Loved the location way down Bourbon - great proximity to Jackson Square, Frenchman, and City Park. We'll pick a different room next time (we were on the first floor of the mansion, lots of foot traffic), but top notch place. Cool little kitchen with quick bites of food/coffee and access to balcony seating/view.

My son and I stayed at Lafittes last weekend. The location at the far end of Bourbon Street is great. The price is very good and our room was spacious. My only knock was the gentleman behind the desk ( George ) was extremely apathetic. The other staff was very helpful.

Will try to stay here everytime I'm in New Orleans. Clean rooms, balconies over Bourbon Street, walking distance to anything in the French Quarter. Definitely a jewel of a place to stay and very affordable as well.

I wanted to give Lafitte 5 stars. So charming, but a few reasons that I marked it down a couple stars. First, the positive. Quaint, adorable, nostalgic with an awesome staff. Had a private balcony (supposed to be private) overlooking Bourbon Street. You don't need to drive anywhere. Everything is within walking distance. Negatives. You may or may not be... More

Extremely disappointed that I received a call after carefully choosing Lafitte Guest House and booking it to be told that the online rate was actually incorrect and the rate was really $130 more per night (we were planning to stay during a special event, and the hotel's website acknowledged this). This is enough to make the trip possibly not financially... More

This is a great place to stay. Great value and our room had a balcony that was perfect for morning and afternoon rests or drinks! Ideal location near everything and all the action. Will definitely stay here again

figured we'd give this a try being it was reasonably priced and on bourbon, but be aware its the far end of bourbon where nothing is happening other than the blacksmith bar right downstairs where I conveniently was up and down from my balcony for an abita on draft within about 4 minutes! but beware to noisy schoolbuses coming by,...

Our group of six stayed in three rooms at this hotel over the Memorial Day weekend. We all loved it. Very helpful employees, nice accommodations, and great location. One room had a big balcony that we used several times and we also sat in the courtyard. Never needed our vehicle, but it only took a few minutes for them to... More

Location was perfect. Right on Bourbon Street but just a skip away from all the mayhem. Within walking distance to everything in the French Quarter and trolley systems. The establishment was very clean and quaint. Lovely artwork/decor throughout the mansion as well as the rooms. Private courtyard/garden as well as balcony access. Provided breakfast, champagne in the evenings and WIFI.... More
