Truly an amazing place to stay in New Orleans. Great, friendly service. Beautiful spacious rooms. The pool is top notch (especially during hotter days). Located close to Port of Call (amazing food), Buffa's (Great food & Sunday brunch) & a short walk to both Frenchman Street (many solid bars, music venues & outdoor art market) & the infamous Bourbon St....

We were here for 4 days. First of all, the staff is incredible! They're helpful, friendly, and have lots of attention to detail. The property and home is beyond gorgeous. The rooms was beautiful! A few things I thought I'd mention that slightly bugged me, but not enough to not come again. We had a room that the bed was... More

You need to stay at Melrose Mansion. From the wine and cheese to the great staff to being walking distance to everything you can possibly want to do. There is no better. We were so sad to leave and want to visit again real soon! Thank you so much for making our first trip to New Orleans so fantastic!

Greeted at the door by the nicest staff (Valarie ). Old school customer service. Mansion was beautiful, room was incredibly. Could not ask for anything more. We definitely will be back. Close to Bourbon street and all the excitement.

Great peaceful stay. I was limiting my review to the first three words. However this damn survey requires 200 words. What da ! Like I don't have other things to do. But I started it. When I stay again don't send me a ! Survey.

Mfproton5, Sometimes less is more, indeed! I'm glad those three words are all you needed to describe your experience here. Short and to-the-point! Come back and see us any time. There's plenty more 'peaceful' where that came from. See you soon. More

We got to the hotel and attempted to check in early. Mallory was pleasant, and tried to keep us in the know about the room - which was the grande balcony suite. Our 'early check in' was 330ish ... Based on the floors needing to dry. I can't say the floors were even washed. Spilled some white wine on the... More

The staff are very friendly and helpful, the property is immaculate and the location is perfect! On the higher end of $$$ but totally worth every penny! On the edge of the French Quarter and close to Frenchman Street; both of which are great locations for bars and dining.

The location is the second-best feature here, next to the mansion itself. The neighborhood is just so charming. Our guests tend to love feeling removed from the city while staying, as you said, close enough to all the music and food one can handle. It really provides a nice opportunity to experience what it's like to live here in the... More

Love Melrose Mansion. We stayed in a lovely cottage in the back with a private porch. It was spotless, quiet and charming. The pool was well maintained and staff were helpful. The location is wonderful, close to the French Market and Frenchman Street. I highly recommend this place.

The property is absolutely beautiful with lovely architecture, and a great location. Within walking distance to tons of great restaurants and live music venues in the Vieux Carre, Marigny, and Bywater neighborhoods. Room was comfortable. Pool was awesome. Everything was great!

It is a small place with only 23 rooms. It is just off the border of the French Quarter and right down the street from Frenchman Street. We checked in with Kenny and he was wonderful.

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighborhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
