Excellent Stay!

This was our first trip to New Orleans and the St. James hotel was fantastic. The room was standard - nothing overwhelming nice but it had everything we needed: bed, bathroom, TV, good A/C. The location is fantastic. Within a short walking distance to the river front, 5 to 10 minutes from Bourbon street, 10 to 15 minutes from Jackson Square, and within 2 minutes of the St. Charles street car. It is close enough to be able to walk to most places, but far enough that noise was not a problem.

Great place to stay!

Very friendly and helpful desk staff. Room was great, decent size for a basic room, nice corner location. Clean hallways and all, ice machine etc. working and accessible. A few blocks of French Quarter, close to Convention Center. It's nice to not be in the middle of the FQ madness, especially late at night. Mother's is right around the corner!

Saint James Hotel

Staff was very helpful with restaurant and sightseeing suggestions, directions to hot spots, assisting with securing transportation and printing of travel documents. Great location, within walking distance from the Convention Center, at the edge of the French Quarters and 10 minutes walking distance from Bourbon Street! And for about $100/night.

Good Value Hotel

Well situated boutique hotel with pleasant staff. Relatively few amenities (coffee and Danish in lobby for breakfast) but room was clean, cleaned each day, TV and coffee maker in room. In between the Business district and the French Quarter. [...]

"Quite Reasonable for Downtown NOLA."

I really do not have any complaints. This was a train trip and the hotel was a $10 cab ride fron the AmTrak Station. I really think the facility is 4 stars but is quite old, and its age should be taken into account. It was reasonably priced and I would stay again. It is within a comfortab;e walking distance of the French Quarter.

Great, but not for kids.

Hotel is very nice with a convenient location without having to be right in the quarter. Don't go with kids. rooms are smallish and what they call a pool is more the size of a fountain. Great for couples and business. staff was very friendly and helpful.

Classic modesty

First off, I loved this hotel. It was modesty, and humble, yet you could tell that the place is historical and loved. With that said, It was perfect for a quick enjoyable stay. My issues were that some of the outlets were not working, the lighting in the room was on the dark side (I needed to work) and that the TV/channels were rather pitiful. Either way though, I would definitely stay there again.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Centrally located, if you're willing to walk for a bit, this hotel is great. Check out Central Grocery, Cafe du Monde, Green Goddess, and Felix's. You won't regret the beautiful walk and delicious food.

Old New Orleans

Room was lovely, right off the courtyard with french doors. 3 blocks out of the quarter but close to good food and musems. Beware of the valet service very slow.
