    Great location, great value

    Through Hotels.com we found a great deal at Hotel St. James. Three nights after tax came to $287.37 (He was also able to redeem our Hotels.com points for 1 free night). If we can swing comparable prices in the future, I would more than happily stay here again! The location was great, steps away from Times Suare. The room was clean and surprisingly spacious, given this is NYC. One of my favorite features of the hotel were the Luggage Lockers on the first floor. $5.00 covers one large locker for 24 hours. This was very convenient and user friendly.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel St. James New York City

    Good for the money

    from

    i was really nervous about the hotel because of the not so good reviews but it was fine. we stood from june 5-9 2004. we paid $110 a night. this hotel should be used if you are really on a low budget. the workers are friendly. the lobby is very nice just remodeled but the rooms are quite old maybe from the 1960's. the room has no cable only channels from 1-13. bring your own shampoo don't forget your blowdryer.. the room only provides you with towels of course and two little bars of soaps. the room itself is clean and okay not too shabby. please note the rooms do not have a/c but two windows that you can open at night for fresh air. the rooms are not hot just room temp. the elevators are little and old but okay looking. it is about 1/2 block down to times square very close and also the hotel is right next to a little store that closes until midnight great for snacks. overall i liked the hotel because it was cheap and right next to times square. i will stay there again since we just used it for showering and sleeping.

    Not so bad!

    from

    It wasn't so bad for the price. Arrived at the hotel, and wow! Times Square right near. Very convenient.

    We asked them if we could change to a bigger room with airconditioning, we could change it. ASK! Better negotiate if anything.

    This hotel is best if you plan to stay all day outside and ONLY come back to sleep.

    We woke up in the morning, took a shower, left the room and went to Deli downstairs just next door to grab something to eat for breakfast. We basically came back to the hotel room later day and took a shower and watch TV and slept immediately.

    Near by Deli opens early and close late so you can just drop by to grab something to bring to the room.

    Good value!

    from

    My friends and I stayed at the St. James May 5-10. We all agreed that it didn't deserve the bad reviews. The rooms were large, clean, fresh towels every day and newly remodeled bathrooms. They are undergoing renovations and the hotel was quite full but it was really quiet! The only noise was from the street but hey, it's New York! The others in our group had a room more towards the back and it was very quiet there. We thought it was well worth the money for the privilege of being 1/2 block from Times Square and within walking distance of many attractions. There are even 4 places to eat right right out the door! We would most definitely return!

    Good for those on a budget

    from

    My family and I stayed here with two small children. The hotel was average but great for the price. The staff was friendly and accomadating. I would stay here again if I were on a budget

    The St. James isn't so bad

    from

    The hotel is old and small. However the rooms were clean and comfortable. We stayed April 30 and May 1 when we didn't need heat or air conditioning. It is being rennovated so the price was cheap for New York and we couldn't get a room in any of the hotels we usually use. It is in easy walking distance to shopping, the plays, etc. If all you want is a cheap, convenient place to sleep, shower and change clothes this does the job. I'm not sorry we stayed there and we met some interesting people in the elevators.

    Fine for the price

    from

    We also had read horrid reviews about this place and couldn't cancel as Spring break meant all the room in NY were booked. But all in all, clean, friendly staff, and good value for money. For the price, I would stay there again, espeically once the rennovations are complete.

    I'LL NEVER STAY THERE AGAIN

    from

    I Stayed At Hotel St James in December. The first and only night I stayed there was no heat or hot water. I think the heat finally kicked in in the middle of the night but I will never stay there again.

    Not too bad for NY

    from

    I read the two horrible reviews above and was very nervous, since I had already booked at this hotel. However, my room was very clean and the people that worked there were wonderful.

    Clearly this is no luxury hotel, but for the price and location... I'd stay there again.

    Simply Horrible

    from

    My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel because every other hotel in the area was booked up for the night of our stay. We soon found out why this hotel had plenty of vacancies!!!! First, the hotel has no sign out in front of it. We walked right by it twice and finally had to call and ask for a landmark. When we arrived, they didn't have our reservation or the credit card number they took down to reserve the room. We waited about 5 minutes for an elevator that appeared to be falling apart. The hotel still uses actual keys, not the convenient cards. The room numbers are hand written on the doors with marker. The room was small and dirty and the bed was uncomfortable. There was radiator heat which made the room so hot that we had to sleep with the windows open and hear not only the clanking from the radiator, but plenty of noise from outside. We spent all night in 29 degree weather with 2 windows open, and we were still sweating when we woke up. The television did not have a remote. While this is a hilarious story to tell friends, I would NEVER stay at this hotel again. Not even if it was free!!!!!

    You get what you pay for

    from

    Me and my boyfriend are from New York but decieded to get a room for Valentines. Due to over booking by our original hotel we ended up staying at the Hotel St. James. Be prepared for not your typical stay at a hotel. First, they are in the middle of renovations and there is no sign outside the hotel, to let you know you are at the right place.

    Make sure to bring tolitries b/c they dont provide anything, and the room is furnaced heat which means it can get really noisy. So noisy that the furnace woke me and my boyfriend up four times through out the night with loud noises. And not just a little noise, the loud bangs would last for a long time. But I quess you get what you pay for, the rooms are usually $100 a night. But Im pretty sure there are better bargains out there. I know I will never stay there again.

    Tomorrow we leave the ship after 26 long and enjoyable days. As a review, I've put together a "best of the best" list. Best seats on a 777 300 aircraft - with only 2 of us and the layout of the plane is 3 seats on either side, we took row 25 because it has only 2 seats on each side, even though reviews indicate that the seats don't recline. In reality, they recline just as the other seats do, and you don't have a stranger sitting with you. Best Overall ...

    ... excited that it’s almost here! We get one day/night and one night off per week so I won’t have daily access to the internet- as we don’t have wifi everywhere. I’m looking forward to switching off from technology and living the dream because let’s face it gong kayaking everyday for 10 weeks isn’t working hard!!

We intended on staying out for a bit and going to a couple of bars after food, but the weather was so bad we headed home in favour of an early night and some rest after two nights of going to bed at 2am. The weather looks better for tomorrow, so we're going to go to the baseball in the afternoon and hopefully go out for a fee celebratory drinks to mark the end of elective on the last proper night we'll have here ...

They fall asleep with them on (scared of the dark) and they stay on till morning. I switched to rechargeables inside of a thirty day period soon after noticing how considerably cash I put in on ...
