Beautiful Room

It was better than I imagined. The paintings, the furniture(loved it), the COURTYARD. My sister and I are from New Orleans and neither one of were familiar with St. James Hotel, but I highly recommend this hotel. It is 1 block from Canal Street, about a block from Harrah's. It is in a convenient location because you are close enough to everything but far enough that you can walk out of the chaos that is sometimes Canal Street.

Old building

The hotel seems to be very old, worn carpets, smell to humidity. There is no fitness center. The amenities in general are poor or even missing.

Birthday

Thought hotel was dirty and needed a face lift. Dimly lit. My family gives it a higher rating than I. I wouln't go back for the price. My daughter would. Overall a fair place to stay. The plus is that it's right in the Freanch Quarters. So if you are young and came soley to party it's fine.

Not handicapped accessible & Dirty

For a hotel that claims handicap access it is very disturbing. It's on a one way street so my wheelchair ramp went out to the street. The front door. Isn't automated nor are the doors leading to 217 the so called accessible room. The shower had no bench. The shower nozzle couldn't hang up so it dropped soakin the floor. It was a very dirty dingy carpet through out the hallways and room. No handicapped accessible parking. Wheelchair had issues getting through doors even with attendant. If you want a hotel that gives you peace of mind and independence with handicapped accessibility this is not it

Weekend getaway

Overall I think that the quality of the hotel was very average. The two big downers for me related to the hotel were the parking situation where you had to either pay $35 a day to park with the hotel or try to find the difficult task of finding parking the street and the lack of a pool at the hotel. The location was good enough to make it to the french quater and casino in about 5 mins of walking and along with the pricing of the hotel it made up for the lack of amenities of the hotel. This hotel will do if you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel within walking distance of all the main attractions but don't expect to be impressed with the hotel.

Overnight get away

About 3 blocks (a little further than I thought) from French quarter. Great, clean room and very dark in the morning with drapes closed (got to sleep in a bit). Entire experience and value was worth it. Hate that valet is over $30 but car was well taken care of. Will definitely go back! Great experience!

You pay for what you didn't get

The first room the AC didn't work. They moved us to another one, AC worked excellently, but had no window. That was good for us we were able to sleep in. Park around the block, it is much cheaper than paying almost $40 a night. Staff amazing!

On Decatur st. There is a 4 star Restaurant, Star Steak and Lobster. Excellent food for breakfast lunch and dinner. Price was even better.

Outdated

The hotel offers a beautiful entry and presents well from outside, but once you reach your room it's a jump back in time. And not in the best way. The drapes and carpet are dark and heavy, the AC felt like it had not been on before we walked in the room and once on, felt like a swamp cooler. Once settled, it's cozy but needs a serious update.

Had to pay $25.00 a night for parking, swimming pool was the size of an oversized hot tub, it was between large buildings that did not allow very much sun in. The bathrooms had no counter space.

Not terrible but

Not the best...I give it 2 stars because... The maintenance of the room and most public areas was lacking. There were a few repairs that should be done just to make it ok...Most of the staff were friendly. Parking was ok, they don't have a designated lot so it's a shot in the dark.
