Didn't get the room we booked
Nice decor
We did not get the room we booked which was a King room. Instead we got a Queen. Also, the room was not ready when we arrived past 6:00 p.m. Check-in is supposed to be at 2:00. They told us we would be on the 17th floor, but that they were still cleaning it. My husband was very upset so they offered us the 3rd floor (also a Queen). He didn't want the 3rd floor so we waited. They did offer us a credit at the bar. The room was very small which was okay, but I was expecting more. The duvet cover was ripped on one side and there were stains on the other side. There was a burned out light bulb and the insulation in the attic above the safe was falling out and they had everything propped up with towels.

great location, very helpful & friendly staff
no bath in room. apart from that it was great!
This very family friendly hotel is some what of an oasis in the hectic SoHo/TriBeCa area. With a lovely roof top garden, perfect for entertaining my 7 month old and a fantastic restaurant as well as in room dining options, The James really was exceptional in terms of meeting our needs. The rooms are not big but we comfortably stayed for 5 nights with out baby who slept in a nice crib/cot provided by the hotel. They also gave us a baby bath and have diaper/nappy Genie bins for use. The family friendly nature did not come at a comprimise aesthetically, the design and interiors are chic and modern. Overall, a pleasure to stay at The James. 5 Stars.

Great location in SoHo and great views
Smart, trendy boutique hotel
overall a cool boutique hotel in soho though we did have a few problems with our stay: one of the lifts was broken so it took forever to get up and down to rooms. there was also a broken ac in the room below us that was causing lots of noise when we were trying to sleep. to be fair, the hotel remedied both very quickly.

Great location but small rooms
Soho area. Walking distance to art galleries, restaurants, cafe and shops. Trendy architecture and wonderful view to the city and Hudson river.
Overall fine. Rooms are very small for the price we paid The King size bed was more like Queen in reality. The Westin and other hotels offers much better room space and real king size beds. Guest service is Ok. No upgrades were uvailable for a just married couple like us. but oh well, they don't have to, right? We liked the architecture and design.
