This inn is not the Ritz Carlton but has a quaint charm of it own. The room was comfortable and clean. It is located close by the street car so traveling to the French Quarter or Carrolton is possible. Lots of great bars and eateries within an easy strolling distance. Staff are most welcoming, very informative, aa good source of... More

I've booked for 5 nights. I stayed at this hotel 1 night (June 13, 2015) and cancelled the other 4 nights. But in my credit card statement had all 5 nights charge ! and I trying to contact this hotel but no answer from them. Hotel should refund me the rest of 4 nights that I've cancelled.

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here while visiting friends in town and doing some sightseeing for the weekend. If you are looking for a historic feel, then this could be the place for you, but don't mind the holes and cracks in the corners of the molding (that's fine, as long as they are spraying to keep the bugs...

Had a great time at this little abode. Little gem off St. Charles Ave. Our room was in the courtyard. No street noise. Room was clean and cool. Walking distance to Quarter and area restaurants. Would recommend to others and will definitely return.

New Orleans is expensive, we knew that. The Historis Streetcar Inn was right up there, priced at $545 for three days. but we thought we would get quaint and historic, a little different from the usual hotel chains. What we got was rust and dust, splattered windows and mirrors, toothbrush spittle on the wall by the sink, floorboards layered with... More

This little bed and breakfast is truly a treasure. With a quaint balcony that over looks St Charles and the trolley, it is truly an authentic NOLA experience! You can easily walk up to Bourbon Street, and next door is a yummy pizza place, SLICE. I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking to really sit back, relax, and enjoy... More

Very easy to find. Parking no problem. Excellent food and spirits a few steps away. Uber transportation made fast and stress free. The streetcar inn felt like home. Quiet. Staff very friendly. Room was like being back in a different time period. Clean sheets and VERY hot water. Continental breakfast was more than expected as we sat in the courtyard... More

This place is really nice. The check in/out is quick and easy, the staff is very friendly, and the rooms are clean and old-world charming. We stayed in a room with hardwood floors, a king bed, and a HUGE window. Between the two townhouses there is a charming patio area that is private and secluded, perfect for a quick snack... More

This is a wonderful secret right on St. Charles Avenue. Restaurants and bars are located everywhere and the St. Charles streetcar is right in front of the hotel. Glenda at the front desk is a wealth of information.
