My husband and I chose the Lamothe House because of the value and the location. The Market to our left and Bourbon to our right, it was a win win situation. The staff was wonderful and extremely helpful whenever we had any questions. And we had lots of questions, from where to eat dinner to fun and wonderful things to do off the beaten path. We stayed during the tomato and zydeco festivals. The rooms were clean and tidy and wonderful given the age of the hotel. The morning breakfast was exactly what we needed to start our day, because brunch of course had to be spent at Cafe DuMonde. We changed rooms during our stay because, well the House it be haunted. Our first night we were exhausted and were quite relaxes after hurricanes at Pat O'Brians... we went to bed in total darkness and about 3 AM I woke up to every single light in our room being on, even the porch light! After shaking my husband awake asking him why ALL the lights were on, he decided it was awesome and I decided that we were going to have a new room. I explained to the front desk why I wanted a new room and they didn't even bat an eye but were really excited that we had ourselves a ghostly experience.
We have made plans to return and I will in fact be staying at the Lamothe House again. When I asked my husband if he would ever stay here again he said Absolutely! And that he had a wonderful time here and loved the staff. Thank you LaMothe House for making our trip amazing and offering such a wonderful value!
