The stay was very nice and yes we would stay again, the staff very friendly and informative..... FYI the picture of the pool is very deceiving!! Don't bring your bathing suit...A better variety of breakfast danish would have been pleasing!

Cozy boutique hotel near city central with nice amenities. Valet parking was efficient and prompt. Check in was friendly and efficient. Room was spacious, clean, and and efficiently appointed. I would stay here again on my next trip to the Cresant City.

Let me begin by saying the location of this hotel is perfect, within walking distance of Jackson Square and Bourbon Street and everything in between. If Bourbon Street isn't your thing a longer walk to Frenchman Street is very doable and in my opinion is worth a visit, it's not as loud as Bourbon and has lovely little markets with...

Great room and everyone was very friendly. However, the room served brought breakfast 3 hours early showing how much they don't care. Showers were perfect.... if you'rfe 5'2", the shower height will be perfect and work was cheaply and quickly done.

Workers very easy to deal with. Everything was great other than how clean the floors where and bathroom had hair on the floor and tub walls and door. A/c would only get room down to 72 on a good day. Close to everything was a plus. Could walk to everything other than the Zoo

One drawback was breakfast because only croissant and beverage is offered. But great location, friendly staff, and comfy rooms. Fairly quiet area, I didn't notice much street traffic noise. And they store luggage in case your flight is later in the day.

Nice location old charm, clean with a small breakfast. Staff courteous, helpful, cheerful. Superb. Just thought the room ( during March ) a bet pricey, but Overall a very enjoyable stay. Nice breakfast area, Maybe guests should be given a short history of the hotel verbally .

Hotel is located perfect for downtown. The staff is fantastic. They went above and beyond to assist us. Internet is ok at best. Really liked having croissants delivered every morning. Will definitely stay here again.

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.
