Sitting amidst many giant hotels is the more modestly sized St James. Most notable features are it is around the corner from a great breakfast joint and that not so easily or cheaply obtained at larger chains. Very close to the street car. My favorate was conversing with first floor staff who epitomized the NOLA charm

We drove into New Orleans, which probably didn't help our mood as we arrived at 11:00pm and we were pooped. The receptionist was very polite and would have checked us in quickly, had he not answered the phone and instead of making the caller wait, he proceeded to book them a room. He put them on hold right as he...

Clean room and friendly staff. Valet was very quick as well. I will definitely be staying there again and would recommend this place to anyone looking to stay here. The location was also second to none.

Where is the Wifi? Really enjoyed the historic feel of the hotel, but high speed Internet that doesn't continually go out is not too much to ask. Loved the location of the hotel and the staff was helpful.

We stayed here for a weekend visit and really enjoyed the hotel. Our room was big with a nice bathroom and very comfortable bed. The location is very convenient, between Canal and Poydras, outside the congestion and noise of the Quarter and just a short walk to the World War II Museum. Our room, in the rear building, was very...

Overall, this was an average hotel. The location is convenient to the French Quater. Breakfast was simple, coffe, juice and croissant. Staff was nice. Valet parking fee was outrageous. I would definitely use public parking just across the street. We didn't know it was so close to the hotel.

This hotel is charming, beautiful, and well cared for. The rooms are nice and big. Within walking distance to all the action, or one block from street cars. Far enough away that it is quiet. Parking in gated lot across the street. Every morning you can get free hot croissants, coffee, and tea. This was our first time in new...

Loved the atmosphere of hotel & room. Perfect for our first time in New Orleans. Close to French Quarter but far enough away to be quiet. Nice to have breakfast delivered to the room each morning. Will definitely stay here again.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 86 guestrooms celebrates this intimate connection with elegant West Indies decor and complete with rooftop terraces and charming courtyards. ... more   less
