This marks the first time that a New Orleans hotel has achieved this accolade.

Each year, Fodor's Travel invites their roster of 500 local contributors around the world to nominate the best hotels in their destinations.

With every stay, we obsess over design choices, service, and amenities," explained Arabella Bowen, Fodor's Travel executive editorial director. "To compile the Fodor's 100 list, we look for properties within emerging destinations, trends our editors have been seeing throughout the year, new and noteworthy hotels and enduring favorites to create a list that will inspire all types of travel and travelers."

As a 2013 Fodor's 100 Hotel Award-winning property, Hotel Maison De Ville will be featured on and in a free interactive eBook, available in the iBookstore. A complete list of all 100 selected hotels is available at

About Hotel Maison De Ville
Located in the heart of the historic French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana, Hotel Maison De Ville is a true representation of Southern hospitality in a small luxury boutique hotel.

It was home to both Antoine Peychaud and Tennessee Williams. Famous past guests include Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor, Paul McCartney, Robert Redford, and former First Lady Bird Johnson.
