Perfect place to stay to while visiting New Orleans

The location is perfect. Easy access of public transportation almost anywhere. Staffs are friendly. Room is rather small but sufficient to sleep and rest. Breakfast items are adequate. Car parked in secure gated place and it is free. Very nice ambient.

French Quarter: Lots of restaurants, listening to jazz, shopping. By taking the public transportation, it will take you to these places without the headache of driving in traffic and difficult to find parking.

Will Stay Here Next NOLA Visit

This hotel is fabulous because it has free parking on site, is on the Saint Charles Streetcar line which will take you right to the Quarter very inexpensively and reliably. The room was comfortable, although the blackout curtains hung over the air conditioning unit, blocking most of the cold air into the room. The TV was at an odd angle and so was not visible from the bed. The lights were hot, which was irritating in the hot New Orleans summer. The free wireless is great, and the free breakfast each morning was pretty good.

What a Wonderful Hotel

We were delighted to arrive and find a bright, clean lobby with easy access to a gated parking lot; "Lacey" at the front desk with so many helpful suggestions on how to get around and where to eat; an elaborate breakfast in the morning; a street car thar runs literally right past the front door; a safe neighborhood; large, clean room with comfy beds; extra sink/dressing area; and generally a feeling that we were in real comfort. Not a single negative. This is an older hotel that has been remodeled by Best Western, and that older, European feeling is still there. I'd go back there in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to you.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Street car is $1.25 plus $.25 for a transfer (Seniors ride for $.40). Take the St. Charles car to the Canal St. car, then tranfer again to the Riverfront car. This will take you to Jackson Square and plenty of great things to see and do, especially in the daytime. Nighttime is entirely different (some streets are darker and single women traveling will want to be careful where they wander). Cafe Du Monde (open 24 hours) and Aunt Sally's Praline Shop are next to each other - they were our daytime destinations. We asked some locals where to get a reasonably priced seafood dinner and they recommended the Alpine, which happened to be closed for the filming of a Kate Hudson movie (yes, we took photos of her shooting the film), but the manager of Alpine recommended walking 2 blocks up the street to the Charter House Restaurant. Perfect, great food, good prices. Imagine getting about 20 jumbo shrimp with hush puppies and fries for only $14.95! It was delicious, as was the gumbo/jambalaya/beans & rice combo for $18.00. Very friendly staff, great people-watching location. If you're driving your car into the area, public parking on the riverfront is $5.00 for 1st hour, $8.00 for 2 hours, etc. If you're traveling up Canal St. and you want amazing Italian gelato, cookies, cannollis, spumoni, etc., go to the corner of Canal and Carrollton (about 40 blocks up from the Fr. Qtr., and turn right. Address is 214 N. Carrollton Ave. Authentic and wonderful.

good for a stay in the garden district,

The hotel was clean, but not the ideal for a longer stay. The hotel itself doesn't have many amenities, but it is in a good central location. The area is pretty, but the parking is offsite in a garage a block down and over. Not ornate, but a good value.

Great location!

Stayed here for a long weekend for the Final Four. The location and neighborhood is fantastic. We walked everywhere or caught a streetcar which stops within 200 feet of the hotel. Would definitely stay here again.

Great Choice

Very nice, simple hotel. Desk staff was very friendly. Really nice breakfast bar. Free parking in a secure gated lot was a great advantage since I had a rental car (it was the only hotel I found with free parking). Room was clean and quiet. One great feature is the hotel fronts on the main street car line that goes right to Bourbon Street. So the hotel is in a quiet residential area, but you are 10 minutes from the party and restaraunts. Highly recommend this value-priced hotel.

Best Western St. Charles Inn

It was a great place to stay for families. The street cars ran right past the hotel. There weren't many restaurants near the hotel, but the ones nearby really were great. A McDonalds was within a couple blocks (important with young kids) and a drug store was just across the way. It was a very nice place. The only downside was that if you want to take advantage of the French Quarter, it was somewhat difficult due to the location.
