For starters, we were set to arrive early evening on July 25th. I was a little nervous that we would be at risk of losing our room or being bumped to a lesser quality room. To put my mind at ease, I contacted the Lamothe house the day before our departure. I was greeted by a remarkably pleasant voice. I... More

My wife and I just stayed a two night mid week stay for $99. Two nights, $99. OK, so it's the end of July, it's hot and humid in NOLA, but there's almost no TOURISTS and if you know your way around, you can walk for ten minutes, then pop into somewhere air conditioned, cool off, then go again. Lamothe... More

Stayed here during a bachelor party with some of my best friends. The staff was very friendly and accommodating! The hotel is beautifully restored, and has a great location! I have no complaints about the hotel! I would stay here again, and recommend it to other!

My super experience at Hotel lamothe My sincerest apologies for taking so long to make this post. Three weeks ago I had the pleasure of staying 3 nights and 4days at The Lamothe House Hotel during Essence Festival/ Fourth of July weekend, and it was literally one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. There is no question... More

We had two rooms (One suite and one 2 bed room) when we stayed here and both were fantastic. The staff was always friendly and knew the best spots to visit. The hotel was always clean and respected the "do not disturb" signs when posted. I would absolutely recommend this hotel and will be staying here next time I visit... More

My friends and I stayed in two of the Lamothe rooms. The first one was absolutely majestic; it featured high ceilings, a fine European chandelier, a huge and comfortable king bed, a pull out sofa bed and best of all... tons of space to party! The second room was exactly what we wanted after hours of exploring the city, it... More

Our room was a nice surprise- it was a two bedroom with a sitting area. Having a seperate bedroom- with a door- was wonderful. But, we were on the third floor- and there were no elevators. Carrying heavy suitcases up and down the stairs was not fun. Or even just coming back from a busy, exhausting day- and having to... More

There are lots of options in New Orleans and I would pick somewhere else. This place is not clean or well kept. I wish we would have stayed somewhere else. There are separate rooms from the main building which do not seem secure at all. I am suprised we didn't get stuff taken. Go elsewhere!

This hotel has been recently updated. The location is good if you like live music. Since the building is old and some say haunted, it has that old time New Orleans feel. I have stayed there many times and will stay again. It is priced appropriately. If it goes up, I would look elsewhere.

Charming, but lacking the advantages of a full service hotel. Our room was in a separate, freestanding building and not the secured main building. Our room, while a king sized, was small for two people, and the bathroom very small. On the positive side, the furniture was nice, and the bed was very comfortable with nice linens. Parking was an...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the ancient oaks of Esplanade Avenue, the ornate architectural detail of the past meets modern comfort and convenience in our restoration of the historic Lamothe House hotel. Featuring an elaborate courtyard accented by mature landscaping, a garden pond, and a refreshing pool, peace and relaxation are just steps away from the thrill the Crescent City has to offer.In addition to 30 guest rooms refinished in traditional style, five Grand Antique Suites have been preserved from the original 1839 construction of the home of Jean Lamothe, a wealthy sugar cane planter of French descent. Furnished with antique furniture & artwork, the detail and charm that exemplifies old New Orleans is accessible to today’s traveler.Not to be overlooked is the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood the Lamothe House calls home. Here visitors will find Frenchmen Street, often referred to as “the local’s Bourbon Street”, which features some of the best local music and cuisine found in the French Quarter.Whether it’s your first or your next visit to the Big Easy, find the authentic New Orleans experience you are searching for at the Lamothe House. ... more   less
