First of all we fell in love with New Orleans, and we will definitely be going back. International House is just a couple of blocks from the French Quarter, and we were easily able to walk everywhere we went. The hotel is in the Central Bussiness District as it used to be a bank. The interior lobby is elegant and inviting. The decor changes with the seasons. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were immaculately clean, including the bathroom which was spotless. Normally I won't walk barefoot in a strange bathroom but here I did! This is a quiet hotel, in a quiet area away from eh noise of Bourbon street, but a two minute walk away. This hotel is perfect for first time vacationers or for Bussiness trips.
Cant say enough postives about this little gem in the French Quarter during our stay in September 2014!! The staff welcoming and always there to answer our questions!! Special shout out to Chad and Janet who recommended restaurants and things to do and were happy to help us!! It was like hanging out with friends with them!! The room was a little small but since all we did was sleep and get ready there it was perfect for our needs! The location is idea for walking to and from the attractions/restaurants in the Quarter. Even with the close proximity to Bourbon Street we never heard any loud music or noises during the night. A great hotel that I would definitely stay at again!
The hotel is lovely, renovated and clean. The staff was ehful. The room was nice though there was no window in our room. The A/C didn't work as well as I would have liked. Our room was next to the elevator so we heard it running all night.
We arrived in New Orleans and from the time that we set foot at the Lafayette Hotel we were treated like royalty. They were very accommodating, helping us with valet parking and getting a luggage cart for us, loading it and delivering and unloading in our room, getting ice for us, more towels....anything we needed. The staff was awesome and helped us with anything we asked for. I cannot say enough good things about the hotel, staff and good customer service. We will always choose to stay at the Lafayette Hotel when visiting New Orleans. They made our experience great!!!
Room was fairly large with a courtyard off to the side. It was very clean and only stayed for 2 nites so didn't need maid service although what little we did talk with them they were very pleasant and accommodating. The front office clerks were extremely knowledgeable of the area and it's attractions. They provided us with brochures of sites to see and were pleasant and extremely helpful. The lounge area was nice and the gentleman running it was extremely knowledgeable things and very pleasant.
The hotel was I'm sure rather old but well kept and very comfortable. It was in close proximity to the sites we wanted to see and was kept up very well.
I would recommend this place to anyone that wants to get a fell for New Orleans and the Bourbon Street area.
The reviews are of the hotel before the renovations. The hotel is in impeccable condition, the staff is so helpful and hospitable. I would stay here time and time again. We could walk to pretty much everything. The French quarters, bourbon street, cafe du monde and the trolleys are nearby. Breakfast is amazing and the bar is awesome! Parking was pricey but you don't really need a car.
