Great location for this guest house, across the street from the oldest bar in New Orleans, the Blacksmith Shoppe. Which is both good and bad. We had room 2 which happens to be on the ground floor, which can be quite noisy until the bars close, but hey, we're in New Orleans, it's to be expected. The staff was great,... More

we love being in the quarter and on bourbon street -- but at the quieter end of the street (except for the occasional bit of rowdiness next doors at the lafitte bar. the guest house staff is unfailingly courteous, friendly and efficient, even with a moment to chat from time to time. the rooms are lovely, each one different, and...

I wanted to take my mom and mother in-law to New Orleans and have them enjoy the atmosphere without too much noise and discomfort but still engage in the fun and the spirit of the city. I avoided the noisy hotels and the crowded hotels in the center of off of Canal Street for the Lafite Guest House which is... More

We were disappointed in the breakfast part of the Bed & Breakfast. Otherwise we loved our stay and will be back again sometime. Our trip was marred by my wife being sick, but we still enjoyed our stay!

We loved our room facing the courtyard. The kitchen stocked with breakfast items and snacks kept our 2 teen age girls from ever getting too famished. They loved their loft room with their futon turned into double bed. The location on Bourbon Street was perfect. Right on the edge of night life but nearly into the quiet section of the... More

I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in the French Quarter - just love this Guest House and the special attention and dedication that the staff shows during our stay. We go back for the French Quarter Festival every year and the Lafitte Guest house far exceeds our expectations each time! It has the 'Bed & Breakfast Inn" feel but... More

The Lafitte guest house was perfect!!!! Right on Bourbon St but yet far enough away from the vibrant night life that our two little girls were able to get great nights sleep in what they called our "princess suite". The staff was always willing to help and the kitchen was stocked with snacks and waters/juices, perfect for the kids. The... More

We just spent a week in New Orleans . If the idea of staying on the French quarter wasn't exciting enough, we managed to luck into this quaint little guest house. The feeling you got was one of being part of the family. From the friendly conversation with staff over morning coffee to asking for their advice as to where... More

Not your average cookie cutter hotel. The room was beautiful and had a balcony overlooking the court yard. I was worried about noise, being on bourbon, but it was minimal. We really appreciated the kitchen/snack area as well. We came to New Orleans to experience the culture, music, food, and history and the Lafitte completely fit the bill. Thank you
