This hotel was a great value and location for my wife and I in New Orleans. Located right off the trolley lines and midway between Tulane U. and downtown. The staff was extremely helpful with recommendations and our needs, especially Mollie and Janae. This location is also a quick walk to Magazine St. for great dining and bars. I'd recommend... More

we arrived in New Orleans well before the book in time but were graciously given a room straight away. On checking it out I saw it was adjacent a bank of aircon units so I asked for a room change. This was done with no problems although had to wait a hour for the room to be ready. I didnt... More

The hotel itself is a little dated but clean and well kept. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location was quiet and close to Tulane and the restaurants on Magazine St. Breakfast was typical for a hotel. Parking in a secured lot right behind the hotel. All in all I felt we got a good value and enjoyed... More

We stayed at the Best Western Plus St Charles St. In New Orleans What a treat that was. Starting with the concierge giving us a great recommendation for a terrific place to eat within walking distance. A fter that we had a most peaceful sleep on the third floor. The breakfasts were good, the cookies in the evening hot and... More

This isn't your typical 5-star review, but we had such a good experience I bumped it up a bit. It's no different than your regular Best Western Plus in terms of the hotel itself. Which is to say that it's one of the nicer chain / good value hotels. The breakfast was good, room comfortable, everything clean, etc. No problem... More

Having spent the night in Pensacola we set off early to drive the couple of hundred miles to New Orleans. Kim knew that the St Charles in was near the garden district, what I didn't realise how nice the area was. The Street car stops nearly outside the hotel and the set price of $1.25 is a bargain and a... More

This part of NO has limited choices, but we needed to stay close to Tulane. The hotel staff is nice and the hotel is perfectly located near Garden District, but it is very average inside. Building is old and needs updating. Wall unit a/c for example. Overall, it has a nice feeling to it and is attached to the Superior... More

Located a trolley ride away from downtown in the lovely Garden District. Trolley stops out front. Friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Can be noisy if room is on St Charles St due to trollies, but this did not bother us.

Most people think of New Orleans as loud music, boisterous voices, and drunks. Well, you are right, BUT a simple ride down the ST Charles trolley there is a quaint small hotel with a very nice staff and a buffet breakfast before the days activities. It was a little dated in the rooms, but clean and comfortable and very reasonably... More
