Lovely boutique hotel, beautiful art deco design. The gorgeous aesthetic of the lobby and restaurant carries in to the rooms with period styled furniture and wall treatments. The rooms are small, in true Manhattan fashion, but very comfortable. A friend and I stayed for 4 nights in a double room with two double beds and had a great stay. The beds are super comfy with high quality linens and pillows, and the staff turns them down for you every evening and leaves truffle chocolates on your pillow. We had no problem with the length of the beds, but as we are both average height females, I could see that your feet might dangle off the end if you're tall. The bathroom has nice fixtures and they provide C.O. Bigelow bath products, robes and slippers. There are 4 small glass shelves near the mirror and a larger shelf under the sink with extra towels etc. We had enough room to store 2 toiletry kits, and lay out some of our cosmetics. The curtains work well to block out light at night, and we found the room to be quiet and restful (we were on the 10th floor). I would suggest requesting a room on a higher level that is away from the elevator, to reduce the amount of noise from hallway traffic late at night.
As other reviewers have mentioned, there is not a lot of closet space; it's about 2ft deep with a single hanger bar, 3 small drawers at the bottom and an area for shoes. Upper shelf has a bit of space but also contains the in-room safe. This is more than adequate if you are only staying for a few days but I will admit it gets a bit squishy when you've got two people's clothes for 5 days. In order to make the most of the closet, we both packed extra wire hangers and hung up as many of our clothes as we could. The rest we managed to fit in the drawers or on the shelf. Once we were unpacked, we put our suitcases one-inside-the-other and stored them in the space above the closet. This really helped with keeping the room free of clutter and maximizing the space. There is a bench seat and desk in the room which provide enough surface storage for putting down purses and daily shopping.
The hotel is 2 blocks from a subway station on M, F, L and Path lines, so it makes getting around pretty easy if you want to avoid cabs. It's also in easy walking distance to the Meatpacking district and Highline. There are some nice restaurants in the area and I would highly suggest Murray's Bagels, right around the corner, for breakfast.
Finally, I'd like to mention that the staff at The Jade is really friendly and helpful. Everyone we met there, from the desk staff to the bellmen, to the waiters in the restaurant and the housekeepers, were courteous, smiling and more than willing to help us with anything we needed.
So overall, we had a great experience and would definitely stay at The Jade again. It is expensive, as most good hotels in New York are, but I felt that they delivered good quality for your money.
