We enjoyed our stay here. Didn't spend as much time just at the B&B as I would have hoped. Didn't see any ghost..though had read (as an afterthought) it was haunted. Nice location. Easy to get too. Plenty of food in the area. Not a long drive to the attractions. In fact it was fairly close to some of the... More

Me and my husband book the B&B during our trip to New Orleans. It was a great location for us. Close to the WWII museum and to the street car and RTA bus. The building was old but had nice charm. Breakfast was served only for an hour so we had to plan on when to wake up. That for... More

We stayed at the Fairchild House B & B for 3 nights. The owner was very hospitable and we enjoyed her company and local knowledge.We enjoyed the location, close to the streetcar and a couple of good restaurants. Our room was basic, the bathroom had a claw-foot tub propped up with a dirty old piece of priority mail box and... More

The Fairchild House is located right at the edge of the Garden District. We were welcomed by a very nice young lady who showed us to our room and told us the times and where breakfast was served as the owner was away for a few days. Our room was very clean and typical of B&B expectations. Breakfast was a... More

Beautifull old buildings, lots of caracter, excellent breakfast. the Garden district is a great neigbourhood.The streetcar is around the corner and it brings you in no time to the French Quarter. The downside of staying in a old building was the airco which made a lot of noise and the very bad Wifi connection.But all in all a lovely place.

My business partner & myself are history buffs and being a videographer, a trip to the "big easy" was a must. After searching for b&b's in the New Orleans area, my search ended when I found The Fairchild House. Beautifully built in the mid 19th century, the house is a time capsule and has that beautiful 19th century feel even... More

As with everything in New Orleans, this place is older and more dated than your average B&B. It is simple and basic with no frills. The price is right as well as the location. It's within easy walking distance of the trolleys and buses and just on the outskirts of the Garden District. Soap and shampoo are the only toiletries... More

Love this place it was clean it was historic it felt like staying back in time. The only drawback was the tiny television in the room but it was a beautiful bed and breakfast. Other drawback was the breakfast was only served for one hour. The price was hiked up because we went during the jazz fest, rooms I am... More

The room was big and comfortable for the three of us. Location was perfect. You're able to walk to the French Quarter. We even did it late at night. Also took a cab once (only $10). Loved the neighborhood. The people were very nice too. We felt so welcome. Breakfast was so good in a very beautiful room. We would... More

We found this B&B on Groupon, for the price we paid this was a great steal! The staff was amazing and friendly and we loved chatting with them upon arriving and while sitting for breakfast, they were prepared with all the great places to visit and talked a lot of the culture which was great for us because we were...
