The best thing about the facility was the location. Room was small and had to go outside to get to it. All the other rooms were inside. I know they still had rooms available. Unfortunately for me I found out that some of the larger rooms were cheaper.

I stayed at this hotel after our cruise, and it was very well decorative. The bed was comfortable, the room spacious, and the balcony was a terrific view. It is a very old building, which does not diminish the charm. The bathroom had a very modern motif, and the storage was a dresser, and small closet. It was very clean,... More

We chose this hotell mainly because we wanted something central, but not too pricy. And it was better than expected. The room was nice and big, and the staff was friendly. The breakfast was good, and the location was perfect. So close to the French Quarter by streetcar, but also away from the crowds. The buildings were charming, and we... More

We booked this online and got a really great deal. It 's located in the Garden District and on the St. Charles streetcar line. It is old and has a neat ambiance if you have an appreciation for vintage things. It is a little on the shabby side but it still has it's charm. There are some wall patches and... More

My husband and I decided on a whim to drive down to NOLA for the night. We wanted an affordable place to stay so we booked at the Historic Streetcar Inn. Pleasantly surprised at how charming this little spot was. Beds comfortable, clean rooms and friendly staff. The only negative was the amount of light the Windows let into the... More

No housekeeping service for the three nights we stayed there.. had to go to office to get towels and sheets.. no instructions on how to operate the heat which was a faux fireplace with no remote.. The manager did apologize and credit our bill for a few $$$. We just won't be going there again.

The street car line is a stone's throw from the front door! Excellent access to many of the New Orleans attractions, including the French Quarter, Audoban aquarium and insectarium, shops, restaurants, etc This inn could be elegant with some renovations and upgrades. For the three of us, we only have one set of keys. The room was set up for... More

Loved that the Streetcar was right outside the hotel! The hotel itself was charming, clean and provided a wonderful continental breakfast with coffee and juice. It was priced just right for being so close to the action..I would definitely recommend the HS Inn.
