My fiance and I stayed at Fairchild House for a birthday weekend. I had found the B&B on Groupon and thought "What the heck? You can't get anything for $60 in NOLA." What we found delighted us far beyond our expectations. I will start with the fact that if you can't appreciate that you are staying in a home that... More

What I love about B&Bs is that they often enable me to immerse myself in the neighborhood and gain more personal insights and stories than gathered at a hotel - from either other guests or those that run the B&B. The mother-daughter proprietors of the Fairchild B&B provide that experience, along with a delicious breakfast each day, as did our... More

I truly enjoyed the high ceilings in the spacious bedroom. I love the old buildings charms & furnishings. The courtyard was cozy. The staff was friendly and overall it was a typical New Orleans neighborhood. I plan on staying again soon.the staff was very flexible with my change I made with reservation as well as very accommodating to our needs.... More

I was late in making reservation or a large convention in NO and needed a reasonable room that was les then $300 per night. Saw the Fairchild house and said I would give it a try. When I pulled up I was a little set back with almost no sign,a locked gate and an old house on an off street.... More

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
