Every year, Travel + Leisure magazine honors some of the greatest in the business with its prestigious “World’s Best” awards. These accolades shine the spotlight on readers’ favorite airlines, airports, cruise lines, cities, islands, and—of course—hotels. When it comes to hotels, voters rate us based on factors like service, facilities, location, value, and food.

At The James, we pride ourselves on giving our guests intuitive service in casually sophisticated hotels that promote the art, culture and communities around us. With little touches like eco-friendly pillows, complimentary bicycles, personalized in-room playlists, and access to artisanal cocktails and meals from award-winning chefs, we want to make your stay with us memorable. We’re honored that The James New York and The James Chicago are included in this year’s World’s Best Awards.
