Had a fabulous time

Possibly the number one thing about the James is the fabulous staff. They go out of their way to connect with you and make sure that your needs are met. I can't say enough good things about everyone I dealt with. I'm quite partial to modern/contemporary design and really liked the design features of the hotel. The room was spotless and quite comfortable.They provide eats in the lobby/lounge throughout the day. Coffee and pastry in the a.m. Fruit and water in the afternoon. Wine and cheese in the evening, and cookies late night! The location in Soho was perfect for me because there's a lot I like to do in Soho. And I found it easy to get other places in Manhattan. Cab's are usually fine, but there's a subway stop right nearby and when mid-town is gridlocked as it was one of the days I was there, the convenience of fast and hassle-free transport was very welcome. All in all, a great place to stay.

Hip and overpriced

watched them build this hotel the last few years and was looking forward to it. The Hampton across the street was the newest place in the SOHO area in dire need of quality hotels before this was built. the rooms are very, very trendy, but NYC small even if the bathroom had a heated floor (very nice). the restaurant is very good, the yuppies take over all the bars, which is fine if you like noise and notice. If they can get the rates they charge, good for them, but there are better places within five minutes to stay for a lot less.

Hip New Hotel

This is a hip new hotel in Soho with really great service and the friendliest people who really understand the hospitality business. They are working out a few kinks but are so responsive they course correct as need be. Some construction dust. Once they get their systems in place, they will be 5 star!

Great Service. Perfectly located.

The hotel has an amazing location in the heart of Soho/ Tribeca, perfect for walking around. The staff is extremely nice and helpful (probably the best of the hotel). David Burke's restaurants also a must. Very lively areas (terraces, lobby, etc) but not disturbing for guests.

Great stay in newly opened upscale hotel

Just spent two nights at The James Hotel in Soho. This is a perfect hotel in the city for business travelers and adults. The hotel just opened a few weeks ago, with certain areas still under construction (rooftop pool, lounge, etc.) Despite not being completely open, I had a great stay. The staff was amazing, decor was great, plus the room rate included wireless internet. In addition, they offer light snacks throughout the day in the lobby lounge, not something I see in NY. Hotel and room decor were great. My only complaint is the size of the room. But it is NY after all.
