Our gorgeous French Quarter Victorian is on the National Register of Historic Places, and is equally as famous as a tourist attraction as it is a Hotel. The 'cornstalk' fence was erected in 1840 by the owner, recently married, who wanted to ease his bride's homesickness for her home state of Iowa.  The original owner, Judge Francois Xavier Martin, was  Chief Justice of the Louisiana Supreme Court and the author of the first history of Louisiana.


The Cornstalk Hotel has attracted many famous guests that include; Bill & Hillary Clinton, and even the "King" himself...Elvis graced the halls of The Cornstalk.


The Cornstalk features beautifully appointed rooms and all the amenities a guest could hope for.  Our historic and welcoming guest rooms with historic & comfortable furnishings will send you back in time.

While we are known for our Victorian charm, we understand the modern business traveler. Our Wireless Network is encrypted and is compatible with all operating systems. Relax on our balcony and enjoy the sights and sounds of the French Quarter (and check an e-mail or two!).
