The place was expensive so when I walked in and saw the tiny reception area over in the corner with one person sitting behind the desk I was REALLY hoping I wasn't gonna be disappointed with my room after spending half a month's rent on 3 nights in NOLA. Check in was painless. I got a room on the 5th... More

This is an awesome location when mardis gras is happening. The parades go right past your window. The bad part is you will pay through the nose for it. We went through clc. And got a much better rate but even then it was very expensive. The room was great and the staff was superb.

This hotel is ideal for Mardi Gras since it faces St. Charles, the parade route.. We had balcony rooms that allowed for watching the parades and catching beads::-) There is a restaurant, but you must pick up your food to take back to the room if you don't eat there. Rooms are nice and the beds are comfortable and noise... More

PROS: * Location is the best...within walking distance to French Quarter, Convention Center, WWII Museum and LOTS of great restaurants. St Charles streetcar right across the street. * Staff is friendly and helpful. Small property so they know and greet you as you come and go * Rooms are dated, but spacious and clean * Great rate for NOLA CONS:... More

The Lafayette Hotel is wonderful! I truly found nothing to complain about at all. The location is perfect! The rooms are very clean, the beds are great. The shower was perfect, very good water pressure and no issues with heat. The staff are very nice and talkative, sharing what they know about the area to fit your needs. We felt... More

This was a wonderful historic hotel located within a 10 min walk of the convention center where I recently had to do business. The staff was very helpful and had wonderful recommendations for places to eat. The rooms were spacious and beds extremely comfortable. Would recommend they add a little more lighting in the rooms and the internet was a... More

We had a room right on the balcony that made parade viewing amazing! Customer service done right!! We had a small problem with the patio locks that was taken care of very quickly. They were soooo helpful getting across and around the parades when necessary. Small cute hotel with nice rooms!

we loved the location, five blocks from bourbon street and across from a nice park. However rooms are very old dirty carpets and rooms are small. The staff were nice at front desk. Probably won't stay again.

Very convenient for the weekend parades just before Mardi Gras. The parades went right past the front door. 10 minute walk to Bourbon St, so nice and quiet in the evening. The restaurant was booked all days but there are a lot of nice eateries close by (east).

I wish I could have rated it less than 1. My girlfriend and I booked our trip though the hotel in November and everything seemed fine. We arrived at our hotel early in the morning and was told the room was not ready. They held our luggage and we scoped out the New Orleans area. We received a call that... More
