The Best Western Plus St. Charles Inn is a lovely hotel on the edge of the Garden District. The hotel is located on the busy St. Charles Ave and within walking distance of restaurants, and is across a streetcar stop with access to the French Quarter. At the present there is some construction on the streetcar track, which requires that you walk a few blocks to catch the streetcar.
Our room was spacious, nicely decorated and very clean. It had a refrigerator and microwave, flat screen TV and a small wet bar area. The king size bed was very comfortable. Because the room faced a side street, it was very quiet at night. We also did not notice the guests in the other rooms.
Service was excellent. The people at the front desk were friendly and very helpful. We did have to take our own luggage to our room, but I'm sure they would find someone to help if we had requested it.
Continental breakfast was free and had good quality items available (coffee/tea, different kinds of bagels and cereals, croissants, fruit, and more).
The area is wonderful for easy walking. The beautiful old mansions and gardens, the Lafayette cemetery, the Magazine Street business area with its restaurants and shops are definitely worth exploring for a day or two.
Pros: very clean room, excellent bed, great service
Cons: somewhat noisy street during working hours
