I was due to stay at St. Charles Guesthouse during my short research break to New Orleans earlier this month. The owners could not have been more accommodating in all our correspondence, I was really disappointed that eventually my plans changed at the last minute and I had to cancel my booking. I could not have been happier with how...

How much did I love the St. Charles Guesthouse? Let's just say that I just returned from my cross-country road trip and I'm already trying to figure out when I can get back down there again! First of all it's located in the PERFECT location for someone like me, who doesn't want to be assaulted by drunken college students every...

Good mattress, clean sheets, good shower, close to the street car, laundromat and restaurants. What more does a traveler want? Tripadvisor had good reviews for this house, and we knew the breakfast was only juice, coffee, pastry, and no tv, radio, etc. So no surprise there. Plus, we thought we were getting a double bed (cheaper price!) but actually had...

Stay here if you want friendly host, clean sheets, comfortable bed, a wonderful and walkable neighborhood unencumbered by crowds of wandering drunks, and the sense that the decades old wallpaper had witnessed the world's oldest profession. Skip the breakfast and go to the Please-U on St Charles. And if you want generic chain sterility skip this place entirely.

It is difficult to review a hotel based on a point or star system; what one deems 5-stars may only merit a solo twinkle from another. That said, St. Charles Guest House is without a doubt a 5-star experience in view of the charm and ultimate Nawlins vibe. A labyrinth of nooks and crannies, the enclosed property and array of...

I have stayed at the St. Charles Guest House for over 10 years, whenever I visit New Orleans. It is located in the lovely Lower Garden District, just one block from St. Charles Avenue and the streetcar. It is a collection of three buildings once used as a boarding house for sailors. It has not been renovated and yuppified, so...

The staff at the St. Charles Guest House are absolutely warm, kind, and welcoming. I stayed there for a week with a large volunteer group. There is room to store food, eat, hang out, have meetings, etc. It is conveniently located in the Garden District. Rooms were air conditioned, there's a pool, and they serve breakfast as well. Great place...

I have nothing but good things to say about the St. Charles Guest House. I travelled with a group of volunteers, and we stayed at the St. Charles for the week we were in NOLA.

I stayed at the St. Charles Guest House and loved it. Everyone, from the front desk, to the individuals who helped prepare the breakfast area, were very friendly and helpful.

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.
