“Great hotel, great location....highly recommend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for five nights with my wife, great hotel and would have scored it 5 out of 5 but was slightly let down by the hotel bar staff. The door and reception staff were fantastic, very helpful, friendly and professional, the bar staff barley noticed you were there and made no effort at all, pity. The hotel is worth staying at, great location (3 blocks from subway) and near lots of great independent bars and restaurants. The rooms are also great....no complaints what so ever, will be recommending to family and friends and would stay here again.

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple

I spent a lot of time researching hotels in NYC before I booked the Jade. I wanted somewhere cool and comfortable that was close to downtown bars and restaurants without being too far from midtown for one or two touristy things. The Jade ticked all of our boxes and we were really happy with our choice. It's decorated beautifully and unlike some other boutique hotels is also quiet, comfortable and friendly. Yes, the room wasn't big but we went for the smallest category and it was bigger than others in Manhattan. Staff were very helpful and we couldn't have asked for more.

My family stayed at the Jade Hotel from Dec. 26-31, 2013. Although it's a new building, it feels like it has long belonged to the neighborhood. The decor/design elements are quite impressive in the lobby, bar, restaurant, and rooms. You can tell they paid a lot of attention to details.

Our room had two beds, and was comfortable but small (which you would expect in NYC). We had a great view of the Freedom Tower from our room on the 17th floor. We were most surprised at how quiet it was in our room, which was a first for us in the city. (We suspect that the quiet room was a benefit of modern construction and insulation.)

The location of the hotel is the best. We were just a short walk from three subway stations (14th St, Union Square, and 4th St), where we could catch trains on 5 different lines. Very convenient.

Great hotel with a lovely location in GW! Small rooms, but the staff was nice and the design was warm and nice :) I`ll definitively stay here next time I`m going to NY again. Easy access to all of manhattan with the subway-station next door, and a nice neighbourhood with lots of restaurants.

Great service, beautifully decorated and good location. I expect a smaller room whenever I visit New York City, but this room was ridiculously small. The closet and storage space is virtually nonexistent, yet there is a lot of opportunity to improve. They need to get a designer in that knows how to utilize space.
I would stay again, but only for a couple of nights. Too small for a longer stay.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a suite to get a larger room

Fabulous intimate hotel that is in a great location. The staff are warm and friendly and really make you feel welcome. The rooms are quaint and the bed very comfortable. I was there for 11 nights and never tired of it. My adult daughter joined me for a week and loved it too. The restaurant served one of the best burgers that my New Yorker friends had ever eaten. They are going back! Also for the great cocktails in the lounge! Amazing stay can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the front of hotel are slightly longer which gives you more space for couples. I moved...
