About Us

A boutique hotel, the Lafitte Guest House is located in the residential area of Bourbon Street in famous and historic New Orleans. Visitors will enjoy the sights and sounds of Bourbon Street as well as a retreat into their own personal French Quarter home.

The rich and colorful history of the Lafitte Guest House was born in 1849, when the Gelieses family built this beautiful private home. This mansion offers 14 expertly appointed rooms; all enjoy private baths and many even have private balconies.

The rooms are spacious and uniquely decorated with antiques and reproductions from around the world. Overlooking Bourbon Street, all guests can gather on our shared balcony.

Our elevator-served home features other amenities including wireless internet and self-service full kitchen.

Staying with us is like staying in a private French Quarter residence. We will personalize your visit... just let us know how we can be of service.
