The French Quarter is an elegantly decadent place that is best visited by staying in an elegantly decadent bottique hotel. The LaFitte Guest House fits the bill exactly. An old (1849) mansion that hits just the right flavors with antique decor, the location at in the resdiential end of Bourbon Street contnues the splendid taste sampler by allowing guests to lounge quietly on the balcony while viewing all the honky-tonk down the street. Shut the doors and you are instantly in sheltered from the bustle. Step outside and you are within blocks of all the best the Quarter can offer. Super friendly and accomodating staff.
