Stayed here for a week for work. It is very close to the core. The rooms are fairly small but very clean. The front desk staff are very friendly, including the bell staff. The only complaint I have is the noise level - you can easily hear the rooms next door or the elevators. The air con gets pretty loud too.
The neighbourhood is quiet during the weekdays but come the weekend, it can be quite loud.
Overall, it's a good hotel for a short stay.

My wife and I stayed at The James for 5 nights while we visited Chicago. An excellent location but it falls short of being an excellent hotel because of small little things. For example, the double toilet paper roll doesn't break on the same perforation on the upper tissue vs the lower tissue. Why? Probably a cheaper brand. Another example, the dispensary in the shower for shampoo, body wash etc is poorly designed and doesn't give you what you desire and gets stuck. Too bad. I do say, the staff are very good and reactive although need more training. A good hotel on its' way to excellence.

Hotel is beautiful, all redone inside; bed was so comfortable! Hotel staff was friendly! Checkout was at noon so that was a plus where most hotels it's at 11:00. Would stay here again without hesitation!

This hotel has a great location, in walking distance to museum campus and all public transport. It is clean and the price was right. But it could really use an update in the rooms and hallways. Wallpaper is peeling in the halls, rooms and hallways require cosmetic repairs and new paint. I would stay here again but there some tlc needed to make this a really great hotel.
