One of the most beautiful places to stay in Faubourg Marigny, the Claiborne Mansion has enormous rooms with high ceilings, canopy beds, polished hardwood floors, and rich fabrics. The handsome 1859 mansion is on the fringe of the French Quarter and overlooks Washington Square Park. Although it's spacious and elegant, the charming house still feels intimate, with a lush, dramatically lighted rear courtyard and pool. Celebrities regularly book it for the privacy, but families appreciate its suites with separate bedrooms. Think of the mansion as an authentic mid-19th-century house—with cable and air-conditioning.

Once the door closes, there is an almost indescribable feeling of peace, serenity and comfort. It's the perfect place to rejuvinate between adventures in New Orleans. The Claiborne Mansion is old and gracious and elegant - a perfect place to stay in a gracious and elegant city.
