Checked last night after many hours of flights and delays. Burton was as pleasant and attentive as could possibly be, and seemed genuinely happy to have me as a guest. Offered ice water and asked if I needed anything else. Eased the travel pains. I was upgraded to a King Suite (nice perk of being a Choice Hotels Diamond member),... More

We stayed as a group of four 21/22 year old Australian girls for 3 nights in July 2014. Absolutely fantastic hotel which we cannot fault - staff were all so lovely and helpful (they even kindly offered to dry our laundry following a failed attempt at letting our washed clothes dry in our room). Great location, room amenities were all... More

The service at the St James Hotel is excellent from the reception at the front desk at check in to the morning coffee and croissants delivered by Greg in the morning. Greg has a wonderful demeanor and is a welcoming face to see first thing as you start an exciting day in New Orleans. With St James great location all... More

Stayed here 5 days. This is a historical property within walking distance of most areas. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Meghan was most helpful, from calling ahead for us to her great dinner recommendations. A small breakfast was delivered to our room each morning. Elevator was down one day.

We were in town for a conference at the convention center. Very convenient location, within walking distance of the convention center and other New Orleans attractions. Parking was across the street and expensive, but that's to be expected. The hotel itself is in a couple old buildings, with lots of charm and character. It needs a good cleaning, though. When...

Hotel is 2 houses with a pleasant courtyard between them, but there's no central dining room. A complimentary breakfast is served in the room which sounds good however the timing of delivery of the food was erratic, twice more than 20 minutes after the time we'd requested, once earlier. There was no table in the room so we ate our... More

Stayed here this past 4th of July weekend for Essence Festival and they met and exceeded all of our expectations. The location is great, near the convention center, Harrah's, bourbon st and other attractions. The valet service is a great option at a good price. Even with all the activity and added crowds the festival brought every single employee we... More

This was our first time in this hotel. It is located in a perfect spot. Quick walking distance in a nice area to Mothers restaurant, Harrahs casino, streetcar, Aquarium, Insectarium, nice bars and restaurants. Staff was friendly and asked several times how our stay was and if there was anything they could do to help.

We had booked a multi-centre holiday and needed to book at least one night in a hotel for the best airfare - so we decided that we would book this hotel as part of our overall package. It had been a long journey, London to New York then change planes for the trip to New Orleans. When we arrived we... More

The location of this hotel can't be beat. You can easily walk to the French Quarter, Bourbon Street, Aquarium, Harrah's and the Riverfront. But you are away from most of the crowds and noise of these busy tourist areas when you want to come back to your hotel and unwind. The front desk will valet your car ($34 after taxes),... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As a 2014 Certificate of Excellence Winner, The St. James Hotel is one of New Orleans' finest luxury boutique hotels. New Orleans' Creole-Caribbean influence has never been more alive thanks to its recent restoration completed in 2013. Located in the Banks Arcade, a 19th century landmark once the center of the Caribbean sugar and coffee trade, each of our 86 guestrooms celebrates this intimate connection with elegant West Indies decor and complete with rooftop terraces and charming courtyards. ... more   less
