Rooms at The James

The hotel’s 393 studios and suites take a fresh approach to art deco with clean lines and stylish furniture in blues, greens and whites to reflect the beach and ocean just outside. Comfort take priority in the platform beds, work or dining areas and modern furniture and the ocean views through the full-length windows are a pleasure to wake up to.
