Loved the property. Just in need of some maintenance and care.

Location is great, close to everything we wanted to do.....parking !WOW! Very expensive if you choose to be close to the hotel......the management at this place was ! HORRIBLE! ×10...the room had not been serviced properly....we did not complain.......not until we discovered that the sheets were filthy. Management gave us NO options the 1st night.....WE had to strip the beds and sleep wrapped up in a blanket that we had to ask for (NO blankets are provided in the room) Day 2 (morning) We informed the management again about the need for service (clean sheets) The reply...AND I QUOTE...No, we cannot do that, it is ILLEGAL for us to do that until after 3 DAYS....WHAT!! Are you joking....Nope....After a lightly heated debate, we finally were handed clean sheets......and told that we would have to make the beds ourselves......un-freaking believable. I am sorry to say that none of the above was embellished because were angry, this is exactly how it occurred.... For NOLA, thank you !! The city, the sites, the FOOD met and exceeded our expectations....the FOOD OMG. WONDERFUL. Do bourbon st. For an hour or so.......and then go out and discover everything else. We will be back to visit again

We always stay there, it's terrific! And it's not too expensive!

Didn’t like that parking was up the street and about a 7 min walk to go back to the hotel after parking. Room had backwood guts on the floor and in the dresser otherwise it was an okay room.

It was an ok experience. No complaints.only stayed one night.

This hotel location was so ideal to the NOLA experience. It was short walking distance to shops, restaurants and entertainment. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. I will most definitely stay again! Thanks St. James you made it worth it 😊

Room very clean and comfortable. Employees were extremely friendly and helpful. Will stay agaIn!!

The hotel was decent . Close to everything. The room key wouldn't work right away, the tv wouldn't turn on, and it looked like it hadn't been swept. Once looking past it it was decent and fine. Pool area was shut down. The staff took along time to process new room keys, long to check in.

The location was perfect to get to all the surrounding attractions. Staff was exceptional. the bagel and tea in the morning hit the spot! Bathroom held in moisture found strands of hair that was not mine in random places. Overall it was bad but it wasn't great either.

Location was great Thin walls, could hear the neighbors Room on the smaller side but tall ceilings gave a comfortable feel

The smell of mold was unbelievable. The lobby looked nice but when you get to your room all you can smell is mold and there was dirt and paint splatter all over the floor and the bathtub was disgusting.

Location is great , close to shopping centers and historical sites

Loved the location! Close to bourbon st, French market and Frenchmen st. The room's a/c wasn't cooling as well as it should have, I could never bring the room's temp below 75°F.

The lobby is gorgeous. The location was perfect for our needs & it seemed safe. My observations are related to the building: The ICE machines are poorly located in the center of the hallway and incredibley noisy The walls of the room seemed thin as you could clearly hear conversations in the next room and hallway. The staff members are pleasant, professional and helpful
