Based on the previous reviews, I expected a little more from this hotel...I don't care if a hotel I stay in is fancy, modern or with a lot of amentities BUT I do care if it is clean. This place did not feel clean and the bedding was very old and questionable... I did not look forward to laying my... More

I recently stayed for four nights in New Orleans for a convention and with my company I travel a ton and frankly can call the bigger chain hotels home. I asked my company to find a more home -like place to stay and found AGH to be what I was looking for. It's small enough that the staff knew my... More

I just returned from a four day stay at the Avenue Garden Hotel. I got there three hours before check in and the staff were nice enough to let me in a room immediately. This basically gave me an extra day to sight see. The staff were very friendly and I found the hotel to be very clean. While my... More

The hotel was a great place for a 4 day get-away. The hotel is next door to a fantastic bbq restaurant and short walks to many other wonderful places to eat. The bus line is right in front of the hotel to take you to the French Quarter ($2.50 round trip ride vs. an expensive taxi ride is definitely a... More

We stayed one night at the Avenue Garden hotel for our honeymoon and although the room was pretty nice we had a fair amount of problems. I recommend contacting the property directly and checking expedia prices to see which is better, it varies. We were told that there was parking that would be $10 or $15 per day but when... More

I absolutely love the Avenue Garden Hotel. It is an extremely lovely and quaint hotel with excellent service and beautiful rooms. Its location is perfect for those who want to travel to both the French Quarter and to Uptown New Orleans. It is also ideal for those visiting New Orleans during Mardi Gras, as it is situated directly on the... More

We stayed here briefly in March, and could not get out fast enough. The place was very disappointing because of the price we paid through Expedia, the expectations we had to stay in a quaint, lovely hotel, and the dingy run-down establishment it actually is. The room we got was very worn with dark red dirty carpet, and smelled like... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying for the second time at the Avenue Garden Hotel. This inn is located in a series of renovated 19th century townhouses on the St. Charles streetcar line (currently serviced by buses). It is centrally located with easy access to the French Quarter, Arts District, Central Business District, shopping on Magazine Street, Uptown, Garden... 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
