Loved my stay, not for everyone.

The Saint James is a historic hotel 3 blocks east of Canal Street. It was quiet and lovely. The staff was kind and personal. From the gas lamps out front to the furniture and bedding in the room everything was comfortable, elegant, and exuded the warmth we were looking for in a French Quarter stay. I particularly appreciated how quiet everything was. My only real complaint was that there was no where to get a cup of fresh coffee in a real mug/cup withing blocks of the hotel. My husband did not appreciate the skylight in our room. There were no black out curtains available on the skylight and under the full moon our room was moderately illuminated all night. We were in room 305. If you do not like skylights ask at the lobby. The Saint James is not new, does not have all of the amenities of 4 and 5 star hotels, does not have a huge staff. None of these things bothered me at all. Some guests were irate. As long as you know what you are booking you should enjoy your experience. If consistency is your main goal there are numerous chain hotels in the district. We would definitely recommend the Saint James.

Good Location..

We travel to New Orleans twice a year and have become very familiar with the City. The location of the St.James is really nice, short walk to the French Quarter,we even walked to the WWII Museum. Our room was very small but that can be expected with older buildings. This was only a three day vacation the size of the room would be an issue for a longer stay. The staff, all but one, were very friendly and helpful. They have a nice idea using feather beds but really need to use sheets that will stay tucked in!!! We will go back to New Orleans but probably would not stay here again.

Friendly Service/GreatLocale

All of the staff was very professional, attentive and friendly without being overbearing. The hotel is just minutes (walking) from the Quarter but far enough away not to be in the crazy mix of the Quarter. Felt safe to walk around at night. Great base camp. (Satisfaction survey doesn't show which is best or worst. So I assumed last dot on the right was best,i.e., staff and room comfort were great!)

Friendly folks...nice location.

We were in town for our wedding anniversary during the French Quarter Festival. We found the St James to be perfectly located...we were within walking distance to all the activity. Considering the number of tourists in NOLA during that weekend, we felt the room was reasonably priced. Although our room was relatively small it was clean and comfortable.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

with a couple of blocks walk you are in the heart of the French Quarter.
