WELCOME TO THE MELROSE MANSION
Perfectly situated on the edge of the French Quarter along beautiful Esplanade Avenue, the luxury boutique Melrose Mansion recalls what it might have been like to live in grand antebellum fashion in this historic Creole neighborhood called the Faubourg Marigny. If you’re in New Orleans seeking the finest amenities, superb hospitality, and personalized attention in ultimate comfort, the Melrose Mansion is the ideal choice.
Melrose Mansion is a sturdy and elegant Second Empire Victorian mansion which was designed by esteemed New Orleans architect James A. Freret. The building was completed in 1885. Originally designed as a single-family home, the mansion first housed the family of a prosperous commissions merchant by the name of George Lanaux. It is believed that the Lanaux family inhabited the house for several years until it was sold in the early 1900s to another family. The details of the second family to own the house are unclear.
