The room we stayed in should be closed by the city inspectors. We paid a premium price for a dirty, run down room. Cobwebs, lumpy dirty beds, stained dirty carpet, peeling wallpaper, mold in the bathtub crevasse between times. I have never been in any hotel that nasty in all my years of travel!

This would not be my first choice (closer to last resort) for a return trip New Orleans. We stayed here during an impromptu trip to Jazz Fest. We chose the Streetcar Inn because the price was reasonable and it seemed prices all over New Orleans had been drastically inflated to take advantage of last minute Jazz Fest travelers. So, here...

Pulled up and I could already tell this would be a great experience. We checked in and Glinda and Gary were just plain awesome. Our room was very cool with... More

Yes the place is old and could use a little updating but our room was clean, air conditioner worked fine and maid service came in everyday. The breakfast selection was good however the... More

Our room and bath was very clean, large and the service was nice and very helpful, the breakfast was pretty good, the restaurants around the hotel are great with different choices, also the streetcar stops right in front of of the hotel would definitely stay here again

The hotel was on one of New Orleans premier streets, but this hotel definitely did not meet up to my expectations! My room had missing paint on the walls, the comforter had thread pulled out and hanging off the sheet, when I went to get a piece of tissue, there was one tissue left in the box mixed with pieces...

Great location centered between the hypertourist French quarter and the more gentile historic attractions of the Garden District, excellent access to public transportation. Good restaurants and pubs nearby. Very walkable even after dark. We stayed three nights while visiting family.

Located in a quiet neighborhood in the "Garden district" the inns location is on a main street for direct access to the cable car transit,15 min north of French Quarter. The room was clean. However, the mattress had some miles on it and needed to be replaced. Very bouncy. As well as, 80's Bedspread and cheap showerhead. Breakfast was provided... More
