While the Chateau LeMoyne may be new to Messina’s Catering and Events, it’s certainly not new to the Crescent City. Chateau LeMoyne is a grand Antebellum-era Southern mansion that dates back to the mid-1800s. Located at the center of the famed French Quarter, Chateau LeMoyne is a nostalgic blend of wrought iron railings on white wood balconies and arched brick alcoves built around an old French-style courtyard. Now a Holiday Inn IHG hotel, Chateau LeMoyne is the ideal spot for a romantic New Orleans wedding, a Mardi Gras event, New Orleans corporate meeting, or a Family Shower. It checks all the special event venue boxes; indoor ballroom event space, outdoor courtyard event space, an on-site hotel, on-site guest parking, and it’s historic to boot! It has a max seated capacity of 120 guests and a max standing capacity of 200 guests for receptions.
Past Meets Present
Chateau LeMoyne is a mid-sized hotel with 171 rooms with plenty of spaces to lounge and gather around the property. The hotel was built 140 years ago and was designed by famed New Orleans architect James Gallier, a master of the Greek Revival style in the 19th Century. Gallier’s other famous New Orleans landmarks include Gallier Hall, the Charles Exchange Hotel, and the Old St. Patrick’s Church. Throughout Chateau LeMoyne are architectural details common to a Gallier design, such as brick archways, statuary, a turtle pond, an original brick deck, and a covered garden patio. There are two brick-paved courtyards on the property. The newly-remodeled Conti Parlor and Patio, which opens to the courtyard pool area, is a gorgeous setting for a Cocktail Party, NOLA Brunch, or a Corporate Welcome Party. The private Dauphine and Bienville Ballrooms are adjacent to The Royal Room and a large courtyard which has been a popular setting for New Orleans Wedding Ceremonies, NOLA catered weddings, and corporate events.
Here you’ll also find modern conveniences, like WiFi, an ATM, a business center, a concierge as well as a complimentary coffee bar in the lobby. The ballroom is newly renovated and opens onto a flourishing and verdant courtyard. Chateau LeMoyne offers 2,064 square feet of versatile space, lots of ambient natural lighting, and unmistakable New Orleans Southern Charm!
The Ideal French Quarter Location
Located at 301 Dauphine Street in the very heart of Vieux Carre (French Quarter), Chateau LeMoyne is Just one block off of famed Bourbon Street and two blocks from the restaurants and shopping on Canal Street. It’s close to everything that makes a New Orleans getaway so unique, yet far enough to offer a quiet respite. For music lovers, the location couldn’t be more ideal. The hotel is just a two-minute walk from The New Orleans Musical Legends Park. At the same time, Preservation Hall, the historic venue dedicated to authentic New Orleans jazz, takes only seven minutes on foot. You’ll find the Garden District, the Mercedes Benz Superdome, and the Central Business District just a few minutes away. It’s close to everything you want to experience in New Orleans but far enough away for a peaceful night’s sleep.
