The hotel was nice and in a good location. Walking distance to French Quarter. Staff was friendly, room lovely and clean with mini-fridge. Bathroom could have been cleaner. Looked like 3 year old did caulking. Non-existent water pressure. Shower wouldn't stay on. There were times no hot water. Complained, nothing done.

Overall our stay was a pleasant experience. The room service breakfast was a nice touch. Convient to the French Quarters. Only drawback was the lack of warm water. Staff was informative and friendly. Adele, who check us in was most helpful . Room was clean and comfortable.

Where to begin??? Well, start with getting to curbside and then parking, an interesting experience anywhere in NOLA… there is no clear place to stop and unload whether you are in some commercialized vehicle or your own. Coming in like we did at 6:30 pm on a Sunday, there was no assistance with luggage, nor even a cart to load...

Great place to stay in NOLA! It was the perfect location to visit the French quarter within walking distance and lots of nearby restaurants and eateries. The service was excellent, they were very accommodating to our busy schedule. Included breakfast was great and was delivered exactly on time.

Smart, historic, and comfortable. Steps from cable cars. Attended a convention at the Marriat next door. Chose St James for quiet and cost. Also, i just love the historic​ building and neighborhood. So cool.

I am a Choice Hotel Rewards card holder. I recently became aware of their top tier Ascend Collection of hotels. They are all in historic properties. We live just outside of New Orleans but we're attending a concert and didn't want to drive home so we booked 2 nights here. It was a lovely experience. The front desk staff couldn't...

We had a fabulous experience at St. James & would highly recommend it to anyone. Once you check in you can walk to anywhere in the French Quarter. The complimentary breakfast delivered to our room was a nice touch.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
