    Spent three nights at The James. I would not recommend this hotel. The room was dirty and over priced for the accommodations. Very disappointing. No response from management. Only bright side couple blocks from Michigan Avenue

    My friend and I had a wonderful time staying at the James. The location is a block away from the magnificent mile and right in the middle so your close to everything! The hotel is on the modern side and very clean, friendly and comfortable!...More

    Just had a 4 day stay here after previously going to San Francisco and Seattle, the hotel was by far the best. Extremely clean and the staff were extremely helpful. Very central for the attractions and Close Michigan Avenue

    The location is excellent. The people friendly and helpful. The premium rooms (the ones at the building corners, street side) are large, the bed is good. These rooms are however rather noisy. For that price I would expect more comfort.

    I would say it's not anti kid, but it's definitely an adult environment. Other than taking out the bikes there's probably not a lot of kid activities.

    The swimming pool will still be available in the hotel next door and as long as your are guests of The James and you present your key cards you will be given full access to the pool.
