The Hotel Orleans is historic and certainly showing its age. We enjoyed our stay. Dauphine Street and the immediate neighborhood are deteriorating. Our room was clean and the balcony a great place to sit outside. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly, and very helpful. Elaine at the front desk was great and made many arrangements for tours, cab rides, restaurant choices, and things to do.
We stayed here for 4 days in July 2021. Our room, #16, had a deep claw foot tub which I loved, and a decided tilt to the uneven floor, which I didn’t love. It’s an OLD house, full of charm and character and antiques, but also some blemishes and quirks and a faint smell of wood rot. By far the best part of this place was the lovely Daryl who runs the breakfast room, and treats each guest like they’re family. The breakfast was good, but his friendly demeanor and great suggestions for restaurants and activities was even better. The location is good. We arrived via Amtrak and it was a $12 fare for the approximate 1.2 mile distance. You’re only a block or so from a street car stop. You’re within walking distance from the WWII Museum, which was STELLAR. If you go there, try the nearby Cochon Butcher for lunch- Daryl recommended it, and it was superb. Also check out Lulas which is very close - really good food, and decent prices. I ran each morning in the park nearby. There’s a cool statue at one end of an Irish woman who took care of orphans. Lots of homeless people in the park, but it felt safe in the early morning when I was running. But New Orleans is HOT, far hotter than I’d expected, so bring a water bottle. You’ll see some little bright green lizards in the foliage if you look closely and are lucky. Enjoy the Fairchild House B &B. We sure did!…
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.
This b and b is not too easy to find as there is no sign. It consists of three old houses and is quite quirky. Our room 18 was on the ground floor with its own entrance . The beds are a bit old but everything worked and the old fashioned bathroom had lots of towels and was fine. Breakfast is simple though on our third morning we got eggs. Beatriz the owner is very helpful as was Giero , Erica and Ross. We were definitely glad to be staying in the area which was very near the streetcar. It was lovely to escape back here in the evening.
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.…
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.
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!…
This is an excellent room with a comfortable bed, a mini refrigerator, and coffee maker. The staff went out of their way for us. The room and facilities were clean. The breakfast was excellent. This is a good location, close to public transportation, and many great restaurants are within walking distance. There is a good tavern, pizza place, and BBQ nearby (walking distance).
I was really looking forward to staying here as it was a getaway from the kiddos with my husband, The place had charm and was in a quiet location but close to the streetcar and restaurants. We found free street parking very close to the house. Ross checked us in and showed us on a map some great places to eat and explore. He was super friendly and welcoming. It was going fantastic....until Ross took us to our room. We were in the room with a full sized bed, room #9, I believe. As soon as he opened the door and I got a glimpse in the room, my heart sank terribly. Cobwebs on the ceiling, tv tray for a nightstand, worn rugs on the floor, and dust all over the floor and baseboards, and towels that had seen one too many washes. I told myself that I could make this work. It would just be like my days of staying in old hotels in Europe. The difference with the hotels in Europe is that the beds are actually comfortable. I couldn't sleep a wink due to god-awful busted bed and the curtains covering the A/C window unit blocking any cool air from coming in to our room on a 90 degree night. It was literally one of the worst nights that I have experienced since staying in a hostel in Europe. This place is not a Bed & Breakfast, it is a glorified hostel. I hate to be so negative because the staff was so awesome and the rest of our stay was refunded after we refused to spend another night at this place but everyone needs to know what this place is actually like. I believe that the beds in other rooms may be somewhat better according to reviews but we got the crappiest of the crappy at this location. This place has charm and potential but the owners seem to not care too much about the room that we were in. For the amount that we paid we chose to spend $15 more and stay at a much more livable and comfortable location.…
My husband & I were excited to stay at a charming B&B during our wedding weekend in New Orleans. The reviews seemed promising, & we are not persnickety people - just wanted somewhere clean & comfortable to lay our heads between adventures in & around NOLA. Unfortunately, this place was a huge miss. I do want to commend them for accommodating our super late check-in. The staff were very friendly & the breakfast spread was nice & convenient each morning...a bit better than Continental but not what should be expected at a bed & breakfast - that title is truly misleading. Now for the bad, & there is plenty. This was a budget-friendly option, true, but upon entering the room on the first night, the smell of human urine smacks you in the face like a really unpleasant brick. This was a cool March evening but the room was muggy & I really can't overstate how awful the odor was. I understand an extremely old building will smell musty - that, I expected - but the stench in this room was unacceptable. Power receptacles were limited & some were very clearly a hazard, with broken sockets & scorch marks around them. The bathroom left a lot to be desired, with so many patch jobs to the caulk around the tub that there was hardly room for toiletries on the ledges. The 'cold' handle in the shower was broken so you had to kind of wiggle it around for it work. The toilet requires a seat belt so that you don't fall off - that's how unlevel the floor is. The carpet & rugs were disheveled & visibly dirty - we wore shoes at all times inside the room. The mattress wasn't completely horrible compared to everything else, but the bed itself was extremely creaky just rolling over. Bed linens & bath towels seemed clean but the wash cloths were clearly very old - thin & unraveling. The clothes we unpacked into the dresser came out suspiciously damp; I assume because the air conditioning we ran constantly in an attempt to keep the smell at bay couldn't reach them inside the drawers. Most every surface just seemed dingy & we avoided touching everything we could. Perhaps we just got very unlucky with room #4 but I honestly can't understand how they are comfortable putting guests in a room in that condition. We didn't complain because most of it was tolerable & what could they possibly have done about the stench emitting from every surface in the room? The building is very close to the streetcar line which is handy, & the neighborhood is quiet & seems very safe. This could be a really nice place but it seems whomever owns it has gotten complacent & let their standards fall well below what is acceptable at any price. Skip this one & spend a couple bucks to stay somewhere else, folks.…
