The Lafitte Guest house staff was very nice and attentive. We throughly enjoyed our girls trip during Essence Festival weekend. The hotel is close enough to the action of Bourbon Street to enjoy but far enough that your sleep is uninterrupted.

We stayed 4 nights at the Lafitte Guest House and our experience was superb. It's a historic residential home that has been converted into a small hotel of just 14 rooms with private bathrooms. Cozy, quiet (overall), and the staff is absolutely excellent. I'm going to bullet point things to make it easier: The Good: -Decent price (week nights are... More

Our room was large and lovely with a spacious balcony on Bourbon Street. We stayed here 25 years ago and loved it this time as much as last. The bathroom is a bit tiny, but that is our only complaint. If you like historic hotels, this one is a must.

Violet, Thank you so much for taking the time to write. You are correct about the historic nature of the place. So historic that it didn't have indoor plumbing originally, hence the tiny bathroom. Thank you again for writing. More

Loved staying in this quaint guesthouse. Excellent service with snacks provided and cleanliness. We had a large group and everyone was very accommodating. I loved the vintage feel and the close proximity to New Orleans hot spots. Would highly recommend!

I stayed for 7 nights here in June 2016. I am impressed with the cozy decoration, friendly and helpful service, and the excellent location. I got good advise from staff on good places to try local dishes, and what I should not miss out being in New Orleans. Royal street is just a few steps walk from the place. Riverside... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
