Lafayette Hotel Review

For those who prefer a quieter neighborhood, the elegance of St. Charles Avenue is laid out before you in this small, chic hotel—plus, you're right next to the streetcar line. The cozy brick building has housed the Lafayette since it was built in 1916; handsome millwork, brass fittings, and marble baths adorn the property throughout. The lobby is charming and small, while guest rooms are spacious and sunny. Some rooms have four-poster beds; all have cushy easy chairs and ottomans. The hotel's restaurant, Mike's on the Avenue, serves a mix of Asian, Latin, and Californian cuisine that works much better on the plate than that combination sounds.
