A stay at Lamothe House takes you back to another century. Room furnishings are antique, yet up to contemporary standards. The private courtyard is filled with sub-tropical foliage with a good-sized pool at the center. Perhaps best is the location, a short walk to the clubs on Frenchman Street and the French Market, and minutes from the French Quarter. Yet, tree-lined Esplanade is reasonably quiet, even subdued. We've stayed at Lamothe House four times. This visit, a few little things fell between the cracks: in-room coffee service was not replenished, clean towels were laid on the bed, not hung, and we still miss the continental breakfast which, inexplicably, was eliminated two years ago. Nonetheless, Lamothe House remains an accommodation of choice which we would recommend enthusiastically.
