Had an amazing one night stay at the James SoHo - Was doing business in the area and wanted a, convenient, clean and comfortable place to spend the night. I found all that and more at the James. Was greeted on the ground floor by the bell man and took the elevator up to the lobby area. Was informed I had been randomly upgraded for my one-night stay to the incredible penthouse suite (see photos). The room was beautifully decorated and clean, modern four-room suite with awesome sweeping views of lower Manhattan. Many cool features including soaking tub, rain shower (with great water pressure), automatic lighting modes and curtains. In addition to the incredible room, enjoyed a drink at the hip rooftop bar with pool and deck. Excellent service experience. I have no idea if "standard" rooms come close to the standards and comfort of my suite experience, but definitely will return on business and/or personal visits.

I booked the penthouse for a special occasion and I was profoundly disappointed by the value proposition. Yes, the view was breathtaking and it was a well-decorated room in terms of the interior design but that is the only positive element that I experienced in my stay. My biggest complaint about the penthouse is that it had so many technical problems. The main toilet room near the showers had a door that would not close and the lights did not even work. In addition, the speaker system also did not work, and when I asked the hotel staff for help they just simply said "it did not work" and made no attempt to alleviate the issue or suggest any alternative solutions. In addition, the space was not that clean -- the sofa was dusty and the "leather" chair was full of wrinkles and was almost tearing at the seams. The floor was also not particularly clean either. The complimentary wine was a nice touch, but that is expected given that it is around ~$1,500 per night. I am profoundly disappointed to have spent such a large amount for a special occasion that was largely ruined by technical failures and poor condition of the space -- not to mention the other inherent problems of the hotel (such as slow elevators and loudness of the rooftop bar) that I have not even explored in this review. I guess the final straw was when I expressed these issues at check-out, the receptionist just simply acknowledged the problem nonchalantly and said that she would get it "checked-out" with no offer for any remedy whatsoever. I would have expected a far comprehensive customer service given the claim that the hotel is "up-scale" and commanded such a large premium accordingly. I would not say don't stay at the hotel, but I would definitely say avoid the penthouse at all costs (you can get the view at the bar) and be aware of some insufficiencies in the customer service department.

An amazing 8 night stay at The James. Cannot really fault it! Both the room and view was great, and I loved the roof top pool! Gym pretty well fitted out too. Special thanks to Brian and Rebecca on the front desk who helped me several times during my trip and made the stay even more special. The location as well is perfect, great connections on the subway but also well positioned to explore the downtown area. Will definitely be back!

The James New York - Soho provides spectacular service. The Front Desk Agents, Yu-On, and Maurice, deserve a promotion, and a raise ASAP. They treat guests like family, going above and beyond. They really set the tone, and set the bar for a Gusto Experience. Complimentary water, apples, newspapers, and magazines are available in the lobby area. During wine hour between 6pm - 7pm, you will enjoy delicious wine, cheese, and, crackers. Afterwards, cookies are served. The lobby has a nice birds eye view of Soho. You will enjoy the fun rooftop, Jimmy’s. The DJ’s play great music, the bartenders are attentive, the rooftop pool looks awesome, and the views are spectacular. The rooms and beds are comfy and cozy. You can then enjoy a yummy dinner downstairs at one of David Burke’s renowned restaurants. This hotel has it all. It’s fun, chic, and convenient to all things Soho. A special thanks and shoutout to Yu-On! You Rock! I see you doing big things in the hotel industry, in the near future. I’m looking forward to my next fun stay at The James Hotel Soho.

I've reviewed a ton of hotels and I would not stay here again. Where do I start: 1. It's a party hotel. Not that there's anything wrong with that but if you like 250 millennial's partying day and night on the rooftop bar (which is nice BTW) this is place for you. 2. The crazy influx of partiers makes the elevators take forever. The hotel is oddly laid out so that the lobby is up a level which means you take 2 elevators to your room or stairs. Either is just a bad design. 3. Rooms are small and have an odd wax on them. So bad that I was falling everything, so no socks or trouble. They moved me to another room, a little better not much. 4. Gym and internet are ok, not great. 5. Location is good - next to canal station which takes you up town quick. Also, always great to be in SOHO and close to Tribeca. 6. Air conditioning - not good at all. I'm in a corner room and it becomes a furnace.
