The Jane Hotel
113 Jane Street | (212) 924-6700
This century-old West Village landmark, built in 1908 as a sailors' lodging, lies on the edge of the Meatpacking District nightlife hub, 6 blocks from the High Line park and a subway stop. Nautically themed single and double rooms resemble cabins, with berth-like beds and bunks, plus shared bathrooms; upgraded cabins have larger beds and private bathrooms. All have free WiFi, flat-screen TVs, DVD players and iPod docks. The on-site restaurant serves French-Moroccan fare and a popular brunch menu, and the opulent Victorian-style lobby bar is a hotspot. Guests have free use of bicycles to explore the city.
