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
We stayed here during Mardi Gras and had an absolutely fantastic stay. I love unique hotels with a history and this hotel definitely hits on both. It is located in an old mansion, which means each room is different. The hotel features a beautiful grand staircase, ornamental ceilings, chandeliers, brick walls, and antique furniture. I also love that they feature art by local artists throughout the halls and in the rooms. As an additional plus, the staff are amazing. I didn't catch their names, but the same man and woman were at the front desk for the duration of our stay and they were both very friendly and helpful. The other great thing about this hotel is its location. It is very walkable to everywhere in the quarter, and there are a grocery store, coffee shop, and multiple bars and restaurants within a block. A few caveats: We stayed in room 34, which is out back facing the courtyard rather than in the main mansion (you go out a back door from the main house and enter the room from a shared walkway/balcony). This meant that our room was VERY loud because all that is between the room and the outdoors is double french doors with giant windows. It is probably not a big deal during most times of the year but during Mardi Gras, it was loud because the room overlooks Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Bar, which at that time of year was pounding music all day and night. I imagine any room located in the main mansion would have been much quieter since their doors face a shared interior hallway. Our room was also really cold, and we couldn’t seem to get the AC/heating unit to blow hot air. Lastly, the bathroom (at least in the room in which we stayed) was quite tiny. There was lots of storage for toiletries, but you had to awkwardly inch around the toilet to get to the sink after entering the room. I do get that this is a very old building though, so they are probably restricted on the layout. I’ve seen some reviews complaining that the hotel is run down or dirty, which I disagree with. Our room was clean and yes, there were some dings on the wall, chips in the floor, etc. but that is part of the charm – you are staying in a building that is over 100 years old! We stuck our head in another room located at the front of the mansion (room 20) as it was being cleaned and it was gorgeous. Smaller than room 34 but it has a private balcony facing Bourbon Street. We’ll probably try to stay in that room next time!…
Not many places open early, so when we stumbled upon this place we were happy. Bartenders are very nice and so were the local patrons. Great bloody Mary place. Everytime we walked by the place in the afternoon and st night it was standing room only. A lot of locals go here. Great drinks.
We enjoyed our time here. They Have a great bar with an awesome bartender Tiffany. She was fun and very attentive. We had a small problem with our room and they moved us to a larger room with no extra charge. The owners care about you and they want to ensure you are very comfortable.
