BEWARE: As a journalist, I frequently stay in hotels for work and would consider The James, as a property, to be pleasant enough. I stayed there Nov. 18-19. But I recommended that you do not. The problem is the service and bogus charges reminiscent of the sketchiest Vegas resorts. The background: I do not smoke, period, and have accordingly never been charged a smoking fee — until I stayed here. Days after checking out I found a $550 charge on my credit card, roughly double the cost of a room. No attempt was made to alert me of this, much less explain what it was for. More disappointing still is that no one at the company even stepped up and responded to my own calls, voicemails and emails — first aimed just at answering the question, “Why?” I was only able to find out what this charge was ostensibly for by dialing the number for new reservations (no one picks up if your concern relates to “billing,” which is a red flag, while messages I left were ignored) and asking someone at the front desk. That employee then promptly transferred me to “a manager” who neither picked up the phone nor returned my call. You get the idea. In short, this property is in a good location and the rooms are serviceable. But the company that runs it does not provide service anywhere close to that of a true 4-star hotel. And it may well cost you. (UPDATE: In their response, the hotel claims I could just email to request the “data” pointing to why a smoke detector went off. But no smoke detector ever went off — and, predictably, emailing the provided address did not elicit a response.)

As of this moment, I would not recommend the property as I am expecting to receive formal excuses for trying to charge my account with a fraudulent US$500.00 + TAX for alleged smoking in the room. First and foremost, neither my husband nor myself are smokers, making it IMPOSSIBLE for us therefore to have smoked in the room. Additionally, the alleged smoking is said to have occurred as per the posting in the fine on 12/16 and we were out in the city since the morning until late after dinner. Lastly, the MOD, who didn't even introduce himself, and the front desk assistant just told us his first name was Ken, did not present his excuses, but rather treated us in a condescending way as if we had, in fact, violated the hotel's non-smoking policy. To finish up, even when I didn't pay for the fine as of today, both members of the staff informed me that this was an ongoing investigation. Anyway, if this situation is not rectified, I will not change my opinion regarding this property, where I had been planning to return to in the near future.
