I've stayed at the James several times now and as always it was a great stay. The location can't be beat, the rooms are stylish and understated, the beds are super comfortable and the service is friendly and professional. Check-in and check-out are smooth as flawless.
We usually book a king room and we upgraded to a loft suite which was extremely spacious. It actually would be a great room if you are traveling with a small child as there is a separate loft bed area. The only caveats are I think the loft suite is also an ADA accessible unit so there was no tub in the large bathroom which was OK, there were no dressers to place clothing in and the closet only had the bar halfway height up so hanging any long garments would be difficult. The other thing is that the HVAC vent unit was right next to the bed and it was pretty loud when it kicked it but since we were usually exhausted after a long day out and about in Chicago, we didn't hear it when we slept on the extremely comfortable bed.
I will stay at the James as usual when I return to Chicago next year.
