My husband and I stayed here in mid-May as part of a six-night Paris vacation to celebrate his birthday. After reading many rave reviews online, we had high expectations and were not disappointed: we were upgraded to a beautiful junior suite; enjoyed the quiet charm and lovely hotel gardens and club (a pleasure to return to after full days of sightseeing); and were impressed by the helpful and attentive service (great job from the concierge staff).
This a a unique property, decorated with whimsy and class. It is a bit further out than many hotels (located in the upscale 16th arrondisement), but metro stops are just one block (Port Dauphine) and two blocks (Victor Hugo) away, and there are cafes, patisseries, bistros and restaurants within easy walking distance. If you value beauty, excellent service and amenities, and appreciate being slightly removed from the tourist centers of Saint Germain, the Marais, or the Champs Elysees, the Saint James provides a terrific experience. I think they should be rated five stars, instead of four.
