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.

Stayed at Fairchild for 7 nights..d room was nothing great yet me n my colleague had a wonderful stay..the breakfast lounge saw people mingling and sharing tales of their stay..Beatrice the b&b owner was extremely helpful and guided us with the touristy and culinary destinations..she even helped us book cab and tour reservations..the location was close to the morial convention center and dat helped us as we were there for a convention..will stay here again if visiting NOLA to get the true taste of southern hospitality..:-)

Location and value can't be beat!

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.

Quiet convenient location

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.

Comfortable, friendly.

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.

Beautiful room and location!

First time in New Orleans

4.6 on June 01, 2014

This was our first time visiting New Orleans. They are situated in the Garden district which was great for early morning exploring and only a block from the trolley, which led to adventures in the French Quarter. The staff was fantastic, giving suggestions of where to go, places to check out and what was available in the immediate area for food and entertainment.

Our New Orleans new treasure find!!

Great Value

This was a wonderful old B&B for a good value. It was very centrally located close to everything in New Orleans. Would recommend to anyone on a budget!

A really good place to stay

3.8 on May 16, 2014

I had a great time staying at Fairchild House. It is convenient for exploring the whole of New Orleans and the St. Charles Street car stop is only a block away. It is situated in the Garden district but not too far away from Downtown. Comfortable room and a simple but satisfactory breakfast. I would definitely stay again if I returned to the city.
