My friend and I booked a girls weekend here just as Delta was ramping up. When we had to postpone because of Covid issues, they were so accommodating, offering us a refund or credit. We opted for the credit so we knew we'd make the trip. And from start to finish, the staff was so very friendly and helpful. Whether it was advice on things to do/see/eat or just hanging out with other guests at the downstairs bar (you will get talked into trying a voodoo daiquiri), we just enjoyed the atmosphere and camaraderie of the place. We had a 16 year old with us and even she loved it. The building is old and historical. The bannisters are lovely. There is local art on the walls heading all the way up. We stayed in Room 40, the loft. You can take the elevator to the 3rd floor but then need to walk up a flight so be prepared. It's a huge room with two large queen comfy beds, a sitting area, a small but functional bathroom, and a large well lit vanity for getting ready. The three of us could use the space. You have plenty of room to stretch out and not feel on top of each other. Also the views from this room are gorgeous with multiple vistas. As mentioned in previous reviews, you do need to turn on the water a few minutes before you want to shower so the hot water works it way up. I would also say the shower pressure could be better, but the rain water shower head is lovely. There is also plenty of drawer space in antique dressers/nightstands/vanity table if you like to unpack. Lastly, I always bring ear plugs when I travel but was really surprised at how quiet it was given there is a bustling (also historic) bar across the street. We stayed during the week so that might make a difference. They also have a driver available for airport runs. Be sure to ask before you go! Note that this hotel is said to be haunted. If you're sensitive, keep that in mind. To sum up, an excellent location in the heart of the French Quarter that's just far enough away from the hubbub to make things accessible without all the noise.

What a warm welcome to a most fabulous historic home/hotel smack on burbon street! I wouldn't want to ever stay anywhere else! I'll add pics later. You've just got to see this place! Converted 1800's mansion. Vintage. Beautiful staircases, bar, piano player on Thursdays. Relaxing courtyard. Balcony with tables and chairs. Complimentary coffee bar. Security cameras and locked doors. Steps away from all the action on burbon street, but free from the noise (I don't know how).

This boutique hotel exceeded our expectations in hosting an event in the bar, piano lounge, and courtyard. They catered to all of our requests without any hesitation and executed our reception flawlessly. They go above and beyond the hospitality factor to ensure patrons and guests keep returning. I couldn’t recommend this space enough for your next engagement party, birthday party or wedding reception!

Simply amazing! Room with balcony was probably one of the best I ever stayed. Clean room and the entire hotel. Excellent service during my entire stay. Staff was very friendly and professional. Definitely recommend this hotel and when I return to New Orleans, I will be staying here again!

The location for this hotel is great if you want to drink and stumble home pass out and nothing else in the room. It’s a very cute place and has nice bar in it and it’s right on bourbon street. But the sheets had a stain on them that was easily removable with a tide pen so it made it feel like they didn’t clean them well. To say the bathroom was tiny and weirdly laid out is an understatement but that would be fine and quaint like the rest of the room if it had been at all clean. There was a whole fake fingernail in the corner of the shower, not to mention a LOT of hair. We didn’t even want to be in there. The rest of the bathroom could have used a deep clean as well and also the floor in general. The staff at the front desk during the day is great and helpful but god forbid you need something after he leaves. The women there at night seemed appalled we could need anything from her at all and didn’t even bother to tell us there was an elevator even as we lugged out suitcases past her. The WiFi didn’t work and that was treated like something we should just “deal with” but we didn’t have any service either and needed to use our computers while we were there (which shouldn’t be viewed as some terrible thing. Frankly I didn’t go to large city to “unplug”). The parking was accommodating though small. ((But we think they put a scratch down the side of our whole car with the trash cans though I can’t say that for sure)) Needless to say this extremely expensive hotel stay was disappointing and aggravating. I was trying to show my girlfriend a nice time for our first time in NOLA and while our time outside the hotel was great we didn’t want to be in our room at all and that was really sucky. I wish I could say nicer things because the location is good and the man who runs it during the day doesn’t deserve this review when he’s as good at his job as he is but unfortunately after he took care of our check in it was disappointment after disappointment.

We've gone yearly for many years and before Katrina, the Blacksmith Bar was my favorite. Then it got remodeled a bit and music changed, not my fave anymore. But I always wanted to stay at this hotel across from it even though it's far from the main Bourbon area. It is close to gay bars which is good. First night we stayed on the 4th floor just because. It was a nice large room. Bath was fine, though there is a note that the hot water takes a while to get there, and that was true. The bars closed at 11pm, so we didn't have to hear the loud music from the bar. But the next nights they closed at 1am, I made sure to buy earplugs. 2nd & 3rd nights I requested 2nd floor Room 21 because I liked the large balcony. I did not know it's the most haunted room, I read about it. Didn't experience anything. It's a great looking room, BUT the bathroom was very small. I have short legs and when I sat on toilet, my knee hit the sink. My husband who is tall had a hard time. And there isn't good lighting in the room for make-up. Need another lamp. I used daylight from window or went out on balcony. Before we checked into the 2nd floor, we were told the a/c went out during the night but it was back on. It was FREEZING in that room and there is no thermostat. Luckily there was an extra blanket in the closet and I took a sweatshirt. Then on our last night, I woke up hot at 4am, the a/c was completely off. Then it came back on after a while, then turned off again around 6am. Got up cause I couldn't sleep anymore, then it turned on again while I was in shower. So that was frustrating. Only went to the bar downstairs one night and guy bartender was very nice. Hosts at desk were nice.

This hotel has personality around every corner! Every room is unique and nicely decorated. The common areas are beautiful- bar, piano bar, balconies and courtyard. Ken was covering the desk for most of our stay was so very kind and helpful- shared local information and recommendations. The location is great with an easy walk to most French Quarter attractions. The ONLY thing that could be a problem is noise from the bar next door but did not keep us awake. Great stay- will definitely be back!

Let me start off by saying we were clueless as to where to stay with so many options available. I stumbled upon this gem on the net and loved everything it had to offer and booked two nights for a little getaway. The location is great at a somewhat quiet end of Bourbon St. We were in room 21 with a balcony overlooking Bourbon St. It was great to sit out in the evenings and a great place in the morning to enjoy your coffee. The staff were impeccable and so eager to help with anything. The room was full of antiques and a four poster king bed which was very comfortable. The room was clean and lots of nice touches. My only complaint and actually more of a suggestion is some of the furniture s starting to show its age with pieces being broken, etc; might be time for a refresh. The other thing is the bathroom. The bathroom is very tiny and for a big guy a bit awkward. The bathroom is so small the door opens out and there is a step up with the vanity in front of you the toilet to the right and a small shower to the left. It’s an old property and it’s been retrofitted so I get it but it could use some updates. Overall this was a great place and I would not hesitate to stay here again. Thank you to the staff for a great stay.

Jamie and her staff are top notch! The quaint little hotel is at the end of Bourbon on the edge of the quarter. After dark, it’s the place to be with Lafitte’s blacksmith shop right across the street! We were able to sit on our balcony and watch the jazz band perform below! You won’t get better customer service in NOLA than at Lafitte Guest House!!

The hotel is very cozy, charming and is located on the more quiet side of Bourbon Street. The staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and large enough. Will definitely return on a future trip. I later found out that it has a hunted history as well. maybe next time I’ll request a hunted suite...lol Overall good experience. Thanks
