A doorman, classical music, and a charming ambiance greet you at this hotel. It's located in a quiet neighborhood, but close enough to the French Quarter to walk or take the streetcar. We had a balcony overlooking Lafayette Park and the bed was heavenly! They have some free street parking, which was such a blessing! We didn't move our car... More

My wife and I took a trip to New Orleans and decided we wanted to lodge near the French Quarter. Our search for hotels in the area led us to The Lafayette Hotel on St Charles Ave. The hotel immediately reminded me of some of the hotels I had stayed in during visits to Paris and the location was close...

This hotel is not a perfect 5 star prime hotel, but it is a pretty good 4 star charmer and well worth the price. Location: in Warehouse District on St. Charles Street. The streetcar is literally right out the front door and there is lots within walking distance either way (into the Lower Garden District, Warehouse, or French Quarter). Also... More

Let’s start by saying that there is no place like home. That said; let’s get to the important stuff! Upon check in we were informed that our room would be next to the elevator. We expressed concern and were told that we had nothing to worry about. Reluctantly we proceeded to our room. To our surprise and amazement, the room... More

Charming hotel close to the French Quarter but far enough to enjoy the sights. St. Charles trolley is right outside the door to carry you to French Quarter, Garden District, Lafayette Square. Suites are huge. The restaurant was closed for vacation but easy access to plenty of other choices. Just off from the Business District so able to walk the... More

This was a nice small hotel. The rooms were pretty clean and the furnishings were fresh. Convenient to most things in New Orleans; either a short walk or streetcar ride. Staff was very friendly. The street noise was a little loud on the front of the building and our room occasionally had a smokey smell, but otherwise a very pleasant... More

Charming hotel, close to everything but still away from the bustle. Across the street is a streetcar stop for the St. Charles streetcar, and across the other street is Lafayette Square, a historic landmark. We traveled with our dog, a German Shepherd and the staff was really nice and welcoming.There were no issues and the dog and we felt very... More

Liked: Small, charming, really nice staff, away from French Quarter and right next to the Arts District, streetcar right out front, huge suites, great happy hour. Disliked: A bit of inconvience due to remodeling (some noise & no water for about 4 hrs. one day), the maids could have done a little better job.

It's confenient to everything. We walked to the French Quarter daily, to the Garden District, St. Louis Cemetery #1, and the WWII Museum all from the hotel. Every staff member we encountered was friendly. Our room (403) was huge and very clean. If you want modern instaed of aged patina, etc., this isn't the hotel for you, but if you... More

We chose this property based on price and location, in spite of the fact that some reviews were less than stellar. It was a wonderful stay in a boutique hotel in a quiet area. It was close to everything, but not in the middle of the rowdy areas. The room was so comfy, the staff so helpful and the room... More
