While one could not fault the location (nor the cost with a discount), the overall character is less than "shabby chic." The facility from the outside has all the gingerbread and charm you should expect from a "bed and breakfast" in New Orleans. The problem is all the rooms are inside and they are older than the city itself. The baths are rust stained, the walls are no longer plastered evenly and the floors don't match anywhere in the building. The rooms I saw were closets or slightly larger. If you go to New Orleans to be a tourist and come back to Streetcar only to sleep, you've found a great place. If you expect more from your lodgings, find a Super 8.
