The James Hotel New York Review

This hotel on the edge of SoHo never sacrifices comfort for style, so it's no wonder there's a high percentage of return customers: creative types, businesspeople, fashionistas, and anyone else with deep pockets. The lobby has fabulous double-height windows from which to appreciate amazing, unobstructed views, along with fresh-baked cookies, coffee, wine, and fresh fruit. Guest rooms are swank and simple, with dark-wood floors, floor-to-ceiling murals, and more huge windows facing south and west. A plant in every room (ostensibly a carbon-offsetting touch), and triple-house-filtered bottled water all contribute to an environmentally friendly ethos. The James Burke Kitchen on the ground floor is comfortable and popular, and Jimmy, the rooftop bar, is a winner. There's also a ground-level garden that's surprisingly serene, considering little more than a few plants separate it from the noisy world beyond. Bring your fashion A-game: the James attracts a well-dressed crowd.
