Wednesday, June 12th, 2013 - Day One - Arriving At The Chateau LeMoyne
We would like to thank Dana R. Mathieu, Sales & Catering Coordinator,  Adrienne Breaux, Sales Manager, Leslie M. Minton, General Manager, Devin, Dan, Jerry, the
restaurant, and front desk staff for helping make our 2013 New Orleans reunion a great success.
Chateau LeMoyne  -  Named After the Father of New Orleans . The designer of our French Quarter hotel, James Gallagher, is an Irish immigrant who settled in New Orleans later changing his name to James Gallier. Gallier is actually the mastermind behind some of
Crescent City’s most impressive structures ever built. The Prominent New Orleans architect designed portions of what would one day be the Chateau LeMoyne in 1847.

Because of space limitations,  most houses were built to  the line of the banquette in Vieux Carre,  but our hotel is  comprised of three elegant  Greek Revival townhouses  set several  feet  back from  the street nestled  behind small  gardens,  making the  Chateau
LeMoyne  quite an  unusual and  authentic  piece of property.  Beginning at 317  Dauphine Street and winding its way around  the downtown-lake corner, the  Chateau LeMoyne estate  ends in a Gallier-designed edifice on the 900 block of Bienvielle, which was built
around 1857. A true treasure of New Orleans, our French Quarter boutique hotel contains a rich history that dates back even years before its official grand opening as a hotel in October 1971.  Info courtesy of the Holiday Inn Chateau LeMoyne website.
