My daughters 21st birthday and NOLA French Quarter was the destination. We didn't realize that Mardi Gras festivities began that week but it was all good. We were far enough down Bourbon street that it didn't really bother us. The staff was VERY friendly and...More
We stayed for only one night but wished we could have stayed longer! I was so worried, after researching other hotels for days, that we'd end up in a less than appealing place. This was not the case at all! Lafitte is clean, bright, comfortable...More
From the online photos, this hotel looks lovely. They must have the best photographer ever. Inside, you can see hints of the former glory of the property but there has been little done to restore or maintain said glory. From walking down hill into the...More

I'm sorry you were disappointed with your experience at Lafitte Guest House. Some of our bathrooms are quite small but it does differ widely in each bedroom. We have been unable to renovate each bathroom due to the cost and extensive labor with the building...More
Loved this place! Great owners, great staff. Had a room on the 3rd floor with the big balcony for doing a great bit of people watching. We were there for a wedding that was done on the balcony as well. They just recently added a...More

Happy you enjoyed staying with us! We hope to see you again in the future.
I loved this little hotel! The staff are beyond helpful and kind! I like that you’re on Bourbon street but away from the craziness. I also love the character of the rooms. Some details in the room are a bit dated but it was clean...More
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.

Each room does not have a balcony. There is a shared balcony off the kitchen. The back rooms are very small- the slave quarters- that is where I stayed. The main rooms in the house are quite large and have large... More
Each room does not have a balcony. There is a shared balcony off the kitchen. The back rooms are very small- the slave quarters- that is where I stayed. The main rooms in the house are quite large and have large doors and high ceilings - but it is an old historic building, so the bathrooms can be small. I hope you have a wonderful trip. Be sure to do a cocktail tour or ghost tour- they are so fun.

It's very quiet since it's just past the bar section of Bourbon. You can occasionally hear a bit from the Blacksmith's bar right across the street, but it isn't bad. We were there on a very busy weekend and it was fine.
