My wife and I spent a 3 day weekend at the St James in celebration of our 20th anniversary. We were very pleased with the accommodations, the food (Scarlet was very good) and amazed by the history…it was like staying in a museum. The bed was very comfortable, we slept well (though, as others have noted, bring some earplugs/white noise for the trains), we were very impressed with how well the property has been restored and maintained in spite of its age. We had a great stay, and will be back.
We stayed at the iron flat. The space is amazing and up to date. My mom stayed in the bedroom and I stayed on the pullout bed (from the couch). Online it seems as if this pullout bed is a part of the stay, but I received a call the day of checkin saying it’s an extra 35. This should be clear at booking not checkin. This was disappointing! The trains sirens are extremely loud. If you’re a light sleeper, this is not your place to stay. I had a sound machine, ear plugs, and even at one time a tv going, but nothing drowned the train horns-NOTHING! Staff was responsive and respectful. There was ice outside of our room. Maintenance was quick and salted (thank you for keeping us safe).
The St. James hotel is elegant and welcoming. Everyone we encountered was helpful. The Port was conveniently located and so much fun! Our room was spacious, and the most comfortable sleep we’ve experienced at a hotel. We’ll be back!
Great hotel, very comfortable setting. Sit in the library and read the paper and talk with anyone who will listen. It’s a shame Jimmys pub isn’t open and the restaurant is closed two days a week but there are many places to eat and visit.
Stayed for a long weekend and made good use of the restaurant, room service and the basement bar. Food is amazing, staff was very helpful. Room needed a little cleaning when we arrived but they took care of it with a quick phone call.
What a beautiful hotel, our stay was fantastic! The friendly helpful staff, room, dining, parking and overall beauty of the building was great. We walked around and viewed the exceptional decor and history of this building. We will return in the summertime when we can also walk the downtown shops and along the river walk.
This is a beautiful hotel. Literally like stepping back in time. From the rooms themselves or just walking around the hotel, everything is like looking into the past. But they have the most amazingly comfortable sheets on the beds! Actually bought a set for my house after staying there.
Took advantage of cyber Monday sale. My wife likes going to st james hotel and other boutique type hotels. Beds are cozy. Even though floors creak and things aren't perfect it adds to the charm. Will be back!
Husband got sick from hotel restaurant and was up all night vomiting. Right next to train tracks, that go ALL night. Left dirty food trays on the hallway floor for over 24 hours. Don’t use fitted sheets on beds. Got what was supposed to be a NICE suite and could still hear the room next door every time they washed hands or took a bath. Not worth the money.
We we treated so well here. Even though the hotel was at capacity, we felt the service was above and beyond. The Premium Queen Room was spacious, beautiful and unique. Breakfast was superb at the Restaurant.
