Great hotel location!

Although this is an older hotel it was a great value. It had exactly what I needed - a bed, air conditioning, a shower and it was in the heart of the theatre district. If you are coming to NYC to stay in your room - why visit?! It was a clean place to rest, shower, change clothes and go off to my next show. There are many places to eat nearby, great subway access and a very friendly front desk staff.

excellent choice for location and cleanliness. Please don't listen to complaints about narrow hallways, small rooms and elevators. This building is WWII era when people wanted simple and modest. Stay at the Marriott and pay 3 times the rate if you need BIG. This place is historic and charming

Noisy Nights

Old hotel, small room, clean and reasonably priced, good location. The jack hammer between midnite and 2:00 am was a problem. Also beeping from truck backing up. If you go ask for a room at back of hotel!

St. James Hotel

The location of the hotel is excellent, just steps from Time Square. The hotel was clean and hotel staff are super friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a “no frills” economical place to stay in NYC...stay at St. James Hotel. I would stay here again!

Convenient but tired hotel

We wanted a hotel close to the theatre district. Unfortunately this very tired hotel is badly in need of a renovation. The furniture was worn out and the water in the shower was lukewarm. The staff was honestly friendly and cordial. Fantastic location for Broadway shows.

1st Valentines weekend in NYC

Pros: The hotel front desk staff
Cons: Elevators and beds
Location: Hotel was close to everything
The staff was super nice they moved our room to 1207 because the first room furnace was loud . The elevators are kind of slow and could use some updating. The bathroom in the room was nice. The over all room was good enough to sleep dress and go also great location to Time Square.
