This old, but in the process of sprucing up, hotel is extremely well located on St. Charles Ave. streetcar stop on corner as is one of New Orleans best restaurants, Herbsainte. Clean, comfortable, ask for one of the completed floors. Should be finished by end of June. Service is excellent, but wi-fi spotty.

This hotel was recommended to us by a friend who stays there several times a year, and it was a good tip. The hotel is old, but comfortable. We tried but couldn't get a balcony room. The room we got was large, very nice king size bed, decent bed linens. Bathroom was large but, of course, not enough shelves to... More

My husband and I stayed for a week that included the first weekend of Jazz Fest. We had a large room on the south side on the fourth floor. We slept well in the comfortable king size bed. We really wished for a fridge in the room, and wanted to open a window, but it was explained that by city... More

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.
