We loved this hotel and would return. Friendly, helpful staff and a spacious, clean room in a beautifully renovated mansion. Complimentary happy hour, adequate breakfast. We liked the location just outside the French Quarter. An easy 10 min walk straight down Esplanade to the market or Frenchman St (much nicer than Bourbon St) or 15min to Jackson Square (choose a...

We were very impressed by description and photos, however our actual experience left ALOT to be desired!! I paid more for this room than any Ever and it was NOT that Great!! The balcony was much smaller that represented and not maintained and dirty! The door/window to said balcony would Not stay open! Termites visited nightly in the bathroom that... More

This venue is a beautifully renovated and well-maintained mansion on Esplanade Avenue located the "quiet" edge of the French Quarter. Our one-bedroom suite included a fully-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and full size appliances, washer and dryer, spacious living area, incredible tub (large enough for two) and shower combo, comfortable bed with wonderful linens and best of all -- a...

This is an old mansion converted into a hotel. It was our second stay and will not be the last. It is a stopover from our home to our son's. We always have the car loaded with household equipment as well as our clothes and amenities. They have you park in a gated drive for less than the downtown hotels.... More

Not sure what all the positive feedback is based on, or perhaps we are spoiled from previous stays at much more reasonably priced and MUCH MUCH more well kept, hospitable accommodations. We booked the 'Grade Balcony' as it was described as being luxurious and the BEST. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Maria and the bellman Eric (who sadly... More

I booked this hotel because I didn't want something in the middle of the French Quarter and I also wanted a real southern atmosphere. The building is gorgeous in a pleasant avenue just minutes from the French Quarter. The rooms are very spacious and the people are friendly and always available to help you! The only concern is about stairs.... More

A beautiful converted mansion very convenient to the French Quarter completely modernized and furnished with a mod décor!!! From the moment you walk in the door the staff greets you and treats you as if you were royalty! The rooms are spacious and comfortable and there are great places to eat nearby. I can't say enough good things about Melrose... More

Overall the property is stunning; absolutely breathtaking. There is no denying that fact. The location is fantastic. Maybe that's the problem. The management thinks the aesthetics are enough to make for a great stay. They are sadly mistaken. I travel frequently and most often stay at the Sonesta. This particular visit I stayed at a AirBnB in the Bywater and... More

for the amount of money we spent ($300/night after taxes + $26/night for parking) we expected more. The rooms were small, so sparsely furnished- just the bed and a small table with 2 plastic chairs, bathroom in a tight space. The shower was amazing though. I think they are def going for a modern look with everything in white and... More
