The location of this B&B is great. It is a block from the streetcar that will get you to all the major attractions in about 15 min. We took our car out of the parking one time in the week we were there. There are good restaurants on St. Charles Ave a block a way as well as a close... More

Man, this place was a real find! It looks charming from the outside and in. Everything about this place was top noch. The location was about 10-15 mins from the main sights (about 20mins to the French Quarter). Closer by, there are a number of good cafes and restaurants to eat and shopping area full of boutique shops and cafes... More

My husband and I stayed here during our trip to New Orleans. This is a good option for a cheap, but comfortable and clean place to stay. The place does need some updating(looks like there is water damage to the ceiling above the room we stayed in) and maybe a fresh paint job but for the price we paid I'm... More

I'm sharing review for my stay at the Fairchild just a few days ago. Before that I have to point out that prior to making any hotel bookings, I always to make sure that I will be getting the best cultural experience out of the cities that I visit. Franchise hotels didn't really attract me that much, especially if you're... More

This is the second time I have stayed at the Fairchild House, and I had a great time again! We came during the first weekend of Mardi Gras, and they had a good room available at a great price compared to all of the other hotels. My boyfriend and I stayed in a queen room. It was very comfortable and... More

You can expect a good experience if you choose this location. I was there over x'mas and found this neighborhood to be safe and quiet. Away from the French quarter but close to Tulane. Many things to keep you busy uptown.

we stayed in a room with a queen size bed, the B&B is nice and charming in a great location. A block from the trolley and some good restaurants, if you don't want the hustle and noise of being down town, this is a good place to stay a ten minute Trolley ride and your at the French Quarter. The... More

I recently stayed at the Fairchild House for a weekend, and had a very pleasant stay. Staff was friendly and helpful, and the rooms serviceable. The building is very old (1840s), and has attendant issues. (Sound insulation is not great, floors can be uneven.) The age also contributes to an appearance of being unclean, but I did feel like anything... More

Our room was very nice, roomy and pleasant, the bed was very comfortable. We stayed here at the Fairchild for 4 nights. The staff were ever so helpful with local information and any requests we had. The continental breakfast was above and beyond. Fresh fruit, fresh coffee and always a warm welcome from Beatrize and her mother. Conveniently located, if... More

While the bed was very comfortable, many other things lacked. The closet light did not work; one electrical outlet did not work. There was marks on the walls to make the room appear dirty. The coffee pot in the room was not clean. The rusty shower curtain rod and shower fixtures, as well as masking tape to hold the bathroom... More
