Such a lovely boutique hotel! Comfy beds, modern, impeccably clean rooms, and fantastic amenities like free wifi and a great gym and spa. This was the second time I've stayed at The James in Chicago and I'm so glad I did. I even enjoyed a fabulous massage this time and couldn't recommend it more. My only negative feedback would be that the hotel advertises a happy hour deal at their bar (which in hindsight was never honored when I had a glass of wine during the special hours) and also a $10 daily credit towards food or beverages at their Primehouse restaurant (as part of their $14.95 hotel facility fee) which was never honored on my bill. I had to ask about it upon check-out, and was eventually credited...but having to even ask felt very awkward. I didn't want to be cheap, but If you advertise it on your website, it should be honored without having to inquire. Strangely details about the Hotel Facility Fee also drop off on the mobile version of the James Hotel I wonder if this is something they are trying to phase out? Anyway...these little glitches weren't enough to ruin my stay and I would definitely return to this perfectly situated property again and again.

We were in town for work and fun. The hotel is beyond accommodating. We have the kids there and they took such an incredible care of us. We had a very cool room with a media room and oversized bed. Not sure why but so glad we did. The kids love love love it. Great amenities and such kind and caring staff. Thank you James Chicago!

Nice Hotel, Tim Sample the concierge did a fantastic job. Please go see him if you want to know what to do or book anything. Bed and pillows really confortable, room is ok, the door of the washroom (slide type ) is a bit noisy , especially in the middle of the night. The sink, has no slope, so it needed to be rince all the time.

We had a group of four people and were looking for a suite/loft type room in a good location. The James Hotel hit the mark all of these criteria and was also a great value. We had numerous complements for our visitors that lived in Chicago about how nice the hotel and room were. The hotel staff and gym amenities are exceptional! The beds, bedding, and pillows are fantastic! We loved the valet guys! They were extremely professional, friendly, and helpful. We had a few visitors with cars and they took care of them all without any issues. The mobile/tablet app is amazing and very intuitive. Requesting specific services were super easy, very fast, and somewhat addicting. All other hotels should implement this software.

Check in experience was very poor. NOT valet parking IS available, but only if you ask specifically where the parking is, otherwise you will be directed to download an app when parking is available within the same block as the hotel. The checkin desk clerk insisted we download an app before telling us where the parking was, although she new full well that parking was available within the same block as the hotel
