Having spent the night in Pensacola we set off early to drive the couple of hundred miles to New Orleans. Kim knew that the St Charles in was near the garden district, what I didn't realise how nice the area was. The Street car stops nearly outside the hotel and the set price of $1.25 is a bargain and a great ride for the 2.5 miles trip to Canal St, the street car stops directly across from Bourbon St the heart of the French quarter.
The St Charles Inn is therefore a great place to stay as a base while exploring NO, our room had the benefit of having 2 windows, the breakfast was good and the staff friendly. If I ever return would not hesitate to stay in this hotel again.

This part of NO has limited choices, but we needed to stay close to Tulane. The hotel staff is nice and the hotel is perfectly located near Garden District, but it is very average inside. Building is old and needs updating. Wall unit a/c for example. Overall, it has a nice feeling to it and is attached to the Superior Grill, which has good Mexican food and bar.

Located a trolley ride away from downtown in the lovely Garden District. Trolley stops out front. Friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Can be noisy if room is on St Charles St due to trollies, but this did not bother us.

Most people think of New Orleans as loud music, boisterous voices, and drunks. Well, you are right, BUT a simple ride down the ST Charles trolley there is a quaint small hotel with a very nice staff and a buffet breakfast before the days activities. It was a little dated in the rooms, but clean and comfortable and very reasonably priced

Right on the Street Car line very convenient location. Clean, small hotel with a free breakfast included every morning. Loved the layout of the room, with an extra separate sink vanity area next to the closet, including hair dryer, lighted makeup mirror and all the necessities. the bed was very comfortable, the shower hot and clean. Convenient FREE self-parking in fenced lot right behind the hotel! a huge plus in New Orleans! I would stay here again - no problem!

We loved our room, the decor, the shower, the bed, etc. The staff was helpful and friendly. The location on the street car line was excellent. The breakfast, which we didn't eat because we were meeting friends at other locations, looked great. Fresh fruit available all day. Nice front porch for sitting outdoors while waiting. Would definitely stay here again.
