Chateau LeMoyne-French Quarter, located at 301 Dauphine St. in New Orleans, completed an eight-month long renovation that updated the hotel’s 171 guestrooms, which include 30 rooms with balconies overlooking the streets of the French Quarter and 11 suites. The lobby, event spaces, and the exterior pool and courtyard area were also rejuvenated.
Chateau LeMoyne worked with Texas-based design firm Flick Mars to complete the French Industrial style interior. The property now has leather, green and gold accents combined with modern furnishings. The design team also retained the original exposed brick walls, Edison light bulbs, hints of natural wood and vintage artwork. Local touches, such as wooden Mint Julep art installations, are found in many of the guestrooms.
Named for the founder of New Orleans, Jean Baptiste LeMoyne, the original building was built in 1847, and designed by architect James Gallier. Gallier designed many of the Crescent City’s structures, including Gallier Hall, St. Patrick’s Church and the Pontalba buildings.
Amenities at the New Orleans hotel include mini fridges, 48-inch flat screens, USB power ports, illuminated vanity mirrors and Wi-Fi connectivity in all guestrooms and meeting spaces.
The hotel’s garden courtyard received a makeover as well with all new outdoor furniture, and its re-plastered and re-tiled heated saltwater swimming pool.
For events, Chateau LeMoyne has more than 2,000 square feet of space. Events can open up onto, or be held in the private garden courtyard as well.
