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. The only drawback might be the occasional bit of noise from the bar next-door, although as a plus you can also order room service from its kitchen. Light sleepers should ask for rooms away from the street to avoid any problem.
Our independent authors have visited Lafayette House and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in New York City.
