The Parisian Courtyard Inn isa special place to host weddings, parties, meetings and family gatherings. The exquisite double parlors, the spiral staircase and the three patios provide a grand setting for all our guests to enjoy the ambiance of old New Orleans.

Our friendly longtime innkeeper Jesse will pay attention to your every need inside and out. He can also be your guide to many sites to visit within walking distance, such as the Garden District and the Civil War Ogden Museum, and many great spots on historic St. Charles Avenue a block away. Did you know New Orleans has the premier World War II Museum in the country? Jesse’s got the inside track on all the New Orleans restaurants and the eclectic shopping you’ll find on world famous Magazine Street. Around the corner on St. Charles Ave., which is the Mardi Gras Parade Route, you can hop aboard the Street Car for sightseeing rides to The French Quarter, Bourbon St., Audubon Park, Canal St., The Aquarium of the Americas, The River Walk, The New Orleans Convention Center, Harrah's Casino and more.
The Parisian Courtyard Inn is one of the oldest buildings in New Orleans. Built in 1846 by Rufus McIlhenny of the Tabasco family. The monolithic columns frame the wrought iron balcony to protect the stucco facade and 12 foot walk thru windows. Enter the huge door to the great hall with double parlors and a sweeping six-foot circular staircase to upstairs. Front and rear brick and slate courtyards with fountains provide a tranquil, relaxing setting.
In 2005-2006 the home was lovingly restored retaining the historic charm while incorporating all the modern amenities expected in a fine hotel. New baths separate HVAC in each room, hardwood floors, carpet, TV/DVD and refrigerators.
The Parisian Courtyard Inn offers something for all occasions, whether you need Accommodations, Weddings, Parties, Graduations, Seminars, Business Meetings or more. We’ve added the modern conveniences, but our craftsmen have lovingly restored the mansion to its original old world elegance.
