Hotel at a Glance: The James Chicago

The James Chicago gets a lot of attention: it was voted 1 of Chicago’s top 10 hotels in Travel + Leisure’s 2016 World’s Best Awards, and Eater Chicago called its Primehouse restaurant one of the best steak houses in the city. In May 2017, the 4.5-star hotel debuted an attention-grabbing new lobby with stylish furniture and contemporary art.

  • Distance from the Magnificent Mile: one block
  • In-room amenities include free WiFi and purified water.
  • Worth the wait: Primehouse’s award-winning steaks are aged 30–75 days in a room lined with himalayan salt.
  • Signature drink: the James, which combines raspberry vodka with elderflower liqueur and fresh lime
  • 24-hour fitness center: There are 10 cardio machines with individual TVs and 25 pieces of strength-training equipment.
  • Best way to relax: with an Aveda aromatherapy massage at the spa
  • More time for sightseeing: Checkout is at 2 p.m.

Chicago’s Magnificent Mile: Upscale Boutiques and Historic Architecture

On Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, landmark skyscrapers such as the John Hancock Center and the Wrigley Building tower over the city’s liveliest retail corridor. In total, this stretch of high-end real estate houses some 460 stores, ranging from exclusive designers such as Armani and Chanel to beloved brands including Apple, American Girl, and Gap. Double-decker buses and horse-drawn carriages circle the Chicago Water Tower, a limestone icon that survived the Great Chicago Fire, and droves of shoppers navigate eight levels of boutiques and cafés at the nearby Water Tower Place.

Lake Shore Drive runs two blocks east of Michigan Avenue. Travel + Leisure called this stretch “the greatest architecture road on earth” thanks to the superstar skyscrapers lined up along the lakefront. Looming above them all, of course, is the Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower and the tallest building in North America. Runners and cyclists travel the adjoining Lakefront Trail throughout the year. A mile and a half north, crowds gather at North Avenue Beach during the summer to people watch, play volleyball, and listen to live music at beachfront bars. You can get to the beach (and practically anywhere else in the city) using Chicago’s extensive public transportation system.
