Fodor's Review

Sleek and contemporary, this boutique hotel has a prime location on Rush Street, the city's nightlife center, and offers comfortable rooms, many of them large, with platform beds and dark woods. In this trendy spot, alt-rock plays on the iPod-ready stereo system when you enter your room, and full-size bottles of vodka, whiskey, and rum are on hand. The slate-tile and marble bathrooms feature amenities from Harmonic by Intelligent Nutrients. David Burke's Primehouse restaurant and The Spa by Asha are both on-site.

The James Hotel Review

Unfortunately I haven't gotten a chance to be in the hotel yet. I had made a reservation for my anniversary but had mixed up the dates. After calling and fixing the issue I didn't worry about it when they charged my card. I assumed they just took payment ahead of time. I only found out they had charged for a no show after calling to add a day to the reservation. After calling 4-5 times I still have not gotten a solid response. Very upsetting
