My grandmother and I stayed at the Lafayette Hotel at the end of March 2014 while we were in town for an academic conference. The rooms were very nice and spacious and located in a historic building. Additionally, the hotel is located in a nice, safe area of town that is close to the French Quarter but not too close... More

Older hotel but the room was spacious and very very clean. The hotel staff were very nice and friendly. Location is close to the French Quarter and Superdome. Valet parking was $28 a night but worth it being that parking is scarce in this downtown area. Highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed in a suit, it was a good size. It was clean, the staff was very friendly. The room had an older historic feel to it, you could see where towel racks or door knobs had been replaced. That didn't bother me, I am glad that they were replaced because I am sure they needed to be. Any older... More

This hotel is beautiful and and regal and though it is old it still has class and elegance. We really enjoyed our stay here for Mardi Gras. The room was HUGE, the marble floors in the bathroom so cool, and the front desk staff very helpful.

I stayed again at the Lafayette hotel for Mardi Gras 2014. The rooms had been renovated and added flat screen television. The accommodations were much improved. It is still a great place to stay for Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

We stayed 2 nights at the Lafayette. The location is good if you do not want to stay on Bourbon Street. The room was clean and the staff was friendly for the most part. Now for the negative 1. The tv is mounted on the wall at an angle away from bed. You are having to watch it from the... More

The location is perfect for walking to The French Quarter,museums,casino and great restaurants without the noise of The French Quarter hotels.The hotel is small but the rooms are large.The GM and staff are very helpful and efficient.I understand that the guest rooms furnishings will be replaced very soon.I highly recommend this hotel.

We found this hotel through the App: Hotel Tonight. It pops up a list of hotels that have last minute available rooms and their price. The Lafayette Hotel had availability and a great price. We booked. It is historical and has a great location. It is only a couple of blocks to Bourbon Street. We got a suite with a... More

Very nice, well maintained property. Suite was very roomy and clean. Extra charges for parking and wifi. Parking was vallet only, but very secure, well worth the $30/day to park. wifi was $5 extra per day and very slow. Great restaurant downstairs, street car stops right in front of hotel. Front desk very friendly and helpful.
