Saw this hotel while riding the streetcars in N.O. several years ago and this trip decided to stay there. The off street parking worked out great even with a Suburban, the staff was friendly and the hotel was interesting in a quirky way as I had hoped. Unfortunately, it isn't a preserved old hotel, the lobby and rooms are completely new though the layout of the rooms and hallways aren't the cookie-cutter sort of thing that is typical in most hotels. The convenience to the streetcars is the best feature in many ways and you'll find good restaurants in the Garden District to walk to or ride the streetcar to. Make sure you buy an all day Jazzy Pass from the streetcar operator and you can get on and off all day for $3.00. The hotel breakfast is very complete and nicely done, eggs, Canadian bacon, cereals, waffles, etc. One thing that isn't clear on the website is the idea of a city view room. This simply means that you will have a view out to the parking lot, or streets. The inside rooms look into the courtyard. Probably no good reason to get the city view unless you know your room faces the front of the hotel on St. Charles.
