This is my second time staying at the LaFitte Guest house in a two year span for a girls weekend with friends in New Orleans. As always, this hotel didn't disappoint. It captures the charm and essence of New Orleans and is located in an ideal spot on bourbon. Close enough to walk to all the action but far away... More

Stayed July 8-15 2015 in room 22. Great room size with 2 generous size closets and an armoire. Sliding window to private balcony that has a table and 2 chairs was really cool. Air conditioning was good since it was scorching that week. Fridge in room was extra cold. The bed was super comfortable. Balcony faces Lafitte Blacksmith Bar but... More

Well, let's start with the positive.....this location is great. It's just at one end of the really busy section of Bourbon Street. Right across the street is Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop (Great Hurricanes but VERY strong). The house is pretty and our room was just fine. The linens were nice, the mattress comfortable. The desk employees were helpful in recommending restaurants... More

The rooms are spacious and the staff friendly. The location can not be beat for being close to everything in the French Quarter, yet out of the loud crazy noise zone. Free continental breakfast. There are both private and community balconies. The James and Doziers June July 22 and 23rd

The rooms are gorgeous, it was full of art and the room has a very homey, calm feel to it. The patio area seemed nice to sit and just relax. Also I love all of the art work everywhere, it is in the hallways, in the rooms and downstairs area. The location is very convenient to walk down to bourbon... More

My husband and I don't plan on staying there again nor recommend anyone else stay there either. However we do have the following funny memories of our stay there: 1. The gentleman at the front desk was ever so kind but a bit odd as if hospitality isn't really his forte. 2. As we walked thru the hallway & attempted... More
