A lovely boutique hotel near the French Quarter, the courts, Lafayette Park, World War II Museum and many other venues and places of interest. The decor is traditional and nicely appointed, old world charm. The staff is friendly, smiling and accommodating. Our stay was one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had.

The hotel is spotlessly clean. It was very quiet since the streetcar is undergoing renovations. The staff was very friendly and professional. The only issue is that the lighting in the room was dismal. Management needs to go into a room at night and try to read a book. Good luck.

Quick trip with friends to New Orleans. Walking distance to the SuperDome and Bourbon Street. The décor of the hotel is pretty. The beds are super comfortable! Not sure if we were really tired, but every time we sat on the bed, we would fall asleep!

This smaller hotel is walking distance from the World War II Museum complex, the Confederate Museum, Lafayette Park, and the river front shopping mall. Trolley car/bus routes are close-by. Quiet, well decorated, with a friendly and very helpful staff, it was a comfortable place to stay. Restaurants, sandwich and breakfast shops are near. A steak house is connected to the... More

We stayed at the Lafayette for just a few days , but the service and hotel very excellent. We were a little disappointed that the bar and eatery were not open (closed for summer vacation). Overall the place looked to be recently updated with fresh paint amongst other things. I would highly recommend this hotel based on location and price.

We stayed here for the Essence Music Festival held at superdome in July. The location is in the center of everything. Although we rented a car we decided to walk due to the cost of parking. We were about 6 blocks for the Superdome, 4 blocks away for the convention center & 8 blocks for the French Quarter. If you... More

The Lafayette Hotel was a beautiful hotel. It was clean, comfortable, and the staff was very friendly. Best part of all was the price! Our stay was very affordable compared to others in the city! It is located in the beautiful CBD, so it's just a quick cab ride to downtown or the quarter. Thanks for our stay. We will... More

We have discovered a new favorite hotel in New Orleans. I had stayed there years ago during Mardi Gras but this time they had renovated and the room (a suite) was spacious and comfortable Air conditioning was more than adequate (very important at this time of year) Valet parking was very prompt when we needed the car. Restaurant was closed... More

Great way to spend a very special week! This very quaint 98 year old hotel in the garden district of New Orleans was a real treat. This was our 45th wedding anniversary vacation. The hotel staff was great, provides champagne in our room upon arrival and were happy to provide every bit of information we could ask for to make... More

The first thing we noticed was a musty smell of gas when we entered. This was an excellent location, right near the French Quarter and accessible to quite a lot but the cost of parking was extremely high. The valet service was convenient and we received the best customer service from them. The light was not sufficient in the rooms... More
