5 stars!!! James is in a perfect location only 1 block from Millennium Mile and totally walking distance to everything in Downtown Chicago. I found a really good deal on one of the opaque travel booking sites, which ended up being a phenomenal value for this upscale hotel. The David Burke restaurant is amazing – they had a great deal for lunch Monday-Friday for $15 you get a steak (I had filet mignon), a vodka or gin martini, and a side dish (we had truffle fries and basil whipped potatoes). My girlfriend and I went there for a Friday late lunch and were so happy with the whole experience. However if you’re staying at the hotel, you can enjoy the DB restaurant 24 hours a day with room service. The bathroom amenities were all sulfate-free, organic, and smelled really good. The nightly turn-down service, bathrobe, and little cookie/treat on your pillow was such a nice touch to come home to after a night out on the town. I also really liked the little sitting area in the corner of the room. Oh, and the triple distilled water refilled twice daily was awesome. Finally, the last amazing perk is that the hotel is across the street from a Trader Joes so you can buy a bottle of wine, juice/water, or snacks and save money if you’re the type of person that may dip into the mini bar. I will definitely return to the James!
