For those who prefer a quieter neighborhood, the elegance of St. Charles Avenue is laid out before you in these spacious, sunny, and comfortable guest quarters that date back to 1916. 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, while some rooms have four-poster beds; all have cushy easy chairs and ottomans. The hotel has a new restaurant,
Desi Vega's Steakhouse, run by the general manager of Mr. John's, the best steakhouse in town.
