We stayed here for a bachelorette party and it was a GREAT location and a beautiful boutique hotel! We booked two rooms, one was a garden view and one was the attic. Both were beautiful! The attic was especially nice, spacious, and perfect for the 10 of us to hang out! It is about two blocks down Bourbon from the... More

My two friends and I came for a girls weekend. We wanted a fun relaxing time and a nice bed. This place was so charming and cozy we almost didn't want to go do anything we had planned, almost. The beds are the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on at a hotel. The balconies, yes more than one,... More

I always enjoy my visits to LaFitte deep in the French quarter. It always has a nice mix of people and on busy weekends the crowd overflows in the street to dance and party hard. You never know who you may meet when you visit this great local bar.

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel and it was wonderful again. We stayed in room 40 which has two Queens and ample room. They offer a small breakfast in the morning and wine and snacks in the evening. It is located on Bourbon Street but not too noisy since it is away from the busy parts. If you... More

Staying at the Lafitte Guest House over all was a wonderful experience. It was my first time in New Orleans and there was no better venue to capture the ambiance of the city. My boss, Brenda Brown (originally from New Orleans), recommended Lafitte and I'm thankful she did. I will certainly recommend it to anyone who asks!

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.

With 19th Century roots this fourteen room mansion and gallery was originally the private home of the Galiese Family. Now, over a hundred years later we're dedicated to providing the best boutique hotel experience in New Orleans. We're located in the residential area of Bourbon Street & the French Quarter.

With 14 expertly appointed guest rooms, balconies overlooking Bourbon Street, and a gorgeous and serene courtyard, Lafitte Guest House is the perfect place for friends to gather, travelers to rest, adventurers to explore any time of year and any day of the week. Rooms are spacious and uniquely decorated with antiques and reproduction art from around the world all available for sale, and our gallery features paintings and prints from Russian born artist Vladimir Kush and artist Diane Millsap. We serve complimentary breakfast, including coffee, tea, biscuits, greek yogurt, and fruit every morning, and staying with us is like staying in a private French Quarter residence.
