Almost didn't write this review because i didn't want anyone else to find out how good this place was in case we couldn't get a room next time. Each room is unique and the style is old world brown stone new york, with a hint of a 1950's brothel vibe. Great bathrooms. Make sure to ask about the best rooms...

We ended our trip along the East Coast in NYC for my boyfriend's 40th birthday. He had stayed here for work once before and fell in love with the unique style and historic yet eclectic vibe. We had a bit of a snag when we first arrived with the booking- while the rooms on the ground floor are very nice,...

To get a sense of what Lafayette House is all about, read the previous reviews. The building and accoutrements ARE pretty special. It is not for everyone but serves a unique need in NYC....much more like a private house than a hotel. The downside is that a hotel set-up like this requires GREAT management and staff. The longtime manager was...

I've stayed in several hotels in NYC and I will never stay anywhere else but the Lafayette House ever again! It's a beautiful hotel in a great location. I was traveling with two teenages and our room had a queen sized bed and they brought in a very comfortable air mattress. The room is very large for a NYC hotel...

If you want a concierge telling you where to go, and hot and cold running lattes and a spa with an in-house masseuse, this isn't the place for you. But if you like the privacy and peace of being in a real house, sleeping in a huge room (suite-sized, really), right smack bang in Noho just a stroll from Soho...

The most fabulous room we've ever stayed in. Had soooo much character and warmth. Perfect location, perfect atmosphere and perfect service. We didn't want to leave and will definitely go back!

Being an avid traveler I consider myself savvy in the process of choosing Hotels. My standards are quite high and I expect a great deal from the staff down to the quality of soap. I was hesitant to stay at a boutique hotel in NY as it is a departure from my usual mainstream choice, but the location was unbeatable....

this place was a real find. In the East Village with an excellent wine bar next door. We were upgraded to a room with a terrace (unfortunately it rained!). Nice touches including free bottle of wine, lovely toiletries, extremely comfortable bed. Not cheap but we loved it.

The hotel is in an excellent location between the NYU/village and the East Village. I was in NYC to enjoy the nightlife and shopping, not to sight-see. This is an old old building, 1848, "Gangs of New York" era if memory serves. This means that things are old and it is decorated in a similar style. If you are not...

I recently stayed at the Lafayette House in New York City. I saw the reviews online and was convinced it sounded like a very nice new boutique hotel. Overall the reviews were overrated and you can definitely do much better for a similar price. Pluses: 1. Great neighborhood/location downtown 2. Nice sized room with a working fireplace, chandelier and sitting...
