I have heard great things about the James and was looking forward to our visit. I was surprised that the lobby was on the second floor with the only elevator access was a service elevator down the block and through an alley. I recently had knee surgery so this was an inconvenience. Even though we were staying at the hotel we were unable to get reservations at their restaurant. Getting room service was difficult. You are provided a tablet to order from and it was confusing to navigate. The staff ... Read more

We had a great weekend stay at The James. Ideally located, right off of Lakeshore Parkway, around the corner from Eataly and all Magnificent Mile attractions. Staff was very helpful -- easy valet parking with in and out privileges, nice common areas (even though main lobby was under construction, well appointed rooms with plenty of outlets!

This hotel was so beautiful with incredible rooms (that we never wanted to leave), and kind staff that was always so helpful. The location is perfect for walking to River North restaurants, and really trendy bars.

The James Chicago is my home away from home. The perfect staff treats you always nice and even now with the lobby under construction everything runs as smoothly as possible. The location of the hotel could not be better in the city and the complimentary coffe in the morning and especially the apple cider afterwards are awesome. There might be newer and more luxury hotels in town but no hotel staff pays more attention to their guets than The James crew....

Well located in downtown Chicago. The staff are friendly and are genuinely hospitable. Kelly at reception deserves a specific mention of her fabulous manner as well as Tim for his tireless help. Close to restaurants, shops, pubs and clubs of all budget types. The James is very eco-conscious. The rooms are spacious and the beds are phenomenally comfortable.

I was in Chicago on business in January 2017 and the conference was held at The James - awesome service, everyone was friendly and super accommodating! The rooms were unique and comfortable. The location is prime and within walking distance of shopping and plenty of good restaurants.

I recently stayed here for a work conference, and my stay was amazing! They have such a kind staff, and are always more than willing to accommodate you and your needs! Their conference room is beyond grand, which made it that much easier to be in there for hours! Not to mention, the food that was served was nothing short of super yummy. I will absolutely stay here for all future trips to Chicago!

This is a really nice hotel, made even nicer by some great price reductions as they redo their lobby. And the construction doesn't detract from the hotel in any way. You just have to go to the second floor to check in. That's it. It's not loud or dusty or anything. The rooms are big and spacious and well-appointed. They have mini-tablets in every room now. So you can do all the stuff you'd normally do on your phone without blowing through your data. The bed linens are great. The robes are thick ... Read more

I have been to many business conferences and I must admit that the hospitality and courteousness of the entire James staff was incredible. I arrived well before check-in time but the staff were all accomodating and allowed me to check in early. The event space included a lounge called The Study that had a television and pool tabel. This was ideal to unwind after long meetings. The actual room was very spacious and the bed was super comfortable.I'd recommend The James for both leisure and busines... Read more
