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.

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.

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!

Awesome find in really hip part of NY

Loved this hotel!! Super convenient for SoHo, and inside the design is really cool and contemporary. Lobby is spectacular, warehouse loft feel, not at all corporatey, instead more like an ultrahip living room. Bedrooms are really unusual too in their design, in a v positive way. I had spectacular views East and South. One of my favorite hotels in NY and I have stayed at many.

Brilliant location super friendly staff

From Morgan, deservedly awarded best concierge in soho to Erik the doorman the staff could not have been friendlier and more helpful. The room was smaller than I expected but that was my fault as I converted the sqm wrong at booking. David Burke garden and food really recommended. We usually stay in the Gansevoort but as it was fully booked chose the James and we will definitely return!. Shopping in Soho is always a great experience and there are a few excellent restaurants very close to the hotel.

Impeccable Service

As a business woman traveling can be exhausting. The room is very serene and spa-like. I felt pampered from the time I arrived until I HAD to leave. They provide nice amenities like wine and cheese and cookies in the lobby that make the stay that much more inviting.
