nyc weekend recap

i figured it’d be nice to give a little recap on my trip to new york this past weekend.  we stayed at the james.  it’s a newer boutique hotel in the soho area (grand street and 6th).  we loved it.  the staff was incredibly kind and the room was exactly what you’d expect from a newer hotel i.e. flatscreen tv, comfortable bed, huge shower, heated bathroom tile, no bed bugs, etc.  they also served wine and cheese at 5 which we hit up both friday and saturday.  if you’re in nyc and not staying at the james, it’s worth it to pop by and have a drink at the rooftop bar with a fireplace and ridiculous view of the city.  i would stay there again.
