Superb location, originally built in 1800 so expect some funky building stuff along these lines, our room was nicely modernised and very comfortable. If you want an authentic French Quarter experience then Lamothe House is hard to beat. A moderate amount of noise from some local night spots which could bother sensitive sleepers but our family of five had no...

Stayed at the Lamothe House for Thanksgiving weekend. Just steps to local dining, great music and The Frenchmen's Art Market. Excellent service from Claire when checking in. Thanksgiving day, a smiling Shywanda brought extra towels and asked if we needed anything else. Very kind indeed. What a hidden gem.

I had a wonderful time. I loved my room. So quaint. And the staff was wonderful! Places to eat and look over were just around the corner. Everybody was friendly and helpful. I couldn't have asked for better placement. Right in the middle of everything. Thank you so much!

Older historic hotel with modern in room features and comforts. Great location within walking distance from Frenchman and Bourbon Streets. OK pricing with safe gated private parking at $20/night. Staff very professional. Very clean room.

We spent a week in New Orleans right before Christmas and made the best pick for a hotel. Lamothe House is just as beautiful as it is special. We stayed in the Carriage House which was perfect since we were traveling with our adult children. You couldn't ask for a better location. Only a few blocks from the French quarter...

Came with the family for Christmas. Stayed in the back carriage house (not main house) with 3 beds which was perfect for us - my husband and I, and our grown son and daughter - they could have their own beds. We could walk to French Quarter but were out of the fray. We had a very short walk to...

The hotel is an old house converted into a hotel. The feeling is like staying in a historical house with the amenities of a hotel.

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the ancient oaks of Esplanade Avenue, the ornate architectural detail of the past meets modern comfort and convenience in our restoration of the historic Lamothe House hotel. Featuring an elaborate courtyard accented by mature landscaping, a garden pond, and a refreshing pool, peace and relaxation are just steps away from the thrill the Crescent City has to offer.In addition to 30 guest rooms refinished in traditional style, five Grand Antique Suites have been preserved from the original 1839 construction of the home of Jean Lamothe, a wealthy sugar cane planter of French descent. Furnished with antique furniture & artwork, the detail and charm that exemplifies old New Orleans is accessible to today’s traveler.Not to be overlooked is the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood the Lamothe House calls home. Here visitors will find Frenchmen Street, often referred to as “the local’s Bourbon Street”, which features some of the best local music and cuisine found in the French Quarter.Whether it’s your first or your next visit to the Big Easy, find the authentic New Orleans experience you are searching for at the Lamothe House. ... more   less
