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.

The Jane Hotel is a delightful historic hotel in West Greenwich Village. Stepping into the foyer was like stepping back in time to the early 1900s. The hotel room was small but lovely. I loved the woodwork in the room, and the feeling of being in a cabin on an old ship. The bathrooms were nice. The hotel and room were clean. The roof top bar has an amazing view of the river and the city lights. A nice extra touch was that some of the reception and housekeeping staff wore uniforms of early 1900s hotel staff. The hotel was very convenient to the Metro and buses. It was close to an amazing selection of restaurants. The riverside park and walk across the street were lovely. It was great value for the price. I stayed here for three nights in September. As a woman traveling alone, I felt very safe. I would stay here again.

Your ringing endorsement is matched only by staff shrieks of delight. We kindly ask that everyone tone it down, as Jane tries to keep an air of decorum, regardless of the joy. A kick of the heels under one's skirt is permitted in a dainty fashion, as most will not notice the slight leap for joy under the frock. We so very much look forward to seeing you again!

Because of what their website declared, we happily stayed at The Jane Hotel the weekend of September 25th, 2021. It seemed funky, fun, very affordable, great location, had a rooftop bar/lounge over looking the river and a restaurant with great reviews which we thought would be convenient for pre-theater apps and cocktails. Yes, the rooms with bunk beds are small but we didn't plan on spending much time in there. They were very clean as was the community bathrooms and entire hotel. However, upon arrival we were told the rooftop lounge was only available & rented for special events and having nothing to do with Covid, the restaurant had also been closed. You could order room service from a neighboring restaurant but wait time was one hour. The Ballroom which was presented on their website as available for special functions has now be turned into a very popular and loud nightclub open from 10pm to 4am. The lines to get in were more than a block long and about 6 people deep of very young beautiful people. Granted, the restaurant was closed but they didn't even offer morning coffee. If you asked at the front desk you could get a bottle of room temperature tap water (which is better than nothing and we discovered from another hotel guest we met on the elevator) but it would have been nice if they threw in a couple paper cups or glasses. I mean, come on!! If the restaurant and rooftop bar were open, we'd be happy to stay there again in a heartbeat. But its hard what the website promises when you can't even get a glass of water for your room.

It's been rough for everyone since Covid reared its ugly head, hasn't it? Glad to see you made it safe and sound! Unfortunately, like so much of the country, we are still working on our recovery. The building and all it's vendors were closed with the initial hits Covid took on NYC, and we've only been (partially) reopen for a couple months. We had hoped to be fully open by now, and certainly we are working feverishly to get there as quickly as possible. We are as frustrated as you that things haven't been going as quickly as hoped. As stated on the Jane website, the Rooftop Bar and Ballroom are seasonal, and it is already fall. Even though the restaurant hasn't reopened, we are serving award-winning burgers through the Gotham Burger Social Club in the parklett out-front, Thursdays through Sundays, 5pm to 10pm. Thank you so, so very much for your patience, patronage and understanding as we get back on our feet. We look forward to seeing you again! Cheers!

I am a covid-displaced New Yorker, so the idiosyncrasies and difficulties of nyc do not cloud my judgement; I come in understanding New York is dirty, loud, and full of people (including myself) who are such concentrated versions of themselves, they'd be considered freaks anywhere else. I am currently living outside of the city, but still have occasional business to attend to as I attempt to revive my business, a covid casualty. on Thursday night, I booked a room at the Jane to cap off one extremely exhausting day and in preparation for a second which promised to be the same. when we arrived, the desk clerk told us occupancy was low, so he upgraded us from a bunk room to a twin room. when we arrived at the room, the lights didn't work, so we called down to ask what we were doing wrong. a gentleman was up in seconds to assist, but the lights wouldn't work for him either. unprompted, they upgraded us again, this time to a captain's room with bathroom. a quick aside here: across the hall from the twin room, we noticed a man sitting in his room with door wide open. not a big deal, until you get to the end of the story. we spent the evening out and fell asleep around 11 as we needed to work quite early. at 2am, I was literally bounced out of bed by a persistent booming sound that wasn't just loud, it was vibrating the whole room. I spent many years in Los Angeles, where guys jack up the bass on car stereo systems so it literally vibrates buildings when they drive by. assuming someone had done the same, I called down to the front desk to see if maybe they could kindly ask the driver to move his car elsewhere. instead, I was told that was the lobby club, but not to worry, it shuts down at 3am. and, he added, if I wanted, I could come down to the lobby and he'd give me a different room. at 3am, mascara smeared across my face, I arrived at the front desk to find a maskless clerk waving a new key at me. "you know, we gave you a free bathroom," he told me as if wanting to sleep in a hotel room was a new concept to him. as we headed to the new room, I noticed the above mentioned guest, door still wide open, coughing like he was determined to get that lung out of his chest immediately. we hurried into our room, shut the door and tried to fall back asleep. that happened around 5am. I used the time to go to the Jane website, find the contact info and write a note about my experience to the manager. at 8 am, we checked out. I asked the woman behind the desk what was up with the blasting bass and she told me they normally tell people about it before they put them in that room. a clerk behind her chimed it, "but you got a bathroom you didn't pay for," I mentioned I'd written a note to the manager, left my email and requested they get back to me. now, let's consider things for a moment. covid decimated the hospitality biz, hotels included. the hotel is far from full because the initial clerk told me that and I'd been assigned four different rooms in my 20 hours as a guest. why, in a nearly empty hotel would you put anyone right above the club in a room you know is noisy when you have other similar rooms available? further, why would you tell a guest complaining about having to move rooms at 3am that they were given a free bathroom as if that makes up for having to get dressed and drag bags to the lobby in the middle of the night? if business is bad, wouldn't you do everything in your power to make the few guests staying happy? and if that is too much for you, couldn't you just apologize for your mistake instead of trying to make the guest feel bad about an upgrade they didn't ask for? 24 hours later, crickets. I wrote a longer, more detailed note and messaged it via Facebook, but no response to that either. one more thing: before it was the Jane, the property was a single room occupancy building. New York law prohibits developers from evicting the existing tenants when they convert, so often these new hotels have permanent residents. the gentleman with the cough and open door was one of them. normally, not such a big deal, but during covid, perhaps a concern. back to the review. despite the cute rooms, and they are cute, the great location, the Jane failed at every single thing I need from a hotel: well-trained staff, rooms that function properly, and most important, providing a safe place to get some rest after a long hard day at work. unless you are planning on joining the party In the club, I'd stay clear.

I really struggled with this review. I really like to give five stars when I can, but this clearly wasn’t five stars. I also try to take into account how a place makes me feel (I’ve given three star hotels five stars based on ambiance and service and given five star hotels less for the same reason). This is also for the hotel, NOT the ballroom, which I’ll review separately, but with similar results. I’m glad I stayed here. It’s historic and quirky and full of neat architecture. It’s where the Titanic survivors stayed after returning. It’s often stated to be part of the Wes Anderson aesthetic. You can get single rooms and bunk rooms that share bathrooms with the floor. You can also get the captain’s quarters, with a private bath, which I did. The room was neat and bathroom classic black and white tile (I wish I could have had a bathtub, but luck for the draw). I also wish I had gotten lucky enough to have a room with a terrace, but again, not lucky enough. The clerk told me he would put me in a room away from the ballroom so I wouldn’t be exposed to the noise. He said, “it will get very loud.” This ballroom is not for hotel guests only. It’s set up like a club, with door people and everything. Supposedly if you show your key, they let you in automatically. There was a lot of highway noise from my room (it’s right on a main artery of the city), but I find that preferable to club music all night. The bed was quite stiff and basic, but what do you expect? But maybe a nicer mattress wouldn’t hurt the historical ambiance? Room has a neat, yet sometimes inconvenient feature where there is a rod attached to your electronic key fab, which has to be inserted into a slot to make any electronics in your room work (there are on and off switches, but if you don’t insert the rod, NOTHING works). Doesn’t bother particularly and probably saves energy, but might bother some who plan to be out all day during the summer, and want the room to stay cool. Electronics are outdated, but I don’t care about that at all. A couple of the staff were nice. Some were downright cold and almost seemed like they judged me because I checked in wearing sweats and a tee shirt after a long week working in a hospital? And that’s not my overall experience when staying in Harlem or Queens. The neighborhood has some historic spots, like the Whitehorse Tavern (James Baldwin and Jack Kerouac used to hang there) and the Stonewall Inn (start of LGBTQ fight for rights), but, at least on the Friday night I strolled through, it’s gentrified, full of upscale stores, and young, white gen Z folks. None of the grit I love about NYC. I actually passed a group laughing about how only millennials use cabs? Really? The ballroom is neat, but pretty much just used as a club. It isn’t open during the day to relax or take photos. Literally locked. There are really no common spaces for guests. In fact, one of my biggest frustrations is how this establishment seems to function primarily as a night spot that just so happens to have hotel guests in the way. I did get a couple of mediocre drinks at the ballroom early in the night. Even got a premium margarita with clase azul tequila (they didn’t have salt). The best margarita of my life was made with this tequila, and the tequila itself is premium priced. But somehow even that was carelessly made and not like the amazing rendition I experienced at Case Enrique in LIC. Bartenders were attentive enough, but were mediocre overall. By the time 10 PM rolled around, the younger crowd and the people more interested in the club aspect started to pour in. Quickly left to go out into the neighborhood and try our luck at White Horse Tavern (not sure Jimmy Baldwin or Jack Kerouac would still hang out there) and The Stonewall Inn. Again, glad I stayed here. Neat to see. But it’s just not what I’m looking for from the NYC I know.

How cool is it that you are a New Yorker checking out NYC history? So very few people explore their own backyard, so hats off to you! We were closed for a long time, so much longer than we had imagined. Some of us have been letting our nervousness of being fresh to the job, it shows more than we’d like. As we get back into the swing of things, I promise all the lovely personalities will warm back up and our amenities will also expand back and recapture our pre-covid glory. I actually remember you specifically; I checked you out! I'm going to be out of the office for a little while, but if you want to reach out, I'd love to chat and see about a future stay for you. You are so clearly very discerning and adventurous. One thing about the Jane- we are a small hotel but we try do try to get to know our guests personally better than a bigger hotel might be able to. As you stay with us, we get to know you better and it would be our pleasure to show you how. We can’t wait to see you again!

Food is amazing and delivery was fast and cute to. Joke. Anyway the portion of food is perfect, not little but just enough to satisfy your hunger also first time that I was able to eat the whole meal usually at the very end I loose my appetite or interest on my food because of the taste but your food is so tasty I don't mind seconds. Lol

You tried our new Gotham Burger Social Club at the Jane, outside just in front of our steps? So cool! It's just opened, you trend setter, you! Come back and eat some more- it's open Thursdays through Sundays from 5pm to 10pm AND you can grab drinks made in by our famed Jane Ballroom bartenders. We look forward to dining with you again soon!
