We found the James through samatha brown and the travel channel. We booked a deluxe king but were given a double studio, so our initial check in wasn't smooth, we had to move. The concierge wasn't extremely helpful with suggestions and when I asked for any coupons she dug up a couple but when I looked closely, they expired in 2010. If you valet, don't leave anything in your car, we waited 45 min for a pair of shoes. We would have gone to the car ourselves but were told we could not. On the positive, book the insider promotion, half rate valet parking and a $50 resturant voucher. The room was older but remodeled, I found the bed very comfortable, very nice bedding. The large bottles of bath amenities ( shampoo, conditioner etc) are in a locked wall caddy. I didn't really want to use used products so I obtained personal size bottles from the cleaning staff. Room service was good, overpriced as with any nicer hotel. The courtesy ride from the James to one of the attractions was a nice bonus. All of the bellman were very friendly and helpful upon checkin and checkout.
