Claiborne Mansion Review
One of the best places to stay in Faubourg Marigny, the Claiborne 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.
This historic inn has just seven suites, with high ceilings, canopy or four-poster beds, polished hardwood floors, and rich fabrics. The handsome 1859 mansion is a quiet escape outside the French Quarter, overlooking Washington Square Park. A lush, dramatically lighted rear courtyard and pool add to the tranquil, romantic atmosphere.
