My husband and I stayed at The James for five nights in September. The Hotel is nice enough, but the price tag is beyond what you get for the money. We paid $500 a night, so when the bathroom sink clogged (and stayed that way) for two days and I had to repeatedly call for hand towels (all this AFTER the room had been made up) I began to think we made a mistake. Also, the bar on the roof has become popular and on Saturday night we could hear the party up there until well after midnight. The staff is friendly enough, especially the door men. The continental breakfast is nothing more than two (pump) thermos coffee dispensers and a plate of small scones. We had to ask the staff when the coffee and scones were gone, which was quite often. They also advertise that fresh fruit is served every afternoon....this is a bowl of oranges or apples.
We probably would not choose this hotel again.
