This place was awesome. Rooms were very nice and well kept. I like to old style hotel rooms. Each room has it's own theme. The art gallery was beautiful. It was in walking distance to the French Quarter. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in New Orleans.

My husband and I decided to get away for a few days this month and decided to hit NOLA for a couple days. We literally hopped on a plane and grabbed a cab to Bourbon, without any idea of where we were going to stay. With suitcases in tow, we rolled into Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop (not affiliated) across the street... More

I had always wanted to visit New Orleans and stay at a romantic bed and breakfast, and Lafitte Guest House perfectly fulfilled that wish. The location is ideal, at the quiet end of Bourbon (didn't hear any noise at all from the street in my Courtyard room) but just a minute from all of the action. The staff is super... More

I must apologize, as this review is a bit late, but I had to let management know how awesome they made my wedding rehearsal and stay before my big day. As soon as my husband and I saw the picturesque courtyard at Lafitte's we knew it was the perfect spot for our wedding rehearsal in early Nov 2013. We had... More

We stayed here over the weekend Saturday-Monday! Everyone here was VERY friendly and helpful. If you want to stay on Bourbon Street then this place is where you want to stay! No, it's not your Big Chain hotels but it's Clean and Private and not far from the action. We arrived at 10am on Saturday and they let us park... More

This was an excellent choice to stay at. It is at the far end of Bourbon Street, so it was quiet most nights. Friday night we heard a little noise from the bar across the street, but it was minimal. Our rooms were very nice and always clean. The beds and pillows were so comfortable, that I wish I could... More

I've stayed here about 2-3 times a year over the past few years. This is not to be expected as a luxury hotel. It is an old converted mansion on Bourbon St. I usually choose this place because when I'm visiting it is during an event, so room rates in New Orleans and around the French Quarter are really high...

Good bed, quiet, good shower, and very clean. NOLA ( French Quarter) was sold out due to a concert, and ours being a last minute booking. The only room they had was down the street from their B&B. It fits the bill for a good room. It wouldn't be my first choice to stay again, the hotel looked a better... More

I did my research before staying here and I am glad I did. It was perfect. Don't let Bourbon Street scare you, this hotel is on the residential end of Bourbon St. The Guest house was built in 1849, I believe. It has that period elegance. Walking through the mansion takes you back in time. I live in an house... More
