I used my points to take my girlfriend to NO for her birthday and this was where we stayed. Nice place that had easy access to Bourbon St and right in the middle of everything in the Garden District. Good breakfast and also has a restaurant/bar connected next door. Free parking as well.

This hotel was in a fantastic location to explore both the downtown area and the area along Magazine Street! We actually walked all the way to French Quarter along Magazine which made for a wonderful stroll discovering New Orleans neighbourhoods.

We stayed at this Best Western in June for 2 nights. It was clean and comfortable and very convenient to public transportation. The street car stop is located directly across from the Inn.

Our stay at this hotel was made even better by the fact that it is on the street car line going into downtown New Orleans. It made getting around the city a pleasure rather than a chore and paying high prices to park your car in a lot. The staff was pleasant and very helpful. The hotel was clean and... More

I did not like the fact that my card on file was previous charged before I checkin and I had the hardest time getting my funds credited back because one of the rooms reserved was done with cash upon arrival.

Kristina, For all special events in New Orleans our reservations are full prepaid, so guests get charged before arrival. This was stated during your reservation process. We do this for events like Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, Essence Fest, and graduation weekends. I'm sorry if this caused any confusion, but it is our policy. Kathleen Davis, Front Office Manager More

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
