We stayed here at the end of January. The location is close enough to walk down to the livelier blocks of Bourbon Street but be able to return to a quieter place to sleep. The staff was kind and helpful. The room was very clean. Three drawbacks. First, if you are sensitive to odors, they used an extraordinary amount of...

We stayed here as part of a wedding party. We took o we the whole house. The entire weekend was amazing. The staff was great from just the regular stuff to the beautiful wedding that was held there. I would certainly return. My only complaint was that it did get pretty warm inside during the day which makes me wonder...

2nd bedroom ok for kids or single. Small for a couple especially when the size of the shared bathroom is taken into account. Balcony and decor were fabulous!! Also not sure about electrical, my blow dryer almost caught on fire lol

room 22 was nice, but not booked as we thought we would have balcony onto Bourbon Street. Hot water for shower takes 10 minutes to get there. Must be a long ways from shower to water heater. Expect $30.00 fee for parking nest to the building.

Every time the toilet flushed, I got burnt in the shower. The hot water side dripped and burnt my foot. The floor in room 25 was slanted so I felt uneven. Very loud location, next door to Lafitte Bar. They didn't make my bed one day, which was weird. 2 closets only had 6 hanger combined - couldn't hang anything....

AVOID LAFITTE GUEST HOUSE! If we hadn't been told to pay up front for our one-week stay, we would have left the following morning. No one mentioned that by day 2 the Guest House would be undergoing renovation: public room sealed off with plastic, floors covered with paper covering, fresh paint odors permeating our guest room, no heat in lobby...

Very nice small inn, close to everything but not too close. The third floor balcony room has a great view and beautiful furnishings. Bathroom could have been a wee bit cleaner, breakfast foods could have used checking on so that the offerings remained fresh, parking could have been managed a little better. But all in all, very nice.

First thing I have to say is George, Billy and KC are the best hotel staff I have ever had the opportunity to meet and deal with. What could have been a less than desirable hotel experience was made wonderful by the hotel staff. Yes, there has been a transition, new ownership. Policy and procedures had been changed with no...

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.

“Great stay. We arrive and our room had been rented. Owner quickly spoke to front desk and asked what happened. Then took us across the street and showed us a townhouse he was putting us in for the same price we had. Very nice and professional! This could have been a bad situation but their quick response made it great! ”
