A St. Charles Avenue address says something about a person – even if you are only going to live here for a few days. Known for its canopy of live oaks trees, breathtaking mansions and the iconic green streetcar, a St. Charles Avenue hotel is the perfect choice for visitors looking for a real New Orleans experience outside, but not out of reach of, the French Quarter.
Along with grand architecture, St. Charles Avenue has a number of fine restaurants. It’s also home to Audubon Park, just across the streetcar tracks from Tulane and Loyola universities. If you’re a runner, you’ll see tons of locals out jogging along the streetcar tracks every day. Why not join them and work off that bread pudding you had for dinner last night? What’s more, St. Charles runs parallel to Magazine Street – six miles of one-of-kind dining and shopping opportunities. The locals love it. You will, too.
The St. Charles Streetcar travels the entire length of the avenue and is a convenient and rather charming way to get where you’re going without having to worry about parking. It travels from Uptown, to the Garden District, to the Arts District to the Central Business District and Canal Street, just steps from the French Quarter.
