We like hotels that are unique, in good locations, and well priced. The Lafayette met all of those critera. We started out trying to book at one of its sister hotels in the French Quarter, but it was sold out. The reservation page showed all the hotels in this group, and the Lafeyette was one of the choices. The location turned out to be perfect for us, we were able to walk to the French Quarter as well as the WWII Museum. My youngest loved that the street car stop was right in front of the hotel.
The staff was extremely nice. We especially appreciated the man who worked a the front desk in the evenings. Our room was a very nice size and had a little bar/fridge area which was great since we had our children with us.
The bathroom was fine in size but could use a bit of updating.
The age of the whole place made it seem a bit dingy, but it also gave it lots of character. We liked staying somewhere that made you feel like you were in New Orleans, and not some chain motel that looks the same the world over.
Our room had a small balcony overlooking the park, which was really nice.
My husband was a little bit leery about taking children to New Orleans, but we had an amazing time. We spent 4 days in the city and could have easily filled another 4-5. I wouldn't hesitate to stay in this hotel again or any of its sister hotels
