About the Jane Hotel
The Jane Hotel is housed in a historic brick neoclassical structure built in 1908. One hundred years later, the West Village building, which originally served as a hotel for sailors, was restored and turned into the Jane. The landmarked hotel, one of Manhattan’s quirkiest, hippest and cost-efficient places to stay, overlooks the Hudson River and is adjacent to the Meatpacking District. Chelsea, SoHo, and Union Square are a quick ride – bikes are complimentary for guests – or a leisurely stroll away. If you’re not in the mood to shop, eat or drink, head across West Street to Hudson River Park or the High Line Park for some prime people-watching.
The Jane’s three types of rooms – the Standard Cabin, Bunk Bed Cabin and the Captain’s Cabin – all reflect the hotel’s maritime heritage. The Standard and the Bunk Bed rooms both resemble sleeper cars in trains: The Standard, 50 square feet, sleeps one and has just enough room for your luggage. If you’re in the mood to get cozy, the Bunk Bed rooms fit two guests. Both types of rooms utilize a communal bathroom. The Captain's Cabins come complete with private bathrooms, a full, queen or king mattress and a view of the Hudson and/or a terrace.
Besides the Jane’s 159 rooms, the hotel, renovated by Bowery Hotel and Maritime Hotel developers Sean MacPherson and Eric Goode, has an ornate lobby with high ceilings as well as the Ballroom – a dimly lit bar with brass-studded leather doors, a fireplace, dark wood paneling, velvet couches, drapes, chandeliers and Persian rugs.

In 1912 the hotel, then known as the American Seamen's Friend Society Sailors' Home and Institute, housed survivors of the Titanic.
William A. Boring, one of the architects behind Ellis Island’s Immigration Station, designed the building.
In 1944 the Seamen’s Friend Society sold the building to the YMCA.
Before its 2008 renovation, the Jane was an SRO called the Hotel Riverview; some of the residential hotel’s old tenants still live there.
Individuals looking for affordable lodging away from the city’s main tourist sites, but within walking distance of top-of-the-line restaurants and bars in the West Village, the Meatpacking District and SoHo.
