Love this hotel! I love the modern/mid-century decor that suits Chicago so well! The room was a Deluxe King which wasn't huge, but plenty big for a long weekend. The bathroom wasn't huge either, but again, it was just fine! It was spotless and comfortable and welcomey, which was most important. And turn down service came with a different treat each evening. The two best features of the hotel is its location and its staff! Other than a train ride to Wicker Park (ps I Cream Cafe and Big Star for tacos are a must!) and a taxi ride to Second City, there was no need for a car! Everything was right out your door! Walked along the lake every morning. And the staff was incredible! I usually lean on google and yelp for any travel questions I have, but the Concierge at the James was invaluable! Loads of great recommendations! The business center was great, the gym wasn't huge but had everything I needed, the spa was tiny but got a fantastic massage! I didn't try the restaurant, but had a cocktail at the bar one rainy afternoon while I wrote postcards and it was delicious and the service was delightful. Oh and they let you borrow bikes!! As much as I love hotels and rarely go back to the same one twice, I would definitely go back to the James.
