This hotel is located on St. Charles St in the Garden district of New Orleans, and was a quaint place to stay. It looked like two building put together, and it was right on the streetcar line, with easy access to Bourbon Street. Myself and two friends stayed here in the one and only room they had with three beds,... More

Sandwiched between 2 great little restaurants, Slice Pizzarea & VooDoo BBQ, this little hotel is filled with charm, character and history! It's old and quaint. It's by no means flawless, but a really great place to stay. The staff are friendly and know all the really cool places to go for music, food and entertainment. If you want down home... More

One of the best stays ever in New Orleans. Right next to Voodoo BBQ, a great pizza place/bar named "Slice" and across the street from a 24 hour bar/restaurant, The Historic Streetcar in is in a wonderful location on St. Charles Street in the Garden District. Great access to the French Quarter and elsewhere via the St. Charles streetcar and... More

Stayed 2 nights, because there was nowhere else to stay. A friend booked us in and we guaranteed it with a credit card. They did a bait and switch on the room. Promised a large two bed suite and gave us a 14X16 motel room w/ 1 old & 1 new bed. Talked to another pair of couples that had... More

I was worried about booking this hotel due to the mixed reviews. I do understand that you get what you pay for. My granddaughters really wanted to stay in something quaint and "New Orleanish". Our stay was great, but here is the issue. We specifically booked a double queen and asked for the first floor, if all possible. When we... More

We stayed at the Streetcar Inn when booking it through the Hotel Tonight app and only stayed for one night. The location offers easy access to the streetcar line, which is the best amenity of this property. The room was small, dated and muggy. We had trouble getting the AC to work and even opened the window in the bathroom... More

People of the hotel are really nice. The location is perfect, close to the city center. The price is competitive, but the hotel need a good re-lifting! Impression to be back in 1980! Old TV, bathroom installation the need to be updated, air Cond make huge noise, carpets and decoration out of date, view on a wall few meters away!... More

The inn has an incredible location being about 1 block from the streetcar stop. It was generally quiet but breakfast was lacking. There wasn't anything to drink other than coffee so I would suggest planning on eating breakfast out. The rooms were clean but expect a very firm mattress.
