When we arrived we could not believe how beautiful the mansion was! It was beautiful; very elegant and cultured. Check in was very quick and easy and the manager told us all about the houses history and showed us to our room. The rooms in the house each have a different new orleans theme. Our room was entered through a... More

I was booked in for a stay from 3-6 July 2014 and paid in full using hotels.com in November 2013. On 27 June received email telling me they were under new management and I had a choice of paying $1393 more or cancelling my stay and they would refund me. They then said they couldn't refund me as they haven't... More

Dear Debbie, I am very sorry that you were unable to stay at the Magnolia Mansion. However, we are under new management and ownership and you were staying with us on one of the busiest weekends of the year. We were never paid by the booking agency you chose to reserve a room through, so according to our documentation and... More

Our wedding was fabulous! The only drawback is our wedding was June 4, 2014, and we have still have not received the actual certified marriage license. We received a letter two weeks after the wedding saying two portions were omitted from the license. To be fair, these two items are not actually a part of the license. I contacted mansion... More

I am very familiar with this incident. I want to first say that is was an honor having you all in the Mansion and being a part of your wedding. It was truly amazing and I am glad that you all enjoyed every minute. I am so very sorry that the marriage license issue took so long to fix. Unfortunately... More

Beautiful mansion,some rooms are fabulous,some are NOT!the breakfast is substandard,the quantity and quality could be allot better,as there isn't really isn't any restaurants close by for breakfast.I rented all the rooms for a girls trip to New Orleans. The owners presence in the mansion is ominous,and makes guests feel unwelcome and uncomfortable.There isn't enough towels in the rooms,some of the... More

I remember this group very well. First off, let it be stated that the above review was written by someone who Did Not stay in our hotel! We were very accommodating to this group and when they showed up with double the people that were originally booked, we were very gracious and let it slide with no extra charges. They... More

My wife and I stayed at Magnolia Mansion from May 12 - 16, 2014. We found the staff respected our privacy. Night time was absolutely quiet. The staff was friendly and engaging. We enjoyed breakfast with a celebrity which was an added bonus. We definitely will return.

I stayed at Magnolia Mansion with my cousin and our friend. The mansion is beautiful and comfortable, the staff very sweet, and all we needed was there. Very quiet, we had our needs met without having our privacy invaded. A dream come true is all I can say. I will definitely go back!

My husband and I spent 4 fabulous nights here for our honeymoon in 2004. I have such wonderful memories of not only the beauty of the place, but the warm welcome and great hostess!! The location is wonderful and a great spot to get a good rest.

Magnolia Mansion looks great from the street. However, once you check in it’s a totally different story. Friends of ours stayed here four years ago and loved it, but it no longer offers the hospitality they experienced. I can’t recall ever being treated this badly. At this price, I have certain expectations and this place did not meet them. The... More

My parents and I stayed here in 2010 while vacationing. I absolutely loved it! The mansion is gorgeous, the history of the architecture, impressive, and the location is stellar. It was such a short walk to the trolley and a cab at night was quite inexpensive. I really enjoyed the quirks of an older place that had updated enough for... More

We expected more from Magnolia Mansion. While the common areas are gorgeous, the room we received, in the lower level, was sub par. One electic outlet was literally sticking out of the wall, and another one was missing, leaving an exposes hole in the bathroom wall. The TV was ancient, as in it came with a built in VCR, and...
