I spent a long weekend in New Orleans and while I wanted to be close to Bourbon Street and the night scene, I didn't want to sleep right in the noise and mayhem. Melrose Mansion was the perfect place. It is just at the top end of bourbon street, within a tree lined street and a beautiful piece of serenity. The rooms are beautifully appointed and luxurious while not being over done. Comfortable beds and the stark white walls with the black wood flooring made it feel like a step back into the colonial past. The brunch is very much a continental style with cereal, yoghurt, fruit and pastries. The pool was lovely and the sound of running water was very peaceful before heading out into the mayhem of the french quarter. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and all in all, it was the perfect choice for a quiet night after the busy days of sightseeing, drinking and eating
