This hotel is located almost at the mid point between Tulane and Downtown. The trolley stop is about 2 blocks from the hotel. Room was decent size, free wifi and free gated parking. Room clean, maid service very good and quiet and only rooms fronting St. Charles Avenue would have any sort of view. About 5 block safe walk to...

Very good service at this Best Western. Helpful with their service and directions. Good Breakfast. Be careful of the traffic learn the routes in out with a good local map. Use the trolley and ask the desk people how to get on and off. Do not drive your car downtown unless you know the city real good.

The staff here is wonderful. Free parking (pretty sure it's one car per room. The rooms get nice and dark at night, and despite being on St. Charles everything was very quiet.

Tired of expensive big box hotels downtown? Stay in the Garden District -Quiet, lovely with lots of good restaurants, lovely houses and you can take the streetcar downtown in 20 minutes.

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
