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

We loved our room, the decor, the shower, the bed, etc. The staff was helpful and friendly. The location on the street car line was excellent. The breakfast, which we didn't eat because we were meeting friends at other locations, looked great. Fresh fruit available all day. Nice front porch for sitting outdoors while waiting. Would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here a couple of years ago. Lacey made our stay one of the best. She told us the best places to go and drew us a map to get to each one. I sure hope she is still there but she is such a great person I am sure she has moved on. Great Location... More

Although this hotel isn't new or particularly fancy I would stay here again because the staff was so helpful and friendly. The streetcar line is right out front and adds to the convenience of staying here.

Couldn't have asked for better experience. The service was excellent and the staff was very friendly. I'm looking forward to returning to New Orleans and will definitely stay here again! Easy access to transportation. Enjoy the Street Car into the French Quarter. Tour of the city was very informative. Loved the entire weeks stay.

If you're looking for a quiet and peaceful stay in a historic neighborhood, this hotel would be wonderful choice. Traveling from the hotel to the French Quarter takes approximately 20-30 minutes (depending on your means of transportation). You can pick up the streetcar near the hotel (though some of the lines are currently undergoing construction and buses are used as... More

Our trio stayed at the Best Western Plus - St. Charles Inn at 3636 St. Charles Ave in New Orlean's Garden District. Our stay was the weekend of Halloween in the French Quarter, a music festival and other tourist events. We felt lucky to book here for $287/night. In "normal" times, $150/night would seem fair. The only remaining rooms in... More

I stayed at this hotel from November 8 - November 11, 2012. Located within walking distance of Lafayette Cemetery No 1 and the Garden District. Clean, comfortable, and quiet with a super friendly staff. The morning breakfast was very good - waffles, eggs, sausage, pastries, cereals, juices, and coffee. The room had a mini fridge, microwave, and a coffee pot.... More
