Slick and cool, The James Hotel New York oozes all things urban -- loft-like rooms, big-city nightlife and designer labels everywhere. To top it off, the 5-star hotel has an enviable downtown address surrounded by the cafes and boutiques of SoHo. It is also just one block from the nearest Subway.
One of the few high-rise buildings in this part of town, the 18-storey James Hotel has 360-degree city views from its rooftop lounge, Jimmy, which is open year-round. In summer, this spot is particularly popular for its private rooftop pool (open seasonally). Downstairs, the Urban Garden features pieces from local artists, outdoor dining and a buzzing post-work drinking scene. Overlooking the pretty spot is the cosy James Club, which has daily complimentary drinks and snacks on offer.
Though dining options in this neighbourhood are plentiful, a visit to the on-site David Burke Kitchen (the celebrity chef runs the restaurant) is a must. Tuck into nibbles such as maple-bacon dates or smoked pastrami salmon sticks, accompanied by a specialty cocktail at the bar, before sampling any of a number of inventive entrées in the subterranean dining room.
The light-filled guestrooms are luxurious with glass enclosed slate-tiled bathrooms, plush organic bedding and rainfall showerheads. Enjoy free in-room Wi-Fi, triple distilled water (refreshed twice daily) and nightly turndown service.
