I walked into this hotel while passing by while on vacation and I was captured by this hotel's attention to details. The lobby was uber sophisticated, coffee setup in the lobby was wonderful and I checked out their lobby restroom and they had hygiene products available as a courtesy. The pool and courtyard was very nice as well. I was... More

I would recommend NOT staying at the St. James Hotel in New Orleans! It was a chaotic mess! One poor girl working at the front desk and there needed to be at least two other people working with her! Felt real bad for her! Frustrating! I was told the hotel had no parking. But another family that I knew was... More

We really like this hotel and have stayed here before. It is convenient to the French Quarter, WWII Museum and the convention center area. Nicely decorated, the rooms are comfortable and nicely appointed. The staff is friendly and very helpful. It is quite nice to spend time in the morning sitting in the area between the two main buildings. Having... More

We started the week without the air working (HOT), but who can control a chiller when it breaks? Help was on the way. A special thanks to Ingrid, Ariel and Machiel for being so helpful with our wants and needs. These ladies can be found at the front desk with a welcome smile, a great personality and loads of information... More

I stayed here a year ago and loved it. I plan on staying again this summer too. The parking fee is high but is all over New Orleans in the Quarter. Very friendly and helpful desk staff. The room is old NOLA style but comfortable. The location is great, walking distance to most things in the Quarter. Close to WWII... More

I stayed at this hotel for a weekend in New Orleans birthday bash. Great location to all the sights and sounds of New Orleans. Jon and Ingrid were exceptional in making us all feel welcomed. Anything thing we needed they were on-top-of. The rooms are very nice, yet have the old time feel to them. Also, the continental breakfast was... More

The property is a well maintained older building on Magazine Street, with plenty of great restaurants near. The rooms are tastefully done marble in the baths, wood floors, suites have two rooms with fridge, safe, full size sofa, two tv's (lots of channels), and a comfortable bed. The hotel is almost done with a renovation (our room was really nice).... More
