This place is about 2 miles away from French Quarter. It is located on Saint Charles Avenue, where the Streetcar is directly in front and you can get a day ticket for just 6$ for 2 persons. The Hotel is excellent, the staff is very friendly, very good breakfast and clean and nice rooms. This hotel is top!

We haven't even stayed yet and love it already! We originally booked through a travel website for a ridiculously low rate but had to change dates. That company couldn't honor the same rate for the new dates, but the Best Western St. Charles Inn did! Kathleen and Melissa are awesome!!!

The surrounding area does not appear safe. However, the actual street the hotel was on was pleasant and in the Garden district. Parking was gated, which was nice. It's also easy to catch a streetcar outside the hotel. It runs every 10 minutes. It was about a 25 minute street car ride. It took about 10 minutes to get to... More

The front desk staff was wonderful and as helpful as can be. This was especially true, when our room had mold on the windows and drapes and smelled of damp. We were immediately moved to the only other available room, which, unfortunately also had mold (this time in bathroom) and damp. It was supposed to be a more expensive room... More

This is a very nice place to stay. I love the location. It is very close to downtown, the French quarter, Frenchmen street etc, but yet very calm.

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.
