Exactly what I was looking for.Posted Aug 29, 2015
Pros: Cozy, clean and a great location for coffee shops, eclectic shopping and the Hudson River and river walk is right on the doorstep.
Cons: Leave the city/subway maps in view and remind guests about the river walk. Maybe point out the cafe.
Location: The river walks runs directly to the financial district and the 911 museum. Lots of coffee shops and neat restaurants are within a close walk.
The Jane is clean (spotless) and the unique experience I craved. It is NOT the cookie cutter Hotel I am accustomed to. The single traveler will feel very comfortable staying there.

Grand and full of 19th century atmospherePosted Aug 19, 2015
Cons: The people at the reception are not specially friendly.
Location: Somewhat peripherical, but not an issue.
I can fully recommend it. We had a room with bath and everything was just perfect.

Great for a short stay, maybe a long stayPosted Aug 18, 2015
Pros: Charm, price, staff, location, location, location
Cons: The heavy/bulky "core" attached to the key fobs could be modernized. Wished the mattress and pillows were more comfortable. Provide flip flops?
Location: High Line, Whitney Museum, Chelsea Piers, Hudson Jogging Path, Great Old New York.
I read about the location and charm of The Jane and was able to get a good deal via Expedia for an overnight in the City. The location can't be beat if you appreciate and want to stay in the West Village area. The interior of the hotel was pretty much how described on Expedia - full of old world charm and challenges. I was impressed with the efficiency of a standard "cabin" - it was like being on a boat, a small boat! As I was staying for just one night and lightly packed, it was big enough and remarkably quiet, except for adjacent opening/closing doors. The AC did its thing and drowned out most noises. The bathrooms were conveniently located, available and clean for the most part.The restaurant in the lobby was very nice and the night lounge seemed awesome, wish I had more time to explore. I though the staff was fine for this kind of place - friendly/knowledgeable enough, albeit young and probably thinking about their next job. I'd stay there again and would recommend to solo travelers on biz or pleasure.

OK for price, great location.Posted Aug 17, 2015
Cons: Staff. Big time.
Everything was OK for the cost, except the staff, not very helpful, not a great attitude; on top of that the staff handling the lounge/club (bouncers) where all awful, rude and just overall 'aholes'.

A piece of history with character and theme...Posted Aug 12, 2015
Pros: Polished brass and mirrors ..everywhere... Wooden panels and ancient lift facade hides a good technology refit....
Cons: Walls are a bit thin and rooms next to the shoreline road are somewhat noisy. Just leave the aircon on to drown the noise.
Location: Good for local eateries.
When you arrive at the Jane you feel ever so slightly that you walked in a Wes Anderson film. The decor and uniforms of the staff match the quirky mix in the common areas of tourist and permanent residents that match the cast of characters. Rooms are cabin themed but are air-conditioned and have the necessities.

Good Location, Friendly Staff, Budget TravelPosted Jul 23, 2015
I don't mind the incredibly small rooms, I was expecting that -- though they were not really comfortable. I was also aware that I'd not have a bathroom in-room. I've stayed in places before where there are shared bathrooms. However, I found the shared bathrooms particularly uncomfortable to use in this hotel. During the mornings especially, the hard-working cleaning staff did their best to keep the bathrooms clean but they're not going to be able to clean after everyone. The shared bathrooms are also co-ed and I was not happy with being in close quarters with so many strangers. Also, don't expect to sleep past 7:00 a.m. because the sound of doors slamming open and closed (people having to use shared bathrooms), it's impossible to sleep. The shared bathrooms were very crowded in the mornings. The building is beautiful, the lobby is classic, the bar is cool, staff nice -- but I don't think I will stay there again.

Pros: Lobby is very beautiful and some staffs are very friendly.
Location: Bring your running shoes and enjoy the jog along side the river and then grab a nice cup of coffee from Chelsea market.

Nice if you know what to expect!Posted Jul 20, 2015
Pros: The location and the funky, cool factor.
Cons: Soap and shampoo in the room to use. Complimentary water.
Location: I was there to visit the jazz clubs, Corneila St Cafe, Smalls. Also make sure to walk the Highline, Whitney Museum and galleries in Chelsea.
The location is perfectly situated for the Highline, Whitney , and the Village. All are within a short walking distance and the location is in a nice neiborhood with lots of places to eat. The hotel is only for sleeping in though as I had a single and it's really small with a bathroom down the hall. The room has a TV and is air conditioned. Oh and they give you a towel, robe and slippers to wear. That's it. There's a cafe and a bar downstairs. I didn't visit either of them but Sat night there were about 200 twenty something's waiting to get in the bar. I didn't hear a peep from my 4th floor room. For the price in the area , I would reccomend for a night if you don't mind the group bathroom.
