Air con a touch noisy
A magical weekend with my daughter for the Christmas Lighting Parade. The James is the perfect location for all the shopping and great restaurants. The staff was very friendly and the concierge were so helpful in making all my reservations for shows and dinners.
The ONLY thing I did not like is that there were not free movie channels to watch or even theater ones to purchase. I really enjoy the treat in a hotel of renting and watching movies when I retire for the evening. The James did offer a DVD player for a small fee, however, as an avid movie watcher I had already viewed all the movies in their selection.
Great location particularly if you want to shop as 2 minutes from Michigan avenue. Nice staff. Well equipped, comfortable and clean bedroom. Mojitos the best I have ever tried.
Attached restaurant very expensive for breakfast and uninspiring. $30 for oatmeal with bacon and banana on the side, cup of tea and OJ. Seemed rather excessive.
Bell staff and maids are top notch.
Walls, fixtures, furniture are showing their age.
comfortable beds big tv big sized bathroom very stylish
Excellent location. Fabulous comfortable bed. Free wi fi in the room.
- Very nice clean room - great fresh water every day in room for free - excellent Gym in basement!!!
- in front of window 3 loud fans (only our room in first floor)
In a fantastic central location.ideal for all the sights
We were in town for shopping, show at the Chicago Theatre, eating and drinking. The James was the perfect location and within walking distance to all we had planned for the weekend. Room was nice and beds were exceptional! Staff was very friendly and helpful starting with check in. I would recommend The James and will stay here again when visiting the "Windy City"
location, room, cleanliness, friendly and helpful staff.
too short stay
Staff was by far the best I have dealt with in my travels. Far exceeded my expectations in both service and genuine friendliness.
The room seemed a bit small, but being there only one night, it was certainly not a deal breaker. The lobby was very cold, which made waiting for friends or having a drink at the bar very uncomfortable, after all it is summer!
I liked the big shampoo bottles and the whole sustainable living effort
The room had plenty of space to move and the bed was really comfortable. The hotel is modern and in a very good location.
The wi-fi connection was not always great.
The service was perfect.
Wifi reception was poor
tv broke was replaced in less than 20 min.
ran out of toilet tissue
noise some people screaming and shouting loud in the lobby the day of my departure at 5 am the noise could be listen to the 15th floor. no one called the police or did somethig situation was scary
Can not thing of a thing
This is a nice little hotel. Comfortable and spacious feeling rooms and an excellent bed. Breakfast at the Primehouse was quite tasty and the bartenders and mix a good cocktail.
Air Handler in room was fairly loud
