“Comfortable. Good location”
Reviewed 15 June 2011

Guest house B&B located in Lower Garden District. Friendly greeting by a gentleman named Roland. Comfortable, simply furnished room. Very clean. Easy parking on and off street. Very steep stairs to 2nd floor. If this is an issue request 1st floor room.

This bed and breakfast is a block off the green trolley line, a little SW of the Quarter.

Go into it knowing what you're getting and it's fine. Average accommodations at a fair price in a good location. Cool older house with private entrance/parking area. Little patio to hang out on, private rooms and bathrooms. Everything was clean and the food in the morning was adequate. Furniture and beds could use an upgrade, but so could almost everything in New Orleans.

Inn Keeper is nice and accessible.

We had a great time at Fairchild House. We had a conferences at the convention center and added a little fun to the trip. We had a warm welcome when we arrived. The room was perfect. Have heard complaints about the tv but we never even turned it on. Who watches tv when you are in New Orleans. The breakfast was satisfying with a nice variety. The location was a fair walk to the convention center and downtown but the trolley was great. We had no problems getting to where we needed. The price is hard to beat especially if you have a car with you. We would stay there again for sure if we go again. And I sure hope we do! Thanks for the great time!

The Fairchild House far exceeded my expectations. The room and common areas were charming and well maintained. Off-street parking in behind a locked gate was free, as was breakfast. The bathroom was updated; a new Friedrich air conditioner provided perfect climate control. There was a coffee pot and fridge in the room, as well as period furniture. During the French Quarter Festival, mediocre downtown hotels were charging $200 a night, but my quiet and comfortable room at the Fairchild House was only $79. The St. Charles streetcar to downtown is only a block away, as are numerous restaurants. After all the commotion of the French Quarter, I really enjoyed coming back to the peace, quiet, and comfort of the Fairchild House. It is not fancy, but if you would enjoy being an overnight guest in a friend's lovingly restored period home, it can't be beat.

Yeah, it sure is nice to go to the Quarter for the day and get back to peace in the evening. It was nice to have you here too. I also like the picture you took of the house! Thanks for taking the time to review the Fairchild House.

My girlfriend and I stayed three nights at the Fairchild House B&B while attending a wedding, and we were delighted both with the accommodations and the warm hospitality of the owner/manager, Beatriz. Our room (#12) was clean, charming, and comfortable with high ceilings. Beatriz went out of her way to assist in the delivery and return of my tuxedo rental and ensure that we had a wonderful stay. She is also very knowledgeable about the French Quarter and surrounding area. The hotel's location (in the Garden District) is excellent in that it is quiet and only one block from the Charles Street street car stop. We much enjoyed taking the street car to and from the French Quarter each day. We also took the street car to Audubon Park and enjoyed seeing the stately homes and magnificent live oak trees of the Garden District.

I stayed here because I was attending a convention and didn't want to spend $200 a night at the hotels recommended by the convention organisers. I stayed in one of the smallest rooms, no. 5, overlooking the quiet side street, which is fine for one person, would be a little cramped for two, though there are nice seating areas inside and outside. The convention centre is a 20 min walk, the only drawback was that I tended to meet up with people in the evening in the commercial or French quarter, and needed a taxi back. Breakfast is good, wifi free, and the owners very friendly and helpful.

I will say right off that I don't like staying in large convention hotels and that I am somewhat a cheapskate when it comes to places to stay, saving my money for restaurants. For that reason I liked this place. The staff actually got up 45 minutes earlier than their posted time in order to get the very nice breakfast ready in time for me to make it to my morning meetings at the convention center (which i walked to - it is about 15-20 minutes away by foot). Those used to glitzy re-dos of historic buildings, with a lot of spit and polish should probably not go here, but I would happily stay here again.
