Pool by night, The James, New York


 

I arrived in New York last November in a terrible blizzard and it took more than three hours in a cab to get from JFK airport to my hotel, The James, in SoHo. So, after an efficient check-in, I made my way to Jimmy, the hotel’s bar next to its rooftop pool to unwind from my long transatlantic journey. With that incredible pool and its unbeatable views, it will come as no surprise that The James draws crowds throughout the summer as one of New York’s favourite hangouts high above the buzz of the streets. But even in the winter, Jimmy is packed with hotel guests and locals. This boutique hotel, whose 114 rooms combine minimalism with mid-century design, radiates the attitude and artistic feel of the neighbourhood. Ideally located for exploring downtown, The James New York SoHo is at Thompson and Grand, just one block from Tribeca and a short stroll from art galleries, unique stores and fine dining. A perfect place to start your New York journey.
