Opened in 1907 as the American Seaman’s Friend Society Sailors Home, this 14-story landmark was a residential hotel when Eric Goode and Sean MacPherson took it over and renovated it. The wood-paneled rooms were inspired by vintage train sleeper compartments—there’s a bed (or bunk bed) with built-in storage and brass hooks for hanging up your clothes. No en suite, however, which is reserved for the Captain’s Cabins, along with iHome docks and wall-mounted TVs. Very much the vibe you'd expect in prime trendy Meatpacking District accommodation. There's also the Old Rose, which you can grab good local produce cooked Italian style bite across breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night dining, alongside local craft beers on tap, and natural wines. The hotel offers a 24-hour front desk too, so you can really experience the city that doesn't sleep.

Location perks? Nestled in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan.

Time Out tip: Don't stay without visiting the The Whitney. This huge museum of American art is only two blocks from The Jane and boasts a jaw-dropping 15,000-strong collection.
