On a recent visit to New York I shacked up at the delightfully appointed Jane Hotel. It has been lovingly and thoughtfully restored in an early 1900s style. The hotel has a long and chequered past. It was notably the hotel that housed the Titanic's survivors after that fateful night in 1912. As someone who used to stay at the old Gramercy Park hotel back in the day, it feels like a real slice of a New York from days gone by (although the staff are far more attentive and the rooms are clean).
