Expert Reviews
For those who prefer a quieter neighborhood, the elegance of St. Charles Avenue is laid out before you in this small, chic hotel—plus, you're right next to the streetcar line.
This 1916 Beaux-Arts building sits at the edge of Lafayette Square just outside downtown New Orleans. It is a small, nearly hidden jewel on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line.

Right on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line, the Lafayette recalls the elegant residential hotels of an earlier era with its classic decor, friendly staff, and handsome Beaux-Arts building.
