"Nice hotel only 3 blocks from French Quarter"
Hotel was very nice and clean and staff was absolutely awesome. The only thing I would've liked the hotel to have is some type of area to get some ice, water, soda and/or snacks to buy. Other than that it was well worth the stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Going back home was not fun"
My wife and I are locals from New Orleans, but we currently live overseas. We were back home for a while and decided to stay in town. The reviews seemed like this was a diamond in the rough. Well, it was rough. Before I say anything else, the service was great. The employees were all friendly and helpful. The serious issues were noise. The hotel is […] old, and another commenter stated the walls were paper thin. Well, paper thin would have been better than what we had. We had a room next to us that was adjoined through double doors. We heard everything in every room around us. Every door opening, hair dryer, toilet flush, tv that was in any room adjacent to us we heard. Loudly. The St. Charles streetcar came by and it sounded like it was in our room. The windows and wall had no proper insulation and you could hear people talking outside the hotel like you were there. Then there was construction outside the hotel that started at 6 am that woke us up....not that we'd slept very much. The bathroom was grimy and hadn't been updated in what seemed like years. Oh, and lest I forget, the wifi was $5 a night and it couldn't be used. You could connect, but it was at best 1 bar and you couldn't actually load anything. We were told "that's just how it is".

"Perfectly good hotel"
The staff were very friendly and really went out of their way to make things good. The room is a little bit dark (they said they will be doing a remodel to upgrade the room lighting) and there was a weird whistling in our ventilation system...not enough to keep us awake, but enough to notice. They said they'd try to track it down. But the hotel itself […] is quite nice and the location/price ratio is terrific. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient Location, Average Hotel"
The location of this hotel is hard to beat if you have business in the downtown area. The hotel is clean and the bed was comfortable. Service was average, overall. It should be noted, however, that it the service is likely on par by the standards for New Orleans, where customer service is lacking in most places. The amenities of this hotel are pretty […] light.

"Great knowledgeable friendly staff!"
This place was great the bed was very comfortable I wanted to stay another night just for the bed I heard no outside noise or inside noise like rooms around me. When I checked in the staff helped me up to the room with my luggage and valet parked my car for about $32.00. Very friendly and outspoken. When I checked out the staff came and got my things […] and pulled my car around the front. I have no complaints about this stay. When I left the person at the desk helped me to get back to I-10 cause I was completely turned around. I highly recommend this hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice place over all. Only issue was you can hear through walls really easy. Woke up to the guest checking out in the next room. Sounded like they were in out room. I'm sure we kept them up all night. Sorry.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Aftermath of Mardi"
Hotel was excellent bed could be more comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Mardi Gras parade"
Wonderful Thursday night parades! This hotel is perfect for family Mardi Gras. Also, our bed was supremely comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was there during Mardi Gras so it's not fair to grade the hotel at that time. Only thing I was not happy with was a lack of a microwave in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had a very restless sleep. They were tearing up the road just outside our window. All nite long jack hammers and trucks backing up. No one mentioned this at all. Even after check in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good CBD location, no-frills"
Great location in Central Business District. Walk to French Quarter is a little long, about ten minutes, walk to anywhere in CBD is very easy and quick. Located on Mardi Gras parade route. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and fairly spacious, but had less amenities than expected--had to unplug lamps for a power outlet for my laptop, […] only one ice machine for entire hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We loved the location. Didn't want to be in French quarter due to noise. This hotel was perfectly situated in a quiet area yet close enough to walk to almost anything. Trolley came right in front of door also. We had a wonderful time. Everyone was very nice! We had a two room suite and it was clean and quiet. Loved the water pressure in shower! There […] was also a refrigerator which wasn't mentioned in ads. Nice surprise! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lafeyette at NOLA"
We are fans of the Valentino Hotels; and the Lafeyette was a new experience for us. There aren't many rooms, but, the rooms are large. The NOLA attractions were accessible either by foot or trolley. The staff was friendly. The rooms were clean and well-restored. The bed was in good condition.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Classy, clean, well located. A pity that they dont serve breakfast but they have great coffee in the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
We only stayed one night but really enjoyed it. Hotel is a beautiful traditional style New Orleans. All of the employees were very nice and helpful. My bag was lost at the Airport and wasn't delivered to 4:30am.. Someone called and brought it up immediately. Was only a six block walk the Canal and Bourbon Street. Front Desk person even gave us discount […] tickets to a great restaurant too. Will stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming small hotel"
Best deal in the big easy. A Wonderful staff, very helpful and friendly. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Within walking distance of lots of New Orleans sites and places to eat. Construction noise was a little loud and got us up early. Nice place to stay overall, added bonus staff were very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient to court"
Very nice rooms. Right on the street car line, so bring ear plugs. No room service and the restaurant does not serve breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent value for the money"
The hotel is kept clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Best thing about the hotel is location. If you stay at this hotel you can walk to the Superdome in 5 minutes plus you can take the bus from the airport and walk to the hotel in less than 5 minutes. The French Quarter is a 7 minute walk from the hotel. Really a great place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable overnight stay!"
I was so pleasantly surprised at how much room there was. It was literally a one bdrm apartment with full living room with pull out sleeper sofa, entry way, small dining area, and a full bedroom with its own tv & closet. I took the bdrm (could close the door & have privacy) & my teenage son & his friend stayed in the living room on the pull out bed. […] They had their own tv. Room was very clean. Huge bathroom & very friendly helpful staff for about $20 more than a large chain motel. I will def return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to French Quarter"
The room was a good size and the bed comfortable. A frig in the room would sure be nice. The weather was very cold so we had to spend quite a bit of time in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Hotel, Great Staff"
Our stay was extremely pleasant. The only minor discomfort was the mattress in our room could use replacing, and the speaker had been blown out of the tv in the living room, but who comes to NOLA to watch tv? Beautiful room, very roomy and nicely decorated. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location is just a few minute walk to the quarter.... […] and if you're too tired after a long night, the cab ride back is less than 10 bucks inc. tip. This place definately will be on my go to list. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Alternative to big-name chains"
Got a very good price on Hotels.com. It's an old building and the room I was in (I think I may have been upgraded to a suite) had a somewhat unusual floor plan, but it was very attractive and comfortable with fixtures and furnishings that might be called "vintage" (brass fixtures, tables that looked antique rather than "antiqued", often topped by pretty […] good porcelain objects). Since it's on St. Charles, you will hear the street cars at odd times of the night if you are a light sleeper. Staff very friendly and helpful. Bed was comfortable. Although I am fond of the Hilton on St. Charles just down the street, the Lafayette will probably become my 1st choice in NO. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place... Friendly staff"
My boyfriend and I stayed here for his birthday. The staff was super nice and eager to please. We had to stay an extra night because of winter storm leon. The rooms are nice and spacious. The only bad thing about the room was the bed. It was too firm for us and a little old\used. There was also construction going on on the street outside our room that […] woke us up on our last night at 5AM. I think they were fixing broken pipes though. All in all for the price I think this was a nice place to stay. When you are in New Orleans you don't spend a ton of time at the hotel anyways. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"it was ok"
the front desk people were not the most pleasant. The room was clean but old. The couch was so old you couldn't sit on it. The restaurant was closed so you had to go out for food. The concierge person ( I spoke with 2 of them) were both very nice and accommodating. Its in the financial district and basically the warehouse district. During the day its […] fine but walking at night is a bit sketchy. In a pinch it will work. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Checked in on Fri. 01/24/2014. Bellman got our bags in room and I realized there was no balcony. I had prepaid for a king suite with balcony. Went down to desk to question abt. changing rms. and was told there were no more rooms. I told the "person" that unfortunately I was a smoker and had requested a balcony rm., I was then told "the rms. are non-smoking". […] Okay, we went on abt our business at a conference came back abt 9PM, the room was freezing. NO HEAT! This was the day of the New Orleans ice storm! Called front desk, was told by this "person" would have it ck'd out first thing in morn. Yes, the room was freezing. Maintanence man came to ck, still no heat. The "person" at front dest brought us a portable heater! How generous! Later on Sat. afternoon someone came in and got heater to work. Manager called cell phone and left message "We are sorry abt any inconvience you have had, we are going to credit your M/C 150.00! Okay, at $$$ a night you would have thought they would have done somewhat more/better for the slight inconvience of freezing all night long. Last time for us to stay at the Lafayette!

"Nice Hotel not too far from the French Quarter"
It was a nice place to stay and close to the spots I needed to go to so I was able to walk. French Quarter is maybe a 10 minute walk away. The bed was very comfortable but the walls are kind of thin. The entire staff was very nice and accommodating. I would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice downtown boutique hotel"
We spent the MLK weekend at the LaFayette. When checking in to a King room, we asked, and they bumped us up to a very nice suite, with a living room, kitchenette and bedfroom. However the room had been freshly repainted and odorous, but for the 2nd and 3rd nights they moved us to a comparable suite. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The suite […] was a little tired, the living room couch sagged and needs to be replaced and the TV's were small and non-HD, but overall it was very comfortable. Valet parking is available. There is a trendy bar and also a restaurant next to the hotel, but we didn't patronize them. The rooms were a little noisy from the occasional trolley cars that run up and down St. Charles, but they didn't really bother us. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very large and comfortable room in a classic hotel style setting. Would recommend and would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I totally ejoyed the period dressing of the room. Took us back to another time in the development of the area. Would definitely have stayed our whole 5 days here had we not had other reservations in the French Quarter. Loved it and the service we received. The only thing we missed was room service, but with the restaurant very close we got by:)thanks! Only […] negative had to do with getting transportation to our next hotel location for our convention.

"quiet & good location"
We only stayed inthe room at night. We were always out from morning to night. The trolley stops right in front of the hotel which was great and it was 15 mins walk to French Quarter. Overall it was clean but it could use some renovating.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel,easy access 2 all the attractions"
A good hotel to stay at, 10 minute walk to Bourbon and Canal streets and 10 minutes to Superdome. Small hotel, Very nice room, excellent bed. You can park 1/2 block away and save a few dollars. Staff did an okay job but certainly not 5 star service. But, hey, I wasnt looking for 5 stars. I was in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl (Boomer Sooner!!) and […] hotel was just a place to sleep. Yes I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Old-school boutique hotel with few frills."
Staying at the Lafayette was a pleasant but very no-frills experience, made more enjoyable by the responsive and friendly staff. The first room I was assigned to had a broken toilet, but the staff quickly moved me to a different room at my request. The public areas of the hotel are lovely and prettily restored, while the rooms are fairly unimpressive. […] The rooms themselves (if the two I saw are representative) are haphazardly laid out and updated. My first room featured a very, very small television that had to be 15 years old, placed such a distance from the bed, and even the couch, that it would be hard to watch. My second room had an updated flat-screen television, placed away from and parallel to the bed--also very hard to see. If in-bed hangover recovery time is part of your plan in NOLA, this may not be a great spot for you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not bad for the location"
The location and price where what put us here for the Sugar Bowl. The area was nice and we could get to Bourbon Street and the Superdome easily. The only down side I would have would be the customer service. The day we were checking out we got a knock on the door at 9:30 to remind us of checkout time. An employee asked e about it as well as I was getting […] ice and at 11:00 as we are walking out the hone rang to remind us again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to all places of interest to us for this par"
Of all the hotels we have stayed at in N.O. this is by far our favorite. The hotel was so convenient to everything on our agenda. The quality of service was spectacular. We especially appreciate the extra effort made by the front desk clerk Dwayne. Hotel restaurant food has excellent food and service. The only inconvenience we experienced was the front […] sitting room had only one lamp and the room was rather dark which made it impossible for a second person to read, etc. I would strongly suggest another sofa end table lamp and perhaps a standing lamp behind the chair. The Lafayette will definitely be our first choice of hotels during our next stay in New Orleans. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Christmas in New Orleans"
The Hotel Lafayette would be an absolute gym... but the maintenance just was not up to snuff....lamps not working in the bathroom and the cover for the lamps was behind the toilet.... also a few dings in the room.. like I say this place could be a real gem...but the upkeep is definitely second rateGenuine Expedia guest review
Great classic hotel down town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place was great! Huge rooms and by that i mean there was a bed room, living room and a bathroom. Very old school my wife loved it!Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a door connecting to the next room. We could hear EVERYTHING in the other room as if they were in ours.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
BOOKED THIS HOTEL FOR A COUPLE OF NIGHTS PRIOR TO A CRUISE DEPARTURE. WOULD HAVE LIKED IT A LITTLE CLOSER TO THE FRENCH QUARTER BUT STILL EASILY IN WALKING DISTANCE. IT WAS CONVIENENT TO CATCH THE TROLLY. AS WELL AS THE MUSEUMS. OVERALL A GOOD CHOICE. WOULD BOOK AGAIN.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Value in a convenient location"
It is an older hotel that is currently being renovated. Our room was large with a comfortable bed. It is in a location that is close to the French Quarter and restaurants in the business and warehouse districts and the WWII museum. Although it was not a problem for us, the hotel is on St Charles Street and you can hear the street car going by. So light […] sleepers beware. I still would recommend the hotel. The staff was very accommodating. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Aging facility could have been cleaner though attempts made to make it comfortable. The bed was comfortable. The water was hot!

"Nice hotel in good location"
The downtown and especially the French Quarter is too touristic, cheap and is not pleasant. However, near the hotel and up town, there are very nice bars, restaurants and galleries. Go there,Genuine Expedia guest review
