The James Hotel: Well worth it
I probably couldn't never had afforded it at the time, but this was a great place to stay. The rooms are fabulous, the steakhouse is awesome, and the staff is amazing.
My sister and I stayed there as part of a trip I had won. We had a four day spa trip.
We were treated like A-listers through out our whole stay. Staff members ...even the doormen remembered us and were always very helpful. We indulged at a spa just down the street, shopped on Michigan avenue and out at Clark and Belmont, went to a wine tasting and had an all arounf fabulous time.
The bar was great and the steakhouse was amazing. We were able to eat three meals there, and each was awesome. They even had a little business center we both used to print our boarding passes and check in the with rest of the world.
How can you not love the modern look, turn down service and the stick figure city scape?
