The first thing you notice upon check-in at the Hotel St. James is the glass partition separating guests from the hotel employees— much like you’d see in a pawn shop or prison waiting room. The perfect setting if Nicolas Cage decides to film a New York sequel to Leaving Las Vegas, the hotel provides Motel 6 style at Big Apple prices. Granted, the spacious $180 per night double rooms and $160 singles are a bargain compared to the luxury lodging options that dot the surrounding blocks. Then again, most of those places don’t have carpet stains or holes in the furniture. Nor do they elicit the dominant smell of generic cleaning products, the kind used in hospitals and elementary schools. A small television with cable is about the only provided amenity but given the state of this joint, you probably won’t want to spend much time watching it.Pros
At least you’re close to Times Square.
