My sister and I were in town for a wedding the weekend of May 18th. The first two nights we stayed in Des Plaines where the wedding was located. For our last night, we wanted to stay somewhere downtown Chicago. The James ended up winning out over theWit and Public due to it's central location. It's literally around the block from the Magnificent Mile where all the hustle and bustle is at. We happened to be there during the NATO convention, which wasn't the most ideal time to go but that didn't even really damper our stay at the James. From the moment we walked in, we received the most exceptional service! I can't remember the last time I felt so taken care of at a hotel, it was truly remarkable. The rooms had more of a loft apartment feel than a hotel room, I actually really liked it! The rooms were minimal but stylish. We also ordered dinner from room service which arrived promptly within 20 minutesI We ordered the penne pasta which isn't the most exciting offering on the menu but it was tasty! I would definitely recommend staying at the James if you ever visit Chicago!
