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

Very convenient location and a comfortable stay for a low price. Staff was very helpful (generally, although one clerk was on her last day there and was not very responsive). Good room and good wifi. I was surprised at the good eating opportunities very close to the hotel (as well as being a short street car ride or invigorating walk... More

This was a very nice place to stay. You have to keep in mind this is an old hotel, not one of the big chains. The room was very nice, the tub faucet wouldn't turn off, but I didn't have to pay the water bill. The location is ideal, right on trolley line, short trip to downtown, and bourbon st.... More

The price is perfect, its not cheap in new orleans. The garden district is not far where you can take a walking tour to see the most... More

We stayed 3 nights and found it the best place to stay for the money. Glinda at the reception was amazingly kind and helpful. The Inn is on St Charles and the trolley stops right in front. Downtown, the French Quarter are a short ride away. Room was beautifully adorned is vintage furnishings. Room and bath were small but very... More
