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!

This romantic three story 1840's mansion on Bourbon Street is authentic and has it all: crystal chandeliers, balconies, luxurious bedding, plush towels, and original art! Oh, and I forgot a beautiful courtyard and complimentary wine and cookies when you check in. The staff is very friendly and makes you feel at home, and you have the run of the kitchen... More

We loved our room! It was so nicely decorated. I would call it opulent. The staff at the Lafitte Guest House was incredible and so accommodating. The bed was comfy and I felt right at home. The bathroom was so tiny! But that was the only not amazing part of the room. And, though this was the most haunted room... More

rlolly02, Thank you for that wonderful review. We could not be happier to hear that your stay was enjoyable. The reason for the tiny bathroom, and you might want to keep this in mind when booking future reservations at Guest Houses around the country, is that they had to retrofitted into a building that did not originally have indoor plumbing....

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.

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.
