Magnolia Mansion

2127 Prytania St.
New Orleans , LA , United States
(504) 412-9500

Completed in 1858, Magnolia Mansion is an ideal choice for travelers who want a taste of New Orleans' romantic side. This Greek Revival mansion exudes the opulence of a bygone era, from the eleven Corinthian columns and double-galleried balcony to the grand hallway, decorated in royal red and featuring statues of Aphrodite and Eros. Each guest room sports an elaborate theme, such as the Gone With the Wind suite or the Bordello Moulin Rouge room. Adding to the romantic allure of the inn: over the years, numerous guests have reported run-ins with the resident spirits, and several publications have noted Magnolia Mansion's proclivity for ghostly encounters.
