Fodor's Expert Review Melrose Mansion

937 Esplanade Ave., New Orleans, Louisiana, 70116, USA

Just steps from the French Quarter, this renovated Victorian mansion turns on the grandeur with antique furnishings, hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings, and large chandeliers—and lots of luxurious, modern conveniences. In the rooms are king or queen beds dressed in fine linens, along with modern amenities that include Wi-Fi, mini-refrigerators, flat-screen TVs, and iPhone docking stations. Baths are marbled and sumptuous; three rooms have Jacuzzi tubs, and one has a private patio. Cocktails are served each evening in the formal drawing room. Complimentary wine and cheese are served each evening in the parlor.
