Honeymoon in New Orleans
Continued (page 3 of 3)
Book a stay in one of these three hotels: Melrose Mansion is the ultimate romantic inn on Esplanade at the edge of the Quarter (and walking distance to the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood, with some of the city's best music clubs). The Donecio suite, with a private balcony and soaking tub, is truly dreamy (doubles from $225; melrosegroup.com/melrosemansion). Soniat House, one of the city's most charming historic hotels, is stuffed with antiques, and many of its rooms have balconies (doubles from $240; soniathouse.com). International House, the hip hotel owned by native son Sean Cummings, was recently given a makeover by L.M. Pagano, designer to Johnny Depp and Nicolas Cage (doubles from $119; ihhotel.com).
