THE ST. JAMES HOTEL IS THE SOUTHS ONLY REMAINING
ANTEBELLUM RIVERFRONT HOTEL. PLANTATION OWNERS, UNION
SOLDIERS, AND THE NOTORIOUS, FRANK AND JESSE JAMES,
HAVE SLEPT HERE. PERCHED ON THE BANK OF THE ALABAMA

HISTORICAL AUTHENTICITY, COMMUNITY SPIRIT, AND GOOD OLD
SOUTHERN CHARM TOGETHER TO CREATE A TRUE TREASURE.
BUILT IN 1837, THE RENOVATION OF THIS GRAND HOTEL WAS A
6 MILLION DOLLAR PROJECT THAT BROUGHT TOGETHER THE
SMALL COMMUNITY OF SELMA, ALABAMA, IN A JOINT EFFORT TO
SAVE HISTORICAL AUTHENTICITY ALONG WITH A TOUCH OF
SOUTHERN CHARM. THE BEAUTIFULLY FURNISHED ANTEBELLUM
STRUCTURE HAS BEEN RECREATED AFTER MONTHS OF
PAINSTAKING RESEARCH TO RESTORE THE ST. JAMES TO ITS
ORIGINAL GLORY. VINTAGE LIGHTING, ORIGINAL FIREPLACE
MANTLES, TRANSOM WINDOWS, RICH WOOD FLOORING AND
DELICATE ANTIQUES ALL COME TOGETHER TO RECREATE THE ERA
OF PLANTATION OWNERS AND GRACIOUS OLD SOUTH LIVING.
WHETHER YOU ARE A HISTORY BUFF, A LOVER OF FINE
ANTIQUES, OR SIMPLY APPRECIATIVE OF THE FINER THINGS IN
LIFE, YOU WILL FIND A PLACE ESPECIALLY FOR YOU AT THE
ST. JAMES HOTEL.
