Found this bed and breakfast last minute for a stay in July. Think we ended up with smallest and basic room. It did the job, we needed somewhere to stay and shower, free parking, quiet neighborhood. We were surprised at the very small tv, but we really didn't need it that much. Bathroom was small, shower was even smaller but seemed fairly clean for the most part. We didn't eat breakfast here, so can't comment on that, but we were shown were to go if we desired.

I had a very enjoyable stay. This B&B is fairly centrally located, making it easy to walk or take the street cars to most of the New Orleans attractions. I particularly liked the secured parking. I parked my car Sunday and did not move it until I left on Wednesday. My room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and there was plenty of hot water for a shower. That works for me.

Safe, quiet, convenient location. Loved having breakfast in the charming dining room every morning. Beatriz and Rita make you feel like you are a part of their family. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Fairfield House Bed and Breakfast after finding a recommendation for it online from an experienced traveler. We found it to be charming - it had that real old Southern mansion ambiance. Roland gave us excellent and caring assistance. Beatriz and Rita were also a great help on the phone. We particularly appreciated this a good place to stay between Amtrak trains - the Crescent line runs every day and arrives 7:30 pm, but the connecting service that continues west, the Sunset Limited, leaves 9:00 am and runs every other day. We stayed one night for a total of $101.57 for a queen bed. which includes a light breakfast - you can't beat that for what you get - look at the pictures on their web site! Two cautions: let the hotel get you a taxi coming from the train station - we $20 plus tip when we arranged the taxi going to the hotel, but only $10 plus tip when the hotel arranged it going back. Also, stay three nights instead of one - we did not have enough time there.

My husband and I stayed at the Fairchild bed and breakfast and we had a wonderful stay. The staff are very helpful and welcoming and kind. We had never been to New Orleans before and they were polite and very helpful in answering my husband and my questions about where to go and what to do. Out of our 4 day stay we only ate the breakfast there 1 time because we were so busy but it was good. Not only was this place cute and clean it was like a home away from home. We will definitely be back here and would definitely recommend this place to others!!!

The house was old, but clean and welcoming. The people that greeted us both evening and morning were wonderfully kind and genuine. The location is superb. I think this was a tremendous bargain and we enjoyed our stay very much.

Fairchild House is a gem in a neighborhood that offers easy accessibility to great food and the trolley. It was clean, safe, and quiet. Breakfast was a perfect holdover for our dinners out (which were heavy and alcohol filled). The St. Charles trolley is one block away and for $3 you can ride back and forth (to the French Qtr) all day until 4 am (far cheaper than a cab). I loved all the antiques in the house (it's actually 3 houses). I took little mini tours every morning after breakfast to see everything. My boyfriend and I will definitely be back.

The room was very nice even had it's own outside private entrance. The locate was perfect to hope on the Street cars had head either down to Bourbon street or any of the other great attractions and come back to a nice quite location to recharge.

We met mostly with Beatriz and Ross (Russ?), both of whom were friendly and helpful. It rained heavily during our stay, and umbrellas were available to us. The property is only a block away from the St. Charles street car, and there are lots of dining options around the area.
