St. Charles Guest House
A low-tech B&B in charming location.
Staying here offers a grassroots B&B experience. The property is comfortable and restful, offering Wi-Fi but no TVs or phones in the rooms. There is a secluded pool and patio area. This isn't to say that you will feel deprived. More than 1,000 books stock shelves throughout the house, and the inn's website is chock full of recommendations for walks, tours, restaurants and other activities in New Orleans. The innkeepers are as devoted to hospitality now as they were when they opened their doors decades ago. While most of the English-style bedrooms have private baths, the facilities for a few are actually located across a common hallway. Guests willing to walk a few extra steps pay less for this arrangement. Tea and coffee are on offer at all hours.
