Lonely Planet review

A former townhouse that’s been turned into homey, spacious suites (each with a working fireplace), Lafayette House feels very Victorian. Suites have big beds, a desk, thick drapes and old-fashioned armoires. Bathrooms are large, with claw-footed tubs, and some rooms have mini-kitchenettes.

Light sleepers should ask for rooms away from the street.

Our independent authors have visited Lafayette House and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in SoHo & Chinatown.
