“Loved, loved, loved my room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2008

My husband and two 16 year olds stayed in a one-bedroom (with pull out couch) room on the 4th floor. I was very shocked at how beautiful the room was and how much space we had. We stayed a week and couldn't have been more pleased. The owner, George, was very nice, as was the front desk staff (Marlene and Angel) and Matt, who let us keep our luggage in his office after check out time because the girls wanted to go to the wax museum before we left. The housekeepers were very nice also and always made sure we had lots and lots of towels!

The ONLY problem we had was that we had babies on BOTH sides of us and the sound drifted over into our room. It wasn't intolerable, but I had to sleep with a pillow over my head so that I wouldn't be awaken at 7:30 a.m.

Parking in NOLA is horrible, but my husband was able to bargain with the garage next door, and we only spent $70.00 for parking in a garage that had 24-hour security.

All in all, a very wonderful experience. We felt safe and the location was great without being smack in the middle of Bourbon Street (2 blocks away).

My friend traded a red week timeshare to stay at Maison. We were told the one bedroom had a queen and a foldout bed. This is true. I was the guest of the timeshare owner and therefore got the foldout bed. This was the poorest excuse for a bed that I had ever slept on. The apartment was so small that it was difficult for two people to get around. The bed in the bedroom was very nice. However, the bedroom was so small that when we were trying to get our clothes out of the closet or dresser - only one person could be in the room.
I don't know how 4 people could ever be in that apartment. A hotel with two double beds would have been better and cheaper.

The only good thing I can say about the place is that the towels were nice.

Parking was an extra $15 per day.

The Maison Pierre Lafitte in New Orleans, LA was a GREAT Place to stay. It was a EASY walk to everything in New Orleans. Very close to Bourbon Street and practically on Canal Street. Could walk to Restuarants, Grocery/Convience Stores, etc. CLEAN and VERY UPDATED/NICE Rooms. I stayed in a One Bedroom--had a small living room with a sofa and table/chairs with a large TV with Cable and a little kitchenette (Mini Fridge, 2 burner stove top, convention oven/microwave, coffee maker, and basic utensils. A seperate bedroom with a very comfortable bed and a closet and dresser. The bathroom was a little small, but had VERY nice fixtures and was very updated and clean--lots of mirrors and even a FLAT SCREEN TV in the BATHROOM!! Had lots of little "extras" in the unit--tissue, soap, shampoo, trash bags, paper towels, hair dryer!! The price was VERY CHEAP FOR WHAT YOU GOT--average of about $150 a night--which is CHEAP
in New Orleans!! I felt very safe at this hotel--I traveled by myself
and never felt that my safety was an issue.
