Luxury botique hotel in a great location May 15, 2011
I am absolutely in love with the James Hotel Chicago. I have have stayed here for at least a total of 2 weeks combined and have never had a bad experience. Five business trips and one personal trip and each one was fantastic.

Upgrades seem to be fairly common, as I have received one each time I've stayed.

The overall updated mod look of each room works well and the amenities are perfect. Kiehl's products in the bathrooms, cookies on the bed and music playing in your room when you arrive.

The location can't be beat. It's 2 blocks off Michigan Ave and 4 blocks from the blue line. The staff is ultra helpful seem to really take pride in their work.

I can't imagine staying anywhere other than the James while in Chicago.

Boutique Luxury Aug 29, 2010
I just came back from Chicago in late August 2010 and highly recommend this hotel.

Unlike some big chain hotels you were made to feel very welcome. Great small touches like amazing soft towels, free internet, very comfortable rooms and even free ice/a sweet delivered to your room at night.

They also have a excellent gym, very helpful staff and are in a very good location, north of the loop (but you can walk into the centre in 15 minutes) and very close to the Main shopping area. Navy Pier is only 10/15 minutes or so walk away.

Did I mention the great restaurant in the hotel, being one of the best steak restaurants in Chicago (try the 40 day aged rib eye steak)one of the best I have ever had. Even the breakfast is great, try the jam with English Muffins!

It is on the more expensive side, but treat yourself! A great hotel in a great city. Highly recommended
