Great staff very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this facility to all my friends and family. Within two blocks of Canal Street and close to the trolley system. Fresh coffee in the lobby area along with fresh water.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

I just can't say enough nice things about this place and the people who work there. We arrived early and were prepared to leave our luggage in storage for the day. However, Michelle informed us there was a room ready to go and..."how would we like to go ahead and check in?" Oh my gosh!! How great was that?? She...

Convenient to where we were visiting. Desk staff was very helpful. Old hotel but somewhat updated. On 2 occasions it took over 1/2 hour to have valet get our car. Continental breakfast served in room was nice touch.

Nothing bad to say about this hotel . We were greeted and helped by a very nice receptionist who made us feel welcome. The room was lovely, and the bed were so good! We loved that we got to have our breakfast in the room every day. Location is great, everything is close, but it's just outside the bustle, so...

The staff was great. The request for something special for my wife, on our four year anniversary was a little on the lame side. Internet connection was terrible. The wifi would come in and out, and only show one bar at the most.

Beautiful hotel. Breakfast served to your room. Very nice rooms. High ceilings. Rooms 420 and 421 share rooftop balconies. Air conditioner worked great and very quiet and dark room, so slept great. Also had a bathtub.

You will enjoy the area around the st james its on a nice clean street and just a short walk from the shopping on canal street or the hustle and bustle of the true nola experience is just across canal st. Bourbon st ,royal. And public transport is verry easy to get if walking is not a option..

The room could have used some updating (particularly the bathroom) but overall was great. We would definitely book at this hotel again and recommend to our friends. We enjoyed our croissants brought to our room for breakfast

It is a block of so off of Canal Street making the walk to the french quarter or along the river very easy to access. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we loved the small hotel feel and the wonderful courtyard.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood 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
