We had a great time during our two night stay at the Fairchild. The hosts went above and beyond expectations. Our room seemed newly refurbished, but it still kept its wonderful uniqueness and warmth. Breakfast was beautiful. The a/c worked well despite the sweltering July weather. We would gladly stay here again!

A very interesting interior that was nice to look at, good location. But the mattress was very old, we could barely sleep on it. The shower was too small. The breakfast was not very tasty - the orange juice was old.

My fiancé and I were guests here for a week and we enjoyed every minute of our stay, the gracious hosts/ hostesses, the close proximity to the RTA streetcars, the 'round the corner' restaurants with eats that are sure to please your palate...the vintage feel and look of this B & B , isn't for everyone but if you like...

We redeemed a groupon for a room here for a short one night trip to New Orleans. The b&b is in a quiet neighborhood lined with beautiful old homes. It is conveniently located just a 2 minute walk from the St. Charles streetcar which drops you right on Canal street at Bourbon. Also within a less than 5 minute walk... More

This place is a charming authentic B&B experience in a great New Orleans location. The house is cute and was built in the 1800's. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was simple and nice in the breakfast room. The staff was friendly. We walked to the street car everyday which was only a block away (the St Charles line).... More

This is true B&B with nice and pleasant owner and stuff. If you don't want craziness of Bourbon st, this is the place! 3 min walk to street car and 15 min later you are in French quoters. Then you can hop on and off the double deckers "city sightseeing New Orleans" for 3 days in the row for $29.... More

The location in the Garden District is excellent. The property was a bit confusing at first. It helps to know that the buildings are separated and you have to walk around the building to get to the entrance to the rooms and so forth. We were greeted by a young man and he showed us to our room. The room... More

Having read the generally good reviews on this place I was expecting it to be old fashioned. What I hasn't expected was that it would be so DIRTY (walls, bed frame, carpet, toilet, sink). I've stayed in lots of budget hotels and I'm never looking for luxury, just basic cleanliness, which this place sadly did not have. The staff were... More

My wife and I spent 2 week nights at Fairchild B&B at the end of March. Our stay was wonderful. The room was nice and loved the court yard. We were able to get on the Street Car only a block away and it took us to the French Quarters. The WW2 Museum is within a short walking distance (4... More
