The James Chicago Hotel Hotels ReviewsAddress: 55 East Ontario, Corner of Rush and Ontario, Chicago, IL 60611-2727
This is a boutique hotel steps from Michigan Avenue and State Street! Rooms are large enough, efficiently designed and very clean and pretty quiet. Slamming doors cannot be helped. Beds are comfy, and the bar is well stocked. They are, however, spartan, and for $500 a night on the weekend, was looking for a prettier room. Plenty of towels, filtered…More
The website for the James has you thinking that this is going to be an above average place to stay, but the experience is somewhere below that.On the plus side, the location is terrific. So too was the manager on duty who upgraded our stay to a suite on the 17th floor, which was a very nice room. So,…More

I have stayed at the hotel for a business trip. Checked in and out very quickly. My main expectation was a good quality sleep in a clean and well furnished room. Totally satisfied.

This is our second stay here in the last few years. It is in a great location to many restaurants and shopping and not too far from the red line of the subway which makes it easy to get here from the airport on the train/metro lines. The rooms are simple but well designed. The common areas are looking a…More

The hot water took 15 min to run in the morning. For a boutique hotel it is disappointing to offer communal shampoo, conditioner. The carpet was worn in the room and the wall was dirty. The hallway was barely lit.Review collected in partnership with this hotel This business uses tools provided by TripAdvisor (or one of its official Review Collection Partners) to encourage and collect guest reviews, including this one.

I have stayed in a lot of places in Chicago, and a LOT of nice hotels around the world, but this was by far my favorite experience.
