A few great cocktails is a crucial part of any visit to New York and luckily the ever-popular Jane hotel is a mere stumbling distance from the great bars that make the Meatpacking district.
This spot has a rich history – it has been housing travellers since 1909 and is doing its best to stick to the good-value ethos. The décor at The Jane is charmingly old NYC, a distinct boho-chic vibe with a distinctive ship-like feel and a few original features still in place – think taxidermy and glitter balls.
The staff here are super-friendly, there’s a great bar and restaurant and you’re perfectly located to explore West Village. One of the city’s best affordable boutique options if you're up for an experience and would rather not spend most of your budget on where you sleep.
The Jane’s cafe, Old Rose, on the first floor serves seasonal Italian fare throughout the day with craft beer on tab and a selection of natural wines.
The Jane Ballroom is a rather eccentric lounge bar, which by all-accounts has hosted some fairly epic parties in its time. There is also a terrace which is the perfect spot for a cocktail during the warmer summer months, with views out over New York’s Hudson River.
There are three types of room at the Jane; the Standard and Bunk Bed Cabins, are small, have shared bathrooms and have a cruise-ship cabin feel. They are good value if you’re travelling alone and want a place to crash, but can come up pretty cosy if there are two of you staying. The Captain’s Cabins are much larger (about five times the size) and come with their own bathrooms and either a little terrace or view out over the Hudson River.
The Jane is a short walk from some of New York's most well-known sites; both The Whitney Museum of American Art and the High Line are under 5-minutes' walk away and there are some great restaurants, bars and boutiques a stone's throw from the hotel. There are plenty of public transport options nearby should you wish to explore further afield.
