Venue Details

Margaret Place is an adult-only ultra-boutique hotel that merges futuristic luxury with historic architecture. Designed and operated by young architect Trenton Gauthier, AIA, it is a living laboratory for advancing hospitality, residential design, and event production. Either as a hotel or an event venue, the property creates the feeling of staying at your friend’s mansion. It’s not for everyone, but for those who know™, it’s the obvious choice.

The historic 1854 greek revival home has operated continuously as lodging since 1862. The property consists of a spacious courtyard, kitchen, dining room, and parlor on the ground floor and six guest rooms on the upper floors. It was painstakingly renovated to National Park Service standards from 2015 to July 2020 to provide unmatched comfort while maintaining the authentic historic features.

The location, at the convergence of the Lower Garden District, Central City, and Downtown offers a uniquely varied and full experience of the city within walking distance.
