I stayed here with 3 of my friends. We stayed in Room 40 (the attic room). It was awesome! Great views, large room and comfortable beds. There was even an air mattress in one of the trunks. I think a tall person wouldn't like the room but we're all short so it worked for us. The staff was friendly and... More

I just returned from a few days in New Orleans with a large group, but the first night was just me and my boyfriend and we wanted a nice, romantic place in the FQ before the rest of our "crew" crash landed and the mayhem began. Lafitte's was perfect! A quaint B&B, in a great location - conveniently located directly... More

The Lafitte Guest House in New Orleans was a pleasant stay for my girlfriend and myself. We wanted to stay to a place close to the nightlife of Bourbon street, but not right in the middle of it. The room was nice, and the decor for the room was fitting with the rest of the house's style. Within walking distance... More

I love this Guesthouse! It is my absolute favorite place to stay. We have stayed there twice for our girls getaway and it was great both times. It is so unique and different from your average hotel. We have stayed in the attic room and one of the smaller double rooms overlooking the courtyard. The attic room is by far... More

I'm from New Orleans but wanted to stay in the Quarter on a weekend trip, so we picked this place b/c of the location. It's a decent enough, though older, hotel/BB. The main issue we had was car alarms on the street going off most of the night, but that's not the hotel's fault. The location is ideal - you're... More

We had a marvelous visit in the French Quarter, our stay went well. Despite the rainy weather, we were able to walk or catch a buggy ride where we wanted to go. We couldn't have asked for a better location or more helpful staff.

Stayed here for Jazziest with a large group. The staff was very accommodating, even when we were a little loud and rambunctious. I did even realize until we got there that this hotel is across the street from my favorite bar in new orleans, also called leafiness! Had a great time, we will be back!

Lafitte's Guest House is at a great location on the far end of Bourbon Street away from the major tourist commotion. The facing Bourbon have balconies with fantastic views of the Quarter. This hotel allows you to wander back in time and reminisce of the French Quarters colorful past.

I won't ever look elsewhere for all the reasons that make a good place great! I loved my room and the overall decore. The breakfast area was excellent, self serve than climb out the window to watch the morning traffic.
