Editorial Review of James Hotel

Cuddle up on mod comfort at the James.
The James Hotel, created by Stephen Hansen (B.R. Guest Restaurants), Danny Errico (Equinox gyms) and Brad Wilson (W Hotel), is designed to make your stay comfortable. So comfy, in fact, that you might want to move in. "Residential comfort with state-of-the-art technology" is the name of the stay at this modern spot, located just steps off the Magnificent Mile.

If you decide to do Chicago the James way, expect to shell out $319-$380 a night for king or double-bed guest rooms, $349-$409 a night for one of 52 studios or $419-$479 a night for a one bedroom apartment, complete with living room, dining room and king-size bed. Regardless of your choice, you'll find a 42-inch plasma screen TV, 300-thread count sheets, a state-of-the-art stereo system with an iPod dock and designer furniture beyond your door.

On-site eateries include David Burke's Primehouse, a sleek, contemporary space with a menu created by the celebrity chef, and the hotel lobby's swanky J-Bar, a posh martini destination.

To work off the David Burke calories, guests make use of a 2,000-square-foot fitness center that offers classes, one-on-one training appointments and an indulgent spa. A 24-hour concierge service offers access to Chicago's "it" shows, restaurants, clubs and museums.
