I had no idea of the lay of the land in New Orleans, but our location right off the St. Charles streetcar line couldn't have been more perfect. In a few minutes, we were at Canal St and the French Quarter, but our nights were quiet and peaceful. We could walk to the WWII Museum and nearby restaurants, too. Beatriz,... More

My husband and I frequently visit New Orleans from Baton Rouge. We have stayed in all the major sections of the city and have been guests in dozens of different hotels and B&Bs in the area. Typically, our reactions are, "really awesome rooms but too expensive," or "great price but too shabby." There always seems to be a trade off... More

Room 12: Visible dust, coffee machine filthy and not usable, fireplace tiles held in place with tape and glue, area rugs old and dirty, bathroom very small with LOTS of mold, all the walls and doors were filthy. Bedding was clean but cheap feeling. Mattress was hard, cheap and not comfortable. Door had a chunk missing from the bottom. Stale... More

Fairchild House is a little larger than most normal bed and breakfasts. It is spread out over two very large houses just outside the French Quarter. Very reasonably priced and very large accommodations are provided. Parking for us was pretty easy and they do provide a small parking lot if you are driving. But once parked you really don’t need...

The room we stayed in was rather filthy. The door was covered in dirt and grim. Stains, streaks and dirt all over the walls. There was a large gap between the door and the floor so one didn't feel they had much privacy. It did not appear to have been vacuumed and the bed itself was a solid as a... More

Nice area, everyone was really nice and provided great accommodations. Loved the wide breakfast spread every morning. Close to the trolley stop and some great restaurants. Older buildings but have been maintained well. Comfortable rooms.

I love staying at Fairchild House when visiting from the U.k. A perfect location IMO. Walking distance from the French Quarter and also the shops and bars I like to visit on Magazine St. For those less inclined or able to walk the St. Charles streetcar is about 100 yards away. Fairchild House is a real piece of old New... More

With the trolley one block away, this quaint b & b is situated a perfect distance from the Quarter...Close enough to get to, far enough to have quiet nights. Mattress was fantastic, possibly the finest I have ever slept on. Check in uneventful, with Ross providing a quick tour to get acquainted to the buildings. One detraction, breakfast did not... More

I really enjoyed staying at this bed and breakfast. Very well located in the Garden district, one block away from the streetcar but in a quite and tranquil block. Loved the generous breakfast and the excellent guidance of the city given by Ross in the front desk.

Fairchild was a great place to stay in the Garden District. You are only a block from the trolley to take you all over the city. And you're even closer to the Garden & Cemetery tours and Commanders Palace by walking. Beatriz was great and offered many recommendations. Saturdays and Sundays she made egg dishes to go along with the... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
