        First time, but not the last”
        My girlfriend and I stayed at The James as part of a last-minute plan to go downtown. She had stayed there with family many years ago, but I had not. I do not normally enjoy going downtown and dealing with the busyness that usually comes with it, but The James made my night very enjoyable. The room was perfect for us. It was clean and cozy and the shower made it hard for me to not stand in there for hours! Highly recommend and will absolutely be staying there again!

        Modern and Comfortable Boutique Hotel - Great Location ”
        We needed a hotel for a weekend away without kids in the city. We had tickets to see our favorite musician at Huntington Park Pavilion and wanted a hotel near the venue and the Magnificent Mile. The James was a perfect fit. The staff was helpful and friendly, the rooms clean, modern and very quiet for the midst of the city. The morning coffee and evening wine and cheese was a great bonus. We would definitely stay here again. Perfect little gem for a weekend away.

        The James Was An Awesome Stay!”
        This Magnificent Mile hotel is walking distance to great shopping and tons of Chicago's best restaurants. The hotel is nicely appointed with comfy, clean and modern minimalist decor. Rachel at the front desk is incredibly helpful with an awesome, friendly personality so she's happy to make restaurant & entertainment recommendations for you. We had a Queen Suite - all of the suites face the interior of the building so you probably won't have a view of anything but concrete - but the rooms are spacious, have a very nice minibar, an excellent bathroom with fantastic bath & body products & a super comfy bed. The rooms have nice touches like Roman shades, a sliding track door for the bathroom and light dimmers. Couple of things that could be improved - 1) the sofas aren't super comfortable and the pillows end up hanging off the front or sides and 2) it would be nice to have USB ports for charging electronics on BOTH sides of the bed or in/near the windowsills. Thx for a great stay!

        Dear Shelli, Thank you for the great review of our hotel! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. With our upcoming renovation we will work on new sofa beds and adding standard USB ports to the room outlets! Thank you again, Sincerely,

        We went as a group of 4, and when we got there the double beds were sold out for the night. They brought us extra beds and sheets for the first night and said they would switch over to two bed room in the morning, well, I half expected it not to happen as it wasn’t spoken about again, but, lo and behold, the next day they moved our whole room while we were out. How REFRESHING for them to not be forgetful. They also held our bags for us when we checked out because our flight wasn’t until late that night. Great service, WILL be staying again.
