The Story Behind This Historic New Orleans Hotel

The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans opened in 2000, but the hotel’s building has a history that goes back more than a century. Originally built as Maison Blanche Department Store between 1906 and 1909. The home of The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans currently stands as one of the city’s grandest Beaux-Arts structures. Aside from being a retail department store, Maison Blanche became an arbiter of culture through its involvement with the city of New Orleans. The upper floors of this prestigious address were used as offices—home to businesses as well as medical and legal practitioners. It was also home to WSMB- Radio, the first radio station in New Orleans. Today, the Maison Blanche Building, known as the “Crown Jewel of Canal Street,” is recognized by the City of New Orleans as a Historic District Landmark.  We look forward to welcoming you with a signature blend of classic charm and modern convenience that can only be found at The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans.
