Kleineres Hotel am Rande des french quarter

Posted Dec 10, 2014
Pros: Schickes Design, geschmackvoll eingerichtet.
Cons: Frühstücksbuffet wurde nur sporadisch wieder aufgefüllt; Dusche lief regelmäßig aus wg. baulicher Mängel; Hygiene im Bad nicht optimal.
Location: Hotel am Rand des french quarter; tolle Jazzclubs 10 Minuten fußläufig entfernt.
Insgesamt empfehlenswert wegen guter Lage und schicker Ausstattung. Leider Abstriche bei Zimmerreinigung und Frühstück, dafür aber netter Abendsnack gratis (Käse und Wein). Zimmer zur Seitenstraße sehr laut, viel Verkehr auch nachts.

Great long romantic birthday weekend!

Posted Dec 4, 2014
Cons: One day after cleaning, the maid did not properly lock the door and so it was unlocked. We mentioned it, the staff promptly apologized. No harm...
Location: Frenchman Street is only 4 blocks up on Esplanade and actually closer and better than Bourbon street. Lil Dizzy's restaurant had THE best brunch!
We LOVED LOVED LOVED staying here, came for my birthday weekend. Hotel/mansion is absolutely beautiful and elegant. Great neighborhood, close to everything; Frenchman St., Bourbon St., Canal Street - all walkable. Hotel staff helpful without being overbearing. Small fridge for water, drinks, etc. Small room, but again, elegant. Coffee, Cucumber & mint water, apples always available. Wine and Cheese hour (we missed this, but nice it was offered). Next time we are in New Orleans, we will definitely staff at Melrose. THANK YOU!

Good location, but...

Posted Nov 24, 2014
Pros: The location, just on the border of the French Quarter
Cons: Patch and paint the walls! And use an insecticide that doesn't smell so strong.
From the outside, this place is lovely. However. the hallways and even the elevator smelled strongly of insecticide. It was very noticeable every time we entered and left our room--so they must spray all the time. Our room (studio with kitchen) was spacious, and would have been great except that there were huge patches on the walls where the plaster and paint were blistered and peeling! They assured us that "it wasn't mold"...but how difficult is it to simply scrape, patch and re-paint? The patches were in the living room/kitchen area as well as the bedroom. Very unsightly. The in-room coffee maker was stocked only with decaf coffee--they said they were out of regular. Since our room was in another building (two buildings away from the breakfast area) they offered to bring a carafe of coffee up to our room in the morning. Which would have been great, except it came 30 minutes later than promised, so we ended up going down to the breakfast room to get coffee or we would have been late to our meetings.

Beautiful small hotel on the edge of the action

Posted Nov 21, 2014
We loved the melrose mansion. The room was large and the marble bathroom was beautiful. Staff were very kind, even coming outside to greet us and direct us in at 3:30am and gave good directions and recommendations for the French quarter. The neighborhood was quiet at night but still within walking distance of all the French quarter activities and Frenchman street. Would definitely stay again.

Elegant Manor in the French Quarter

Posted Nov 11, 2014
Pros: the character of the rooms and quality of service
Location: Frenchman Street, French Market, Bourbon Street
Amazing hotel right at the edge of the French Quarter. Makes you feel like you are experiencing a truly authentic old world New Orleans experience. The staff is very friendly and knowledgable and provided personal concierge service that went above and beyond. Easy walk into the French Quarter and to Frenchman Street in Marginy. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Cozy southern style home

Posted Nov 6, 2014
As soon as you step to the Melrose Mansion, you will feel the sense of southern style hospitality of the staff and comfort of the place already. The place is cozy and chic.
