This is my second time staying here and I've enjoyed it. Clean rooms, reasonable prices and great location to see the Mardi Gras parades. If you are sensative to noise maybe not for you during Mardi Gras but if you want to be in the middle of the action it's a great place.

This is a great hotel. It is close enough to walk easily to everything yet far enough from the hassle. Rooms -clean and well kept.Bathrooms-large and modern. Staff- polite and prompt. Tram just in front of the hotel yet not too loud.

My boyfriend and I stayed there last year. We enjoyed it a lot, it was very lovely. The service was great, the location is quite and very easily accessible from all the local attractions by train of foot.

This is a lovely hotel...great location and nice rooms. However, please be sure to ask for a room away from the street. The sound of the trolley will keep you awake. We really appreciated the extra help from the valet parking guys!

Thank you for choosing the Lafayette Hotel and taking the time to share your feedback. Our location on the historic St. Charles street car line is convenient for exploring the city, but unfortunately does produce some noise. We recommend guests who are sound sensitive request rooms either on our higher floors (3-6) and/or request to not face St. Charles Avenue.... More

I enjoyed my stay at The Lafayette Hotel. Very warm and friendly atmosphere. Close to everything and in walking distance of the French Quarters and the Mississippi River. Trolley rides directly in front of hotel on St. Charles. Great opportunity to get up and close with New Orleans! Two thumbs up!

My wife and I stayed at the Lafayette for a weekend getaway. The room was nice andjust been refurbished. The room was small like others have mentioned, but nothing that bothered us. When you come to New Orleans generally you don't come to stay in your room, so as long as I have a bed and room to move around... More

Great location, beautiful building, lovely staff, within walking distance of Bourbon Street, WWII Museum, Convention Center, etc. No dressers and a small room, so all clothes had to either stay in the suitcase or be hung in the small closet. Bar and restaurant were both closed when we were there. Nice breakfast spot down the block and great bar half... More

Beautiful hotel. Nice appointed rooms. Bathroom was nice and had great showers to soothe you after traveling. The room was very clean and tidy. Our room had a balcony and that was the best room choice. We got to experience the sights and sounds of New Orleans. Valet parking was helpful.

Had a beautiful suite that was spacious and very nice with old New Orleans charm. Chose hotel due to ability to bring dog which was nice. Walkable to French Quarter and Superdome. Great restaurant. Definitely not luxurious with gym and top notch staff but good value.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
