I chose the Lafayette House because of it's location and it's charm that I read about on Tripadvisor. My daughter and I stayed in No. 10 which is on the 3rd floor, has a rear view and windows on 3 walls. This king bedded room has velvet drapes, antique rugs over wood floors, an antique armoire, a chest of drawers, a cafe table with chairs and a lovely seetee. The very small kitchenette area has a frig - circa, 1940 - and a new mini frog. There is a stove top that we did not use. The bath is comfortable and is as small or large as any 4 star hotel in the city.
Upon check in, Asia met us at the front door and helped up to our room. She is lovely. The services at Lafayette House are first class. They are only a phone call away. The property has no lobby or front desk. It feels as though you are coming home to a rooming house in the 1900th century --- only nicer. The manager, Dave Partee, was the most gracious host and took our calls no matter what time. It's owner, Sean MacPherson also owns the Bowery Hotel which is around the corner. Their restaurant, GEMMA, is wonderful. The Lobby Bar at the Bowery Hotel is lovely and you feel as though you are in your home.
As a guest of Lafayette House you are invited to use the gym at The Bowery Hotel. The room is very small, intimate and wonderful.
The B Bar, next door, will delver meals to your room. Great perk.
