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.
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.
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.
