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

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

Super Zimmer (alle Eckzimmer), nicht günstig aber tolle Ausssicht, gut gestylt und nicht zu cool und very helpful and friendly staff! Die Lage ist ideal für Soho/Tribeca/Meatpacking District zu Fuss Next time a stay at The James for sure!

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

A very good New York hotel. Great location for Soho but also convenient if you are flying in and out of Newark. Light filled rooms. Great views. Walking distance to walking/running paths along the Hudson River.

Loved this place -- have stayed in many hotels in NY and the service and location were just great! Perfect for families -- either the suite or the corner king with an adjacent queen made for a nice family NY vacation.

This hotel has beautiful decor... However seemed unorganized and there seemed to be miscommunication. However, Kenny did a fantastic job making our stay at the hotel. He took care of our car, luggage and was very helpful. If the rest if the staff and stay were as good as him... This would have been a 5 star review!
