We stayed at The James for our daughter's college graduation trip. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was great for everything we wanted to see and do. The room was a little tight for three of us, but it was fresh, clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The linens were plush and cozy; the in-room amenities were plentiful and upscale. Tim Samples, our concierge, was fabulous. He took great care of us and kept in contact with us throughout the week as we were trying to make arrangements for various activities.

The staff was always friendly and helpful with all questions. We enjoyed the spacious room and had a good night sleep. Was not happy with our view from the room but still enjoyable. I also enjoyed our complimentary water every day in our room and the free coffee in the lobby. We had ordered from the Prime-house once (restaurant located in the hotel) and thought the cost was a bit pricey for the food which was OK. The hotel was always clean and love the decor. Shopping and restaurant was in walking distance and I recommend this hotel which is close to magnificent mile if your ever visiting the windy city.

Our first stay at the James was great! We woudl definitely stay there again. It is in a great location and staff is very friendly and helpful. The ammenties service is great and the rooms are nice and clean. It has a small hotel bar with bites that we enjoyed. There can be a bit of street noise at night but it can easily be covered with white noise.

We stayed at The James while attending the National Restaurant show. To be fair, the room was booked under the NRA site so we were given a"reduced" rate. While the lobby was very open, modern, inviting, our room was not impressive. The view overlooked roof tops of neighboring buildings which were littered with trash. The walls and air/heat registers had "dings", in need of paint, carpeting was torn near the walls. The shower was not good, we had no hot water, don't know if it was just our room or particular wing? The beds were very comfortable, no outside noise could be heard from corridors or neighboring rooms, nice selection of soaps and lotions,so there were many positives as well. I would just say that I felt let down, compared to what I envisioned, after reading many positive reviews.
