Solo Habitat  The Jane Hotel, New York City

When  Any road trip whose itinerary includes Manhattan 

Why  $79 a room, for starters, smack between the West Village and the Hudson, not to mention a thousand hotels charging five times as much. Of course, what you get is not exactly a “room.” More like a sleeper on the Lakeshore Limited — a berth, more like. But in the new age of covering one’s own expenses, The Jane is both an oasis in the Manhattan desert and evidence of an industry sensing a market. And every soloist filling its sunlit breakfast café knows it. (See our list of more Jane-like soloist-loving habitats.)
