Booked last minute and were lucky enough to get a room over the weekend (stayed 3 nights). Valeted the car which was a bit pricey at 29 plus tax (not many other convenient options so was glad I used the service). Was greeted at the front counter by Machiel who was very helpful. Went straight to our room where the... More

My daughter and I stayed overnight at this hotel when Greyhound was late getting us to our Amtrak train, but that's a different review. I was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is in the downtown area, so its a quick walk to restaurants and sightseeing. The hotel room was very beautiful and clean. My only complaint is that the water... More

I have to confess I was not quite as charmed with this hotel as other reviewers. It is central, an easy walk to the French Quarter and the St Charles, Canal and Riverfront streetcar lines. The staff is friendly. Someone failed to tell us that the hotel is under renovation making the lobby cramped and dusty. We asked for a... More

Hotel is a great historic find. Yes historic, so prepare yourself for smaller rooms, smaller showers and everything that comes with a historic building. The staff was AMAZING! Front desk was super friendly, gave us the history of the place and we even had a staff member show us around. Hotel is a little bit of a walk from the... More

What a nice old hotel! Room was very nice and clean. Love the high ceiling and the tall windows. Nice to sit in the courtyard, very quiet and secluded. Except for the dump truck that came at 5:30AM and the water pressure was the only downside. Staff was excellent and very friendly. Complimentary breakfast of croissant, orange juice and coffee...

This is such a neat hotel - charming New Orleans, wood floors, high ceilings, courtyards, complimentary coffee with croissants delivered to your room each morning, near all the action, but tucked away on a quiet block of Magazine - its a real gem! A wonderful trip for me and my husbands 25th!

We stayed here for a Thanksgiving vacation from 11/26 - 30. Our room was super clean and large. Housed in a former coffee exchange property, it held the gracious past with the current perspective. Each morning, we had croissants, butter and jam delivered to our room along with cafe au laid and orange juice on a silver tray. It was... More

This hotel is close to the Port of New Orleans, and thus caters to travelers who arrive early in the morning from Caribbean cruises, but are planning to stay in the city a few more days. That was exactly my situation, and I got lucky when I found the St. James! The floor plan of the hotel is meandering; I... More

A charming typical old time New Orleans Hotel with decorative wrought iron front, but updated rooms. Located near Poydras, a street used to get to many districts, attractions, airport with easy drive to I-10. Easy walking distance to the streetcars, restaurants, casino, Riverwalk, and to all the French Quarter has to offer. Staff is very accommodating and helpful, making our... More
