Rooms & Rates

The 19th century landmark building’s storied past includes previous lives as the home of a coffee import company, a Union hospital and now a 4-star hotel. The property’s subtle parrot and palm tree-themed décor pays homage to its historic ties to the West Indies coffee trade.

Renovated from top to bottom in 2012, the boutique hotel’s 86 rooms now boast new bedding, wood floors and televisions to match the newly refurbished lobby. For an older property, rooms at the St. James are large and five have private balconies. The Caribbean theme weaves throughout with nautical artwork, tropical color schemes and marble bathrooms. All accommodations are equipped with free Wi-Fi, flat screen televisions, coffee makers, fridges and microwaves.

Each morning, guests are served a complimentary, in-room breakfast. The property also has a small pool in the courtyard, a rooftop terrace and is attached to an upscale steakhouse (room service is available).

The hotel is two blocks from the French Quarter and a three-minute walk to the Canal and Magazine streetcar stop. Harrah’s Casino, the Superdome, New Orleans Arena and Ernest N. Morial Convention Center are within a 20-minute walk of the property.

The reason we booked the St. James was the price & the location. It was 5 mins. from the theater my granddaughter & her friend had tickets to. We drove in about noon & are room was ready so we got right in. Everyone was very nice & helpful. Would definitively book there again!

May need some updates in the hallway, musty smells and stained carpets.

A great boutique hotel conveniently located just a few blocks from Harrahs; lovely old-style courtyards inside divide the property into several buildings.

Ask for inner courtyard rooms away from traffic.

The woman at the front desk on the evening shift was fantastic. She suggested restaurants each night and they were fabulous. She never failed to greet us each time we can in or went out. She made us feel like she was there to assist us.
