I have visited this property for the last thirty years and I still go back. I love the French Quarters, New Orleans and Lafitte Guest House, I also love Bourbon St. I will spend Christmas in New Orleans this year and I will be spending it at Lafittes . I do not know a soul in New Orleans but I... More

My wife and I spent a romantic weekend at Lafitte Guest House. The service staff is so friendly and helpful, I even left my cell phone on a table outside on the porch, my wife called, they quickly found my phone and save for me at the front desk. Lafitte Guest House has a couple of great porches to relax... More

This charming guest house is a wonderful example of New Orleans charm in an historic setting. Our suite had 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a large living room/dining room, and a kitchen with stove top, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishes, cookware, serving utensils; folding chairs for our part of the large balcony, which was nice at night. Office staff was very friendly... More

The first time I stayed a Lafitte I loved it, hence why I came back two years later. This time, our room was dirty, there was mold on the walls, and a hole covered with duct ape in our window that was still letting bugs in! We had breakfast delivered to our door the first time we stayed, but they... More

I recently stayed at Lafitte Guest House for my birthday weekend and I cannot begin to say enough about how I absolutely enjoyed staying there. Perfect location for the sights of Bourbon Street. Far enough away but close enough !! We stayed on the 4th floor which was the attic. Loved it !! The beds were amazing as were the... More

We loved this place so much we stayed twice in the same month! The location is perfect for touring the French Quarter area. We will stay here again for sure. Very cool old 1800's French feeling. You feel like you're traveling back in time.

This is a gorgeous guest house in a great location. It is right on Bourbon Street - but far enough down the street from the major craziness. We had a room with a balcony - and it was a fantastic place to spend time looking out over the city. The room was stunning! I will warn people that the bathroom... More

We were not told that the room required going up a narrow, long attic staircase. Way too many electrical extension cords-they were at every outlet. No water pressure nor HOT water. Later that night after cancelling a nice dinner reservation because we could not shower we were offered a room change which would give us hot water but then NO... More

We live a/b 20 miles west of New Orleans, and were looking to spend the a couple nights in N.O. but didn't want to do the typical large fancy hotels in the French Quarter. So glad we found LGH. Our room was fabulous, room 2 off the parlor.....furnishings were wonderful, bed was super comfy, bathroom was small, but adequate. Staff... More
