You can only stay in so many ultra-chic boutique hotels, so many opulent mega-palaces, before you start yearning for something a little more familiar. What's wrong with something approximating home? There's a reason, after all, that you live there in the first place.
Enter The James Chicago Hotel, where rooms blend residential comfort with modern decor and the full array of high-tech gadgetry. You won't quite find home cooking at the on-site restaurant, David Burke's Primehouse, but you will find a daring take on the traditional Chicago steakhouse, where Surf and Turf Dumplings blend barbecue short ribs with lobster mousse.
The Spa by ASHA features three private rooms and treatments geared specifically to travelers, alongside the full menu of massages and facials. The internationally renowned cuisine, shopping, entertainment, and nightlife of Chicago's Magnificent Mile are just steps away.
