About

One of New Orleans architectural treasures, Fairchild House was established in 1991 in the 1841 Greek Revival home and two adjacent guesthouses. Situated among the picturesque oaks of the Lower Garden District, the bed and breakfast is located seventeen blocks from the French Quarter and twelve blocks from the Convention Center. The nine rooms of Fairchild House, each with private bath/shower, are decorated in an elegant antique setting, evoking the Victorian period.

Fairchild House was quaint and run by a friendly staff. The location was perfect (accessible to both the Garden District and CBD/French Quarter). The rooms were kept tidy, however could use seasonal cleanings to freshen up rugs and a/c filters.


Restroom issues

3.6 on March 27, 2014

Everyone was very helpful and even allowed us to check in early since our flight landed early. That was very helpful! Our room was ok, there were stains on the carpet and the bathroom door was 2-3 feet from the bed. The bathroom door doesn't close, it was warped from the heat I guess and even has damage from where it has been this way for so long without being fixed. There was only one small mirror in the bathroom and nothing in the bedroom so it was difficult to have two people getting ready at the same time. Otherwise, as I said, everyone was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The bed was comfortable and clean and we slept like babies. My main issue was with the bathroom door, nothing takes the mystery out of a relationship like using the restroom with the door open (only partially) and especially when it's 2 feet from the bed. The room did need to be repainted as it looked like the job was started and never finished but this is just aesthetics and didn't make or break my stay. It is close to the st Charles street car and the start of magazine street shopping so, overall, in a great location.


Very Pleased!

We had such a lovely stay at the Fairchild. The location is excellent-- just far enough from the French Quarter that it's a quiet and low-key place to stay, but close enough to walk to everything you want to see in New Orleans, especially if the weather's nice!. The breakfast was delicious and the rooms were comfy/cozy. I'd absolutely return here and recommend it to others.
