If you're looking for brash, tacky & touristy....then this is NOT the hotel for you! It is easy to see why The James has been used as for many filming locations - including the gritty series Power, & rom-com The Other Woman. In fact the first day we stepped out of the hotel, we walked straight into a film set, complete with vintage cars, handsome looking actors & a touch of lights, camera, action! Already I was in love with the district! When looking for hotels in 'The Big Apple', we knew we wanted to stay somewhere that was more intimate but still had the NY 'Wow' factor - & The James didn't disapppoint. Our room which was minimalist & exceptionally spacious, had great views of the financial district, trendy Tribeca & Soho & Chelsea. Each day we were greeted by the site of The Freedom Tower - which at night lit up & was a humble reminder of how amazing and vibrant NYC is. On our first day, we were looked after by several wonderful staff - who seemed very proud to work for the hotel. Nothing was too much trouble throughout our stay. One of the most lovely little touches was the complimentary cheese and biscuits along with red wine, served in the lobby early each evening. This was a welcomed treat, especially after a long day of walking around the city. It also enabled us to have a reason to casually chat with other hotel guests & because of this we met some amazing people. The James also takes their love of art very seriously. This apparent on entry, when you are met by the most unique stairwell wall, created with pieces of a keyboard. All of the original artwork throughout the hotel is stunning, and there is always something to look at. Add this to the amazing rooftop bar, along with the famous David Burke restaurant & you have a hotel that is 'Soho' hard to beat.

Overall I loved my stay. The room decor simple, bright, very relaxing. The view was excellent. The rooftop bar was very cool and had a perfect name (Jimmy at the James - I felt honored) I loved the location - far away from the nonsense of Midtown, but a quick subway ride (15 minutes) or nice long walk (2 1/2 miles) from the Theater District. Lots of excellent restaurants in the neighborhood. I loved it - I would surely stay there again. Jim C.

Friendly staff, clean rooms, really nice hotel. The rooms are small, but we really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. I loved the big windows and the bathroom is fun. You can see into it from the bedroom, but you can easily change that if you want privacy. The staff is really nice and we enjoyed the afternoon happy hour they provide. The breakfast scones are pretty amazing as well. :)

As of July 16, 2017 the hotel is still in the midst of re-construction and there are items in this beautiful hotel that need some attention....first, the hotel is beautiful and I look forward to staying there again. The current condition of the hotel is "under construction; besides the temporary entrance on 29th, there are a lot of items missing, like a lobby, a restaurant, a bar. The place is not done yet. Other than that , great location, great rooms, nice hotel and staff. We had a suite, that was beautifully appointed and brand new. Great bed comfort. But the bathroom door was incorrectly installed and would not close. The hotel management need to attend to little things like this to get an excellent rating.

At first glance the hotel is 5* NYC premier luxury but once the shock and awe wares off, a good 7 minutes, you can see what's going on. Just like every other hotel in NYC (not the Burroughs) it is extremely over priced and the service u get is poor, to put it politely. They really know how to "cattle" there clientele at this place so everyone's in a nice organized line throwing money down the owners throat!! If you want drunk party get wasted frat girl.... this is the spot! And I would even stay at the hotel again, but I was very upset w the pool staff repeatedly for numerous reasons
