“Great location and excellent value for money!”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

We have just returned from a 5 day stay at Hotel St James and agree with most of the reviews already posted. The hotel does look a bit tired and could do with a make over but the friendly staff (especially Joey on reception) make up for the look of the hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable and as you are only sleeping in your room it ticks all the boxes. The free wi fi is a bonus.
The biggest attraction is the great location (between 6th and 7th Ave) on West 45th Street just a stones throw from Times Square and very close to most of the attractions. There is a lovely little deli directly next door so getting a good hot breakfast, coffee and anything else you need is on the doorstep. I would certainly come back to this hotel on our next visit to NYC

This is not a luxury hotel. Some of the common areas are a bit run down. The rooms are very good for its category though, and it's really great that there is wi-fi all over the hotel and not only in the lobby as some hotels do.
The staff was very helpfull and I found it a plus that they have lockers for storing your luggage after checking-out - although you have to pay for them, it's not that expensive and you can be totally sure that it will stay safe.
The location is excellent, right next to Times Square but in a quiet street.
Only bad thing is that they do not have breakfast included, but this is quite normal in the USA so no major hassle there.

Room Tip: Perhaps rooms on the back (as mine was) are quieter than those in the front.

We stayed at Hotel St James in mid November 2013. Great location and great price but the service from staff was brilliant and you can see how much the reception enjoy working here and they were so helpful. The room we stayed in was a Queen room, very spacious, clean. I would have no problem recommending this hotel to anyone and when we come back over in a few years time we'll probably stay here again. The hotel is an excellent choice for people coming to New York for the first time as it's just off Time Square. The shuttle to and from the airport(Newark) was excellent value as well. The WIFI coverage was also excellent. We had a room at the back of the hotel which was very quiet.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter

A couple blocks from Times Square, near Hell's Kitchen (more restaurants than you can imagine!), stones throw from theaters, a couple blocks from subway- the location is unbeatable. It's not fancy, but very clean, the beds are comfortable, BR in every room (be sure to check when you go to NYC) , flat screen cable TV. It appears there has been a lot of refurbishing since our last stay.. Two cafes next door for inexpensive breakfast & lunch, with very large selection of hot/cold food and drinks. (save $ for nice dinner :) For NYC, the price combined with this location is unbeatable. Service was nice- I lost a glove and the maid looked for it and CALLED ME BACK LATER- this- in NYC? We'll go back -

We are here right now. I love the location and price. If you are looking for thrills dont look here. Its a warm room in cold Manhattan. The beds we got are very comfortable with firm pillows.
A 1 minute walk you are in Times Square. A 10 minute walk you are at Macy's, Manhattan Mall, and Empire State building. We are staying 6 days and have had nothing but good. We even have have super high speed internet wich we are no use to having. Hot water is abundant.
We will definitely come back here if we come back to NY.

O.K., let's start out by saying, if you believe you need the cushiest room and staff falling over themselves to assist you, this hotel is not for you. This hotel is for those who; - Can appreciate that this is an OLD hotel. And with that comes some quirks, narrow stairways, small elevator, old hotel smell. - Do actually look for bargains while traveling. - Use a room to rest and change while exploring. The room had the basics. Small closet. Dresser. 2 night stands. 2 lamps. Table & 2 chairs. Comfortable bed. Mid sized bathroom with good sized tub and rain-flo shower head. Oh, and a blow dryer. Small radiator heater that is controlled by the front desk. It is a quaint older hotel that yes, may need updating, but offers a good value for being right at Times Square. Would stay again and recommend to others. And yes, staff were very polite and helpful, if asked. Oh, no restaurant or bar because there is a 24 hour deli/bodega right next door.

This hotel was very simple. We were on the 3rd floor. The elevators were very slow, most times we opted to take the stairs rather than wait for the elevator. There is a 24 hour shop next door, so the hotel does not have a coffee shop. The room did not have a clock and the blinds do not cover the whole window. The air conditioner was very loud. Our room had a large walk in closet. The shower had very good water pressure. However, this hotel was in an excellent location, very central to all attractions.

Room Tip: Bring ear plugs and eye covers and it won't matter. If you don't want to waste time waiting...
