Canal Street Inn (circa 1912), a beautifully restored Neo-Classical style villa, is nestled under centuries-old live oaks on world-famous Canal Street, just a short streetcar ride from the French Quarter. In fact, we are right on the streetcar line – with direct access to St Charles Avenue, the Garden District, the Mississippi Riverfront and City Park. The bed and breakfast is abundantly, yet tastefully furnished with antiques from around the world, family heirlooms, ancestral photographs, and artifacts either left by former residents or collected by your hosts from their travels. All six guestrooms are furnished with antiques and reproductions along with queen and king size beds, private baths (some with whirlpool tubs), telephones with voice mail, wireless internet access, and cable TV. The house is surrounded by gardens on all sides. The ancient live oak trees literally embrace the house, their branches swooping almost to the ground. The lush tropical foliage is interspersed with bright colorful flowers of each season. The sunken patio is the perfect place to enjoy a good book and a glass of wine as you watch streetcars lazily amble up and down Canal Street.

The location was perfect... a quite neighborhood only minutes away from the French Quarter via the streetcar, which stops right outside the front door... the rooms were lovely, the breakfasts were delicious and the staff was professional and personable. We couldn't have asked for more. Susan & Craig

This is a gorgeous and well-run B&B, convenient to everything and spacious and well-decorated throughout. Our room was beautiful and comfortable, with ceilings that seemed to rise to infinity. Our hosts were welcoming and accommodating and provided perfect suggestions for outings (e.g., LA Children's Museum is great for a tiny grandchild when it's hot outside.) It was a great experience.

I stayed at the Canal Street Inn for a weekend girls' trip in August 2013. This was our first experience staying at a bed and breakfast, but I heard great things about them. So I had high expectations. I must say, the Canal Street Inn exceeded my expectations! The ambiance makes you feel as though you are a part of New Orleans. Monica and the staff are amazing! The food was delicious! And the room was beautiful and comfortable. Oh, and the fact that the streetcar stops right in front of the inn is icing on the cake! I will DEFINITELY stay at the Canal Street Inn any time I'm in New Orleans in the future. No questions asked!

We were staying in New Orleans for a couple of nights following a cruise and chose the Canal Street Inn--what a fabulous choice. My husband wasn't feeling well after getting off the ship, and the staff was so attentive. They provided me a breakfast tray to take to him and were so very helpful. The Inn was spa-like--wine was provided, along with water, coffee/tea; bathrobes were awaiting us, along with soft music and all the comforts of home. The streetcar stop is directly in front of the Inn, (quick French Quarter Access) and it is extremely close to a couple of quaint restaurants and a drug store. I highly recommend this B&B!
