Certificate of Excellence


Certificate of Excellence
As a 2014 Certificate of Excellence Winner, The St. James Hotel is one of New Orleans' finest luxury boutique hotels. New Orleans' Creole-Caribbean influence has never been more alive thanks to its recent restoration completed in 2013. Located in the Banks Arcade, a 19th century landmark once the center of the Caribbean sugar and coffee trade, each of our 84 guestrooms celebrates this intimate connection with elegant West Indies decor and complete with rooftop terraces and charming courtyards.

Donnie was amazingly welcoming and helpful. Great visit, comfy bed. We loved the continental breakfast in bed. We will definitely recommend this place to friends. The courtyard and swimming pool are darling.

I had a 3 night stay here and from beginning to end EVERYONE was so polite and hospitable. This place is ideal because it's near plenty restaurants yet a 10 min walk to Bourbon st. There's on site security every night, so as a solo female traveler, that was comforting. The hotel manager, Donnie, was very professional, accommodating and suggested places to check out to eat which honestly made my trip better. He suggested the Ruby Slipper, shrimp and grits, and the food was Fabulous and only a 3 minute walk from the hotel! Breakfast in the morning was simple yet so good and definitely helps with saving money too. I love that there's a microwave and fridge, so it saves with food costs as well. Being frugal with food costs allowed me to spend on others stuff like tours,etc.:) Definitely staying here again!!
