The Melrose Mansion deceives guests with a grand Victorian façade encasing a modern interior. The historic skeleton is maintained with cathedral ceilings, carved moldings and large French windows, but the stark white walls are decorated with bold abstract art and pops of neon. Consisting of the original 1884 mansion and carriage house, the property has fourteen guest rooms, a wine cellar, heated pool and 24-hour fitness center.

Accommodations are furnished with mahogany four-poster beds, antique dressers, gauzy lace curtains and marble baths. Complementing the traditional décor are contemporary amenities like free Wi-Fi and iHome alarm clocks; some rooms also have Jacuzzi tubs and wrought iron balconies.

Mornings at Melrose Mansion begin with the aroma of fresh coffee and a complimentary continental breakfast that can be enjoyed poolside, on the porch or in the comfort of private guest rooms. Each evening, guests are treated to a white-gloved service wine hour paired with hors d’ouevres in the formal drawing room.

In residential Faubourg Marigny on Esplanade Avenue adjacent to the French Quarter, the bed-and-breakfast is within walking distance of the famed neighborhood’s restaurants, shopping and entertainment.
