We loved the central location of this hotel, and were impressed by the professionalism of the staff we met. The room styles are retro and decent in size. We did have a toilet flushing issue on the first evening but this was all sorted quickly. Our main bugbear would be the noise coming from outside. Of course, you expect plenty of street noise when you are in the middle of a city, but I don't expect to hear it seeping through the walls and windows when inside my hotel room. Where is the sound proofing?? Come on, The James - you can definitely do better on this one. For that reason, when returning to Chicago I would look for a hotel with a similar location to this one, but not The James again. A shame really, as everything else was great, including breakfast at The Primehouse next to the lobby.
