Wonderful hotel just outside of the French Quarter. The service is amazing, they provide coffee and croissants every morning to your room, and the hotel is real quite after a night out. Really affordable for what you get and close to a lot of attractions.

This hotel was wonderful! The hotel itself is gorgeous, the check-in staff and all other staff members (including the gentleman who brought our breakfast to the room and who always seemed to be cleaning up the grounds) were fantastic, the room was very luxurious...it was great! You even get a huge, delicious, fresh Otis Spunkmeyer cookie at check-in. I will... More

Went to have breakfast at Cafe du Monde and see the French Quarter and Bourbon Street, a quick 24 hr trip. The price and location of the hotel were excellent. I loved my room and the jump start breakfast of croissants in the am delivered to the room. As the building is older people, those with kids, fail to realize... More

The staff was friendly and super helpful. The hotel It self was clean but the variety of smells was a little much. Disappointed with the vending machine (they were empty). The pool was tiny and you had to go to another building to access it. The king size mattress was horrible! There was a hump in the middle and then... More

Bed was uncomfortable at best, although the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was difficult getting over all the different smells, some of which were not very pleasant. The elevator had a nasty odor that made us want to use the stairs. It was very clean , just don't know where the strange smells were coming from .

After getting off to a slightly bumpy start, the entire team at St. James did everything in their power to make our stay exception, and it WAS. Rocky, Cantrell and Pedro were notably friendly and accommodating. We loved our room, we loved the location (close to everything, but secluded when compared to Bourbon St), the morning croissants were a great... More

Stayed here for one night while on vacation. The rooms were small, I thought check in was confusing. There is valet parking for a fee. Very loud during the night with people's coming and going in the halls. Because of the noise probably wouldn't stay here again. Hotel was clean and staff was nice.

This hotel will be where I stay in my future New Orleans trips. The room was great. The staff was awesome and very helpful. Possibly the best staff I've ever dealt with at a hotel. Location was awesome. Near the French Quarter and near public transportation.

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.
