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.

stopping in

3.2 on October 20, 2014

We were passing thru Nola and decided to spend the afternoon exploring what we could. A good friend recommended this B n B and we were satisfied with the choice. The location is close enough to walk to the Garden District and one block from the St Charles streetcar. The B n B is an older building so it has some "charms" about it. Rooms are spacious, decently furnished, and clean. The innkeeper Beatrice is what makes the stay special. She is very welcoming and helpful, cheerful and interested in who you are. Full disclosure, she is related by marriage to my friend, but didn't give us any special attention that she didn't give to the other guests. I would stay here again upon my return.

The Fairchild House is on the outskirts of the Garden District in an area that is a bit sketchy if you have plans to walk to the French Quarter. Our room was clean. Unfortunately the air conditioner was so loud that we could not sleep. Turning it off made the room extremely warm. We ended up having to move to another hotel for the second night of our stay. It ended up being a costly stay.

Basic bed and breakfast

3.0 on September 16, 2014

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.

Great Value in New Orleans!

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.

a home away from home

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!!!

Very pleasant stay

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.
