Historical charm

Posted Apr 16, 2018
Great location on the quieter end of the French Quarter, and one block from the venues on Frenchmen St. The main structure was built in the 1800’s and houses the Office on the 2nd floor along with 5 Grand Suites with period furnishings. Three floors. No elevator. We stayed on 1st floor, Room 101. Beautiful and spacious room with tiny bathroom. Windows face Esplanade and do not open. Overall, the room was lovely, but I will now say over priced due to issues with cleanliness (floors mainly, corners, slatted doors) that lacked thoroughness. And surface maintenance seemed lacking. Hole in painting. Rickety stair railing. There was a lack of attention to details. Although, I will say, this is not uncommon in French Quarter accommodations. The size of Grand Suite 101 was amazing for the Quarter. Parking is off-street, gated, behind the property, & $30 per day. Nice courtyard with pool/hot tub, tables, loungers, and outdoor bathroom. Several other newer annexes on the property as well, with modern furnishings. Room 120 seemed nicely situated with a semi-private outdoor patio in an alcove. I’ve stayed in the Quarter over a dozen times and this guest house rates high on the list with other period properties visited.

Beautiful, beautiful accommodations

Posted Mar 30, 2018
This was my second stay at Lamothe House. I requested the same room I'd had before and they very graciously gave it to us. It's the most beautiful hotel room I've ever had. It's spacious and comfortable, and although we grinned at the small tub/shower combo (there's no stretching out in the bath unless you're 2), it's lined with marble and the showerhead was plenty high (I'm 5'8"), and higher than a number of chain hotels I've stayed in. I didn't give it a 5 because there was a little noise from the street which is just a few feet from this particular room. I'm used to sleeping in a room that's always extremely quiet (I can't even hear it raining), so others probably wouldn't even notice.

Charming Retreat in French Quarter

Posted Mar 29, 2018
Pros: History, location, pleasant staff. Nice to be able to have a smoke in the outdoor area.
Location: There is a local church - St. Anna's Episcopal - that had an amazing Sunday worship service - followed by boiled crawfish!.
We chose this lodging because it was charming and historical home in the French Quarter, but away from the noise and tourists (yet a short walk to all main attractions in the Quarter). We had a very nice period room in what had been the original home, overlooking a courtyard with a fountain. There was also a pool to enjoy. We were on the Esplanade which was in residential neighborhood close to some great small local restaurants.

Perfect location

Posted Mar 25, 2018
Right at the edge of the French Quarter, this hotel makes it easy to walk to a lot of fun places, but still gives you a space to get away from the crowds. I liked that it was also close to Frenchman Street, and the fantastic music that can be found there. The gated parking lot was nice, and easy for me to get an oversized vehicle in and out of. I do not recommend towing a trailer through the tiny streets of the French Quarter. :D

The house the hotel lobby and some rooms are stationed in look quaint and have a beautfiul hsitoric New Orleans esthetic, however my room was housed behind the pool in a trailer-like room setup up on a corridor leading to the busy back gate. We were sandwiched between two other rooms and you could hear every movement and word in those rooms, along with all the noise from passerbys entering and exiting the property. Along with the 3 and 4 am outdoor converstions and revelry outside the property.

Amazing hotel in a great location

Posted Mar 12, 2018
Would highly recommend staying here! The hotel was beautiful especially the courtyard and the room was very nice. The staff were very friendly and the location of the hotel was perfect. It was super close to Frenchman St. and we could even hear the jazz music from our room. It's close enough to the French Quarter that we could walk, yet removed enough that we didn't have to deal with the constant craziness of a touristy area. I would definitely recommend staying here if you're visiting New Orleans.

Authentic New Orleans

Posted Mar 10, 2018
You can stay in a Delta or Hyatt, but then you could be staying anywhere in the world. When we stayed at Lamothe House we really felt like we were living a piece of New Orleans’s history. The hotel itself is an old mansion, with rooms facing onto a beautiful inner courtyard with a pool. It’s not for people who want sterile & uniform; stairs are crooked and some of the paint peels, but to us this was part of its charm. It is quiet and peaceful although Frenchman Street- with jazz and bars - is a two minute walk around the corner. You can walk from the hotel in either direction on Royal Street and see the best of New Orleans. It really felt like we were off the main tourist track here. Finally, last but not least, desk staff were amazing! Justin was a real sweetheart; going above and beyond for us. He even shared all his secrets about the best places to eat and things to see. Lamothe House was a large part of the reason we loved NOLA. We will be back!
