My husband and I stayed at Lafitte's Guesthouse for a one night getaway . Getting and parking at the guesthouse is no problem (even though it's off Bourbon) --however that is getting there at 3pm. The staff was beyond friendly and helpful. We felt very...More

New ownership adds the perfect subtle touches to what was already a hidden neighborhood gem for lodging. The way we were treated by the owners themselves, manager and staff makes it always our first choice anytime we're in New Orleans.

Visited just after Mardi Gras and would consider it the perfect time to come, both crowd and weather-wise. The hotel itself is a very cool home style art gallery. It is indeed worn down but kind of adds to the charm of the place. Billy...More

The staff is amazing! Friendly and helpful. A wonderful, inviting place to stay. Located on Bourbon Street. Close enough to walk a few blocks to the mayhem but quiet in the evenings. Get a balcony room and enjoy the view.

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

Hi there. 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

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.

Hi, we have a lot right next to the property that is on a first come, first serve basis. The charge is $30/night and we do not allow any in and out privileges.
