A calm and elegant hotel

Posted Jul 1, 2016
A small and elegant hotel in a terrific neighborhood close to everything. The amenities list is small (valet, front desk, restaurant) but the rooms are large. The beds are comfy and spacious. It is not a cookie cutter room, and the neighborhood is both quiet and filled with everything you need and lots of historic charm. It is right on the streetcar line and a short walk to the French Quarter.

Nice hotel in warehouse district

Posted May 30, 2016
Pros: Desi Vegas is a wonderful restaurant located onsite! The housekeeping staff, reception, and valets were absolutely WONDERFUL. Very friendly!
Location: This is in a good location in the warehouse district, but a little far from the french quarter and riverfront. It requires lots of walking!
We enjoyed our stay at the Lafayette Hotel. This is a smaller hotel with a fabulous restaurant, Desi Vegas, onsite. It does require heavy walking to get to the french quarter, but there is a streetcar stop nearby. The staff was courteous and we were able to make dinner reservations by calling the front desk. The rooms are small but very clean and quiet. I would recommend this hotel to couples who are active and don't mind walking to attractions and like to be in a quieter part of town. We went to the bar located in the hotel and were disappointed in the service there. We sat at the almost empty bar for ten minutes before we were even acknowledged by the bartender. Other than that, our experience here was enjoyable. It's a truly great hotel and we'll stay here again next time we are in NOLA!

easy walk to French Quarter

Posted May 13, 2016
Just blocks away from Bourbon Street. Boarded trolley in front of Hotel, then rode all around town, just to see the sights; everything from J-Square, cemeteries, Garden District; plenty to do and see. Lafayette Park next to hotel was really cool.

Milking a grand old building?

Posted May 10, 2016
Everything was OK, not great. If we paid list price, I would be angry. Heavily discounted, I don't feel so bad.

Centrally located stately

Posted Apr 26, 2016
Pros: Like that traditional old downtown hotel
Location: Jazz fest, good restaurants, close to WW11 museum, French Quarter. Trolly line right outside door.
Greet by doorman on arrival, front desk very helpful on how to get around. Restaurant had good food. Went for the Jazz Fest and hotel location was great for making all connections we needed to get to event. I would return here on a future visit.
