We stayed here on a quick trip with friends recently. The hotel is charming. The decor is "old-fashioned," which fits in fine with the theme of the hotel. There is not much of a lobby for relaxing or waiting in. The bar area has been nicely updated but is quite loud, with cement floors and lots of TVs (not a... More

My girlfriend and I had a marvelous week at the Lafayette Hotel in a lovely room (with balconies). The location was convenient to the St Charles trolley and was within walking distance or a short cab ride to the Quarter, Frenchman St, and many restaurants in the warehouse district. The service was impeccable and particular appreciation goes to Dwayne, at... More

My wife and I visit NO at least twice a year and like to stay at the Lafayette. It's an older place, chaming, and the staff are fairly cordial. We get a corner suite with a 'frig, buy groceries at Rouse's down the street, and prepare some modest meals in the room, or enjoy a picnic at the park next... More

Close to the conference hotel (Hilton Riverside) but significantly less expensive. Lovely old building that has been well taken care of and is delightful. Clean, comfortable. Lovely staff - very helpful. Breakfast place down the street was fantastic and the restaurant in the hotel very good too. recommended.

Friends and I stayed for 5 nights for Jazz Fest and city fun. The property is centrally located walking distance of the Quarter, Riverfront, and Kingdome. My room was spacious and the bed very comfortable. Even though it shows it's age, I'd stay again.

On return from the cruise the Hotel kept our luggage.while we went to the Frech Quarter. The door man told us about a deli / grocery... More

We loved our stay at the Lafayette Hotel, no doubt in part because we were upgraded to a corner suite. The floor to ceiling windows, wraparound balcony and older furniture reminded me of French hotels, but the view of Lafayette Square and Gallier Hall, combined with the gentle rumble of the St. Charles streetcar, told me I could be in...

Fine if your idea of character is old and shabby. Incredibly noisy if you are in a room at the front of the hotel where the St Charles street car line runs (conveniently perhaps) 24hrs a day. Do not expect flat screens here (or even remotes that work). The aircon did not cope well with daytime temperatures in April, who... More

We stayed at the Lafayette Hotel because the price was just right and the proximity between the French Quarter and the Garden District was perfect. We were a bit hesitant because we had stayed at "other hotels" in the quarter at an "agreeable price" and turned out to be a dump. So when we got to Lafaytte Hotel and saw... More
