Beautiful old mansion in great location with wonderfully attentive staff. Walking distance to river, Cafe Du Monde, French Quarter. Modern rooms recently renovated and really comfortable bed. Loved this place!

Recently in NOLA for business meeting. Conference hotel was expensive and had stayed there before. Looked around for another option using location--proximity to downtown and French Quarter, ease of access-- tram line, quick driving, quiet, and cost effectiveness as criteria. Found the Melrose and sister properties. Booked Melrose and was completely satisfied. Arrived very late. Met by wonderful young person...

Loved our stay at the Melrose Mansion. We just returned from our visit to New Orleans and thanks to Trip Advisor reviews found this perfect little gem.

Stayed at the Melrose Mansion for Christmas. The location was perfect for us! It is in a quiet residential neighborhood. Walking distance (about 8-10 minutes) to the French Quarter and Frenchman's Street, but far enough away from that you aren't affected by the craziness of Bourbon Street. We stayed, not in the mansion itself, but in a house a couple...

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.
