Why Stay At The James New York
Be one of the first travelers to stay at The James Hotel, New York, a 114-room property housed in a modern steel-and-glass building in Lower Manhattan's chic SoHo neighborhood.
Just two months after the hotel's September 2010 opening, The James in New York City is already a welcome addition to downtown Manhattan's skyline. The building itself has a striking steel-and-glass exterior, while interior spaces are calming—a world away from the hustle and bustle of the energetic city. Guests can relax with a cocktail in the rooftop bar, admiring the earth-toned furniture, birch-tree accents, and floor-to-ceiling windows that look out on a nearby sculpture garden. Rooms and suites are fashioned in soothing creams and dark woods and come with iPod docking stations and complimentary Wi-Fi; for working travelers, the business center is equipped for videoconferencing. A 130-seat restaurant will open in February with a garden.
For your pooch, The James offers amenities from local pet store DoggyStyle, a water bowl at the front door—and a concierge who carries dog biscuits.
Unlike most hotels that fill their guest-room fridges with generic candy bars and sodas, The James stocks its mini-bars with favorite local snacks and drinks.
Art is a major emphasis at The James, so keep your eyes peeled for important works. Even-numbered guest rooms were designed by New York-based artist John-Paul Philippé.
Arrive at John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK), which is approximately 20 miles from the hotel. Anticipate anywhere from 30-90 minutes of travel time, depending on traffic. Or, you may opt to fly into Laguardia Airport (LGA), which is approximately 10 miles from the hotel. Anticipate anywhere from 20-60 minutes of travel time, also depending on traffic.27 Grand Street, New York, New York, United States
