Come for the rooftop pool, stay for the week

Nestled amongst the busting streets of SoHo, and offering unobstructed views of the Hudson and East River, the James Hotel is the perfect place to decide which of the city's waterways is the coolest (Bronx River, son!) and experience city culture & shopping at its best

Their outdoor space has everything you'd expect: plants, couches, and two wooden dogs fighting by the stairs

Rooftop pool = awesome

The spacious bathrooms feature two regular-sized sinks and one...extremely large sink

The James' rooftop also houses a bar (The Jimmy) that serves up a mean 12 Gauge Grog (many, many rums + passionfruit, lime juice, and nutmeg) and, once your head starts spinning, 360-degree views of the Manhattan skyline

And because they know you're gross, housekeeping comes twice a day. Nobody turns down turndown service
