Stayed here for a family vacation to New Orleans. Parking in gated area included in room price. Good breakfast with inside and patio dining. Comfy rooms. It's a bit older so bathroom is small but rooms and bath are updated. Didn't give 5 stars because it had a musty smell when we arrived and the a/c was loud. Streetcar stop...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 January 2017

I have been to New Orleans multiple times before, and this hotel has to be of the more pleasant stays I have had in the city. You truly can not beat the location of this hotel! Free parking is a huge, HUGE plus. Many hotels this close to the French Quarter do not offer this amenity, and can charger a...

This hotel is in Uptown New Orleans, close to the Garden District. There is a different feel to the area from the usual French Quarter area hotels. There is a small gated parking lot in back. To get to the lobby, one must walk through a narrow alleyway. The lobby is definitely nothing special. There is a breakfast area, including...

Finding anything in New Orleans that is affordable and not a dump is hard. The St Charles Inn is a great choice. It is right on the street car line that will take you into the French Quarter. Staff is very helpful, the breakfast was very good and the outdoor seating is beautiful.

Our room was comfortable and well-appointed - the perfect oasis after visiting Tulane and seeing New Orleans. The staff were very nice and helpful. Only caution is that you hear the street car in rooms that face the street. Was not a problem for us - but might be for some.

great location on a beautiful, tree lined street. The front patio is a beautiful spot to have breakfast or a quiet evening. The trolley stop is right across the street. They run frequently so getting to the French Quarter is easy. Most of the staff are very nice and helpful. Courtney, front desk, was a really great guy. I would...

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.
