Perfect in every way

Saint Louis, Missouri

This was my first time in Chicago in thirty years and my husband's first time ever, so we wanted to get a hotel close to everything. I picked The James because I liked the location and the boutique feel. When we arrived, I was given a glass of red wine while I waited to check in. The check in process was smooth and efficient and all of the staff over the weekend were amazing. Very nice and extremely helpful. Our room had a large flat screen tv with premium channels and the bathrobes were heavenly. The price we paid was comparable to all of the other hotels on the Magnificent Mile and worth every penny. We will absolutely only stay at The James on our future, hopefully frequent trips to Chicago. It was a wonderful experience.

Nice but

Bridgewater, New Jersey

Stayed during a convention. No real changes since my last visit two years ago. I love the location, and the small unique shaped rooms are fine if you are solo. Would be difficult for two in my opinion. Enjoy the modern feel and look except for the flat bottomed sink in the bathroom which is stupid. Unfortunately the on site restaurant is horribly slow for breakfast, especially since it is so overpriced as well. Front desk personnel were better trained two years ago. This time they couldn’t find reservation even though I had number until they conferred with others.
