Located in the residential section of the French Quarter, the Maison Dupuy luxury classic hotel is only blocks from Bourbon Street but completely removed from the bustle of that tourist magnet. A collection of Civil War era buildings surround a secluded interior courtyard, where a white marble fountain gurgles and guests relax in the heated saltwater pool. Rooms are furnished with gilded mirrors, framed prints of New Orleans scenes, and pillow-top mattresses. After a recent renovation, the Maison Dupuy feels up to date without being modern. Rooms with balconies can be requested for a small charge.
