I had stayed at this hotel under previous owners and was extremely disappointed at it's decline... Not only did they quadruple prices during Mardi Gras and require non-refundable advanced payment, on check-in they made the guests wear permanent plastic wrist brands, as if we were attending a frat party instead of paying $250.00 a night for a room. They made... More

The prices during mardi gras are exorbitant - about five times what the hotel charges during the rest of the year - and for that money it was not worth it. Staff was surly upon check in and at other times - with the exception of a concierge named Mark - and the facility is run down. Carpet in the... More

This hotel is also known under the name of Avenue Garden Hotel. It is not at all what you expect and the photos on the internet are not what you will see also.

I chose this hotel since it stated it was near the train station. I found it a bit far away - at least 10 blocks. On another level it is convenient to downtown with the Charles Street trolley right across the street. My first two nights I had a room without any windows, but the staff was nice and switched...

We stayed 3 nights for the RnR marathon and did not have a good experience. The only positives are that it is charming and in a good location. The first night I put earplugs in and went to sleep early since the marathon was early the next morning. They left the house music in the hall blaring all night which... More

I found this hotel by chance when we had a race registration transferred to New Orleans. The price and location were exactly what I was looking for. We were thrilled with our room, the double that has its own porch and entrance right onto to St. Charles Street. I was able to park my car just around the block and... More

Spent 3 nights. Loved the room. Love the staff. The location is perfect. Walk out the door and on to the St Charles Streetcar. I can't say a bad thing about this inn.

We went to New Orleans for Christmas with a groupon I found for $62.00 a night at this hotel. Now, that being said we didnt go expecting a fabulous over the top hotel.
