This hotel was a great buy. The front desk was wonderfully nice and helpful, every day going out of there way to make sure we were enjoying our stay. The rooms were nice, spacious, and had a bit of New Orleans flavor to them. The lobby was nice and there is a very pretty courtyard where we spent many evenings... More

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. Very clean, neat and tidy. Rooms were beautifully decorated in a period style without being too fussy. Great flat screen TV. Plenty of space in our room although our friends were in another room and it was very small. We paid the same and booked at the same time. So rooms could... More

I had to be in New Orleans on business and my husband chose the St James for us. WOW, what a great spot. The location is walking distance to the French Quarter and on a quiet street. There are many restaurants very close by, yet you are out of the cra-cra-ness of the Quarter. The hotel itself is historic but... More

This hotel is very charming. Its a 5 min walk to Burbon St and a 5 min walk to the French Market. Its location is great. The rooms were spacious, clean and the bed was comfy. The pool is a little small but thats ok. Every morning they delivered the best croissants Ive ever had with coffee or juice. We... More

I booked the ST. James hotel for my birthday trip to New Orleans. My stay was very pleasant which made it very enjoyable. The location was perfect and just a short walk to fine dining, shopping and Bourbon street! The highlight of my stay was when the front desk receptionist Arial sang me Happy Birthday! Besides that she went out... More

The staff is so friendly and accommodating that they make this hotel one of the best as far as service that I've ever stayed in. The price is right, the location is convenient (a couple of blocks off Canal), although the rooms are fairly small. The in-room, complimentary continental breakfast is nice and you pick the delivery time. The enclosed... More

This was a great hotel that is very close to the French Quarter but not right in it. We had a King Suite and it was great. Good size with its own terrace. Loved the good quality Bath & Body Works toiletries and the breakfast brought to our room each morning. Yes, it is just a croissant and coffee but... More

This hotel is in a great location. I stayed 4 nights at this hotel with a friend & it was our first time visiting New Orleans. It was easily within walking distance of the French quarter, Harrah's, Jackson square & other great hot spots in the city. The front desk was always friendly & willing to assist us with any... More

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

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
