This is a swanky pet-friendly hotel in the popular SoHo neighborhood
Noise from the rooftop bar can be heard in some guest rooms
Sitting in the trendy SoHo neighborhood, The James specializes in providing guests with sophisticated and modern suites alongside excellent service. Each of The James' rooms features a flat-screen TV, complimentary Wi-Fi access, wood flooring and a natural color palette to create a warm and inviting place to bed down. Recent guests also give kudos to The James' luxurious (and eco-friendly) bath products, but note the rooms are small, even by New York standards. The rooftop bar, JIMMY, is equally alluring with its cozy fireplaces, zesty cocktails and 360-degree views of the Manhattan skyline. The Gitano Jungle Room NYC receives high praise from guests for its inventive fare inspired by the Yucutan Peninsula.

Critic Reviews

The New York Times


If you picture life as a magazine spread — where the architecture is modern, the art cutting-edge and everything else organic or free-range — then the James New York may fit you to a T.


Its bright, minimalist rooms are smaller than those at some of its luxury competitors (including the nearby Trump SoHo), but they're full of enough thoughtful details to make up for it.



Rising above the edge of SoHo, this boutique hotel offers skyline views in a typically low-rise neighborhood. The rooftop pool and cocktail bar are popular neighborhood destinations, and a notable range of shopping and dining options are all located within walking distance.
