Lonely Planet review
The claustrophobic will want to avoid the Jane’s tiny 50-sq-ft rooms, but if you can stomach living like a luxury sailor, check into this renovated red-brick gem, which was built for mariners in the early 20th century (survivors from the Titanic also stayed here in 1912).
The small cabin rooms have shared bathrooms; the more expensive captain’s quarters come with private commodes. The gorgeous ballroom/bar looks like it belongs in a five-star hotel. The excellent but affordable Cafe Gitane is here as well.
Our independent authors have visited The Jane and selected this as one of our recommended guesthouses in The Village, Chelsea & Meatpacking District.
Description provided by property
Facing the Hudson River in the West Village, the Jane hotel is a brand-new 'upscale hostel' for the discerning traveler. With compact singles going for $99 and a swanky scene, this hotel is a unique choice with history to boot.
From 1908 to the 1940s, what is now the Jane served as hotel for sailors, The American Seaman's Friend Society Sailors' Home and Institute. The building's nautical past is preserved today: the 'cabin rooms' are as compact as a sailor's quarters, though thankfully they sport some modern touches like an iPod dock, flat-screen TV, and A/C. Larger 'captain cabins,' featuring views of the Hudson, will be available in 2009. Beds sleep one and are attractive, if rather narrow, with storage space below and 'train racks' above for additional storage. The effect is both charmingly old-fashioned and chic. All rooms have a phone, alarm clock, free wi-fi Internet access, and even a bathrobe and slippers. Guests share bathroom facilities (two showers, two toilets) with the entire floor; there are plans to install a second bathroom on each floor in the upcoming months.
With great rates, cozy rooms, a fabulous location, and what promises to be a fun combination of vintage furniture and hip amenities, this hotel provides a good deal for the adventurous traveler on a budget.
