The aftermath of a great nights rest.

Minimal, modern, and clean <3 the way to my heart.

I live here now.

A little somethin’ for everyone. We went for the M&M’s and Snickers.

They offer an amazing complimentary happy hour in the lobby every day from 6-8pm with wine and cheese. We stayed the full 6-8pm.

Said “great friend” enjoying some R&R in the lobby post-happy hour.

Super chic and modern bathroom shower with great water pressure ☺.

Gorgeous lobby design details overlooking west Soho.

The rooftop bar, Jimmy at The James, offers some of the best views of downtown Manhattan that you can find. Sadly it was a bit chilly when we stayed so we did not get to swim in the POOL (yes, rooftop pool), but I’ll definitely be back.

Highs & Lows

  • Truly unbeatable views of Lower Manhattan

  • Incredible location in walking distance of Soho and Tribeca’s very best spots.
