Cozying Up to The Jane

I have yet to stay a night at The Jane — Bowery Hotel honchos Eric Goode and Sean MacPherson’s trendy makeover of the old downtrodden Hotel Riverview at 113 Jane Street.

But industry blog Hotel Chatter recently checked in and came away with this video-enhanced report on its tiny, 50-square-foot rooms, its “baked-in aroma” of body odors, its noisy A/C units, and its strange interactions between overnight guests and the low-rent SRO tenants that the new guys in charge just can’t seem to get rid of:

When you plod down the hallway for a middle-of-the-night pee, The Jane takes on a sort of dorm-like air, except that your neighbor isn’t the star of your school’s rugby team but some old guy in his boxers watching The Simpsons with his door cracked.

Still, only $99 a night–whatta bargain!
