Best Western Plus St. Charles Inn

Reviewed April 1, 2014

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

Did not get to stay in room for a long amount of time but at night it was quiet. Something you look forward to a busy city. Wood stay again and wood recommend. Very convenient location. Take the trolley to canal street and you get a wonderful view.

I was having a hard time finding a hotel that met our criteria: near the French Quarter, but not IN the Quarter, reasonable price, easy access to transportation, and free parking. BWP met all the criteria and then some! From reservation(Maggie) to checkout (Agnes) the staff was courteous and helpful. Agnes gave us our parking opener before we checked in so we could park the car and take the trolley downtown. Our room was clean, had a fridge, microwave, and a vanity area that I used to do makeup while hubby was in the separate bathroom. Location is right on trolley route but construction in front meant we had to walk a very short distance to board trolley. We never heard any noise from the trolley track construction! Breakfast was pretty good- eggs, bacon, yogurt, pastries, cereals, waffles, etc. I enjoyed the fruit infused ice water that was available all day and the cookies at night:).

This a very quaint hotel in the Garden District. Quiet and peaceful with the trees overhanging Saint Charles Avenue with the streetcars rolling past. Easy to get downtown to the French Quarter or uptown or Magazine street. Near Tulane University and Jacques-Imo's Café!!!

Great staff, clean rooms, and comfortable atmosphere are the norm at this fun little hotel in the Garden district of New Orleans. Within walking distance of the trolley and many restaurants and bars, the inn is in a great location to see all the sites of New Orleans. We stay twice a year if we can, and have always thoroughly enjoyed the St. Charles Inn.

My business travel to New Orleans takes me almost entirely out of the Central Business District. I have no need to be downtown. So the St Charles Ave location of this hotel is perfect for me. I also like the fact that it is a small hotel with a boutique-type feel to it. The street car is right in front and a nice restaurant is literally next door. The area is mainly residential. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and caring. They sincerely care for their guests. I was fortunate enough to be staying at this hotel and not somewhere else during some severe weather. The hotel manager, Melissa, kept informed about the weather conditions, what services/businesses were open, and went out of her way to accommodate guests. I was very impressed with her level of concern for our well being. But then, she is this way every time I stay there. All the hotel personnel are attentive. From the moment you arrive, you are greeted and taken care of. Whether it is to inform you of the hotel services or recommend a local place to eat, the entire staff is helpful and friendly. Though the pricing is a good value and the rooms are clean and have adequate space, the real reason to stay here is the hotel staff.

Loved this hotel! Staff is cheerful and extremely helpful. The hotel is a little older, but is immaculate (my biggest concern) with many updates, and the beds are very comfortable (newer?) My son and I were here on a college search trip. If he chooses to attend school in NOLA I will stay at this hotel every time we visit this fantastic city!
