A Touch of Historic New Orleans
This charming Greek Revival-turned-Italianate building has seen it all — literally! The Lanaux Mansion’s history goes back to 1879, when it was originally built after the Civil War by a wealthy local attorney.
The Lanaux Mansion formally became a bed and breakfast in the early 1990s and has welcomed thousands of guests ever since. If these walls could talk, we’re sure they would have a lot of interesting stories, especially since the mansion hosted plenty of famous movie stars, historical guests, and even a ghost or two.
Besides being a cozy bed and breakfast in historic New Orleans, the Lanaux Mansion has been the setting of hit films like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Cat People.
Of course, you’ll feel like a celebrity yourself from the moment you step onto the property. The innkeeper will make you feel at home with their southern charm and hospitality!
The Lanaux Mansion has been beautifully preserved from top to bottom while making sure that guests enjoy their stay with comfort and convenience. As owner Beth notes, “Mom and I shared the same vision for the Lanaux: To keep its […] historic details intact while gracefully weaving in modern comforts.”
The New Orleans bed and breakfast offers a choice of seven rooms and suites, including a private cottage, two- and three-bedroom suites, and even a balcony suite.
Travelers who are visiting New Orleans with family or friends can book the Grand Lanaux package and rent out the entire mansion! That’s right: take advantage of this amazing offer and you can have the Lanaux Mansion for you and 11 other friends. The package includes all five bedrooms, four baths, two balconies, and even a garden courtyard to relax.
Staying at the Lanaux Mansion feels like a home away from home, especially with all of the fantastic amenities on offer.

The mansion also includes 500-thread count linens, luxurious bath products, and even a complimentary washer and dryer available to guests in need of a fresh set of clothes.
