Wow, what an awesome house!  The proprietors did an amazing job with the pre-Katrina restoration of this beautiful old place...and kept it going just fine post-Katrina.  

They serve chicory coffee every morning and the Inn dogs, Milo and Buster, will keep your feet warm as you sip it.  Actually Milo will look at you with pitiful "feed me" eyes, and is not allowed to have table food...but the guests apparently can't help themselves.  Their dads are resigned to having an overweight black lab.

I spent hours in the parlor just looking at the carved fireplaces, curved wall transitions, mouldings, and plaster cast medalions.  THIS is New Orleans.

And you can catch the Canal Street streetcar right into the Quarter!

This was a wonderful getaway from the dismal hotel experience in New Orleans.  Innkeeper Monica was wonderful and the house is simply beautiful and well situated on Canal Street just north of downtown area.  The house is a raised center hall villa and is very picturesque.  Although decorated with many historical furnishings, it still features modern amenities and comfortable touches (the screened back porch with comfy couches for relaxing).  The house and surrounding neighborhood are peaceful and quiet.  Breakfast was delicious (advertised as continental but we were served full breakfast).  As for pricing, this was an absolute steal considering the location and easy access to main attractions.  The street car stops right outside for easy access south to Bourbon Street and others.  I would enthusiastically recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone wanting to visit New Orleans in the future...it's such an enjoyable, confortable experience.

This is a wonderful place to stay. I can't say enough good things about it--the decor and the architecture of the house are amazing, but the little things are what stood out the most to me: high-quality English soaps and products in the bathrooms, fluffy towels, and a bed that was nearly impossible to get out of. It has an authentic New Orleans feel to it (the trolley runs just outside), and the service is personal and attentive. We will be back again and again!

This is an utter gem, if you want to dissolve into classical revival architecture this is the place. It is like stepping on to the set of Gone with the Wind.

The building is decorated opulently with period pieces from the early 1900's, it was owned by a wealthy widow of a sheet metal baron.

A lazy dog stretches out in the hall, nonplussed by the guests. The history of the place is fascinating and the rooms pull you in and tempt you to become the next Tennessee Williams or similar artistic geniuses from the South.

There are orange trees in the parking lot... I challenge anyone not to fall under it's charming spell as you ascend the marble steps to the porch and open that swing door to the dark rich hues of a time gone by.

Go treat yourself or a loved one... Great for some R & R.

We just finished our wedding weekend here! Dawn and Monica were extremely helpful in planning every detail, making our wedding party who stayed in the house with us very welcome and pampered, working with our coordinators and vendors, and keeping the place all around beautiful 24 hours a day. Growing up here in NOLA before moving to Seattle, it was so nice to stay somewhere authentically New Orleans, and so close to both the Quarter and City Park. The streetcar line right in front of the house was a wonderful way for our friends to travel, especially since most of them had never been on one before, they absolutely loved it. We will definitely be staying here for our first anniversary next May.

My only gripe, and it is fairly minor to me, was my family friend who catered for us was unable to use the kitchen upstairs, despite my asking if it was okay beforehand. However, even though our food came out late because of this, everyone was served, and the ladies were more than willing to help. I would suggest that any other brides go over any outside catering plans with Monica and Dawn very clearly, to avoid any confusion like this. Still, I would definitely have my wedding here again if I had to do it over.

In love with this gorgeous inn. The entire accomodations were fantastic! Monica is the best hostess! Each breakfast was tasty! Our room was romantic and comfotable! The cable car stops directly in front making it convenient to get around. My husband and i will be back to this special gem.

I had the opportunity to stay at the Canal Street Inn while in New Orleans on business.  I travel regularly both domestically and globally for business.  I have never considered a guest house environment.  I like the loyalty points and other benefits of larger chain hotels - UNTIL THIS TRIP.  The environment was so welcoming that I felt like I was at home.  The fact the Canal Street Trolley stops in front of the home also was a huge bonus.  I attending my business meetings as well as toured New Orleans during my visit.  This was a great central location which provided local flare.  I will stay there again the next time I am in New Orleans and leave the big impersonal chains to other travelers.  

The staff and inn owners went above and beyond to take care of me during my visit.

We had our wedding reception in the garden at Canal Street Inn (around 100 guests) and it was PERFECT!!! I cannot say enough how beautiful the setting was, how accommodating Monica, Teresa, and Dawn all were. Monica helped with pre-wedding set up in terms of table/chair rentals, where all our food stations, bar, cupcakes, etc. should go. It was wonderful to have her there as a guide and to help day-of.

The memories I'll have from our reception are wonderful. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect spot.

If you are looking for a place to stay for the Jazz Festival - this is the place.  An easy 15 minute walk to the Fairgrounds, the streetcars run right in front of the Inn to take you down to Bourbon Street in 10 minutes, the Inn is clean, the breakfast terrific and Monica, the owner, wonderfully pleasant & helpful.  A fantastic weekend all the way around.

Fair warning, this might be a long review!

Where to start, I have no idea. From the moment we placed our bags in the front entryway of Canal Street Inn, we knew that we had landed somewhere special. This place is insanely gorgeous.

Let me begin by saying that my boyfriend and I have never stayed in a bed and breakfast before. We planned our vacation weeks in advance, and decided that we wanted to do some things that we had never done before. We decided to take the train into NOLA  and figured that we'd spend five days at Canal Street Inn to up the romanticism a bit. My significant other balked a bit because of the price (New Years/Holiday season prices ran a bit steep), but decided that we might as well go all in. He soon agreed that our stay was worth every cent and more.

From day one, Monica and the staff at Canal Street inn were both courteous and helpful. They explained to us how to take the trolley (which literally stops feet away from the inn) and even gave us tour tickets to use for our first day in the city. Each morning, a varied breakfast was served. It ranged from biscuits and gravy to eggs and grits; typical delicious southern fare.

Our room was spacious and cozy, with bottled water and bath robes provided in each room. The beds were comfortable and the room was impeccably decorated. To say that Monica and the staff here thought of everything to make our stay inviting and comfortable is an understatement.

This review is getting long, but I feel like I should add this part in as a testament of the thoroughness of our inn keeper. On New Years eve, we decided to take a day long tour of NOLA. We returned to our room to find a New Years hat / tiara, beads, and noisemakers sitting on our bed. What a thoughtful thing for them to do!

For those Yelpers who are considering staying here, please do. If not for the location (you can take the trolley down to the French quarter), but for hospitality in the very least. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience here and honestly feel that it has spoiled us to big chain hotels. I mean, how can you go back to staying at a Holiday Inn after this?

Thank you Monica and staff for your excellent hospitality. We will definitely be seeing y'all again!

We've been here twice now, both times in the Fall. It's a warm, welcoming place. Breakfasts are generous and satisfying.The staff are marvelous and so helpful. It's located right on the Canal St. Streetcar, so provides easy access to downtown or the park area, with its museums and other recreational opportunities. Monica is so sweet and knowledgeable, remembered our music preferences from the year before and steered us well. The only place we'll stay in NO!

Very cute B&B with a great location. The street car stops right out front and gets you to the French quarter in 10-15 minutes. The neighborhood is pleasant and felt safe. The house itself is very nice and has great rooms and common areas. We were doing a big road trip, so we were very happy with how comfy the beds were! The staff are also fantastic, super helpful and very pleasant, just really nice people. Really happy that we stayed here!

This was hands down the best experience I've had at a hotel/accommodations, and I've stayed at five star hotels like the Ritz.

The house is even more beautiful than the pictures. Monica and Michael are amazing, friendly, and knowledgable. You feel like you're home the second you check in. The rooms are well kept, and have everything you need, even a chi flatiron!! Everything this B&B purports to be, it is, plus some!!

It was my first time in NOLA and I fell in love with the city and this house. I will be visiting again and will stay here without hesitation.

Oh, and the breakfast was fantastic and something different every day! I stayed for 5 days 4 nights and didn't want to leave!

When you get there, make sure to ask Michael about the local spots!! And ask him to hook you up with Donna, the tour guide. She's friggin fantastic and will personalize your tour!

I can go on and on about this place but, well you get the point! :)

Loved staying here - owner is warm and makes you feel right at home.  Beds are very comfortable.  There are rooms on first floor with minimal steps - important when traveling with less mobile family and friends.  We had a wonderful Belgium waffle breakfast topped with sweetened bananas the first morn and eggs Benedict the second.  Restful front porch and back porch for coffee in the morning and to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening.  I will return.

Staying at the Canal Street Inn was such a glorious experience! I really loved everything about it. The house and the grounds were incredibly beautiful, breakfasts delicious, and Monica and Michael were so wonderful! I stayed with my friend for a girls trip, and it was our first time in NoLa. Ask them to hook you up with Donna, the tour guide, she'll show you just how awesome NoLa is! I have never been made to feel so welcome a guest anywhere. You don't need to look anywhere else for a wonderful experience.

P.S. They leave wine out for the guests, don't be the weirdo to take a full bottle to your room! It's not nice, it's not cheap, and you deprive other guests of having the same relaxing experience.
