Stay at The James

Would recommend Tue, Feb 3, 2015
Fantastic hotel in a great central location. The staff is fantastic, very polite and friendly, from the doorman (Scott's a great guy) the desk staff and even the cleaning staff. Walking distance to many excellent restaurants, at least 3 Starbucks within 5 minutes walk. Walking distance to just about everything in the downtown area, or only a $5-$6 cab ride if the weather isn't so great.

Attractions

Signature Lounge on the 96th floor of the Hancock building. Awesome night time views of the city. Absolutely go there for drinks. 95th floor is the restaurant, but we didn't dine th

Great Hotel Close to Mag Mile

Would recommend Wed, Dec 3, 2014
This is a great small boutique hotel. If you enjoy great hotels with that different non chain feel this is a great hotel. It is a little expensive but price is worth it. Room service is over priced for the quality of the food. I would recommend going to one of the great restaurants around the area.

Nightlife hint

Great bars around including the red head piano bar. one tip dress nicer and have dress shoes on or you will not be let in.

Fun and funky place in a great location

Would recommend Tue, Nov 4, 2014
The staff at the James couldn't be nicer, and the rooms are both hip and comfortable. I needed to put up some family members, and we got two great rooms for good value in a superb location. My 25-year-old son thought it was the coolest room he had ever stayed in, but it was also comfortable enough that I would have happily stayed there. Oh, and the James has a great kitchen and bar scene as well.

Brief but great stay

Would recommend Thu, Aug 14, 2014
I stayed at the James Hotel Aug 6-8. The hotel was able to provide an early check in with 15 minutes of my arrival. The hotel is of the minimal persuasion, but that is of my liking. My room was on the 8th floor away from the elevators. I was able to sleep restfully each evening. Complimentary newspapers (Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Chicago Tribune) were available each day. The Steakhouse is on the expensive side within the restaurant, but the location is outstanding being one block off of the Magnificent Mile. Complementary rides within the CBD are available through the front desk. Bicycles are available to use as we'll complementary. Water (triple filtered) is available in your room (also complementary). I was pleased the hotel as a 2:00 pm check out, yes 2:00 pm! This was greet to wrap up a noon conference then return to the hotel to check off. The front desk was very helpful. Taxis ready if you need them. I would recommend this hotel!

Attractions

The Magnificent Mile is only a block away from the hotel.

Good times

Would recommend Wed, Nov 6, 2013
Everything is good about the James, I've stayed there before and would rec it to others, however the one bad spot we had was a reception---with a super loud band---I could hear the singing of lyrics like it was in my room. Other than that, it was fine. Check with front desk if they are having a wedding reception before you go.

Shopping hint

Don't use the wet bar, full bar across the street at Trader Joe
