Wow! What a great hotel and even greater staff! Everyone has waited on us like royalty! It's right in the heart of everything...a few blocks from both the French Quarter and the Warehouse District. We will definitely be back! Thank you for helping to make our weekend great!

The hotel features good beds and locations. We thought the pillows were not the best. The one thing that bothered us was security. The patio was open to the street most of the night, an anyone could have walked in. The breakfast service was unique. They bring hot croissants, juice and coffee tea to your room every morning at your... More

This hotel is just off from the French Quarter and within easy walking distance to this as well as the Mercedes Benz Dome. We had booked two rooms for the four of us and all went well the entire trip. Staff are very helpful with registration and directions for possible meals and such. Rooms are well appointed and very clean.... More

We stayed in New Orleans for 3 nights. This hotel was a perfect location as it's 5 mins walk from the French Quarter - close enough to be easily accessible and not too close to the rowdy Bourbon Street night life. Also close to the street cars. Room was very comfortable and clean - a cozy room just the right... More

The st James hotel is terrific and at the price point is perhaps the best "bang per Buck" hotel in New Orleans. We were made to feel welcome from the very start by Michelle who is a terrific member of the st James staff. I echo the words of many prior reviewers who sung her praises and suggested that she...

The website described the property, so I won't do it here - wanted to stop and say that Ariel at the front desk was AWESOME! Checked us in and out with a smile, with enthusiasm, and with a helpful spirit. Plus, she saved me money when I had to change the date of my second stay within a week. Plus,... More

My boyfriend and I decided to go to New Orleans for 3 days and came across this hotel online. Cute, boutique style hotel. The lobby is very welcoming and spacious. The hotel is very close to everything, 10 min walk to Bourbon Street. Everyone that we came in contact with was very pleasant.

Groupon had a special for this hotel that we took advantage of. The hotel was situated in between the French Quarter and the Warehouse District. We walked everywhere from here! The room itself was a nice size with tons of windows on the corner of the building. We did hear a 6am truck every morning to pick up trash outside... More

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
