Melrose Mansion

A Historic Hotel Steps From the French Quarter

Melrose Mansion provides an intimate bed-and-breakfast experience just steps from the French Quarter of New Orleans. Perfectly situated on the edge of the Vieux Carré, along beautiful Esplanade Avenue, the hotel puts you close enough to the area’s notorious bars and jazz joints, while maintaining a peacefully secluded ambience. 

Located in the historic Faubourg Marigny neighborhood, the charming antebellum-era mansion holds 21 guest rooms and suites, each with its own unique history and design. The property’s boutique nature means you’ll get a real taste of Southern hospitality, with personalized service and wonderful amenities. You can truly make yourself at home here, whether relaxing with a cocktail, cooling off in the pool, or making use of the 24-hour fitness center.

When you’re not lounging about the property, you’ll be exploring the magical city of New Orleans. Stroll a few blocks toward the Mississippi River to visit the French Market, Café du Monde, and Jackson Square, all less than 15 minutes away on foot. At night, sample the city’s best dining, nightlife, and live music along iconic Bourbon Street and nearby Frenchmen Street.

On the eastern edge of the French Quarter, the newly renovated Melrose Mansion recalls what it might have been like to live in grand antebellum fashion in this historic Creole neighborhood along Esplanade Avenue.

The Melrose Mansion offers nine modern, stylish suites in the mansion itself and five more in the Napoleon House, located behind the main building. Each suite showcases white shuttered windows, ebony-stained hardwood floors, and cathedral ceilings. You'll enjoy a king or queen-size bed and an array of modern luxuries, including an LCD flat-screen television, 350-thread-count linens, high-speed wireless Internet, an all-marble bathroom, and luxury bath amenities.

The 919 Executive Suite Building was added to the Mansion's property in recent years and boasts our apartment-style luxury suites, comprised of four Residential Executive One Bedroom Suites and three Residential Studio Suites.
