“choose from 42 enchanting Victorian guest rooms”

Experience the charm of the historic St. James Hotel in Selma, Alabama. One of the last riverfront hotels still standing in the Southeast, the St. James welcomes guests with elegant arrangements such as solid oak furnishings, vintage lighting, luxurious fabrics and a charming courtyard that evoke an antebellum spirit of gracious hospitality. The hotel anchors the Water Avenue Historic District and offers spectacular views of the river and the historic Edmund Pettus Bridge made famous in the historic civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery in 1965. Choose from 42 enchanting Victorian guest rooms. Built in 1837, the St. James Hotel offers guests a blend of classic elegance and contemporary amenity. Each of our 42 guest rooms is unique. Though every renovation that keeps the St. James current with the highest standards of comfort and convenience, decorators diligently maintained the 19th century character of each guest room. The hotel offers guests a chance to relax and unwind with its sweeping vistas of the Alabama River or in its charming courtyard. Fitness facilities are available free to guests at the nearby Selma YMCA. The St. James Hotel's charming guest rooms feature period-antique decor, wireless Internet, cable TV, individual climate control, hair dryers, irons and ironing boards, valet service and twice-daily maid service.
