History

Le Pavillon can be found on Poydras Street and is just a few minutes away from the French Quarter, Convention Center and the Superdome. One of the grandest hotels in New Orleans, Le Pavillon continues to attract thousands of visitors to the state each year. The land which the hotel stands on today, used to belong to the Jesuits. After the Jesuits were expelled, the hotel became Mr. Gravier’s property. However, as his fortunes declined, the condition of the hotel also declined.

In the 1870’s the land was embroiled in a legal problem which even went as far as the Supreme Court. La Baronne Realty acquired the property and erected a hotel called Hotel Denechaud on the site which was considered the finest hotel in the South. The hotel ownership passed into new hands in the 1970s and restoration was undertaken. Crystal chandeliers were imported from Czechoslovakia, marble floors were installed and Italian columns were erected, giving birth to what is now known as Le Pavillon.
