My Daughter arranged a beautiful surprise vacation for my 60th birthday. One of the venues was Cajun Adventure - a swamp tour. Listed was pickup points in a brochure - one being in front of this Bed/Breakfast. A taxi dropped us off and we began our 15 - 20 minute wait.

Within minutes a woman opened the door and asked why we were there and we explained it was listed as a pick-up point for the tour. She then began a rather extensive tirade about air bnb customers being a direct threat to the establishment and implied we had some role in that. We moved 20 - 30 foot down the public sidewalk.

Within 5 - 10 minutes a small SUV pulled up a woman in her early 60s got out went up to the ST Charles and spoke briefly with the first woman. She then approached our party and began a rapid inquisition with questions ranging from who we were, where we were from, where we were going....... I almost felt like we had breached an unknown law in New Orleans and the FBI was now in full pursuit.

Finally, identifying herself as the owner and starting the air bnb rant I had enough of the assault and rude behavior and I clearly stated her concern was NONE of ours and I was through with her attitude. I assume she is not used to someone putting her in her place as she began disparaging me to my family. My daughter called the tour contacts and they were advised of the environment we were in.

They were super responsive and directed there pickup vehicle to our location immediately and we left the (Public) area. In short we did not stay at this venue but feel it very valuable for members to hear a different side of the personality of this experience.

The experience we had on a sidewalk in front of this establishment leads me to conclude the service and hospitality would be a similar disappointment and truly a blemish on a city that is well known for acceptance and hospitality.

I have stayed all over New Orleans. Hotels here have become more expensive and yet St Charles Guest house is still a bargain in the perfect location. This was my second stay and it was like catching up with old friends. Dennis takes a personal interest in every guest. The property is large enough so you have privacy but cozy enough - and quirky - to make you feel at home. A block away from the St Charles streetcar, there is no need for a car here if you are able to walk a little. I drove this time, though, and on street parking was safe, convenient - and free! Don't forget may hotels charge for parking now. The rooms in this historic property are comfortable and clean and I can't say enough about the personalized service. Stay on a Wednesday in the spring and you'll have a free show at Lafayette Square. Also close by public transportation is the new Pythian Food Hall - with dining choices for the whole family! Escape the French Quarter and explore the Garden District, starting at St. Charles Guest House!

I wanted to stay in a place that wouldn't be touristy and impersonal where it felt like home. The St. Charles Guest house was beyond my expectations, the staff was so kind,warm,inviting and a wealth of knowledge that it MADE my Mom and my trip. We stayed 8 days and Dennis was so extremely helpful and accommodating it really made this trip special for us. I can't thank them enough. The room was spacious and tidy, the place was spotlessly taken care of. You don't need a car when you stay here it is very centrally located the trolly is a short 3 min . Walk and Uber is available as well. Honestly,I wouldn't stay anywhere else in New Orleans you'd be waisting your $$. I plan on booking again for next year.

The St. Charles guest house has its own charm. I found my room to be a little dark but they were happy to accommodate me with an extra lamp. I also loved the white iron four poster bed in our room as well as the green and black tiles in our bathroom. It reminded me of a bygone era. I sat near the pool and wrote in my journal the first day there . We had a long talk with the owner Dennis and he told me about buying the place and fixing it up with his dad. We were on the first floor in the second building. One morning my husband got up early to help make coffee, there coffee was a little weak and they were amenable to some help. I enjoyed my oatmeal in the morning and it was nice that they served breakfast. The internet was spotty but I could use my phone as a modem and that helped.
