"Local Flavored B&B"
Overall Score2.5/ 5
For adventurous travelers seeking an authentic New Orleans experience, the Historic Street Car Inn will fit the bill nicely. Located in the Garden District
on famous St. Charles Street, this eclectic bed & breakfast gives you location, location, location, without unnecessary bells and whistles. Each room in these 2 converted houses is unique and offers multiple layouts for groups and couples with en-suite baths. A light continental breakfast is served in the mornings, to start you off on a day exploring the city. There's plenty of communal space to recount the days adventures. Or sit on the balcony and watch the parades roll by during Mardi Gras. This inn is not for those that need fancy amenities or luxury furnishings, but a great fit for people who need a base for their travels that won't break the bank.

Verified Reviews of Historic Street Car Inn Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great service. Nice place to stay."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I have nothing bad to say. The customer service was great. The stay was good. The only thing that I would say is that the beds in the room that I stayed in need to be updated. Also the comforters need to be washed. But other than that it's very good. Continue the good work. Will definitely be here next time.

"Not worth the money: $230 a night. Booo."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Location was good but the A/C was loud. Toilet didn't work. I would have paid an extra 20 or so for a better room. Place is old and the quality of the room showed the age. The beds were also terrible.

Overall Score4.0/ 5
Very quiet and cozy.

Formerly the Avenue Garden Hotel, our beautiful historic Victorian era property is located right on the St Charles Street Car line allowing our guests easy access to most exciting tourist locations in New Orleans such as the French Quarter, the Superdome, and more!Right on the main parade route, we make it easy for our guests to step just outside their doors to attend parades such as Zulu and Rex. What better way would there be to catch a gold painted coconut on your Mardi Gras Adventure and then duck back inside for a rest? We provide our guests with free high speed wireless internet, and a delicious continental breakfast with healthy options, breads and sweets to fit any pallet.Let us help your stay in classic New Orleans be a memorable one!
We believe the environment is very important. As such, we recycle all bottles and cardboard.

If you would like your towels replaced, please leave them on the floor or in the bathtub. If you hang them up, we will replace them only if asked.
