Stayed for two nights at the James early March 2020 and really enjoyed the stay. Service minded reception, great location and rooms of a size difficult to match in mid-town Manhattan. Also enjoyed the complimentary wine on a sunday afternoon - was a good way to cool down after a hectic day. Only one thing to mention on with a sour flavour - tried to enter the bar at the basement saturday night and was told it was reservations only. Other people seemed to enter withou reservation. Staying at the hotel one would expect to be invited to the party? Read less

This was our families first trip to NYC and The James Nomad was the perfect fit for us. Upon arriving the architecture was beautiful. We were then greeted by the hotels doorman (Which happened to be Cuban like us) very gracious everyday and orientated us when needed. Checking in was effortless, as we arrived early and dropped our bags and went to explore. We were greeted by Arianna (spelling) inviting us back for wine and cheese. Perfect way to settle in. The lobby was so inviting with sofas, tables, intimate areas, water , fruits , coffee, everyday. Throughout this time was the fear of Covid 19 so we were extra cautious as well as the hotel. We stayed 4 nights and the complete staff was more than gracious. Everyone a bit concerned over the virus and what was happening but always suggesting places for us as a family and always engaging in conversation having a great time. The evening front desk person Phil was very helpful in getting us around and safe with his insight. The location of The James was perfect for us 1st timers with everything so close and walking distance. Ubers were there in minutes if needed or taxis. Our room was clean, plenty of light from the windows, spacious, and some views. The complete staff treated us as family and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The James Nomad! Our 1st trip with The James Nomad but not our Last! Read less

Mar 14, 2020 TLQX

Rooms are nice, but the service is among the worst. This is NOT 4-star service. The doormen were generally MIA and of the 5 people I dealt with at the front desk, two were helpful and 3 were downright rude. Housekeepers didn't clean my room one night. Next night they did, but didn't replace some towels and toiletries.

Just back from a 4 day break and really enjoyed staying at The James, great location, friendly staff, including Jose and Aolis, who went above and beyond helping us. I stayed with my daughter and a close friend and we had the Jimmy Suite.. absolutely loved it, the only thing I’d say is they need some hooks on the wall for coats etc as not a lot of wardrobe space.. however they did bring us a rail and extra coat hangers when we asked. Would definitely recommend and go again. Read less

I'm writing this review specifically to acknowledge the exceptional customer service offered by a wonderful young woman named Arianna. I was catching up on some work in the lobby before departing and Arianna stopped to check on me and ask how my stay was. I had had a good 3 day stay at the James NoMad, however my only complaint was that the shower was lacking a shower curtain liner; it only had the fabric curtain. I let her know that I had let the front desk know it was missing a couple of times but it was never fixed. I had already checked out, and forgot to mention it out check-out, but Arianna acknowledged my issue by refunding the resort fees I had already paid, which I did not expect. I was very pleased by her going the extra mile to end my stay with a smile. She was very professional, authentic, and a pleasure to speak with. In fact, all of the staff was quite friendly and relaxed which can be hard to find in NYC. I appreciated Arianna especially! Read less
