My girlfriend and I spent Friday night at The James for a spontaneous weekend in New York. The hotel was fantastic. An excellent location -- very close to all the cool shopping, fun bars, etc. in the Soho neighborhood. (We had brunch at The Dutch and dinner at Estela, both in walking distance of the hotel). The service and amenities... More

The James is an exceptional hotel. The room is visually appealing and comfortable. The staff is professional and friendly. Visit the Jimmy a bar on top of the hotel for atmosphere and a great view of the city.

The rooms are small and quaint, and I love the fact that the floors are wood. It makes the room feel clean and fresh. I have stayed here 3 times and each time the staff has been great and the service top notch. The room service food is solid and the restaurants in the hotel are great. Recently I had... More

Great location, friendly service, fun bar scene at Jimmy's, easy walk to WTC area, TriBeCa, West Village and Chelsea. Lovely but typically smallish rooms that feel larger due to floor to ceiling windows. And quiet.

The location is good: close to good stores, bars, restaurants and two subway's lines. The Wifi and the staff is excellent. But, the pool parties makes the hotel a little bit noisy and the elevators slow.

I went to NYC to accompany my wife for her business trip. We had an amazing stay with staff like Jay giving us his recommendations on where to go in other borroughs. Kenny was uber accomodating with getting transportation to and from places and holding our luggage so we can enjoy New York till the moment we left. Look forward... More

Dear Jonathan A, Thanks for the rave review. It seems like you got the full James experience. But more importantly, thank you for acknowledging Kenny and Jay. They are both a huge asset to our team. Hopefully you can return when the Urban Garden and rooftop plunge pool are open to enjoy the warmer weather. Until your next visit. Sincerely,... More

Great location on Grand Street in SoHo. Cool look and feel. A tad too cool for comfort (with second floor lobby and elevator issues to accommodate rooftop bar.) Rooms are small. Clean. Could use touch-up. Mattress was soft. Very quiet considering we were on 4th floor facing 6th avenue. Very pricey.

My husband and I spent the weekend there for the US Open. Large rooms (for NY) and even better bathrooms! Big enough for two. Lovely in room bar and toiletries.

Dear Nicki R, Glad you enjoyed your visit to The James! Thanks for taking time to share feedback. Our restaurant is one of our greatest assets so we appreciate the sentiment. I’d have to agree with you on the views from our view from the rooftop. They’re unbeatable and being in Soho avoids the hustle and bustle of Midtown while... More

The James hotel is a recent addition to the SoHo landscape in NY. It is a quaint hotel, very conveniently located in the heart of SoHo, close to excellent dining, the Metro and smack in the middle of lower Manhattan. Everything about the hotel can be described as minimalistic, small but not too small. The rooms have a wonderful view... More
