    Best location for walking to many restaurants and shopping. We were able to park our car and walk everywhere. The staff was very knowledgeable of directions. The room is extremely spacious. The workout room was very clean and the machines all had tv's on them.More

    As of 2 weeks ago, they still offer it. We went to use the pool next door but it's REALLY small. None of us ended up using it because of the size.

    The James is about a mile from the State/Lake stop on orange line. Or you could connect to Red line and get off on Grand stop. The James is 1-2 blocks from the Grand station.
