We had room 34 beautiful. We could step out on the balcony at any time day or night for an awesome view of Bourbon & the city skyline. Awesome breakfast area fully stocked. The people that work there are friendly, helpful & a fun group. Will stay there again.

The hotel had a great feel as soon as I entered. There was a beautiful art room display with high ceilings and there was also art throughout the hotel. I stayed in room 32 with a balcony. Romantic room with a great view. Quite room. Great service. The hotel was in a excellent location and everything was pretty much walking... More

This was really a great place to stay and did not disappoint! The staff was so nice and pleasant. Billy was especially helpful. He set up a tour for me, my husband and two friends. We told him what we wanted to do and he had it scheduled in a matter of minutes. We stayed in Room 22 which was... More

Lafitte Guest House did not disappoint!!! Beautifully restored mansion, serving a hot & continental breakfast, snacks available 24/7. Located on the "quiet" end of Bourbon St. across from Lafitte Blacksmith Bar. If you don't have a balcony room there are several shared spaces where can enjoy a cocktail and watch the action from above. Rene was so helpful and delightful... More

This place is great. The only draw back to me is that my wife walks with a cane and it was a little to far down on Bourbon Street. It is such a quitesential NOLA hotel. Built in 1849 it has so much old New Orleans charm. The main downstairs parlor is like a mesuseum. Beautiful art work and old... More

We stayed in room 31. The room was beautiful. It's a 2 room suite. The bed in the first room is huge! The second room is small but suited our needs fine. My mother has been diagnosed with cancer and is terminal. She really wanted to come back to New Orleans one more time. Her mobility is not great, but... More

This is my third visit to this property. During my second visit, renovations were being made to the property, and I was really looking forward to seeing the progress that had been made.

This is still no excuse, but if you were to give us another chance to accommodate you and to re-earn your business it would be appreciated and not wasted.
