The hotel

This charming boutique hotel offers even more comfortable accommodation right at the heart of the action.

I really loved staying here. The front staff was amazingly competent, kind, and comprehensive. They helped me get a cab, and the little breakfast each morning was just absolutely adorable. Kentrell was extremely friendly 😃

This is our 3rd visit to beautiful New Orleans and The St. James Hotel on Magazine St. Our first visit was a family vacation with 15 of us all going in different directions! Any help or suggestions needed were met in a timely, confident and courteous way. My 2nd. visit was with a good friend and again our stay at this beautiful hotel was perfect! The last visit was with my husband and again we were treated with kindness, competence and honesty. The St. James is a beautiful, historic, comfortable hotel but the people who work there made all of our stays outstanding. A special thank you to Donnie Pierson, Doneta, Vicki Powell and the many others who made our stay memorable. Read less
