While attending a conference I opted to stay away from the large convention hotel(s). I was happy that I did. I stayed in room 22 and it had a balcony that overlooked the corner of Bourbon and St Phillip. The guest house if beautifully decorated with vintage New Orleans stuff as well as more modern art on display in the... More

We recently took a cruise out of New Orleans and stayed a few extra days at Lafitte Guest House. It was beautiful house and spotless. They have a nice common living room, a little kitchen where they keep drinks and snacks , in the morning they have coffee and muffins. We got a bottle of wine borrowed their glasses and... More

A great spot across from Lafitte blacksmith shoppe that is the end of bourbon street bars so it is quiet when you do finally want to sleep. The location also makes it a short walk to the other strip of bars we preferred on Frenchman street. Our room #3 was on the ground floor with a common courtyard that we... More

The hotel is still nice, but not as pristine as the previous owners kept it several years ago. We missed the bed and breakfast that it used to be, but access to the kitchen and snacks was nice. Also, a mistake had been made on our reservation, but it was impossible for us to know because the confirmation email we... More

We were very pleased! An amazing historical guest house right on Bourbon Street. It was just close enough to be within walking distance of all the great food & sites, but far enough to not be in the middle of the madness. We had a room overlooking the courtyard, #34. It was on the small side, but was fine for... More

Stayed in one of the courtyard rooms and it was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The location is ideal on the quiet end of Bourbon...a close walk to anywhere in the Quarter, Frenchmen St. or the streetcars on Canal. There was not one person on the staff that wasn't friendly and helpful. I don't remember everyone's names but Charlie and Renee... More

We had a great stay in room 32, the street noise was not an issue for us. The room was very clean and comfortable, bed was great and linens were decent. The staff was very friendly and extremely accommodating. They were able to have our room ready for us early when we called ahead and told them of our arrival.... More

We will definitely stay at Lafitte guest house again! The room was great and the staff was amazing. The location is perfect. Right on Bourbon st but not in the middle of the craziness. You can walk anywhere from here so no need for a car

I thought this was such a charming place to stay. Lafitte Guest House is also in a fantastic location to anywhere you want to go in the French Quarter. The court yard is lovely and our room on the main floor led out right to it. I will definitely stay here again when I am in NOLA!

Maybe because I came in Nov, the room was actually cool. I wanted to stay in French Quarters in a place with some Orleans flavor not a commercial hotel. Lafitte met it all. Location was great, very walkable and I did not rent a car so did not have to pay for parking (which can add up). Did it on... More
