Top 10 New Orleans Inns and B&Bs: Lafitte Guest House
A stunning selection of antiques, hand picked from across the globe, restore this New Orleans guest house’s historic appeal. And while our No. 9 pick’s French-inspired exterior may appear to blend in with the crowd, magnificent views put Lafitte Guest House a step above – literally – its French Quarter counterparts.
The comings and goings of the historic Vieux Carre are clearly visible from Lafitte Guest House’s rooftop balcony, while glimpses of the downtown New Orleans’ skyscrapers are visible just beyond the last row of brick chimneys and gabled peaks. Below, a leafy oak tree canopy offers shelter to horse-drawn carriages as they pass. For a New Orleans bed and breakfast with a Bourbon Street address, Lafitte Guest House is a pleasant surprise. While some of the dwellings that call this infamous street home take a low on class, heavy on the crass approach, this mansion-turned-inn is a true testament to Southern charm.
Even more eye candy awaits inside Lafitte Guest House’s beautifully-appointed interior, outfitted with all the grace and elegance you’d expect from an antebellum home. Polished black and white checkered floors usher guests into the lobby of this luxury boutique hotel, while exposed brick walls and marble fireplaces are prominent features throughout. And outside, iron lace balconies are a fitting place to pull a chair with a Mint Julep in hand.
