So cool. Very much in NOLA and get to meet locals-- very cool people. Lamothe House has a main building plus 2- 3 other houses near it. We ended up in a very NOLA style house behind the main building. We were upgraded from a small room with king bed to a king suite... worked for us! Skinny row or...

Stayed at this hotel almost 20 years ago. Enjoyed it then and glad we chose it this time. Just outside the French Quarter and an easy and safe walk everywhere. Just use your good sense and don't come home, walking, at 2 am, all alone! Stayed in the addition behind the hotel. Rooms were very roomy, historic and charming. Sure...

My husband and I wanted to stay in the real New Orleans. The Lamothe House was charming and grand at the same time. The bed was comfy and clean. The bathroom as small but also very clean. The courtyard pool was like a little oasis in the hot afternoon.

The Lamothe House is beautiful, quiet, spacious and friendly. Everything you can ask for in a hotel. We stayed at the back house with a 3 room "room" and it was as stated above. The staff was extremely helpful and went out of their way to give their opinions of what to do and see in the area. It is...

There's a lot of good things to say about Lamothe House, but unfortunately we ended up in Room #116, which should simply not be rented out as a hotel room. The room is entered from Kerelec Street, not from the main property, with the bed a few feet from a busy, loud street with lots of Frenchman Street traffic. We...

The stairs leading up to reception, on the second floor, are dangerous to negotiate with luggage, and without, when you are no longer in the first flush of youth! I suggest placing reception on the first (ground) floor, and installing an elevator to the second floor, there is room.

We stayed at Lomothe House for our honeymoon. The room was big, clean and comfortable. The staff are super friendly and everything was as advertised. We even had nice surprise to find a jacuzzi tub in our bathroom. Staying in the French Quarter comes with a risk of noise and large crowds. While we were within steps of all the...

If I this review was on the hotel staff alone, this would definitely be a 5. I am giving the hotel a 3 due to our room. We chose a period decorated room on the 3rd floor of the main house as it had a separate bedroom off the master for our daughter. The room as warm at night and...

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the ancient oaks of Esplanade Avenue, the ornate architectural detail of the past meets modern comfort and convenience in our restoration of the historic Lamothe House hotel. Featuring an elaborate courtyard accented by mature landscaping, a garden pond, and a refreshing pool, peace and relaxation are just steps away from the thrill the Crescent City has to offer.In addition to 30 guest rooms refinished in traditional style, five Grand Antique Suites have been preserved from the original 1839 construction of the home of Jean Lamothe, a wealthy sugar cane planter of French descent. Furnished with antique furniture & artwork, the detail and charm that exemplifies old New Orleans is accessible to today’s traveler.Not to be overlooked is the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood the Lamothe House calls home. Here visitors will find Frenchmen Street, often referred to as “the local’s Bourbon Street”, which features some of the best local music and cuisine found in the French Quarter.Whether it’s your first or your next visit to the Big Easy, find the authentic New Orleans experience you are searching for at the Lamothe House. ... more   less
