#351 of 498 hotels in New York City
Completed in 1908, the American Seaman’s Friend Society Sailors’ Home and Institute was designed by William A. Boring, the architect renowned for Ellis Island’s immigrant station. Originally built as a hotel for sailors with cabin-like rooms, the land-marked hotel was lovingly restored on its centennial in 2008 as the Jane Hotel. The Jane Hotel has continued to house guests with more dash than cash ever since.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.

We went to the Jane on the 4th for some drinks. We were told to wait in line which was odd because there was no line and the place did not seem overly busy ( usually you can hear the music and the crowd from the st). We waited for about 10 minutes while the bouncer and his friend (possibly another bouncer) casually chatted. After about ten minutes they looked at us surprisingly and asked “can we help you,” as if they had just noticed us. When we said we would like to come in, they informed us that to get in tonight you had to be on a “reserve list” As patrons who frequent the bar and hotel regularly, we called management and asked if reservations were needed and he informed us none were needed and anyone could walk in. We explained to him what had happened and the manager then changed his story and said if there was no reservation, the bouncers could deny entry. The point being, our issue was not that entry was denied, it was that we were told to wait in line and after wasting our time, they condescendingly informed us we would not be able to go in. I can assure you, it was not due to dress code as we had just come from dinner at the Standard Hotel.

This is my fifth visit to the Jane. The location is great, the staff are friendly and the hotel is well managed. You could not find a hotel of equivalent value and charm in downtown London, Paris or Berlin. Hope to visit Manhattan and stay at the Jane (again) in 2020.

We stayed in a captains cabin in this delightful quirky hotel that is so full of character. It was very reasonably priced for NY being a large room complete with desk, chairs and ensuite bathroom along with a king size bed. It's location in West Village, beside Greenwich village and the Hudson River, is perfect for exploring NY and enjoying the local restaurants and cafes. The staff were friendly, helpful and courteous and the room clean and comfortable. We did get fit using the stairs as the one elevator was not fast.

This was my first time to NY and I chose The Jane because if it’s location, style and pricing. All were met with my stay. The hotel it self is a boutique style and considered a budget hotel with lots to offer. I chose the cabin style room for my 6 night solo travel stay. The room was just right, functional, thought out with the space and comfortable. Was a little hot at times, but was cooled down with the fan and window in the room. I was the 4th floor, quiet and away from the ballroom jams. The shared coed bathroom (2 sinks w/a large mirror, 2 showers and 2 toilets) was no issue and I never had to wait. Just a few awkward hellos at first with the other trackers, but very clean and well taken care of. Robe and slippers are provided as well towels. I do recommend bringing your own shower shoes though. The Rose is nice, but I found myself getting coffee and breakfast down the street. A lot around the property and neighborhood to see and it’s only a 10-15 minute walk to a subway station to get around. The ballroom is big and something to experience at least once when the party and music if pumping. Btw the staff there are great. Very friendly and helpful. I would definitely book again when staying in NYC. Best value that you could find in a place to stay while visiting the big city.

Such a great “pod hotel”. All rooms are like bunks of a ship and there’s an immaculately clean bathroom with showers and toilets on each floor. I’ve stayed here many times and it’s in such a great spot, overlooking the Hudson River. If you go to the rooftop bar, you can see the Statue of Liberty in the distance on a clear day. Such a great place to stay in the meatpacking district.
