My husband and I stayed at Melrose Mansion last Thursday through Monday for a big celebration. We celebrated our wedding with a wedding party and then celebrated my 50th birthday. We were so happy with the Melrose Mansion on so many levels. The staff were welcoming and friendly and the property is stunning. Attention to detail, spotless, period features, quirky... More

Melrose Mansion will be my go to first choice from now on whenever I go to New Orleans. The room was very clean and comfortable, the shower was the absolute best I've ever enjoyed. The staff was helpful and attentive, without being intrusive.

You can stay at the Ritz in New Orleans - which I did before (nice!) or at the St. Marie (how the hell did I land in this place:-(() - or you make it easy on yourself, and go to best right in the beginning. It's such a stunningly beautiful house, decorated with a good hand. The location is perfect... More

Great hotel. So glad we stayed here. Service was stellar, room and common areas were clean and orderly. Location was good and can walk to most venues in a short amount of time. Port of Call across the street is an excellent restaurant. Try to get the bungalow in the back if available.

Melrose Mansion offered the perfect home base for our exploration of New Orleans. Frenchman's Street, the French Quarter, and public transportation were steps from the mansion, but our room was a quiet refuge at the end of each busy day. Staff was friendly and efficient. Breakfast was just enough to get us started in the morning, so we could indulge... More

Melrose Mansion is a very well restored property which has been tastefully furnished and decorated. The staff are very efficient and pleasant. It is in a quiet location bordering the amusing but chaotic French Quarter. It will definitely be my choice of hotel on my return in future.

My husband and I were fortunate enough to stay at Melrose Mansion on our last trip to New Orleans. The staff is top notch and the accommodations are incredible. We have stayed in many hotels in New Orleans, but none have compared to our experience at Melrose Mansion.

Melrose mansion is conviently located and very Beautiful with easy access to the French quarter and city park. Melrose is the perfect Honeymoon getaway with its stunning beauty. You are also steps away from some of the best burgers New Orleans has to offer at Snug Harbor

This hotel was quaint, and in a perfect location. In a residential neighborhood and was so comfortable. The staff were extremely accommodating . A little home away from home. A complete different experience then a normal hotel and was truly made to feel as the only person there even though they were completely booked. A beautiful pool, that added to... More

Location is most important for our travels, and the Melrose Mansion, located on the corner of Esplanade and Burgundy, pulls you outside of the mess of the French Quarter and into its residential neighborhoods. Walk anyplace: to the Treme through Armstrong Park, to Frenchmen for music at night, to Cafe du Monde for coffee and a beignet. The rooms are... More
