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.

Pleasant stay at Fairchild

3.8 on January 20, 2015

Fairchild B&B is good value for money - only two blocks from the streetcar stop, it's a quick trip downtown, and rooms are fairly clean and comfortable. Breakfast is basic (there was something egg-based one of the two nights I was there, but otherwise it's toast, cereal, coffee, juice), and rooms are very old (slightly peeling paint, signs of water damage on the ceiling, ancient furniture). All in all, I would recommend this B&B to tourists on a budget.


Very nice stay

4.0 on January 20, 2015

The Fairchild House was a quiet, comfortable "home base" for exploring historic New Orleans and road trips into the surrounding environs. Beatrice and her mom were perfect hosts, pleasant and engaging without being the least bit intrusive. We'll be back!


Nice BnB

4.8 on January 14, 2015

Liked everything about it , I had good parking but wouldn't want to not have parking. I enjoyed everything except for the bathtub but can't complain too bad about it. Otherwise great stay


Historical charm, convenient location, excellent service.

4.4 on January 12, 2015

The four poster bed, high ceilings, claw footed bathtub/show communicated clearly that I was in New Orleans. The service was very friendly. Breakfast that was included in the price was not exciting but conversations with guests and hosts made up for it.


Peaceful stay in a beautiful, historic home and neighborhood.

So nice to stay in a beautiful, historic home run by "real people". Beatrice and her mom were gracious hostesses and made breakfast a pleasant occasion. Rooms could use a touch more decorating, perhaps, but were clean, comfortable, and everything worked. PERFECT location.


Feel right at home in NOLA

My boyfriend and I stayed at Fairchild House on a recent trip and totally loved it. Our room (room 10) was clean, spacious, and comfortable. Each morning, breakfast was served in a cozy dining room, and it included coffee, fruit, breads, and even freshly scrambled eggs. Ample parking space was provided behind the house. This B&B is centrally located yet far away enough from the French Quarter that you won't be disturbed by the noise of party-goers outside; there are plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance of the B&B as well. Beatriz is a great host!


Weekend stay in New Orleans

3.4 on January 04, 2015

We had a great time at the Bed and Breakfast. Our room was clean, the staff was attentive, and we were conveniently a block away from the street car line and a few blocks from magazine st. Breakfast was a nice perk as well! Area is not the greatest to walk around alone at night.


Great value and location

3.2 on December 31, 2014

Fairchild House is not a fancy place, but it is clean and comfortable and the location is excellent--Garden District just one block from the St. Charles Ave. streetcar. The hosts are very pleasant and accommodating. A very good value for NOLA.


Great stay and convenient

Close to the St. Charles trolley for downtown or uptown. Recommend the 24hr St. Charles Tavern across the street from the trolley stop. Good food and reasonably priced. Great weekend. Beatriz and her mom are great host.


Pleasantly Surprised

4.2 on December 01, 2014

This was my first stay at a B&B so I was not sure what to expect. Beatirz,, her mom and also Ross were very accommodating and gracious hosts. The continental breakfast was a bit more than the average one would expect. Beatriz would serve a unique homemade egg dish each morning which was a nice surprise. Rooms are kept clean and comfortable. The charm of the old houses was very appealing. The surrounding neighborhood was very nice and quiet, made for nice walks in the area. Very close to the street car on St. Charlies and plenty of food, bars and stores within walking distance. Definitely a good experience for my first B&B. Thank you.
