Just Plain Awful
By nickynnyc on 5/9/2015
So my friend and I were in the Jane Ballroom at 7pm or so. We left to meet some friends out front and there was no "doorman" out front at the time. We came back five minutes later (9:05pm) and there was the doorman. And he wouldn't let us back in. We had drinks for two hours, we step outside to bring in new friends and suddenly there's a "private party". At 9:05pm. In NYC?! We came back later (10:30pm), there was a new doorman and he let us right in. Not sure what happened to the "private party"?! My point is the staff here is just plain awful. And rude. And not terribly bright. Do NOT go here. There's so many other places in the LES or West Village or Soho where the staff is much much nicer. And the drinks even better. Too bad too. I used to LOVE The Jane Hotel.
Taking doorman to a whole new level...

The door a this place is a joke. We had half our party already inside with a table and bottles and this gas station attendant looking doorman who claimed to be the manager refused to let 3 girls, 3 guys in at 10pm. Give me a break this place is nice inside but the attitude at the door is completely ridiculous. This Monopoly man looking fake hipster was rude to our party and even others waiting in that fake lobby. Best part is there were 20 people inside the place. Maybe this fake manager should put some more tape around his glasses and realize his place is not any good anyway. If you want to have a carefree night getting into a place with friends DO NOT go here.
Don't Hate on The Jane

The Jane is a great place to meet a group of people and have a few drinks. Just sit down in the lounge, relax and let the staff serve you. The bar area can be a little tough to navigate.

People at this place look like they are trying so hard that it is painful to watch.
So rude at the door

Me and my boyfriend were meeting friends at the jane street hotel ballroom. As we approached the door a young lady who was the host asked us if we have a table and I said yes as well as the name of our party but she didn't have us on the list and rudely pushed us to th side letting other people walk in. The bouncer at the door told us to "remove ourselves because we were clutturing his lobby"! When my friend came out to get us they let us in with a smirk on their ridiculous faces. Dear new yorkers I know we live in great city where we can't get into many places without paying some cash to the door people but the only thing I asked for is some respect. I would never go back to that place or recommend it to anyone. I left the place after an hour - it was overcrowded and definitely not worth the argument with the stupid bouncer.
