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

Great location, beautiful property and really nice staff. We stayed in the one bedroom suite, which has an awesome balcony and a lot of character in terms of the rooms, furniture, etc. Everything was clean and the bed was comfortable. Definitely lets you feel like a local for a couple of days (in the best way possible).

Beatriz and her staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed/wanted. Fairchild House is perfectly located to everything. One short block walk and you're on St. Charles Avenue with all the restaurants and shops and the streetcars. The National WWII Museum is a very easy 5 or 6 block away. The rooms are very... More

I stayed here for Mardi Gras 2015 (Feb. 13 - Feb. 18) and I loved it. My room was clean, comfortable, and had a homey feeling to it. I have stayed at pricier places in New Orleans like Le Pavillon and The Westin, and the main difference is that when I stayed at those places I felt like a visitor,... More

I booked the only room with a double bed for a Mardi Gras stay with a friend. We both loved the quaintness of the B&B along with the great neighborhood feel. Our room was very spacious and clean with a cute courtyard right outside our door. The breakfast was very good and was a nice way to start out the... More
