Convenient place to sleep

This is better called a pension. It's a nice old building, rooms were clean, comfortable, reasonably spacious. This is a small place, not a standard hotel chain there's no gym, pool, or even breakfast. If you need Wifi, make sure you get a room near the center (elevators). The big thick walls reduce the signal to mostly unusable at the ends of the hallways.

Close and more affordable

Convenient location with a 10-15 minute walk to all major tourist areas. Parking is expensive but there are lots close by that are cheaper to keep your car overnight. Room is a good size, very clean with a nice bathroom. The only thing I would've liked are more comfortable pillows (too soft) and a bed comforter (sheets/blankets were thin).

great location, friendly staff

we were looking to stay near the french quarter but not in it. this hotel was nice, cleanly and staffed with friendly people who were happy to provide good recommendations. most importantly, it was a short walk to the french quarter and a reasonable walk to magazine street and the garden district. to go anywhere else, it was easy to grab a cab or hop on the street car that stopped right out front. the only drawback was that at times the street car could be a little loud and you could hear it from the hotel room. but it didn't keep us up at night. i would definitely recommend the lafayette hotel.

Wasn't what I expected

Not so great. The rooms are small and out of date badly. The tv did not work at all. The room kept making strange sounds.

New Years in Nawlins

The hotel is a beauty. Perfect location to be near, but, not in the middle of everything; ie; the Warehouse District, the French Quarter, the Waterfront and the Canal Street shops. A very nice restaurant, Desi Vega's, on premise, too. But, Herbsaint, Luke and Pesce are all within walking distance. Rouse's Supermarket is also nearby for easy groceries. See the Roosevelt Hotel's Sazerac Bar for libations.
