We originally booked here because of the price and the location, but I cannot say enough about the awesome staff! From the time we booked the reservation until the end, every person we talked to were very friendly, and helpful. Although hurricane/winter storm mageddon (by the name of Jonas) decided to reek havoc on our New Orleans trip, Adam was... More

This place is the absolute best, from the house itself to the staff! I can not say enough wonderful things about the staff. George and Milton both rocked!! So helpful and inviting. Every staff member we came across made us feel at home. I honestly will try to stay here every time I visit the city, it felt like home.... More

This place has the feel of a small French boutique hotel. Its what every couple dreams of. Amazing hospitality combined with elegance and comfort. From start to finish, we were pampered and felt right at home.

Every encounter with Lafitte Guest House staff was friendly, courteous and professional - from the reservation process throughout our entire stay. They offered advice, made sure we knew our way around the property (including the kitchen for coffee and breakfast), and arranged our early morning taxi to the airport. This property is fun, but its real strength is location. It... More

A friend of ours recommended we stay at the Lafitte Guest House and we are so glad he did. The house is located on the cleaner, quieter section of Bourbon Street. Wandering around the house is like strolling through an art gallery, and the house itself is gorgeous too - with many intricate details to discover and enjoy. The location... More

The guest house did not disappoint. After reading some aged reviews, I was a little concerned about where we would be staying. The more recent reviews can be relied upon. The house was built in the mid 1800s so you need to allow for the love and time that has been put into the house. The result is an eclectic... More

The staff is wonderful and very helpful. The room is small but charming. The bathroom needs a little help-super small and not user friendly.It is far enough away from Bourbon Street to be quiet, but close enough to get everywhere. A great place to stay on Bourbon Street!

Queen Valerie, Thank you so much for taking the time to write. We do so appreciate it. One should remember though that these building didn't have bathrooms in them when built. Could account for your issues with the bathroom. It sounds as though you had a nice time though and that pleases us to no end. More

I stayed in room 40 with a couple of friends. Its a large room with two queen beds. It has windows and a great view of the city of New Orleans. The breakfast was very good, wine on the weekend, art all over, comfortable beds, great staff. We had a great stay and can't wait to visit again next year... More

I had the opportunity to stay at the Lafitte guesthouse with my sister and several of her friends for a bachelorette party. This is a wonderful place to stay and the staff is great! Rooms are unique and those with balcony have exceptional views.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
