The James Hotel

Located in NoMad (that’s North of Madison Square Park for those not familiar with NYC’s never-ending neighborhood acronyms), The James Hotel’s breathtaking Beaux-Arts-style building has remained a fixture on Madison Avenue since opening in 1904. Once inside, a winding staircase leads down to the spacious David Rockwell-designed lobby—bathed in deep chocolate, beige, gray and crimson hues—with large comfy leather chairs and substantial coffee tables. The pièce de résistance, however, is the lobby’s cascading two-story contemporary waterfall, which reveals an enormous vintage black-and-white

Offering not one but three dining options, it would be an arduous task to go hungry at The James hotel. Foodies can choose from Italian fare at the pasta emporium Scarpetta; enjoy French and Mediterranean-inspired small plates while serenaded by live music/DJs at The Seville; or grab a drink and light bites in the Lobby Bar. Those that fancy themselves wine connoisseurs can head to the old-French-parlor-inspired Bar Bordeaux—the mezzanine level lounge that overlooks The Seville.

Given the hotel’s striking façade and interiors, it’s only natural that Hollywood came calling; popular primetime hits, including White CollarSmashElementaryThe Good WifeCurb Your Enthusiasm and more have been filmed at the hotel.   

The James’s luxe guest accommodations include 294 rooms and 23 suites, including four specialty suites. Guests can entertain (or just relax) in the 1,050-square-foot penthouse Corner Pocket Suite. For even more space, the suite can connect to the James’s New Yorker, an equally impressive penthouse space featuring a 12-foot Chesterfield sofa, white lacquer crocodile-embossed dining table and, of course, framed New Yorker covers that date back to 1920s through to today. Both feature grand king-size beds and sunken Jacuzzi tubs. The other two specialty suites include the Broadway Diva Suite—a shout out to the history of (and legends who’ve graced) the Great White Way. Recalling the Prohibition era and complete with a discreetly hidden back room, the Speakeasy Suite features a king-size leather Chesterfield bed, hardwood floors and solid oak wainscoting, custom bar, barstools made from wine barrel stands and a poker table for four.
