The Lafayette Hotel
Ranked #90 of 167 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Charming hotel close to the French Quarter but far enough to enjoy the sights. St. Charles trolley is right outside the door to carry you to French Quarter, Garden District, Lafayette Square. Suites are huge. The restaurant was closed for vacation but easy access to plenty of other choices. Just off from the Business District so able to walk the area and even at night could catch the trolley or staff able to direct you good food. Concierge even walked us to a small bar one street back from the hotel entrance. Staff was so helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better view of the older buildings.

This was a nice small hotel. The rooms were pretty clean and the furnishings were fresh. Convenient to most things in New Orleans; either a short walk or streetcar ride. Staff was very friendly. The street noise was a little loud on the front of the building and our room occasionally had a smokey smell, but otherwise a very pleasant stay. Worlds better than their sister hotel, The Place de Armes in the French Quarter.

Charming hotel, close to everything but still away from the bustle. Across the street is a streetcar stop for the St. Charles streetcar, and across the other street is Lafayette Square, a historic landmark. We traveled with our dog, a German Shepherd and the staff was really nice and welcoming.There were no issues and the dog and we felt very comfortable. The room was spacious, newly renovated. Great hotel, with character that reflects the NOLA culture and charm.

Liked: Small, charming, really nice staff, away from French Quarter and right next to the Arts District, streetcar right out front, huge suites, great happy hour.

Disliked: A bit of inconvience due to remodeling (some noise & no water for about 4 hrs. one day), the maids could have done a little better job.

It's confenient to everything. We walked to the French Quarter daily, to the Garden District, St. Louis Cemetery #1, and the WWII Museum all from the hotel. Every staff member we encountered was friendly. Our room (403) was huge and very clean. If you want modern instaed of aged patina, etc., this isn't the hotel for you, but if you want convenience, clean room, and efficient staff, stay here.

We chose this property based on price and location, in spite of the fact that some reviews were less than stellar. It was a wonderful stay in a boutique hotel in a quiet area. It was close to everything, but not in the middle of the rowdy areas. The room was so comfy, the staff so helpful and the room was a wonderful retreat at the end of a long day of sightseeing. If we ever have the opportunity to return to New Orleans, we would definitely consider staying here again.

Room Tip: Spend a little more for the suite, very spacious.

We were in room 401 and it was amazing. My wife and I normally would choose from the more popular brand name hotels but we went out on the limb and booked with this hotel. The hotel is older but still kept in great condition. The location of this hotel is convenient. Right on the St . Charles street car. Also about a 5 block walk to the main strip and bourbon st. The staff was awesome chantè was a great resource. Thanks for a wonderful first time in nawlins
