My daughter got married in NOLA on June 13. I reserved all the rooms but 1-2 for family coming in from Cleveland. I started working with Billy and Christine in January to plan the wedding. Billy was my lifeline. We planned the wedding on the courtyard, he helped me with contacts for the rehearsal dinner party, also in the courtyard,... More

I really enjoyed Lafitte guest house. My boyfriend and I came there at the end of June and had a great time. The location is perfect, right on bourbon street but on the quieter side of the street so you can walk everywhere but also get a good night's sleep. Our room had a balcony with great views of the...

We brought friends from up north and wanted to show them true New Orleans style. The service was friendly, the a/c cold - which is saying something in the south during the summer! It was a bit loud, but hey - you are on Bourbon St! You are also in an old home with balconies, courtyard access -- It's no... More

My wife and myself stayed at Lafitte Guest House for our honeymoon. We stayed 3 nights and did not want to go home. The room was great, the bed was unbelievably comfortable (you just sank right down in it), and the front staff and housekeeping were incredibly great. From the moment we checked in Billy was so incredibly helpful at... More

Everyone was helpful. Housekeeping staff was extremely nice. Great location, on Bourbon Street. It's at the end of all the Bourbon Street craziness, so it's a good location either way. If you have kids and want to avoid Bourbon Street, you can walk one block up to Royal and enjoy the French Quarter from there. It is right next to... More

To be fair, we did have a groupon to stay. Note to self: pay for the upgrade! Our room was "courtyard view" with a huge tree in front of our door with a pink thong hanging from the branches! We could hardly fit our luggage through the doors, ok, I get it. 1849, we had two queen beds that took... More

I apologize your stay was less than expected. About the pink thong its stuck in our 80 foot tree along with beads from Mardi Gras time, if you look all over the french quarter you see beads and other things hanging from balconies and trees, that's just the New Orleans style so to say. And we do have about 10... More

The front staff just seemed to just be content with just sitting behind the desk they did not show a lot of get up and go attitude. The atmosphere was great that was the only down point of the trip. I would return for the location of being on bourbon street but would take a much friendlier staff for the... More

We really enjoyed our stay... We only had a little problem upon arrival, our reservations had been cancelled for some reason without me being notified. They were cancelled on May 2, 2014.. The receptionist did her best & was able to get us a room... Very nice and pleasant employees!!!!!! We will consider staying at the guest house again if... More

This is THE PLACE to stay in the French Quarter. I enjoyed looking at the art gallery more carefully this time. We always love to stay here because of the uniqueness of the rooms. Each one is a little different. There is an enclosed courtyard where you can hang out if you want a break from the party scene.

Being on Bourbon street, this hotel luckily is at the quieter end! But, being next to Lafitte's Blacksmith shop (a bar), it is pretty loud on Saturday night! Sunday night was better, but if you are staying in room 2, don't expect to sleep much! Overall the Lafitte Guest House is very charming and comfortable and at the east end,... More

I apologize about you not getting much sleep, we are in the quitter part of Bourbon unfortunately sometimes the Lafitte Blacksmith shop can get a little loud when you are in room 2, I hope you will stay again and experience a different room. Thank you, Christina Claunch General Manager More
