One of my best experiences at a New York Hotel. Definitely the friendliest staff I have ever encountered in New York. In fact, one of the best staff experiences I've ever had at any hotel I've stayed at around the world.

Had a really great stay here. We thought the room was very comfortable, quiet (we were on an upper floor), staff very friendly, and facilities generally very good. Also great location for soho and tribeca and away from the in your face commercialism of mid town manhatten. Does mean its a bit of way if thats what you want (we... More

We just spent 4 nights at the James. Overall a very good experience. Modern/slick design corner studio that was also very functional. Special mention to the floor heated bathroom and the large shower. The jimmy roof top bar on the 17th floor with amazing views on lower Manatthan and whose access is granted to guests of the hotel is a... More

The James is clean, stylish and fairly priced. It is very similar to the Standard East Village in mood (hip) and bedroom size (small!). The rooftop bar is quite exceptional, and well worth checking out. The dining room, literally set below street level, was a somber and unsatisfying place to start the day with breakfast. Not a place I wanted... More

I wish I could stay here every time I come to New York. So far, this is my favorite hotel in this city and I've stayed over the years in quite a few. The bed and pillows were so comfortable, I wish I could order them. The stylish staff was great and extremely accommodating. Your rooftop bar was a perfect... More

Dear MrsArielb, Thanks for the rave review. Our team members strive to go above and beyond so we appreciate you acknowledging all their hard work. We’ve enjoyed being under the radar and I think being situated in a pocket between Soho & Tribeca, in addition to our unobtrusive yet genuine approach to service will keep us as a neighborhood gem....

I stayed in those hotel for a weekend. The location cannot be beat. In the heart of SOHO, you are surrounded by the best of everything. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a lovely gentleman at ground level - he escorted us to the lobby level, where an equally friendly woman checked us in. The Room - we had a... More

The James is small and pleasant. The room has a glass wall separating the bed and the shower, very sexy! Great outdoor space for a drink and a snack, the Treehouse, I believe. We didn't try the restaurant but enjoyed a late night drink at the rooftop bar with an outdoor lounge and pool. The doorman Keany was sharp and... More
