We stay here for the French Quarter Festival every year, and it was perfect as always! They treat you like family and you are always happy to be there. The art and furnishings make the experience that much better and the beds are so comfortable!

My wife and I stayed here for two nights after a cruise and had never been to New Orleans before. For first-timers, this place is perfect. Located a few blocks from the craziness (but next door to an awesome, lively bar) this house is in an excellent location. Although check-in time is at 4pm, we called earlier in the morning... More

The Lafitte Guest House is a nice quaint New Orleans boutique hotel (B&B) located on Bourbon Street but about four blocks or so from the frenzy of the partying and beads. It was close enough to walk in a few minutes but far enough away to escape the loud parties. The Lafitte Blacksmith Bar is across the street. Everything at... More

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.
