Canal Street Inn
Ranked #21 of 142 New Orleans B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 April 2012

We just returned from a wonderful 3 night stay at the Canal Street Inn. This was my first time to stay at a bed and breakfast and I was a little worried that I would not have the privacy that a hotel or rental property would provide. I was wrong. The owner Monica did a fantastic job by being friendly, helpful and accomodating without being overly pushy. The house is absolutely beautiful and it's right on the red street car line. The room we stayed in (#3) was very private and we never heard any other guests. Also the breakfast was always tasty and I would suggest a visit to the Canal Street Bistro, which has amazing food as well. Overall, I'd recommend this B&B for anyone that is looking for a great place to stay when visiting New Orleans.

Room Tip: We stayed in room # 3 which is more secluded as it is upstairs and away from the dining and living r...

On my first trip to New Orleans I stayed in a large suite (Room #6) at the Canal Street Inn. Not only is the home beautiful with wood floors, high ceilings, stained glass, chandeliers, and a lovely outdoor courtyard, but it is supremely comfortable and conveniently located on the Street Car line. I have stayed in many bed and breakfast establishments, and my stay at the Canal Street Inn was perhaps the best over-all. I enjoyed a hearty breakfast, the luxury of a historic home, the comfort of a large room (huge bathroom, private parlor, bed room, and walk-in closet), and the convenience of being just a 10-minute street car ride from the Quarter.
Stay here when you come to New Orleans!

Location- Fantastic, Access to downtown- Wonderful (street car stop in front of Inn), Management- warm, friendly - Exactly what we would expect from a New Orleans Host. We will absolutely stay at the Canal Street Inn when we return to New Orleans, as will our family and friends. PS……..Homemade Breakfast is incredible! Kari&Alex

My wife and I stayed at the Canal Street Inn for 5 nights in early December. We were having difficulty finding a room after we booked airline tickets for this weekend and discovered there was a home Saints game and LSU were playing that weekend. A friend had stayed at the Inn and recommended it, as luck would have it there was a room available.

Monica is an amazing hostess and the accomadations were excellent. Each morning we were treated to a nice little home made breakfast that was a little different each day. She has a Kuerig coffee machine so you can make yourself a gourmet coffee, tea or hot chocolate. There is always a bottle of wine in the parlor for guests to enjoy.

This place couldn't be more convenient since the trolley is right outside the front door. It takes only a few minutes to get to the French Quarter and any other stop along the trolley route. There is also an amazing Italian restaurant within walking distance if you don't want to go downtown.

We loved it and would definitely stay there again. We travel a lot and this experience helped us decide B&Bs might be our place of choice for lodging in the future.

My wife and I spent last weekend in New Orleans for a romantic get-away, and highly recommend the Canal Street Inn. The home is lovely, accomodations are clean and spacious, and Monica is a wonderful hostess!! The location is excellent, being close to the French Quarter, Garden District, Superdome, Arena, WW II museum, etc.

If you are going to New Orleans, take our advice and stay at the Canal Street Inn. It's simply a wonderful bed & breakfast at a very reasonable price! Be sure you have coffee or a wine on the back porch overlooking the garden or on the front porch watching the trolley cars!

We stayed at the Canal Street Inn for two nights during the BCS Championship Game and could not be more pleased with our trip. Monica and her dog, Allie, were outstanding hostesses, the hotel is beautiful, and the breakfasts were delicious. We strongly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone heading to New Orleans.

Loved this house. Beautiful, glamorous, spacious rooms with all the important details. Monica is a new owner so she has passion and she is very responsive. Clean, quiet and great in terms of location. We did not want to stay in the noisy French Quarter and this house is close to everything. Garden district, French Quarter, Magazine Street. We had an incredible stay and would be back for sure. Also she and her husband gave us great directions and tour ideas. They even made maps for us.

Room Tip: We loved room 6. very large.
