Having never been to New Orleans, I chose this hotel based on the reviews I read on here. I did not want a high-rise chain hotel but something with charm. My expectations were not 4 star, so I was pleasantly surprised by our nice room with a balcony and the great front desk staff. We were not right on the... More

The reviews I had read previously influenced my decision in choosing the St James. The reviews spoke of the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff and the charm of the hotel. I liked the location and I was able to land a very reasonable price for my mid-week stay. My overall impression is that the hotel is not quite ready... More

I very very rarely write reviews online. But my experience at the St. James last night really warrants a review to alert potential travelers that the pictures online are not what you get. Apologies for the long review, but I did want to highlight the ok, the good, and the very bad. I booked the St. James for three nights... More

We stayed here on a Monday night. We got into town pretty early (about 10am) and they let us check in early which was awesome and valet parking was only $33 for all night until 4pm the next day which is a great price for the city and the price of the room was extremely reasonable and for the price...

I stayed here for two nights after working in/around the gulf coast and it was the perfect spot to explore New Orleans from. Walking distance to the French Quarter, without the noise of the French Quarter, the building itself is beautiful, it's decor straight from the West Indies. The price was very reasonable and considering how little time I actually... More

When traveling to NOLA I was not looking for the typical loud, party, New Orleans experience. I like history and architecture. This hotel was a great find. The building was built in 1833 and has gone through many incarnations over the years. The staff is very nice and helpful. We had an issue with the shower the first morning and... More

After researching hotels near or on Poydras close to the New Orleans Arena, this hotel seemed to be the one we should try. The main selling point for me was the numerous posts pointing out the excellent staff by name. When reviewers remember the names of staff, you should really pay attention, because that means that the staff was exceptional... More

My first impression of St. James, great location. The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly and overall, good for one night but one of the reasons why we booked with St. James was because of the free shuttle to the airport listed on the kayak site. When it was time for us to leave, a taxi was waiting for... More

This hotel was chosen by my daughter & her boyfriend who decided to visit New Orleans for a long weekend & invited us along. I visit New Orleans about twice a year & wasn't too familiar with this hotel although I had walked & driven by many times I thought it might be too far away from the French Quarter.... More
