Overview

The St. James Hotel, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member, honors the legend of West Indian immigrant and merchant, Che, who died in 1851 near the hotel. The portal opened by voodoo priestesses to guide his spirit to the Caribbean is said to have helped Civil War soldiers enter death peacefully. The St. James Hotel, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member, harkens to its Caribbean roots with elegant West Indian decor, brick and stone work, ornate iron work and lush plantings. Every room at this boutique hotel is slightly different.

Rooms

All 86 rooms and suites are comfortably outfitted with down feather beds and the usual array of in-room perks such as safes, coffee makers and hair dryers. What is not usual is the decor and room layout.  Rooms vary in shape and design with Caribbean details such as painted designs of monkeys, parrots and palm trees.  Marble baths and a cozy feel remind visitors why they chose a small, privately owned hotel over a chain. A pool and fourth floor sun terrace add appeal.

Property features

New Orleans Magazine says Cuvee is among the best restaurants in town. The on-site restaurant boasts an impressive wine list and serves nouveau Creole and continental cuisine. A cavernous dining room is warmed by handiwork in wood, leather and iron. Lunch is served Monday to Friday, dinner Monday to Saturday. The hotel will help to arrange local tours.

Even though it was in the middle of a re-model, it was incredibly comfortable and the greatest staff. My hat is off to this hotel and I will stay there again most definitely

Go Somewhere Else!

Would not recommend Wed, Aug 19, 2015
The room was small. Air conditioner didn't work. It was 85+ degrees in our room. No ceiling fan. Front desk said that they would bring us a box fan for the inconvenience, which was never brought up. The windows didn't open at all. Then they had the nerve to call my room at 1am, telling us to keep it down, right after I got off the phone with them about the heat issue. The pool looked like nothing more than a filthy green swamp, where everyone went to go smoke. The location is decent, but after walking the main strip, we found PLENTY of nicer places for even less money. DO NOT GO HERE!!!!

Good, but park somewhere else

Would recommend Mon, Feb 9, 2015
Honestly, my experience here was good - it's close enough to the festivities of Mardi Gras, but away from some of the more crowded areas. Room was nice, even if I could hear every word from the hallway (it's NOLA - I don't expect complete peace and quiet). If you're driving your own car, though, I'd recommend parking yourself the valet takes 20-30 minutes to retrieve your car, and the actual valet rate may come in higher than they quote you if there's an event. It's not much money, but even a few bucks feels dirty when the staff has already told you a different number.

Excellent and Charming

Would recommend Tue, Dec 23, 2014
This is a great little hotel. clost to the Quarter, but away from the congestion and noise. the hotel has retained the Old New Oleans charm but been updated with beautiful style. Not the least of the charm is that they deliver a free continental breakfast right to your door each morning. And if you are around for more than one night you have the advantave of a microwave and fridge in your room. The only drawback might be the lack of a fitness room---I did not see one, though I did not look very hard!

Money saver

Parking (fee) right across the street at a very reasonable rate. easy to walk and use the trolly

Great New Orleans Stay

Would recommend Mon, Feb 17, 2014
Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and quiet. Hotel experience helped give us a very good overall experience while visiting New Orleans. We are already making plans to return.

Attractions

Antique/ art section of the French quarter is really fun to walk through especially at night. Tons of police on the street. Never felt unsafe.

I've found my New Orleans Homebase

Would recommend Fri, Feb 14, 2014
I travel quite a bit, and like smaller, boutique hotels. I found the St. James location to be perfect, just the other side of Canal from the French Quarter, in the CBD. From the moment I walked into the hotel lobby, I was impressed with the decor and the friendliness of the staff. My room, although small, was perfect, although I have to admit that the height of the windows threw me off - almost 5 feet from the ground, but still provided enough light. The amenities were comfortable, and the shower pressure and water temp were great. The hotel was quiet, and I never heard a bit of ambient noise from the other rooms. Christine and the other ladies at the front desk were always there to greet you with a smile and take care of my every need, from calling a cab to giving me walking directions and street car information to recommending a great restaurant for breakfast or dinner. I would not hesitate to recommend the St. James to family and friends, and plan to make this lovely hotel my "go to" when in New Orleans.

Dining

Ruby Slipper Restaurant - 1 1/2 blocks from the St. James - excellent food and waitstaff!
