We loved everything about this place! -Perfect location.....quiet end of the Quarter but walking distance to everything -Very hospitable staff -Excellent kitchen facilities for breakfast...plus a balcony overlooking Bourbon street -Best shower I've had in a hotel for a while! I didn't have high expectations as it's an old house -Oozes charm....a must versus staying in a generic boring hotel... 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

I really have to commend the manager of this hotel, I do know problems come up in a very old building....the test is how the manager deals with it. She did a great job! We had no heat in our booked room, and I was ready to check out. They called everyone they could think of to fix it, and... 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. Unfortunately, the experience was disappointing. We booked a room overlooking the garden. This was a BIG mistake. There was no heat! We were told that a prior... More

This was our first trip to NOLA and I have to say the Lafitte Guest House was one of the major highlights for our 14th wedding Anniversary! The staff are absolutely amazing. Rene was fabulous, greater with a smile and always there to answer questions. Every morning we got greated by Miss Eve who was always busy keeping all rooms... More

We stayed at the Lafitte Guest House, four nights in late December in Room 24. Renee and the rest of the staff are wonderful. The kitchen is stocked well with snacks. This is an older building so with that comes some quirks. Room 24 has a very comfortable bed but it is high for short people. If you are used... More

I had the opportunity to stay at The Laffutte Guest House November 18-19th for my birthday this year. Me and my family stayed in room 31. The place is beautiful! We had our own private balcony over looking Bourbon Street. Clean and comfortable! The staff was amazing! We absolutly loved Billy the front desk clerk. The breakfast at the guest... More

You can't beat the location for the price. Plus they allow dogs which is the main reason we stayed there. There is a 25.00 pet deposit per day. The historical rooms are charming but it is a very old building. You can sometimes hear your neighbors I'm the next room or walking outside your room. Remember you are staying in... More

Great location in the Historic French Quarter located on Bourbon Street but on the outside of partying. Conveniently located to all attractions this quaint guest house offered a vacation dream come true. From the friendly and efficient staff, especially Renee to the awesome hot breakfast and open kitchen the Lafitte Guest House offers all the amenities of being on vacation... More
