"The Excellence of the Saint Charles Guest House is deeply rooted in the heart and spirits of the owners and their employees. As a single woman traveling alone in New Orleans, I was truly blessed to have two of the Saint Charles local employees, Rene and Leslie as my guardian angels. Rene and Leslie accompanied myself and other visitors on tours throughout New Orleans ensuring our safety and future return. What the Guest House lacks in frills, it's employees make-up ten-fold in genuine "local" hospitality."

"We stayed in a wonderful private room which had so much charm. It is two block from the trolley headed to the French Quarter and has a swimming pool and a continental breakfast that consists of more than coffee and doughnuts! Plus we received free wireless internet! Overall a great place to stay if you are headed for the Jazz capital of the world."

"The St. Charles Guest House is about as close to a European guest house as you're ever going to get in this country."

"Get back to this town while it's still around to experience, and stay at the St. Charles, still the best deal in town!"

General Information: The 1890 St. Charles Guest House welcomes you to New Orleans and the historic Garden District where you'll find some of the most significant architecture in Louisiana. We're definitely low-tech and unpretentious (no phones or TVs, but we do have Wi-Fi), and many of our rooms have antiques, so the overall feeling is quaint and quintessentially old-New Orleans.

Our hotel guests have a secluded pool and patio, and many of our guests who are attending weddings around town use it as a pre or post wedding impromptu party site! Guests are invited to fix themselves coffee or tea, afternoons in our poolside room, where they've been known to have sightings of our "good ghosts", the Snowden twins from Liverpool. The St. Charles Guest House and New Orleans are an ideal combination for a relaxed, affordable - yet rich - experience. They don't call us the "Big Easy" for nothing!

Payment Accepted: Visa, MasterCard.

Rates: (Prices quoted in US Dollars).

$45-105/night

Complimentary Bakery Breakfast is served in our Breakfast Room.


"The St. Charles Guesthouse on Prytania Street in New Orleans is the "best kept secret" of New Orleans. I never come to this part of the country without staying with the Hiltons, who have become my friends over the years. Every room has it's own distinct characteristics, and you really feel as though you are staying at someone's home when you are there. It is convenient not only to downtown and the French Quarter, but just as close to the famous Garden District as well. Having traveled all across the United States and the world, I would recommend that anyone who places value on the "quality" rather that "quantity" of where they stay, owes themselves the experience of the St. Charles Guesthouse."

"The owner and staff (most of whom both live and work at the guesthouse) are unfailingly generous with information and insight and go out of their way to make visitors feel at home in the guesthouse and the city. The location is a huge bonus: tucked one block off the St. Charles streetcar line between the French Quarter and the Garden District and uptown. The prices are quite low, and the unique spirit of the place would seem to be what attracts many repeat visitors - laidback, unpretentious, quirky - all these adjectives apply and they make for an unforgettable and affordable stay in one of New Orleans' loveliest neighborhoods."

"Fabulous place we so glad we got the chance to explore the funky, friendly neighborhood of the garden district. We couldn't have had a better place to spend vacation and what a great place to be in the middle of New Orleans. Great accommodations, friendly locals, walking distance to the Quarter, who could ask for more? Nice pool area and wonderful staff."

"This was by far one of the best travel experiences I've ever had. I have traveled across the country as a recruiter for universities and in Europe for leisure; I've stayed in fancy but anonymous hotels as well as fancy and anonymous bed and breakfasts, but this place had a distinct and endearing charm that is, quite frankly, incomparable."
