On a Clear Day in Soho, You Can See the W Hoboken
November 24, 2010 at 3:35 PM
There's yet another reason to request a higher floor at The James New York--the views. Once you get past looking at the worker bees going in and out of Holland Tunnel below and once you get past staring at the gargantuan Trump Soho, you can take in the rest of the western Manhattan.
You can even see all the way across the Hudson River into Hoboken where the W Hoboken is beckoning you to visit with it's giant red W.
This view was snapped from room 1405 which has a king bed inside (about 315-sq.ft.) We found rates for this weekend going at $314 a night for this room but if you opt for a room with a queen bed, that drops the rate to $284 a night (as well as the square footage to 280 sq.ft.)
Interestingly, the James has no rooms with two beds. So...you know...love the one you're with.
Excuse the hand.
Disclosure: We received a complimentary night at the James Hotel as part of gift bag swag and because of that, we don't think it's fair to do a full review. But we did think that hotel geeks would get a kick out of this view of the W Hoboken.
