If you want to experience an alternative side to New York then stay at The James in Soho. Soho has some great bars and restaurants. If you want to visit the attractions there is a hop on hop off bus service that has a stop nearby. The hotel itself is very functional. The rooms are quite small as compared to some hotels but everything you need is there. The hotel was also very quiet so we had a great nights sleep. The staff at the James are very friendly and welcoming. Special mention goes to Julia in the Garden bar. Excellent service during all the times we had evening drinks there.
One low point was the rooftop bar Jimmys. We went up there twice and due to very poor service we waited and waited. In the end we gave up and returned for good service in the Garden bar.
To finish on a positive. In the morning there is fresh coffee and pastries. In the evening there is wine and cheese followed by cookies and coffee. All provided free for guests. We had a great stay and would not hesitate to return.
