New Orleans-1 The Melrose Mansion
Hi everyone, I wanted to share pics of my recent vacation in New Orleans and when I got home and realized how many I had taken I decided I better split the post up in a few parts. We did so many things, so I wanted to start by showing you the place we stayed for 6 days, The Melrose Mansion on Esplanade Avenue in the French Quarter,
We climbed the staircase to our suite and unlocked the door...
OH my I said....oh my
These are the plantation shutters that overlook pool and main house
this is back door that has small balcony I walked out here many an evening to stare at the moon and the beautiful architecture I wondered who must have stood here seeing the same view before over 120 years ago.....
of course the decor is more modern than would have been at that time I loved the mix of classic details with modern furniture
Ok I have traveled a little in my time but this is the first time that the room had an expresso machine on a nine foot coffee bar leading to a balcony giving you an awesome place to plug in cameras, phones, laptops there was a fridge with water and ........pralines set out by the expresso machine....really.....oh my I said
And another Oh my moment when entering bathroom Melvin opened door first and he said "Sherry you have to come look at this" He was impressed!
My Hubby had his 51st Birthday at New Orleans!
I hope you follow me in the next few posts as we travel the French Quarter, the Garden district, the cemeteries, the Plantations.......Musuems and beautiful Churches.....(we did enjoy the food and a drink or two here and there....so who is counting when you are walking right??)
