Beautiful hotel!!! Great staff. The breakfast wasn’t the best but everything else was wonderful. I wouldn’t mind staying here again if the price is right.

Excellent staff

The staff at Melrose went above and beyond to help me plan a surprise bday weekend for my boyfriend. Every detail was perfect from the custom cake request to the rose petals and champagne. So happy we stayed there. It was a perfect weekend!

Nice place within reasonable distance.

Pros: Modern look, great kitchen for a couple staying around 5 nights and it's location
Cons: Shower heating up higher, and quicker.
Location: Cosimo's is a great bar with very good food. The Horn makes an amazing breakfast while The Ruby Slipper is equally good. Just walk, you'll find a lot.
Very much enjoyed the stay here. The suite was clean and modern. The fridge, freezer, and the rest of the kitchen worked wonderfully. Bathroom was a nice size with a rainfall-head shower. I prefer a scalding hot shower which was not attainable, but the shower did pump out hot water, I am just picky. The extra few degrees that were missing did not detract from the stay in any way, shape, or form. The private balcony and location to restaurants, bars, and attractions was perfect for us, as we wanted to walk everywhere.

Quiet with a short walk to all of the action

Pros: Amazing staff, Short walk to Bourbon Street
Cons: Pinpoint source of slight odor in Freret Room
Location: Walk to all of the action on and near Bourbon Street. Eat at Oceana, Brennan's, Cornet, and get beignets and coffee at Cafe Du Monde.
I booked this hotel to experience the French Quarter for a few days before attending a conference being held at the Convention Center. What an excellent decision! Located on Esplanade just a few blocks from Bourbon St, this mansion has super friendly and professional staff, afternoon wine and cheese, a good sized outdoor pool, and a fabulous Nola feel. We stayed in the Freret room which was lovely. The only thing slightly negative I can must up about this experience was that the room had a slight odor to it that we could not pinpoint to anything in the room in particular (mattress, bedding, rug, etc.). It wasn't overpowering and did not disrupt our stay. The room itself was cleaned well. The next time I travel to the French Quarter, I will definitely being staying at the Melrose Mansion again!

Since had never been to NOLA, we were unsure about location, parking, etc. Melrose Mansion turned out to be a perfect place for us! It was clean, comfortable and close to everything. The staff is super helpful and friendly, and their services superb.

Beautiful B&B close to the French Quarter

The Melrose Mansion is absolutely beautiful with all of the wonderful modern amenities yet the character, history and charm of historic New Orleans homes. The staff are among the friendliest and most accommodating my husband and I have had the pleasure to meet! We have found our hideaway in the city!
