Historic Streetcar Inn Review New OrleansThis is one of those times when I’d like to gush over-the-top superlatives about my experience at this place.  The Historic Streetcar Inn  (HSI) deserves every single one of them I can dish out.

While it’s easy to spend hundreds of dollars a night for hotel rooms in New Orleans (and I have), it’s not so easy to find value-priced accommodations that are comfortable and ideally located.

The HSI is on St. Charles Avenue, the main drag from  “downtown” (the CBD / French Quarter) up and through the fabled Garden District.  HSI is close enough in you can walk to the Quarter, should you choose, but why not take one of the legendary New Orleans streetcars  – they stop right outside the hotel’s door!  The Inn is made up of multiple victorian age homes divided up into hotel rooms.

Check-in just takes a minute after you’re let in the secured front door.  I was in Room 11, and it was on the large side with full bath and close to the front door.  Walk down the end of the hallway and there is always fresh hot premium brand coffee (Abita Roasting) and iced lemon water.  There are both snack and soda vending machines.

There are half a dozen eateries within spitting distance of the front door, some open very late. There is a Walgreens two blocks up the avenue if you’ve forgot toiletries or need some grocery items for your room.

Bed was very soft, everything in the room worked, the lamps have plug-ins for your chargers, one had other types of plug-ins. Free wi-fi, or course.

All the help I interacted with were cordial and helpful, tho I didn’t have that many questions since I previously lived in the city.

Kudos to Edwin for the fast, efficient checkout.

Did I mention the price?  Except for holidays and festival weeks, it seems it’ll run you about $50 weeknights, and double that weekends.  Well worth it.
