This place seems really nice and staff are amazing. I don't get how I paid a grand for 4 days and end up with a converted closet as a room. I'm serious. I did 2 tours Iraq and stayed in some nice crapholes. This takes the cake. Note that they bill your card in full a month out from stay....

The Melrose Mansion is a lovely place, situated in a perfect location for exploring the French Quarter on foot ... without being so close that the ruckus keeps you awake! The staff was so warm and friendly, and attentive to our every need. Would definitely go back ... hopefully soon.

374michael1956, Hopefully soon! We love knowing that the house and the location were suitable for you as so many have found there tends to be a perfect balance here between the new and the old, the loud and the quiet... We'll be looking forward to taking care of you again in the future.

Once again the hotel staff made our stay exceptional. From the manager, who checked in with us to ensure our stay was going well, to the front desk staff and housekeeping, we cannot ask for a more comfortable and relaxing hotel to stay at. This was our third opportunity to stay at Melrose Mansion and we'll continue to make this...

Gorgeous hotel, close to everything! I'm in love! VERY clean, comfortable and BEAUTIFUL! I will definitely stay here again and will happily refer Melrose Mansion to family and friends! We were transferred here mid-trip from The Chateau due to being VERY dissatisfied with our accommodations there. HORRIBLE at The Chateau! Thank you Melrose Mansion for saving our trip to NOLA!

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....

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!

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood 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.
