Our first trip to NOLA from London - UK. The customer service experience is very good. Members of make you feel very welcome and go that extra mile to ensure that you are comfortable. Several examples are ensuring that we had peppermint tea for breakfast, guest services (sorry cannot remember the staff's name) kindly noted down all the key areas... More

Located amongst the locals the, hotel does not feel like a hotel. It is your home away from home. I stayed in a suite that had a full kitchen, living room, washer, dyer, one (1) full bath with a half bath, and a separate entrance accessible from the street. New Orleans was my absolute favourite place to be before I... More

We stayed for 6 nights in a Marigny apartment which was located a couple of doors down from the mansion but easily accessible from the "back way". The room was really spacious but the bed could've been a king size which let this studio apartment down. The other item they could have is a 2 seater couch which would make... More

This place is gorgeous. It's sophisticated, yet charming and romantic. Every time my partner and I stay here, we feel as though we are in New York, but without the over stimulating vibe of New York. I absolutely love this place. It's reminiscent of my actual home. The pool is so quaint. The team is warm and truly helpful. Do... More

This is day #2 out of 5 and I am hooked!!! Wyatt, Jordan, & all of the staff are super accommodating without the pretentious aura that some boutique hotels seem to posses. The grounds are exquisite and the rooms charming. We LOVE the 24 hr access to the pool...a fabulous way to unwind and cool off after a hot, busy... More

Sandra Bullock owns a house in New Orleans. For the last three weeks, I lived at Melrose Mansion, where I, too, experienced the magic of a living in a historical home and being made to feel like a celebrity. This is the second time I stayed at Melrose, the first was for my daughter’s wedding, and, as usual, I loved... More

We stayed here for seven days. Not sure how much time we needed for our first NOLA experience. Melrose is one of two places that was just in price range for the week. Plus they have an outdoor pool surrounding privacy with trees and landscaping. Pool was very important to me this time around. You feel as if you're at... More

We stayed here for 4 nights, and would definitely stay again. You're about a 10 minute walk from the Bourbon Street action, but far enough away that none of the noise made it back to the room. I liked the atmosphere of the place; it felt like you were staying in someone's home. We stayed in room #5, which is... More

Modern decor with personal customer service. Thin walls allowing every noise on the street to be heard. Hotel is a very old building with chipped and peeling plaster and uneven flooring. Shower from the room above leaked through the ceiling into the kitchen every day. Could be cleaned better since I found hair on the bedroom floor. Modern kitchen but... More

This is a perfect place for exploring the French quarter. It had good off road parking. The swimming pool provided welcome relief from the heat and humidity. We were in an annex attached to the main building but this is did not detract from a great stay. The room was of nicely laid out and off a good size and... More
