I booked the James due to close proximity to all the venues we wanted to visit so everything was in walking distance. Check in was a breeze with Ashley. She was so helpful. There is valet parking available but we used the lot right next door to the hotel which was cheaper and since we walked everywhere with exception to one cab ride, we didn’t need the car. Room was clean, warm being December and decor was is what I call retro modern boutique hotel, simple and pleasing. It’s an older building so the rooms a bit smaller then the big hotel chains but so nicely put together. Loved the room ‘ipad’, so easy to use for ordering room service. The entire hotel was clean and smelled good, not stale or residual odors from food, smoking etc. cleaning staff were all friendly and didn’t such a great job in cleaning the room. The concierge and doormen were very helpful in answering our questions regarding directions and getting us a cab. As note they allow pets though we did not bring ours this trip so that is a nice amenity. We will definitely be looking to book another stay with the James in the future.

The James hotel is located a block from Michigan Avenue, which is perfect. The hotel's common areas and rooms are stylishly decorated and well-maintained. Our room was sparkling clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The price was a bargain. Loved it in every way. Highly recommend.

The staff was nice enough to deliver some macaroons and a birthday card for my wife! I had written it down in the "special notes" section when I reserved the room and didn't really expect much out of it, but they went ahead and made the weekend a little more special for us!

Always love the James Hotel! My girlfriends and I stayed in the Loft Suite for a girls weekend and LOVED our room! It was perfect! We will be back hopefully sooner than later! The food, the service, the staff were impeccable- we felt like royalty!!!!

What better Concierge than a Chef Concierge. Tim is spectacular. Accommodated us and planned our trip magnificently well in almost effortless fashion. Very effective and had excellent recommendations.
