Loved the facility and felt so "New Orleans." Would definitely stay there again. I want to try all the rooms. So much history. Staff was wonderful and so professional. Location is perfect for experiencing the French Quarter. We had no complaints. The entire stay was very warm and romantic

We're 3 women who travel to NOLA every year, and this is our first experience at a different hotel. We liked where we've always stayed, but wanted a new experience. We loved Lafitte! The antiques and art were wonderful as were our 2 rooms. We stayed the first night in #25 and the second in #5 as neither were available... More

We stayed at Lafittes on a Thursday October 10, 2013. We found Lafittes' comfortable and convienent for walking the French Quarter. The staff were extremely friendly and courteous. Especially the young lady who checked us out and helped us with the car. Her smile would make anyone's day start out right. We were in room three. Loved the decor and... More

I loved the location of the hotel. I loved our hotel room (tall ceilings & a balcony). The elevator didn't work (without much fanagling), so we had to carry an SUV FULL of wedding supplies to our car from our second story room. The reason we'd rented this room was so we had access to the courtyard for a bachelor/bachelorette... More

If you're looking for a spot close to the night life of the French Quarter, then this is the place to be. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was a nice size compared to other B&B's in the area, but the bathroom was small. A large/tall person would have had trouble using the accommodations (Rm 24). The bed... 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
