Named for a wealthy French-Italian cardinal
Jules Mazarin, a French-Italian, lived from 1602 to 1661. During those 59 short years, he was a cardinal, a diplomat, a politician, and a collector of art and jewels. He was particularly fond of diamonds and amassed a world-renowned collection. His most famous diamond was the “Mirror of Portugal,” a 26-carat stone Mazarin fashioned from a stone found in India. Because of Mazarin’s affinity for diamonds AND because of the particularly exquisite qualities of the rooms and setting, this hotel is often referred to as “The Diamond of the French Quarter.” You will be pleased with this choice for your accommodations when you visit New Orleans.
