This is a lovely house in the perfect location. It's at one end of Bourbon street, so you can walk out the door, prance down Bourbon as far as you want, then turn around and head back and end up at home. Mansion room 40, the entire top floor, is very spacious, clean and comfy. Parking is $30 per night,... More

We spent the big bucks to have a haunted hotel room on Bourbon Street for our New Orleans experience. The room is of course magnificent relative to its historical inception; with that in mind, do not expect a jet tub in the bathroom which I suspect was actually a converted closet. The balcony was lovely and if there wasn't so... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lafitte Guest House. We were treated well. We occupied two rooms, both of which were comfortable with everything we needed. In addition, the house offers a community balcony and kitchen, with free snacks, including sodas! (Where else can you find that?) Hot coffee and breakfast was waiting for us in the morning. The location... More

Lafitte Guest House is located in the perfect section of the French Quarter. It's in the quieter section of Bourbon Street, but still full of activity. It was only a short walk to all of the places we wanted to visit. Our room's balcony overlooked the French Quarter and the view was nothing short of breathtaking. The room and entire... More

The hotel is phenomenal, great location, beautiful and unique rooms. We stayed for two nights, and were checked in promptly and quickly. Parking is tight, the staff did drive two guest vehicles with the park brake on while we were checking, so be wary of this. Unfortunately I was not told of the $30.00/day parking fee at the time of... More

The Guest House was superb. The bed was incredible. The staff was curtious and precise. The breakfast overlooking Bourbon Street was a great morning addition. Enjoyed every minute of our stay. If you stay on Bourbon street and you don't stay at the guest house you are missing out on the whole great experience.

Where do I begin about this wonderful place to stay. The rooms are beautiful and super clean. The staff is wonderful. Front desk very informed, housekeepers friendly and fun, and the maintenance man, helpful. They all went out of their way to make this a wonderful stay. They even had a crayfish boil on Saturday for the guests. We didn't... More

It was our first time to stay at the Lafitte Guest House and we will return. When we arrived, we were greeted by a smiling employee and were immediately offered to participate in a crawfish boil. The rooms were charming. I just fell in love with this charming property in one of my favorite cities.
