Nice hotel for the money

Large rooms, good housekeeping services and friendly staff. Parking was a bit sketchy....Valet service was short handed or non-existent but front desk happily retrieved our car or let us park in front of the hotel for a couple of hours. No coffee pot in our coffee maker but we weren't bothered by that...maybe someone else would want to fix lousy coffee in their room instead of drinking great New Orleans coffee down the street but not us! Hotel is conveniently located to the Quarter and the access to the freeway was about 5 blocks away. I would stay at this hotel again.

Walk Everywhere from Here

Efficient, caring staff. Clean, elegant rooms. We could only book one night on-line but another night was available once we arrived. Lovely colonial hotel located within walking distance to many popular sites. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful Hotel

Had a European feel. Very comfortable, great staff, freshly painted and well maintained. Great location walking distance to the French Quarter or the Superdome and the conference center.

Perfect For Me

I travel by train and that usually involves an overnight stay in New Orleans. This hotel is midway between Union Station and the French Quarter and walkable from each. Elegant but comfortable remodel of old building. Restaurant and bar in building quite nice (with view of streetcar passing by), and many restaurants in area are good and interesting. I lucked out and was upgraded to small suite so I was in heaven for a hundred bucks. No room service, pool or the like however. If the price remains reasonable I will stay again and again.

New Orleans "the day after"

My husband and I arrived in New Orleans the day after Fat Tuesday, so the clean up crews were busy! The Lafayette Hotel had an "old world" feel when we entered the small lobby and reception desk. The person working the desk was Dwayne, and he was very pleasant. The hallway on our floor (5th) had a strange odor. Our room was adequate but dark. The curtains and the small sitting area at the foot of the bed were badly stained, the caulking was pulling out around the tub, and there were paint smatterings on the leather desk notebook. Several of the plug outlets were lose and did not charge consistently. There was a nice poster bed with steps. There was nothing "elegant about the Lafayette. Mike's, the adjoining restaurant, was very nice.

nice stay

perfect location, it´s a short walk to french quarter and bourbon street and everything else. The room was clean and had a very comfortable king-bed!! (you sleep like in heaven!) It was a little bit loud in the night, however it was possible to have a wonderful sleep. We stayed 2 nights over the new years day and therefore it was more expensive ($240/night including $30 for parking per day and $5 for wifi per day). But nevertheless a great stay and very friendly staff who gave a lot of tips!

spacious beautiful rooms, slightly dated

we were put in a suite, I'm pretty sure thats not what we paid for, it was well decorated with great furniture and very comfortable. The room was dated - old TV, fridgem fixtures, and generally in moderate repair, though the marble bathroom with old brass fixtures was very pretty. Overall, I would describe this as an old great hotel that needs some updating, but with a spacious room, was a great deal.
