After three days and two nights in New Orleans I saw no better place we could have stayed. Room 22 has a great private balcony with a view of bourbon and Lafittes Black Smith Shop (oldest and popular bar in New Orleans.) Great for people watching. Neat little kitchen with balcony and tons of snacks, soda and good breakfast.

It was our first trip to NOLA and I have to say the Lafitte Guest House was one of the major highlights! The staff are absolutely amazing. Rene was fabulous and shared lots of stories about the guest house and the area. We stayed in Garden Room 24 and it was the best sleep ever!! The bed was really comfortable... More

I could not have asked for a better experience while in New Orleans. The room was absolutely beautiful and the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. It was just walking distance from all the crazy fun, but we enjoyed sitting on our own private balcony and watching the world go by. I would highly recommend this to any couple for... More

This was our first time in New Orleans so we were just checking out the rates of the hotels on Bourbon St. An employee named Billy was very friendly and polite beyond our expectations. He quoted us a good rate and showed us a few rooms. He was so great about talking the place up and showing us the beautiful... More

This is the place to stay in the French Quarter! Located on Bourbon St. across the street from the famous Lafitte's Blacksmith Bar, the oldest building in the French Quarter. A short walk to anywhere in the French Quarter, i.e. French Market, Jackson Square, Riverwalk and tons of restaurant with the best food in the world surrounding you. Lafitte Guest... More

The rooms were very clean. The amenities were top notch. The service is spectacular from the front desk to the cleaning staff. Beautiful balcony views and very comfortable beds. All the southern charm you'd expect and the comforts you normally wouldn't. From free bottled water to freshly prepared real (not continental) breakfast including bacon, eggs biscuits, fruits and pastries. Close... More

The evening desk clerk Renee, was also really helpful and also FUN. the... More

The staff at the guest house was friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. They were also available all day and night if we had any questions. The room was spacious and clean and authentic New Orleans. It is also right across from the Lafitte Blacksmith Shop where you can get the best hurricanes in NOLA. The hotel is... More

This place was great! Renee at the desk as a pure joy and every bit of New Orleans hospitality that you could ask for. The room was spacious, modern with some old charm. Close to all of the fun without being right in the middle of all the noise. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
