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.

Great stay and convenient

5 on December 18, 2014

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

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.


Decent place to stay for the money.

Stayed for six nights. Much cheaper than most B&B's in the area. Breakfast leaves something to be desired. Bed was clean and comfy and the rest of the place was too. Dated furniture and the bathroom floor had a slant to it. The room took care of my basic needs and I slept well at night despite facing the street. The air conditioning work well however their was a door to the stand alone closet that didn't close. Staff was helpful when asking questions on how to find things and tours in the area. Would stay again.


Loved it!

Within walking distance to conference center and plenty of good restaurants (Hoshun and Slice). Loved everything about this place!


Not your average conference accommodations

Rooms were clean and spacious. Continental breakfast, served from 8:30 to 9:30, got the job done in a cozy kitchen. It was a 10 minute walk to the convention center, but probably best to do this by daylight as you walk under a highway. It was located right near St. Charles and Magazine which were great for long strolls. The hostesses were brazilian, so if you speak Portuguese they'll definitely help you practice. Wi-fi worked well enough for streaming and VPN. I will definitely stay here again.


Would definitely recommend for NO stay

Fairchild House B&B is a great value for money place to stay in New Orleans. If you are looking for an expensive all out luxury hotel (which will unlikely meet your expectations) this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a room to stay in while you are visiting New Orleans then there is nothing better than I recommend rather than staying here at Fairchild. Its location is amazing. It is extremely close to the convention center (8 mins walk) and to the WW2 National museum also (4 mins walk). Being very close to St. Charles street and to a tram stop allows one to easily and quickly head to other parts of New Orleans and explore the area. The staff of Fairchild are also extremely friendly - willing to share and help visitors of their local knowledge. Breakfast at Fairchild was also very good. Nothing fancy, but more than enough for a good breakfast - which is all that one really needs. I highly recommend Fairchild for anyone else to stay during their NO visit and I myself will be staying there next time I go to New Orleans.

all 4 of us stayed in 1 room and it was roomy enough for us all. Beatriz is a great host and has a continental b-fast for all guests. Have stayed here before but had a different room for just 2 of us. Each room is great. plan on staying there next yr


Great value for the money.

Wonderful place to stay if you want to get a full New Orleans experience. Close enough to everything, yet far enough to relax. Staff was excellent and made me feel quite at home.

We stayed here for 5 days while visiting New Orleans. The house is lovely, full of character. Our room was small but comfy, with good air con and a decent shower. We found the owners to be friendly, interesting and extremely helpful. The breakfasts each morning were delightful. Great food and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. I would highly recommend this B&B.

Very nice. Great location. Easy walk to downtown, shopping on magazine and a short block to St. Charles Streetcar. Rooms were peasant and clean. Very friendly staff! They are so friendly they could give free hugs if you asked nicely .
