St James Hotel New Orleans

New Orleans, Louisiana

The hotel

This charming boutique hotel has been recently refurbished to offer even more comfortable accommodation right at the heart of the action. A landmark building since the 19th century, accommodation has been carefully restored to offer a real respite from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding city. What’s more, each West Indies-inspired room comes with either a balcony or patio overlooking the city or courtyard, perfect for soaking up that unique New Orleans atmosphere. The on-site restaurant Chophouse serves an excellent steak, fabulous seafood all washed down with a glass of wine from the extensive wine list.

I enjoyed a lovely stay of 4 days during a business conference. The location was great—about half-way between the convention center and the French Quarter. It was within easy walking distance of everything I needed to see/do. The room was small, but charming. I was on the top floor, with a deep window seat. The hotel was amazingly quiet. I greatly enjoyed the breakfast of croissants and coffee each morning, brought to my room on a silver tray, no less!--all included in the price. The vents were a little dusty, and some parts of the room could use a little more care, but overall, I enjoyed my stay. The staff was attentive and friendly. I would come here again. Read less

We had a lovely stay at the St. James Hotel New Orleans. The staff was very helpful each time we had to adjust our reservations. On site, they gave us good advice when we asked for their help. Our room was comfortable, clean, and QUIET. The continental breakfast is simple but very good.

Excellent hotel close to tourist attractions and river front without being noisy. Very comfortable room with high grade facilities. Very friendly staff who were most helpful. Continental breakfast served in the room at a time of your choice. Comfortable lounge.

Close to bourbon street but not too close, good walking distance. Friendly staff. Bathroom needed some care and more pressure in shower. We never did get the card to fill out for breakfast delivery after initial day(which we didn't receive bc of flooding which is understandable)

Good choice for a visit to New Orleans - friendly staff, free breakfast delivered to room, convenient location, reasonable price. There is some damage from rain at the moment in the lobby, but it did not effect our stay.
