When I booked my trip to New Orleans I wanted to explore the beauty in the city and architecture. Staying at the Melrose Mansion is like stepping back in time when you walk through the front door. A completely restored 200 year old mansion with modern amenities. Every angle took my breath away. The staff was also amazing in their...

We stayed here for our first trip to New Orleans. It was the perfect location, just on the edge of the French Quarter but easily walking distance into the quarter and to all the sights. It's a short walk to Frenchmen Street to hear the live jazz and to great restaurants. The mansion was beautiful and staff were very friendly...

My daughter got married in NOLA and this was our main hotel. Having stayed in many different hotels in NOLA over the years, I know what the options are there. Melrose Mansion is a crazy mix of Deep South charm and good service. We were allowed to have several cocktail parties in the main lobby and bring our own booze...

My first visit to NOLA, and I don't think I could have chosen a better location for our accommodations. The Melrose Mansion is absolutely beautiful, and well kept. A very charming bed and breakfast with everything you need. They did a good job fusing modern without compromising the original details of the home too much. We had a great concierge...

Located on the edge of the French Quarter with en walking distance to all the Mardi Gras event's, but far enough you can sleep. We were in Napoleon 5 a Quant room in the very back with its own patio. Wonderful decor and friendly staff made our visit unforgettable.

We stayed at Melrose Mansion for 4 nights in February 2015. When we arrived we were shown to our room in the Napoleon House.

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.
