The meeting time of 10am rolled around to discover that one of the New Orleans 5 was not out and about today. Carol has woken up with some gasto and is confined to bed for the day.
While the others went to get breakfast I walked through the rain to get our phones hooked up. After having done that I walked around town to have a look around and back to the motel to ...
... great... But they were worry a try while we were there! Thankfully we had great desserts, a bread and butter pudding and an apple crumble, then we proceeded to the tour of the plantation! The trees were BEAUTIFUL, as was the house at the oak alley plantation. We had a tour guide who was definitely a character. He described the history of the family, and that the plantation had been used to film multiple tv shows and movies. As we ...
... great cotton plantations, and marshy swamp land.
Over the world´s most awesome bridge, we entered New Orleans and the great state of Louisiana. From there, the roads deteriorated into potholes rather quickly. Camping at St. Bernard State Park, 15 miles or so to the east, our campsite was frequented by armadillos (!!!) and we were told we may see gators, owls, pigs, frogs, and rattlesnakes around the place as well. No wonder. It was dripping with humidity and I had a ...
... pictures and overheads a tour guide talking about a lady who struggled to win a legal battle only to pass away before her settlement of 36 million dollars - this money went to the state.
The houses are just amazing and the use of wrought iron is most noticeable, everywhere from gutter plates, bins, downpipes and of course balconies. Most of the houses or rather building in and around the French Quarters are 3 stories high and have so much charm, you could ...
... what he was saying and he was really twitchy. As soon as we learned, booking on board wouldn’t get us any better benefits than AmEx, we walked. I then went down to the internet area and emailed AmEx to go ahead and book the May trip. We were also disappointed in any of the “pluses” for our friends and family for the Christmas cruise.
I spent some time scanning through email and then came back to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Lamothe House Hotel New Orleans
I stayed at the Lamothe House for 5 days in the month of September 2003. I went down for a convention and my mother accompanied me. When we arrived at the Lamothe House, we were pleasantly surprised by the heavily decorated antique hallway that greeted us. Once upstairs to the main office and then finally to our room, we were greatly diaapointed!
I spent about a week at lamothe house in the week prior to Christmas.
It was a little slow, so the staff upgraded my room free of charge... & WHAT A GREAT ROOM!! The antique furnishings added beautifully to the whole charisma and feel of being in New Orleans. The staff were fantastic! going right out of their way to ensure I had a pleasant stay. After hundreds of hotels & other accomodations over the years, Lamothe House rates as one of the best easily. Highly recomended. Simon Petts
Over the past 25 years I have visited NO many times and have never had a problem, or felt unsafe. However, this trip I would like to warn future guests about a terrible unsafe place to stay. It is Lamothe House Hotel on Esplanade Ave (reminds me of a motel). Upon our arrival I was impressed that we could only enter thru a secure door with a security camera. However our room was located in an unsecured house one street behind the main house. Our room was at the end of a walkway well off the street. First night, someone tried to break into our room. I woke up and reached for a phone, NO PHONE. By the time I found my cell, my husband had scared him off. Second night, my husband, young daughter and I were awakened by bikers who decided to party, and park, their harley 5 feet from our 1/2 glass entry door. Silly me I opened the door and told one man that this was not a parking area, he told me "it is now". His helmet said "Eat S__t", your mother might have brought you into this world but I can take you out". I called the night clerk, he said he could not do anything about it. I told him where these men were staying (next door with 2 women). He said he still couldn't do anything. How safe can this place be if the main house, and parking areas, are secured with locks and cameras yet our area had none? Never did they offer to move us, nor once did they try to contact us to ask if we were OK. I did contact the manager later, Cheryl, she told me that there was nothing they could have done, and that "it wasn't their problem if other guests behaved badly. I repeat Lamothe House Hotel is NOT SAFE.
Perhaps it is the rate which makes one less critical. We paid $49 for one Friday night with a coupon late September.
The staff was friendly, the room was average, although nicely decorated in an old style, the bath room was clean and the continental breakfast was what you usually get. And you have free "secured" parking were NO will cost you $20 a day easily.
The pool and hot tub were nice, but the pool water was a little on the warm side in order to use your swim as a refreshment.
Lamothe is not bad at all.
Lamothe House was a disappointment and over priced! I could not recommend this hotel and I would not stay there again.
Visited Sept. 19, 2003. Room was a disappointment. Door to room opened into an alley. Wall of building next door about 4 feet from door to room. Had to turn sideways to get in door with luggage because railing on room was so close. Felt like a dungeon. I had e-mailed ahead to let them know we were celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary. At the time of booking I was told this was a lovely room overlooking the pool. Very deceiving because the only thing overlooking the pool was the solid wall of your room before you turned the corner to go down the alley to get in your room. The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. In all fairness the hotel did have a few nice antiques. The pool and garden area was small but clean. The continental breakfast was a disaster. Average pastries served, but there was only one table for the whole inn. Each morning people left because there was no place to sit. No one was busing the table. You had to clean off dirty dishes to have a spot to eat. I read a lot of reviews before choosing this inn. I hope this review will help the next person not have as disappointing trip as my husband and I had.
We stayed at the Lamothe House for a few days last week. We booked there based on the reviews here. We received a better total price, ~$40, by making our reservations via telephone rather than online.
Lamothe was great
My Husband and I took our belated honeymoon trip in New Orleans. We needed to find a place we could afford and that would have a pool and be in the French Quarter. I used my AAA book and found Lamothe House.
It had received a good rating from AAA so we figured we would give it a chance. We were not dissapointed. Very nice place with a staff that went above and beyond. We would recommend it to everyone. :)
Could be fantastic
This hotel was okay but could be nicer. The location is great. I love Esplanade Avenue and the quiet side of the French Quarter. Staff was very nice. On the downside, our sheets were stained and never changed in four days and some things in the room were a little shabby and ready for change. Overall, good solid B. -Cathy from Dallas
On our tenth trip to New Orleans (June 2003)we decided to stay on a different side of town to see if we could discover some new places. We chose the Lamothe House because of it's location, pool, and price. The Lamothe House is located on Esplanade Avenue on the edge of the French Quarter. It's a nice walk to Jackson Square; if you get tired the trolley stop is only 3 blocks away. Nearby Frenchman Street, which I am told by the locals is "Bourbon Street the way it used to be" is home to several new night clubs as well as an old favorite, Snug Harbor. The Lamothe House is an charming historic property furnished in antiques. The upstairs dining room serves continental breakfast family style, and complimentary sherry is served in the afternoon. There is a landscaped courtyard with a very clean pool and jacuzzi. On arrival, the desk clerk Thelma greeted us like we were her family coming to stay for the week-end. Later we were pleasantly surprised to see that Cheryl Hedrick is now the manager of the Lamothe House. We met Cheryl when we stayed at a sister property, the St. Peter House. Both Thelma and Cheryl were very helpful and have great insight about things to do when in the area. We stayed in a double room to get the best rate If you want a little more room, opt for a King or a suite. If you want a place that is authentic and offers value for your dollar, and has a good location, this is the place for you!
My friends and I decided to use our final college spring break for a cultural experience, and what better place to find culture than New Orleans! We didn't want to stay in a big name hotel that looks the same as any other city, so we chose the Lamothe House. It was the cutest little victorian place on the outskirts of the French Quarter. The staff was always helpful, and the location was great! We could not have been happier with our experience. If you are planning a trip to New Orleans, take the cultural route and head to the Lamothe House---tell them the Kentucky girls say hello!
