|From the earliest days of slavery, African-Americans
congregated at Congo Square every Sunday to dance and sing to an African
drumbeat - the only place in the South where this was permitted. Eventually Marie Laveau
would transform these gatherings into her unique form of Voodoo. During
its heyday, the great priestess Marie Laveau came often to Congo Square and lucky were
those who witnessed the great Queen dance with her snake!
Quite appropriately, The
New Orleans Jazz Museum, the first Jazz Museum in the world,
opened at the Hotel in 1961. It was a success from the start! Louis Armstrong
stayed at the Hotel and a plaque in the main cottage marks this occasion. The hotel has,
throughout its history, regularly hosted musicians, bands as well as artists and writers.

We so much enjoyed our stay at The Hotel St. Pierre. Why anyone
would come to N'awlins & stay at one of the chain hotels, when there are unique,
historic inns such as yours. You immediately get a taste for the unique atmosphere of the
French Quarter as soon as you walk through the door.
