A little schitzophrenic

Posted Oct 27, 2014
Pros: Location, staff
Cons: Upgrade bathroom. Improve lighting in room.
Location: Great location, warehouse district, quarter, terrific restaurants nearby
Great location, easy walk to Quarter, Conv. Ctr. Public areas clearly refurbished and well maintained. Room was a bit strange w/ nice built in wood fixtures, worn furniture, excellent new bed, inadequate lighting, excellent internet connection, bathroom badly in need of update. Superb staff!

Peacefully close to the Vieux Carre

Posted Oct 21, 2014
Pros: Simple, old world feel, very pleasant staff. Loved having a combination safe in the room.
Cons: Drinks in the refrigerator would have been nice, or a hotel bar.
Location: Right on Lafayette Square with convenient access to the French Quarter, the Warehouse District, the WWII museum, the superbowl colliseum, and more....
about a 15 minute walk to the French Quarter, convenient to the insanity, but in a peaceful place. Felt perfectly fine walking home from a night in the old quarter back to the hotel.

Central Location

Posted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: Central location in nice part of town
Cons: Basic facilities and housekeeping.
Location: Near to French Quarter and on street car route. Great to take the streetcar for its full trip - only $3 for a day pass. Much less for seniors.
Hotel was pleasant and friendly providing the basics. No food facilities on site, bars rarely open, housekeeping only cleaned the coffee maker once in 5 days.

Nice classic hotel in a good street

Posted Oct 8, 2014
The stay was really good, but we stayed in the room 405 and the sofa bed was broke and super uncomfortable. Besides that is safe and nice area.

New Orleans visit

Posted Oct 2, 2014
Pros: We loved the location. Adjacent to a beautiful park. Access to the trolly. Walking distance from either the French Quarter or the convention area.
Cons: Our room was recently renovated, but they were working (and painting) the unit next door. Wi-Fi was often unavailable.
Location: Ride the street car to the Garden District, walk to the French Quarter or to Harrah's Casino
We travelled to New Orleans so that I could attend a conference and tradeshow. My wife had the opportunity to accompany me and to spend some time doing touristy things. I booked the hotel bassed upon location and price.

Lafayette Hotel was a great experience.

Posted Sep 23, 2014
Pros: I liked the fact that it is almost 100 years old. The ambiance took me back in time. I sat in my room wondering what had happened in 100 years.
Cons: Nothing, except continuing to finish the beautiful restoration and remodeling that has begun.
Location: Canal Street & the French Quarter, Bourbon Street, The Aquarium, Bus Tours of New Orleans, The Steamboat Natchez, Trolley car, Harrah's Gaming, etc.
We arrived in New Orleans and from the time that we set foot at the Lafayette Hotel we were treated like royalty. They were very accommodating, helping us with valet parking and getting a luggage cart for us, loading it and delivering and unloading in our room, getting ice for us, more towels....anything we needed. The staff was awesome and helped us with anything we asked for. I cannot say enough good things about the hotel, staff and good customer service. We will always choose to stay at the Lafayette Hotel when visiting New Orleans. They made our experience great!!!
