Fodor's Review

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.

Peaceful retreat

At the end of a long day of great music, excellent food, and stimulating conversation, the Claiborne Mansion is a welcome retreat. 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.

Great Bargain

We had a 2-room suite--each room was about 20 by 20 with 18 foot ceilings. Owner was low-key and helpful. Not far from rough neighborhoods, so you have to be careful of your path at night, but an easy walk to the quarter, and several great bars within two blocks.

Great Neighborhood!

The Claiborne Mansion is in the Fauborg Maringy, a wonderful place to stay. Just a short walk from the French Quarter, it is also 2 minutes from 4 clubs on Frenchman Street. Although the owner is a little brusque, it's a great place to stay.
