Local New Orleans Attractions

Stay Near The Best Things To Do Like The New Orleans Aquarium & Audubon Zoo

The St. James Hotel is located in the heart of downtown New Orleans, near popular attractions like the New Orleans Superdome and New Orleans Aquarium. 

In addition to the tourist attractions that can be accessed on foot from our hotel on Magazine Street, there are many things to do that can be reached by car or streetcar, including the Audubon Zoo. We highly recommend checking out Riverwalk Marketplace and the New Orleans Museum of Art. The National World War II Museum is a short walk along with riverboat cruises and Canal Place shopping.
