Stayed for 3 nights, booked late just 2 Weeks before going. On arrival allocated a suite with sitting room kitchenette as well a bedroom. Furnishings were well kept, bed was comfortable, 2 TVs and coffee making for a pot not a miserable cup. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. There is a bar where many locals seem to come for... More

The rooms was exactly like the pictures online. The bed was very comfortable. There was plenty of hot water and the shower was huge. No tub in our room so if you like a soak might want to ask about that. I was greeted by a young lady whose name I don't remember who was the nicest person I've ever... More

This is our first time to New Orleans. We stayed at the Holiday Inn the first night. It was nice, BUT if you want service, class, taste, then you stay at this hotel. The minute you walk in you are treated like royalty, room was clean, view is beautiful. Thank you Nicole and Adam for your wonderful service. We will... More

Have been staying here for a few years. Have always had a good experience. Reasonable priced rooms, great location. Rooms have been updated. Wifi worked fine. We were on the 6th floor in a newer room. Very comfortable stay. My daughter was on 3rd floor in a great room; more suite-like. Very comfortable. We will be back very soon.

Nice rooms that felt very New Orleans. They could do with some improved lighting but otherwise were well equipped. The staff unfortunately were quite rude. The housekeeper couldn't wait to get me out of the room on the day of checkout and kept knocking on my door every fifteen minutes to see if she could make up my room even... More

My fourth stay at the Lafayette Hotel to attend the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and was so pleased with the changes made to the rooms. All the rooms have been updated and some were converted into two-bed rooms. The highlight of the remodel, in my opinion, is the newly-created Penthouse Suites. I was fortunate to have experienced all... More

This is wonderful hotel that is close to Lafayette Park. I arrived on a Wednesday in June and there was a fabulous free concert series next door at the park. I walked to Frenchmen Street from the hotel. Everything is within walking distance. I was happy the room was very comfortable and elegantly decorated.. I will absolutely be back again.... More

The Lafayette Hotel is perfectly located. A short walk to the French quarter and Riverwalk and right on the St. Charles streetcar line and 2 blocks from the Magazine Street bus line which runs down to Audobon Park and some great shopping areas. There are many many terrific restaurants just within a few blocks. In addition to the excellent location,... More

Helpful an friendly staff. Beautiful, spacious, clean room. Large bathroom with enormous shower. Great wifi. Difficult to park but they do offer valet parking for about $30 a night. We stayed Sunday night when it's free to park in the side streets next to the hotel. No breakfast provided but there is a fantastic breakfast/brunch/lunch place over the road.

We were there 7th-8th of June. I got the baloney rm and it looked exactly like the site pics. I didnt like the lighting cause it was kinda dim, I guess that's cause the street light were so bright shining into the room. Don't get te baloney if ur a light sleeper. The staff was great very friendly and eager... More
