Worth every penny!Posted Dec 5, 2014
Cons: Wi-Fi signal throughout the whole hotel should have been at least 4 bars, often I had 1 or 2 bars and I while inside the room.
Location: Plenty to do, plenty to eat, central location to see the street cars going by! Great parking on the side streets.
Very friendly check-in process with Glinda. Cozy rooms with a fire place and good tv reception. Wifi was in and out all day for my phone and laptop, but was good when it worked for me. The free breakfast was awesome, as were the housekeeping and maintenance staff. Forget about all those other so-called cheaper places around NOLA, you'd be better off coming to the Historic Streetcar Inn on St. Charles Avenue!!!

The clerk was personable and very friendly.Posted Nov 29, 2014
Cons: It's a older building but well kept. The carpets could be replaced, would help with the old smell and brighten it up maybe but didn't bother us at all
Location: It was away from the big crowds of bourbon street but right at the trolley station so it was in a perfect location to go anywhere you wanted.
Overall very satisfactory. We only stayed one night but it was perfect for our stay in New Orleans.

Pros: Old timey feel

No parking Big CityPosted Nov 21, 2014
The price was attractive,the accommodation poor. NO parking. Street parking in a commercial part of the city very very limitted. Not a good idea.

Neglected, worn hotelPosted Nov 20, 2014
Pros: Location in a residential neighborhood near the street car made it easy to not eat their breakfast (great coffee shop across the street).
Cons: Some easy updates, like new carpet and paint, new bedding would make this place go from gross to perfectly adequate.
Location: On the St Charles street car line, close to the WWII and Ogden Art museums. Many cute restaurants and bars within walking distance.
A colleague and I needed to go to a meeting and needed to stay within a strict budget and location was important. We ended up at this hotel. Big mistake. My room had nasty 90's style and color carpet that had many stains. The walls had plaster patches all over, some painted over in a slightly different color than the wall, others not even painted. The bathtub was dirty. The only plugs were behind large pieces of furniture, making it difficult to charge or phone or computer. The bed spread looked as old as the carpet. I'm from the Northeast, so this might be normal for New Orleans, but there was only a space heater in the room and when it was on, the TV would fade in and out. It was a cold snap when I was there so the heat was necessary. The towels smelled clean but the neglect of things like the walls made me have serious doubts about cleanliness. If you can't paint the walls, why do I think that you are going to clean shower curtain or toilet well?

Quirky, super-cheap hotel in a good locationPosted Nov 18, 2014
Location: Great location - right on the St. Charles tram and close to everything
Pros: very cheap cost/night, I got upgraded to a suite with a king bed and a separate living room, nice living room/common area downstairs, great location and right on the tram, free breakfast Cons: building could use some updating, check-in got delayed by an hour because the room wasn't ready

Worst hotel experience of our lives!Posted Nov 14, 2014
Pros: The exterior appearance with the rocking chairs on the front porch looks very inviting. Also, the location is convenient on St. Charles Street.
Cons: Simple cleanliness inside the rooms and in the common areas. Also making sure the rooms are equipped with extra TP, towels, blankets, newer bedspreads
Location: Good location on St. Charles St. close to streetcar, public transportation.
Our room had not been cleaned from the previous occupant upon our arrival, even though we arrived around 6 pm, which should have given adequate time for cleaning. The desk clerk, Glinda, was unable to reach the cleaner, so she herself put new sheets on the beds and retrieved the dirty and threadbare bedspreads from the floor of the closet were they had been thrown to put on top of the new sheets. She did not clean the bathroom (I could tell because there was still toothpaste residue in the sink, the floor was sticky, etc.) but merely placed new shampoo and soap in the dirty broken plastic tray on top of the sink and provided new towels, which looked stained. She also did not vacuum the floor. While she was doing this, my husband and I (and two other couples who had also rented rooms there) occupied ourselves elsewhere by sharing a bottle of wine, so we did not discover the condition of the room until after Glinda had left for the evening and closed up the office. Initially we had asked for another room, but she said everything was booked. I used some kleenex to wipe out the sink and remove accumulated grime from the air conditioner and other furniture. There was no heat in the room and only 1 thin blanket on our beds, so we were cold all night (no extra blankets in the room). We had originally planned to stay 3 nights, but after discovering the room STILL had not been cleaned by the end of the 2nd day, we had to leave early. The exterior looks nice, but interior is SCUMMY!

Great location, but hotel could use a little love.Posted Nov 11, 2014
Pros: The location to downtown, the Garden district, the food, the proximity to everything there is in NOLA. The breakfast selection was excellent as well.
Cons: Some care should be taken. My room literally had pieces of the wall missing from behind the door frame. Housekeeping needs to clean rooms regularly.
Location: You MUST try Slice, literally right next door. Their BBQ shrimp po-boy (w/ all the dressings) is the best thing you will eat. Their pizza rocks too!
I think there is a lot to want to like about this place. If I'm talking about pure asthetics, the place from the outside looks outstanding, as it looks like a piece from history. The problem is that once you enter, it looks like there is a lack of desire to maintain the hotel itself. The amenities were few, but they did have excellent continental breakfast selections. Unfortunately, the room I was staying in was beneath a loud, raucus family, it seemed, so I constantly heard loud footsteps. On top of that, I believe my room was situated next to the restaurant next door, and I could hear the trash being taken out almost every 15 minutes at night until around midnight, so there could be some improvement to sound proofing windows a little bit. Their TV situation, albeit I did not use it very often, is a sad state of affairs. The TV is about 10 inches, and clearly needed a bulb replacement about 15 years ago. Attempting to watch anything was very difficult. Aside from that, the staff was friendly, but the housekeeping failed to visit my room during a night of my 4 day stay, and did not replenish my towels in a timely manner. There should be more care taken with the rooms as well, as there are dirty spots on walls, and chunks of drywall missing from the room I was staying in. All in all, I cannot be disappointed too much, because I was able to sleep, and enjoy New Orleans, but I think this establishment could use some improvements in the future.
