“Fantastic place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was our first time staying here, and we loved everthing about it. Staff is fabulous, friendly, attentive, and eager to help. Rooms are amazing, location perfect. Continental Breakfast to get you going and wine, cheese and crackers every evening. Will definitely come back and stay here!

Room Tip: Jacuzzi room facing the pool is a nice veiw.

I can't tell you how happy we were with the room and also how especially nice the entire staff was. This was the fifth time we've visited New Orleans and we've always stayed at different places. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left the entire staff treated us like we were the only people in the hotel. Everyone was so nice and a pleasure to talk to and always went out of their way to accommodate us. If you are looking to be out of the French Quarter but only about a 10 minute walk to the center then I would highly recommend this hotel. I know we'll be back.

My Wife and I stayed for 3 nights this past week in the middle of October. The staff were incredibly hospitable, helpful, friendly, and efficient. They will go to any length to make sure your stay is a 5 star experience. This luxury boutique hotel is in beautiful Victorian Gothic style architecture that was originally built in the late 1800”s and turned into a very inviting, charming, contemporary environment in 2011. No detail was overlooked. Don't stay anywhere else in The French Quarter. The hotel is positioned fabulously on Esplanade Avenue with everything within walking distance which is great for someone without a car. We loved it here and would definitely stay again.

This place is really fantastic. The staff were really friendly and very helpful. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The continental breakfast had plenty of good stuff to get you started until you could get over to Buffa's for some biscuits and gravy. The location is perfectly close and far enough away from the French Quarter. The pool area is so nice, it will suck you in for hours a day. Of course, a good review is a double edged sword for those of us who want to go back often, but this place is well deserving of all the business they can get. Don't let the ghosts keep you up at night. They played a mean trick on my buddy--they threw his bag of Blue Frog chocolate covered potato chips all over his bed while he was sleeping. At least they have a pretty good sense of humor.

We recently stayed at the Melrose with 30 of our friends for a week and every single person made comment on how impeccable the staff were. They were so obliging, so friendly, and so professional. And....trust, me we were a rowdy bunch. We had our wedding there also, and during the organisation of that, nothing was a problem for team at Melrose. So yes, it is the staff and service that shine at the Melrose, but I must also mention the Hotel itself. It is stunning, with a eclectic mix of modern and antique furniture with every suite being different. The suites on the top floor of the main house are exceptional and are character filled, yet still super clean and polished. Also the hotel is in the perfect location, right on the edge of the French Quarter. Everything is within walking distance, but you aren't amoungst the all night riff raff. I can't recommend the hotel enough, and think you would be crazy to choose anywhere else.

Room Tip: All the rooms are fabulous but my favourites are the rooms in main house.

I was visiting my daughter who lives in the Marigny and she picked this hotel for me. A beautiful converted mansion with some additional converted houses attached. It is beautifully restored and decorated in a relaxed neutral sophisticated style that I love. The room was massive with a large separate seating area. Breakfast is not extensive but is enough to tide you over until brunch. The evening wine time is a little on the early side but still a nice touch. Staff were low key but helpful. The pool was a stunning oasis. I'll be back for sure.

First time to NOLA and Melrose Mansion just set the bar very.. VERY high. Hotel is beautiful, staff is super friendly. Architecture and design are gorgeous and the pool is extra big. Can't wait to come back to NOLA and will most likely stay here again. Best way to experience the French Quarter!
