We recently stayed at The James In Soho and had a great experience. I arrived after my husband and was greeted by the friendly staff at the front desk. They remembered my husband, and let me know what a nice guy he is and how he upgraded our room to a corner suite as well. The corner suite was nice. We had views all around. It was not huge, but big for New York standards. The decor was comfortable and simple. The bathroom had a nice shower with heated floors. We were on the fifth floor and the noise from outside was not bad at all. We stayed at the Gansevoort in the meat packing district recently and had to wear ear plugs at night. Another bonus at the James is the location. The train station is right across the street. We were able to easily take the train to many places and avoid the street traffic. They also offer complimentary wine and cheese in the early evening. After walking around the city all day, it was nice to come back to the hotel for the free wine and cheese. It was not a big selection, a simple set up, but still appreciated. They also had a fun roof top bar that gets pretty crowded at night. My only complaint was that our pillows were really too soft. We requested firmer pillows but were told all four nights that they were all being used. Other than that, our stay was a positive experience and we would definitely stay here again!
