Also great location for soho and tribeca and away from the in your face commercialism of mid town manhatten. Does mean its a bit of way if thats what you want (we...

Reviewed 19 April 2014

The James is clean, stylish and fairly priced. It is very similar to the Standard East Village in mood (hip) and bedroom size (small!). The rooftop bar is quite exceptional, and well worth checking out. The dining room, literally set below street level, was a somber and unsatisfying place to start the day with breakfast. Not a place I wanted...

The James is small and pleasant. The room has a glass wall separating the bed and the shower, very sexy! Great outdoor space for a drink and a snack, the Treehouse, I believe.

A very good New York hotel. Great location for Soho but also convenient if you are flying in and out of Newark. Light filled rooms. Great views. Walking distance to walking/running paths along the Hudson River.

Staying in SoHo

Neighbourhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of Houston) is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore by foot. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district –majestic cast-iron architecture everywhere you look. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city. The pretty streets of Nolita (North of Little Italy) offer a more sedate vibe, with plenty of tiny boutiques and hip restaurants to seek out.
