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

I haven't had an opportunity to review this hotel, but I just have to expose this little gem. I booked a room at this hotel 2 years ago for my birthday and it was the best experience ever! My birthday was during a weekend convention and just about every hotel was booked, so my boyfriend at the time suggested this... More

We spent 4 nights during the New Year's Eve. The Hotel is in a good position very close to the French district but is vey poor for services and hospitality. We arrived at 1100 pm and we had to wait outside for 10 min before they open and then another 10-15 min to do the check at the reception even... More

I had stayed at the Lafayette Hotel in November of 2013. It had been a good experience at a fantastic price. I had to spend Thanksgiving Eve in New Orleans with my son and wanted to stay there again. My experience was the same as the first time. Top Knotch, Reasonable pricing, convenient to the Quarter. I had a slight... More

I'd like to start by saying that I absolutely love this hotel, and that I will definitely return. However, I'd like to make it known that some of the rooms are being renovated. Renovation is a good thing, however, when I travel I love to sleep past 7 am. That's correct folks, the sound of squeaking doors, tape being dispensed,... More
