Reservation was for 3 nights during Mardi Gras. Checked in and found room filthy. Sheets, towels, bathroom floors full of hair. We checked out just a couple of minutes from checking in. Spoke to Manager the next day. He would not refund us any of the 3 nights stay. He said it was policy.

Room 24 was the room I was given. You have to enter through an outside porch which is a smoking area. Cigaret butts everywhere. No light, the electricity is broken according to the office. To say the room was filthy is an understatement. I've never seen sheets that filthy. A layer of hair and dirt was all around the perimeter... More

We stayed here two nights. Rooms aren't huge, but they are clean and have a lovely antique feel to them, apart from the cable tv in the middle. Bathroom was clean. Staff were very helpful. Breakfast was bagels, toast & spreads, pastries, yoghurt, cereal and boiled eggs, which I was pretty impressed with considering the cheap price. Only negatives were... More

Stayed here during the Sugar Bowl and was in a good location for walking around the town. We could actually see the Superdome from our window. The staff was friendly, but they were understaffed to clean/turnover rooms after New Years Eve. Had to wait over and hour and a half to get into our room after check in time. Rooms... More

Room was filthy and we never saw a maid in the four days that we were there. I left my e-reader lying on a chest and know it was there. When I called two hours after leaving, I was told that it was not there. I believe that the desk people believed this to be true.

The Historic Street Car Inn is located in a good location. It is in the Garden District on St Charles. It is within walking distance of the French Quarter, but it's not a short walk. It is also within walking distance of Layfayetter Cemetery 1 and Commanders Palace Restaurant. The street car does run right in front of the Inn.... More

The outside of the building is absolutely charming. The St Charles streetcar runs right in front so getting downtown without using a taxi is easy. The hotel is just minutes from the WWII museum. Inside the hotel....pictures on website are deceiving. My room looked nothing like the pictures. As I unlocked my door to go in, I wasn't sure that... More
