Marathon Hotels :: Sweatin' in Style at The James Chicago
Planning on running your butt off in the Chicago Marathon on October 12 and still looking for a good hotel deal? If you have proof of race registration, then The James Hotel may just be what the (foot) doctor ordered.
During race weekend, runners who stay at The James and clue the concierge in to their participation will receive complimentary "Congrats" amenities. If free goodies like Aveda foot relief cream, Smart Water, Advil, bandages, ice baths on request (!) and a Vitamin Water cocktail don't soothe your sore muscles, then perhaps you should check out the VIP runners-only stretch room.
Of course The James can't have you ordering regular room service before the race either; they've designed a special energy-packed breakfast -- with "Tropical Tundra" smoothies and more -- to get you up and on your feet in record time.
Rates for Marathon weekend are looking good: starting at $379, you can sleep right off of Michigan Avenue in one of our favorite urban properties and get the free stuff mentioned above.
Good Luck to the runners, and don't tipple too much at the tempting JBar.
