroom was fabulous. The tub is huge and can easily fit two people. They had food "presentations" set out I think 3 times a day. We made it down for breakfast every morning and they had delicious muffins and fruit out. One of my favorite things was when you walk into the lobby it smells like magnolias or some other fresh flower that is beautiful. I think the Maison Orleans was my favorite part of the trip. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is willing to pay for it. We found a good deal on travelocity for $175 per night and it was well worth that amount. Our friends stayed at Royel Sonesta. I thought there rooms weren't very nice at all. If you do go to Maison Orleans use the spa and the spa facilities. The spa is incredible and they offer really unique services.

LOVED THE MAISON ORLEANS

from

Stayed at Maison Orleans during the Essence festival and I must say it is a very nice hotel and very friendly staff. However, afterwards I received a charged on my credit card when I had prepaid for that room through hoteldiscounts.com

While we are on the trolley, a guy starts yelling out the window at another guy outside. I can't figure out what is going on, but when the outside guys gets on, it becomes apparent that he has dropped some money from his pocket and the guy on the trolley was trying to tell him. The trolley driver lets him off and the passengers cheer him on as he valiantly goes running back to his dropped money- hope he ...

There were a couple famous doughnuts with our names on them at Cafe Du Monde. They didn’t last long.

Today, we had breakfast at a neighborhood coffee shop in the Marigny district where we were staying. Next we decided to hit the swamp tour and see alligators! A short drive away, and we were at Dr. Wagner's Honey Island Swamp Tours. We enjoyed the extended version of the Disneyland jungle cruise. The animals were real, and bots ...

... It’s my favourite drink and I was starting to think that it had been discontinued, as every place I’ve tried to get it hasn’t had any….to celebrate I bought three cans! Happy with this find, we hopped back onto a streetcar and headed back to the hotel, where we crashed out with the ceiling fan on…New Orleans is really hot! We’re looking forward to spending the day in the city tomorrow, as it’s our only full day here before we hit the road again. Deej ...
