History of Jazz and
Hotel St. Pierre

Louis_Armstrong_Plaque.jpg (16218 bytes)

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.

In fact, Tennessee Williams, lived across the street from the Hotel, at 1014 Dumaine Street. He would stop in at the front desk quite often. Late in his life, Tennessee was frequently spotted the Hotels many courtyards visiting with friends who frequently stayed at the hotel.

Make voyages! Attempt them... there's nothing else.
Tennessee Williams

In New Orleans I found the kind of freedom I’d always needed. And the shock of it against the Puritanism of my nature has given me a subject, a theme, which I’ve probably never ceased exploiting.”
Tennessee Williams

“There it is, a proper enough American city, and yet the tourist is apt to see more nuns and naked women than he ever saw before.”
Walker Percy

“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.”
