Fodor's Review

It pays to be early at this spa on the lower level of the James Hotel so that you have time to take advantage of the complimentary preservice aromatherapy foot bath in the darkened lounge; a therapist will also tuck a heated pillow behind your neck and massage your feet and calves with a scrub of walnut, lavender, and herbal extracts. It may feel like a shame to leave for the actual treatments, but services that include Aveda plant-based facials, body wraps, and massages will only up your relaxation factor. Special services catering to moms-to-be include a hydrating belly treatment. There are massages and facials designed exclusively for men, too, plus a Himalayan rejuvenation treatment that claims to boost your immune system during the change of seasons.
