“Oldest continuously operating streetcar in the world”
All aboard for a trip into New Orleans' past on the oldest continuously operating streetcar in the world! The mahogany seats, brass fittings and exposed ceiling light bulbs are from a day when plastic seats and aluminum rails were not even a thought. Rumbling around the ''neutral ground'' of St. Charles Avenue and Carrollton Avenue for more than 150 years, the streetcar symbolizes the charm and romance of the City of New Orleans. The route traditionally forms a 13.2-mile crescent from Carondelet at Canal Street in the Central Business District through the oldest and most majestic section of uptown New Orleans, around the Riverbend to Carrollton at Claiborne Avenue. Swaying along St. Charles Avenue through a tunnel Live Oaks, the streetcar passes dozens of antebellum mansions, historic monuments, Loyola and Tulane universities, the sweeping grounds of the Audubon Zoological Gardens, shopping centers, fine restaurants and hotels.
My husband and I stayed at this Inn in June 2016. When we got there, the room was hot and smelled like dirty wet carpet. Outside the door, sat a dirty metal trash can and two black bags of garbage. The office staff seemed miffed when we asking for another room. A smile and an apology would have gone a long way. They gave us another room which was passable. The bed was old and not very comfortable. The morning breakfast however was very good and the eating area was clean and charming.
