So it seems there are run down rooms and awesome rooms, judging by my former reviewers. I had a king size room. I was staying for 3 weeks, maybe that was a free upgrade, I don't know. So, the room I was in was amazing for that price. And very good for any price. Small bathroom but huge room, fireplace... More

I stayed at the Historic Streetcar Inn about a week ago on business. It is located in an old building with simple european decor. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. They provided a great continental breakfast with delicious pastries and breads, boiled eggs, yogurt, fruit, oatmeal, coffee, tea, and juice, which one could enjoy on the cozy patio encircled... More

I opted to stay at this hotel due to the hotels being sold out downtown and the hotel location in the Garden District. You get what you pay for here. The location is fantastic and you can hop on the Saint Charles Street car in front of the Inn. The staff was very helpful however the hotel is not simply... More

This place is bigger than it appears from the street. There are at least 46 rooms. It is very conveniently located across the street from the streetcar that runs 24 hrs and cost $1.25 to get to the French quarter. You can get a day pass for $3.00. We took the streetcar there, and walked back the 1.4 miles from... More

The good news: breakfast, nice porch with rockers, small patio, near streetcar and Garden District, helpful staff The bad news: room small, bed side lamps didn't work, one outlet had tape over it and the other was cracked so plugs would not stay plugged in, sink slow to drain, toilet difficult to flush, black gunk in shower, shower curtain not...

We have stayed here 3 other times. Something has changed. The room this time was in need of repairs. Pictures were missing. Holes in the walls. Just needing some tlc. Some things add character, others seem almost neglected. With that said, still love the warm welcome and the location of the hotel. The girls who work the reception area during... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Historic Streetcar Inn (formerly the Avenue Garden Hotel) is located on the historic St. Charles Avenue Streetcar line. Step out of the hotel's front door and walk out to the car stop, which is located just in front of the hotel. The French Quarter and Downtown are only minutes away via the streetcar, which drops you off at Canal and Bourbon Street! Travel in the opposite direction and go back in time as you take in the majesty of St. Charles Avenue's mansions. ... more   less
