Melrose Mansion
937 Esplanade Ave, New Orleans, LA US 70116

Location

Located on historic Esplanade Avenue on the edge of the French Quarter, this opulent French Quarter mansion is a secluded New Orleans oasis.

Why Stay Here

The Melrose is a classic courtyard mansion with large French windows, roomy balconies with fingerlace ironwork, and pillared verandas. A grand staircase takes guests to their rooms.

Resort Details

This sophisticated mansion offers all the amenities of a grand hotel with the intimacy and personal service found in a fine New Orleans home. With nine modern styled decorated suites in the mansion itself, and five additional suites in the Napolean House located behind the mansion, some visitors come to find the mysteries that lie behind these century old shutters. For others, it is the curiosity to experience what it is like to unwind and enjoy the luxuries of a beautifully restored Victorian Mansion after a recent $2 million renovation. At the completely NON SMOKING Melrose, the attention to detail will make you feel uniquely New Orleans.

 

Accommodation Details

Each suite showcases antique furnishings, shuttered windows, ebony-stained hardwood floors, and cathedral ceilings with large chandeliers. All suites have a king or queen-sized bed and an array of modern luxuries: 350-thread count linens, wireless internet, mini-fridge, a large flat-screen LCD television, and an iPod docking station. The ever popular Donecio Suite has been called `the most romantic bedroom in New Orleans` and is a favorite with honeymooners.

A light continental breakfast is served daily and can be enjoyed in the parlor or poolside. There is a small on-site gym well-equipped with free weights and cardiovascular and strength machines.

When not exploring the historic streets of the French Quarter, walk back to the Melrose and splash into the refreshing pool or relax on a lounge chair and gaze at the tropical lushness that surrounds you.

The Melrose Mansion has a complimentary Amenity package which includes welcome amenities upon arrival, a continental breakfast, wine and cheese served nightly, unlimited local and long distance phone calls, FREE wi-fi and usage of the in-room safe with up to $20,000 safe insurance, and 24 hour usage of the fitness center.

Pros: I wish the breakfast had a little more variety but it's ok. Cheese and wine was great. They brought it to our room. The shower was awesome I could spend all day there. Our room had a balcony view but the tress blocked the view. On the quiet residential area. There were a lot of taxes on the bill though. Parking is charged daily but it's convinient.

Out of the 4 nights I stayed in this gothic style mansion, I was only impressed with one. A new employee pleasantly greeted me and I even spent almost an hour in the lobby just chatting with her and Brian. The first night was excellent with the exception of me slipping and falling in the marble bathroom due to a maintenance issue in the room I was staying in. The next day I addressed the issue with a different employee due to the fact that Brian was not available. The employee was working his fi... Read more

Wow! This is the best! Perfect location, staff is amazing, beautiful grounds and facility. We celebrated or 31st Anniversary here and had a blast! Can't say enough good things about it!

Stay couldn't have been better. Everybody is nice. Centrally located in very close to many restaurants and sites. The pool is 24 hours and that is huge. I have been working on my cannonball since I got here and it has improved vastly. I owe all of my Campbell skills to the Melrose mansion

Came across this guest house whilst browsing last minute deals and my gosh, I'm glad I booked. A wonderful experience from start to finish... Attentive staff, beautiful decor, healthy breakfasts, complimentary wine and a stunning pool area. It felt like a real escape from the hustle and bustle of NOLA, but cross the road and you're in the French Quarter. Wish we could have stayed longer!

the Mansion is chic and convenient. Loved our suite, which felt like we owned the place. The interior decorator deserves to be mentioned ;). It was like living local and really added to the fun. We could order from Buffa's next door 24/7 and could head over to the action when we wanted to with a quick walk to Frenchman, Bourbon or even Jackson Square.

Wow. Just wow. This place is beautiful!! The rooms are huge, the pool is amazing, the location is great. What more can you ask for?? A bar you can eat/drink at 24/7? There's one right across the street! One of my favorite things about this hotel was the 24/7 outdoor pool. The way it was lit up at night was breathtaking. I loved this place!!! Need a romantic getaway? Stay here! Traveling with friends? Stay here! Moral of this review? Stay here!!!!!

I would move in and never leave! The staff was very welcoming and knowledgeable of the area. The atmosphere was impeccable! I recommend staying in the Contempory Jaccuzi Suite! The only downfall was "breakfast". It was only a few snacks. Other than that, I loved every minute of it!

Stayed for one night during a trip through the area. Gorgeous old house that has been renovated into a hotel. Great location within walking distance to all of the restaurants and sights in the French Quarter. A wine and cheese social was nice and a great surprise. The breakfast was cold cereal and some muffins, but there are plenty of near by restaurants. The staff were attentive and very helpful and the available parking was great in the crowded neighborhood. Great hotel.

wonderful experience, great food, friendly people, overall A+. I would suggest going to the grocery store and the famous spice store to cook while you are indoors. It is the most beautiful Kitchen; and after dinner, a nice hot soak in the sunken tub...Just Simply Marvelous!!

Stayed 4 days at the Melrose Mansion and I do not have anything bad to comment. The staff was courteous and very professional. The room was clean and the architecture of the hotel is beautiful. My wife and I had a romantic get away and we had a blast. They know all the right spots to visit and eat. Thank you Lisa and Brian and the rest of the staff that I forgot their name for their hospitality and attention. We definitely are coming back.

Melrose Mansion was everything I hoped it would be. Beautifully restored property with a great staff, pool and location. We were able to walk just about everywhere from this location. The office staff booked an excursion for us and we were picked up/dropped off right at the property. We used the trolley system to visit the Garden District. There is a flat rate cab fee to and from the airport of $36.00. I would stay here again and recommend it to others.

What a charming and wonderful retreat located in one of my favorite neighborhoods in New Orleans. The staff at Melrose Mansion were absolutely wonderful and I cannot wait to visit again. If you love the old world charm that New Orleans offers with a modern decor, then this is the place to be. I wish I had four hands to give this place four thumbs up!!!

Friendly staff, awesome pool, nice breakfast. What more can I say? Quiet at night--far away from the rowdies on Bourbon. Close to Frenchman Street and the live bands. Will stay here again, for sure. Far enough away from the crowds but close enough for a 10-15 minute walk home from dinner/drinks. Room was always clean and we really enjoyed the wine and cheese from 4:30pm to 5:30pm daily--right before a night out. Great job Melrose Mansion!

We are currently staying here. Let me say the room is gorgeous, the bar (buffa's) next door has delicious burgers, and Mallory at the front desk is wonderful. The hotel is in a sketchy area and there's been numerous panhandlers around the hotel including our front door step. Not comfortable for 4 women out of town.The security here is not good. Anyone can enter the property and the suites are not in the main house but two houses away. You can reach your room through dark corridors that can be re... Read more

OK, maybe not quite in the Marigny, but on the border of this cool part of town and the French Quarter, which is OK too, if you stay off Bourbon Street. We had a standard room and the small fridge was nice along with a great bathroom. Ceiling fan and A/C, so you had your choice to deal with the heat. Pool is lovely. Staff very nice. Free continental breakfast, but you can always go right next door to Buffa's for great food, including breakfast. It's a dive bar, but what is the big NO isn't... Read more

Just not what its made out to be. Wish someone would wake up the owners. Airconditioning breakdowns, Hour long check-ins, Rude staff (except maybe Brian), Negligible housekeeping, imaginary breakfasts etc etc. Its as if the front desk does you a favour by letting you stay here. They could do so much with this property, but......

Melrose Mansion is in a great location being within walking distance of the French Quarter. I walked there and took the pedicab back. The staff goes over the top to make sure you have a wonderful stay. I was greeted at the door each time I arrived. The staff made wonderful suggestions on where to eat, how to use Uber the first time and I could go for a swim in the beautiful pool anytime. I will definitely stay there on my next visit.

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 floor and cleaned up after. The towel was very dark and dirty after. White wine wouldn't have done that. After arranging with Brian a bottle in the room upon checkin for my partne... Read more
