We walked into the room and it was very cozy. Little did we know that we had a separate TV area as well with an additional pull out sofa bed. It was just my husband and I and there was so much room. The bed was soft and comfortable after walking around all day. The bathroom was clean and tidy... More

Found the Lafayette Hotel to be a good choice after reading many reviews before booking. Our experience was so wonderful that it will now become our hotel of choice when staying in New Orleans. We couldn't have asked for a better location and it is in a safe neighborhood. It is close enough to the French Quarter but, far enough... More

Have spent a great deal of time over the years in New Orleans and the Lafayette Hotel has now become our hotel of choice. Location is great, right on St. Charles streetcar line and just six blocks from the French Quarter(which is way too crowded and touristy). It also is conveniently located right across the street from our favorite restaurant,... More

Stayed for our honeymoon. Hotel provided champagne in room which was a lovely gesture. Door and desk staff very helpful and engaging particularly Dwayne who was very helpful. Any difficulties were resolved quickly. Easy walking to French Quarter, easy access to street cars. Next to Lafayette Square where we caught Trombone Shorty in a free gig. Food at Mikes was... More

My husband and I recently had a lovely stay at this hotel during a 3 day trip to New Orleans. Suite was spacious, and nicely appointed. The room was old in a nostalgic way, but clean, although the carpet was in need of a scrubbing or replacement. This aside, the staff was exceptional and could not be more attentive and... More

Our recent stay in New Orleans was enhanced by having a great hotel to stay in. The location on St. Charles Avenue made it easy to use a street car or walk to all of the action in New Orleans. The food at the nearby Herbsainte restaurant was delicious. There is a coffee shop across the street, open during the... More

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
