Our room was pleasant and clean, bed was comfortable, breakfast was good with a variety of breads, cereals, fruit, yogurt, ham and cheese, and very good coffee. Fairchild House is just a block and a half from the St. Charles streetcar line. We parked our car in the gated lot and took the streetcar or an Uber everywhere we wanted... More

We stayed for 2 days..the beds were comfortable..breakfast was good...the building was in need of some work..but clean. We were a short walk from the trolley..which made it very easy to get to the French Quarter..I wouldn't recommend driving to the French Quarter...IF you find a parking spot it is very expensive...overall this was a good place to stay...

I got a groupon for $55 a night which made it worthwhile but we had a few issues. I was on a girls trip with my 7 year old little girl. The room we stay in (room 7) was clean, spacious and comfortable but the shower didn't work at all so we had to just take baths. The breakfast was... More

My husband and I recently stated here and were sadly disappointed. We received and email asking our estimated arrival time and we have a specific time. Upon our arrival we were not greeted by the innkeeper, but by a friend. The man was very nice and helpful. He was the best part of the stay and he didn't even work... More

The Fairchild House is located just outside the Garden District. We chose this area because we did not want the noise and commotion of the French Quarter and wanted a safe neighborhood. The premises are behind locked gates. Parking is very limited, only 5 spots. We were happy that we were able to get one since we had bikes on... More

Everything in the Guesthouse is old, the furniture, the fixtures & fittings. But it's old in the best possible way. If you're staying in New Orleans, you should stay in one of it older buildings, not a corporate chain. The staff here are so friendly & full of local knowledge. It's a hard place to leave. The Guesthouse & Staff... More

This is a well preserved and wonderfully decorated bed and breakfast. It is close to restaurants and places to see but far enough away so there's no all night partying. The breakfast was a bit basic and as lovely as the house is there are tradeoffs when you have a house built in 1841, like tiny bathrooms. The price though... More

My sister and I went to New Orleans,my 1st time. Neither one of us knew anything about the city other than the normal everyone drinks way too much in the French Quarter. I was not impressed with downtown. Now if you stay at the Fairchild House, you won't be sorry! Ronald greeted us the night we arrived and was full... More

Located on the edge of the Garden District, this B&B packs southern charm and flair. On a trip with my daughters, the double double room was the perfect fit. The beds were comfy and clean. With a private entry facing the courtyard, my vehicle was just around the corner in a securely gated area. This is huge in a city... More

I think "sad" is the perfect word for Fairchild B&B. It has the potential to be the perfect place to stay. It is an historic home. It is filled with nice antiques. It is 1.5 blocks to walk to the trolley. It is quiet. That being said, it is also in very poor condition. It needs renovations. The beautiful wood... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
