This hotel is conveniently located to all of the touristy places we wanted to go - Bourbon St., French Quarter, Canal St., Harrah's, Riverwalk/Outlet Shopping. The decor was a mix of old and new but did not present as "dated", rather as a preserved homage to the past. Denise at the front desk was SUPER AWESOME and so helpful with... More

Clean hotel and walkable distance to the convention center. A good mixture of old and new decor. Tierra at the front door was great and upgraded our room. Housekeeping and the gentleman at the door was amazing as well. Great choice

My niece and I enjoyed a five-night stay at the Lafayette, which looked wonderful online and was truly a delight in person. Beautiful, wonderfully-maintained, excellent service. Quiet, beautifully-appointed, huge, recently-renovated suite overlooking Lafayette Square, perfectly located for a stroll or streetcar ride to the French Quarter and evening streetcar rides into the Garden District and Carrollton to enjoy the lovely...

My parents offered to watch my kids for my birthday weekend but I didn't want to go too far from home so my husband & I booked a stay-cation at The Lafayette Hotel.

The rooms are absolutely stunning! I love the colors,the crown molding and the comfy beds. The restaurant is closed for renovations and the hotel doesn't have any vending machines! The lobby could use some updating some paint on the outside doors.

Beautiful classy and clean hotel. In walking distance to bourbon street but far enough away to enjoy the quietness. Great staff. Parking is valet. Beautiful balcony room. They do need to put mini refrigerator in the room so no drinks onsite. Bring your own and a mini cooler.

This is THE place to stay for a great price. A historic hotel on St. Charles Avenue with access to the street car at your doorstep. The rooms are always impeccably clean and the staff helpful as needed. The sounds of the streetcar can be heard slightly from the rooms, but given your location, that can't be avoided. If you...

Great night time clerk. Valet parking was good and attendants were awesome. Rooms somewhat small but clean. We stayed facing st Charles street so could here trollie. Pet friendly. Tv remotes did not work well. I would stay again. Nice walking to French quarter.

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel several times and found it to be very suitable to our needs. The price seemed reasonable and the rooms have always been clean.

This is a very nice hotel in a wonderful location. Although the restaurant and bar are closed on Sunday and Monday, it's close enough to other establishments to not leave you hanging.

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.
