    Great hotel, in the right location, next to the loop. We got a free upgrade to a studio room; the room was quiet, not such a good view, but it was bigger than our selection. The bed was amazing, love it!More

    As of 2 weeks ago, they still offer it. We went to use the pool next door but it's REALLY small. None of us ended up using it because of the size.

    The James is about a mile from the State/Lake stop on orange line. Or you could connect to Red line and get off on Grand stop. The James is 1-2 blocks from the Grand station.
