          Well, we parked on the street. But, we have handicap plates so we were able to park right in the front of the hotel. They do not have a parking lot attached so you have to park on the street.

          My husband and I are considering making reservations at the St. James in late "hot" June for several days. I am EXTREMELY particular about my accommodations ---comfort, decor, amenities. Is the hotel equipped with Ac/, working A/C? Do the rooms smell or feel humid, damp or moldy? What are the absolute best rooms/suites with a view and the feel of luxury? After reading reviews, I'm becoming a bit antsy. PeniLane
