Charming, luxurious, friendly and unique is the best way to describe Lafitte's Guest House which is actually a Mansion located on the quieter end of Bourbon. Each room in this mansion is decorated beautifully and like in all the old mansions, each room is sized and layed out different than the next. Poster beds, antique and vintage chandeliers, marble fireplaces, private balconies and fresh flowers in your room are the norm here. It's an upscale, shabby chic - meaning no shabbiness but vintage chic. New owners have replaced all the beds with new ones that you'll find hard to leave. Fresh coffee and biscuits made from scratch await you each morning and you'll not find friendlier owners and management anywhere else in the Quarter. Conveniently located directly across from Lafittes Blacksmith Shop and just down from the Clover Grill - the location is perfect - and it's just a few blocks to Cafe DuMonde, too. Rooms with private balconies facing the Blacksmith Shop will give you a prime viewing spot for the many carriages and ghost tours plus the fun of the Blacksmith Shop. A bonus is sitting on the balcony at dawn experiencing the sun washing over the old roof tops of the Quarter and lightening up downtown. We've visited 5 times, each time choosing a different room and each time delighted with our choice. This is a wonderful experience for those not wanting a chain hotel.
