Big Easy Buzz: Maison de la Luz to Open in April

(No) Maison de la Luz, slated to open in April in New Orleans, will have 67 guestrooms.

Visitors to New Orleans will have a new option for elegance this spring: Maison de la Luz. Expected to open in April, this luxury guest house sits amidst history, with the city’s second oldest park Lafayette Square less than a block away and New Orleans’ former City Hall just next door.

On Maison de la Luz’s first floor, visitors will find a place to socialize morning and evening. Guests can make sure to start their day on the right foot in the Breakfast Room, where an extensive à la carte menu will serve sweet and savory dishes. Just steps away, the guest-only Living Room will provide cocktails and, every night, wine and cheese. Yes, please!

Those looking for a full meal will not have to look far. Across the street, guests can visit Italian eatery Josephine Estelle or, just a block away, they can eat sustainably harvested seafood at Seaworthy. Tip: Both hold priority reservations for Maison de la Luz guests.

But, if visitors want the full Maison de la Luz experience, Luxury Travel Advisor recommends heading to The Library Bar. The venue marks the first U.S. endeavor from Quixotic Projects, a French hospitality group well-known for its Parisian restaurants. Located in the library of the former City Hall, the bar can be accessed from Maison de la Luz via a guest-only entrance. Surrounded by curated paintings, books and furnishings, visitors will be able to dine on French-inspired small plates while drinking craft cocktails.

Maison de la Luz will have 67 guestrooms, all filled with custom furnishings and original artwork. With four tiers of accommodations, the Deluxe Suite stands out as the best of the best. With two walls of windows, these corner rooms include a living room, king bed, plentiful closet space and a four-fixture bathroom.
