St. Charles Guest House is a place I'll cherish forever. Walking through the doors feels like home. I enjoyed walking to Walgreens just a few blocks away to grab a newspaper before enjoying breakfast at the guest house each morning. Our group of friends met for Mardi Gras 2017 - we were in perfect walking distance, just one block away...

Had a wonderful experience staying here with a group of friends for Mardi Gras. The St Charles parade route is literally one block away, which means you can even come back to your room for breaks and afternoon naps! The rooms were clean and the staff were very accommodating. Enjoyed lounging in the pool area and the Sunday cookout with...

Three things make St Charles Guest House a great place. The people here not only take care of business but they take time to talk and share ideas of great places in New Orleans to see and things to do - Dennis and his staff are awesome! The property is incredible, stunningly beautiful and yet so homey and comfortable. Decorative...

My friend and I stayed at the St-Charles Guesthouse for one week. Upon our arrival, the owner took time to welcome us and offered us some help to plan our activities. We had an amazing trip in the swamp! The location is ideal! One street away from streetcar and bus...very quiet and nice place to hang at night (without having...

Our recent visit to New Orleans for the French Quarter Festival reminded me of why we always choose to stay at the St. Charles Guesthouse when we return to the city. The Quarter is a lot of fun and unique, but there is a lot more that is unique about New Orleans, and it should not be missed. If you...

The decor is a happy jumble of antiques and flower-patterns and true there are a few things that could stand replacing (bathroom ceiling tiles), but it is very clean, very well managed and very comfortable. It is large enough that you have your privacy--unlike some GH where you feel you are in someone's front room. The Garden District is a...

Dennis and his team made my trip to NOLA truly memorable. I would highly recommend The Guest house, for a true New Orleans experience. Very quiet and in a great location. Prices are very reasonable. Clean.

Dennis h, Owner at St. Charles Guest House, responded to this review

Thanks for a nice review. We try hard and sometimes we do not know how our guests feel. It is nice to get feedback and be able to say : I think we did a good job with that guest and it feels good to know that we helped someone enjoy their visit to our town.

I truly enjoyed my experience at this B&B. The location is excellent and the owners offered exceptional hospitality during our stay. The house has a cozy old-fashioned feel which made me feel at home in a very authentic New Orleans setting.

GREAT location, one block from the St. Charles streetcar. Quiet neighborhood. Extremely helpful staff (part of wonderful owner Dennis Hilton's non-related extended family). Simple breakfast included (coffee, juice, fruit, toast). True sense of slightly faded, historically rich, community-driven Crescent City.

I made a last minute booking for the St Charles Guest House, over the phone, from the airport, just after landing from LA. I found the listing in Frommers guide 2016, in the airport bookshop.

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.
