Discover Hilton New Orleans/St. Charles Avenue, which was once the Louisiana Masonic Temple and one of New Orleans' first skyscrapers.

Hilton New Orleans/St. Charles Avenue was constructed during the “Roaring Twenties,” in which flappers, the radio, and the Art Deco movement defined the age.

Originally constructed in 1926 as the Louisiana Masonic Temple, The Hilton New Orleans St. Charles Hotel was designed by architect Sam Stone Jr. and built by James Stewart & Company. One of New Orleans' first skyscrapers, the historic 18-story structure was dedicated in February of 1927, and featured a 1,000-person theater, Grand Chapel, and three elegant ballrooms, in addition to the Masonic office space. The modern Gothic building remained as the Masonic Temple until 2000 when it was purchased by The Kimpton Hotel Group. After a $34 Million renovation, the building opened as the Hotel Monaco in the summer of 2001. In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated the City of New Orleans, leaving the temple with flood waters in the basement and on the first floor. In 2007, the historic landmark reopened as the Hilton New Orleans St. Charles Avenue, and has remained a distinguished treasure of Louisiana.
