My husband & I had a wonderful time at this motel over the Thanksgiving holiday. The location is perfect & we loved having drinks & snacks at the Superior Grill next door. The bed was super comfy with lots of pillows & the shower had good, strong water pressure. It was nice having two separate sink areas and a microwave... More

This is our 6th year for visiting New Orleans for Thanksgiving. We love staying here right on the streetcar line and close proximity to everything NOLA. The staff is fabulous and many have been here all the time we have, like Melissa (the gm) , Lisa and Kathleen just to name a few. Great place. Great people.

The location was top notch. Right on St. Charles and the Trolley line. Though the Trollies have no set time and we had some long waits. Very Friendly staff.

We picked this hotel because of the proximity to the trolley system -- ever so glad we did. We were greeted warmly. The staff was extremely helpful in recommending places to eat and activities to do. Breakfast is plentiful -- was very surprised at the sausage and sweet potato casserole - extremely tasty.

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood 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.
