This was my first stay at a B&B and I must say I was hesitant because it was built in 1841. Much to my surprise this B&B was sooo nice. Every room has been updated but they still have a lot of charm. The breakfast was very good and the lady managing it was super nice! Our room had a comfortable queen bed, microwave, 2 burner stove but no refrigerator. Our bathroom was really nice and large. They have a hairdryer and several toiletries if you need them. This was a great location as you could walk a couple of blocks and get on the trolley and they are surrounded by a lot of good restaurants if you don't mind to walk a couple of streets over from this B&B. One of my favorite things about this place was how all of the property is gated, even their parking lot! I would definitely recommend this B&B!

We’ve stayed here so many times that we’ve lost count. Beatrice the innkeeper has become a friend through the years and she treats us like family when we show up for Mardi Gras and other assorted NOLA fixes. This includes allowing us to invite friends over for visits on the porch and back garden area, which we appreciate very much. We love old and historic places so we love this place very much. However, you should know before you go that the stairs to some of the rooms are very steep, the toilets don’t always flush, the hot water takes awhile to heat up in the mornings, and paint is peeling. On the other hand, breakfast is substantial, there are five or six enclosed parking spaces that come with the price (otherwise, parking on the street is easy and free), you can walk everywhere and never move your car again, the college dorm-sized fridge is appreciated, and the warmth and caring of the staff cannot be beaten. It’s just a matter of preference.

, we learned something interesting staying here, that we like it more here than staying at very pricey Bourbon Street hotels for 2-3 times the price.
Here’s why. #1... parking, it’s easy to park here, free, plenty of spots on the street, no hassles. Parking in a nicer hotel on Bourbon Street can be $45 a night. You can walk one block from here and jump on a trolley car take it three or four stops, or about 1 1/2 miles to the main Bourbon Street area. You can buy a 24 hour ride “anytime pass” for $3. We decided to take our car our one day and boy were we sorry, two hours to park in the city in one of those pay parking lots is $25 . So much easier to enter the bourbon st area without a car. The truth is, they don’t want cars in this area of bourbon street because they don’t have room for them, they regulate the parking prices like this on purpose to keep cars out of the area so much easier to leave the car somewhere else.

#2 Retreat... Walking up and down the touristy streets in New Orleans get a little exhausting. It’s nice to retreat back a little bit into a charming bed-and-breakfast with a little history, built in 1841, A stay here comes with a lot of history and that harder to find old New Orleans charm.

#3 Staff and quality of accommodations/breakfast... Ross checked us in and Darryl prepared a VERY good free breakfast.
Ross showed us to our room and spent a little extra time sharing the history and culture of the place making sure we knew the local restaurants, how to catch the trolley, parking and anything else we needed. You could tell he was not rushing and sincere about handing out the information. Darryl took a lot of care making sure everything in the breakfast was perfect. Super polite and cordial, always offering up good information, especially about the local blues and jazz artist entertainment. The room itself was perfectly nice, not Marriott, but clean with a good mattress, ac was nice and cool, charming patio downstairs for a cup of tea.

As we walked around the local spots near our room, we laughed a little bit about how we enjoyed walking around here more than on Bourbon Street. We went to this very close by restaurant called Lulu, then explored and found a spot called tacos and beer, really fun spot.

My wife and I got the impression that these guys were really serious about providing a very nice place to stay and making their customers happy, and getting the word out.
So here was my word out :) We are already thinking about making a trip here again, not really for Bourbon St. but for this place.

I normally do my research before booking but was in a rush to make a fast reservation and booked based on the owner's pictures. My advise is to read the 1 and 2 star reviews before you book. They speak the truth! The entire place is dirty. From the exterior, to the staircase and up to the room - dirty. Inside the room (a "Deluxe King") - dirty. Sticky floor, peeling paint, scuff marks everywhere. The old houses of NOLA are quaint but this one is simply unkept and the owner should be ashamed to call it a bed and breakfast. It is a short stay boarding house with continental breakfast at best and it is in desparate need of a paint job, deep cleaning, and repairs. And the thing is that we are not picky people. I have friends who would have immediately walked out to find another place to stay.
The A/C cut on for 10 seconds and then off for about 20. On 10, off for 20... all night long! What other reviewers say about the water temp is true also. Yes, this place is less expensive than others but if you can in any way scrape together some additional money, I highly recommend booking elsewhere. If you are in New Orleans only to get drunk and lay your head on a pillow to sleep it off, then this place is probably for you. There is a homeless camp within a mile and there was such a terrible feeling after the sun went down that we made sure we were in our room. We made a joke out of the tiny thrift store television, even sending pictures to friends and family back home during our stay. My husband attempted to watch football but the ball was almost unrecognizable on the screen and we called it the mustard seed. A few good things about this stay is 1) We will certainly laugh for many years about this deluxe king at the Fairchild House Bed and Breakfast 2) No matter how badly I screw with reservations in the future, I doubt that I can get it this wrong! The pictures on the website do not reflect what you will find there so I have attached some that I took as we were leaving. Should have taken pics of the broken, tired furniture too but you get the gist.

Let's be clear, this is NOT a true B & B. It's a rickety old house broken into individual rooms with bathrooms the size you would find in a budget cruise ship with zero counter space. There was no firmness to the bed such that you wake up with a backache every day. The so called "breakfast" was a light snack approximately what you might find at a La Quinta (minus the waffles) beginning at 9 AM and no coffee was available till then. So... if you wanted coffee earlier or wanted to get an early start on your day you were pretty much on your own.

The only good thing about this place is its proximity to St Charles and easy access to public transportation.

Ignore the 1 star reviews unless you're the type of traveler who wants to spend a lot of money for an antiseptic hotel with no history or character, where you're identified simply by your room number.

This little bnb has it all. Quaint charm, great convenient location, wonderful hosts, free street parking (a rarity), safe and quiet neighborhood, delicious freshly prepared breakfast each morning, and an atmosphere that makes you feel welcome and at home, where you can sit on the expansive front porch and leave your hectic day to day life behind.

I almost always travel solo, by preference, and seek out accommodations that provide safety, ease of getting around including convenience to public transportation, and a close proximity to places I want to go in the area and sites I want to see. And above all, a place where I can relax and unwind. Fairchild House ticks all of those boxes. It's a place I'll be returning to.

The rooms were quaint, creaky, old, and a little run down. But that's what we expected and we were very satisfied with our stay.
The guy that checked us in was very helpful as to all the surrounding places to walk to and helped us in every way he could. Off street parking was also a plus. Would recommend and would stay again. Tons of character in this old building.

Only spent one night at this property with my daughter. Communication prior to arrival was great - as we were arriving late. But did not feel secure in property (first time I have ever placed a suitcase against the door). The towels were not the cleanest and the shower did not work well. The air-conditioning was very loud and kept stopping and starting during the night. One of the reasons I picked this hotel was because of the breakfasts that sounded lovely - but we were told on arrival that breakfasts did not start until 8.30 and we had to leave by 8am. We came back to New Orleans 2 days later and decided to stay at one of the larger hotels instead which was more central and only a little more expensive.

This place just brings you back in time. Staff is very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is INCREDIBLE. There's something fresh every morning. One day we had a frittata, the next day waffles, then a birthday cake... There's always fresh fruit, bread, pan brioche... Top quality food. Great value for money. Location is great, only a 10-15 mins ride on the street car.

It seems like the owner only care of making money and not investing in the place. We were at room 4. The bed was broken, the mattress was cheap, walls were dirty, ceiling cracked, the shower did not drain, floor is crooked and my phone had a larger screen than the tv.
Breakfast and location were ok.

The street parking is very plentiful. We even moved the car a few times for some short trips we took and every time we were able to park right in front of the property. Just pay attention to the signs warning you about not parking too close to street corners and don't block anyone's driveway. Parking isn't isn't honestly something to stress about in this case with this hotel. It's not an urban busy section of town. Have fun!
