To optimize your chances of negotiating that big deal while on the road, the James has on offer something called The Office, which is a work space that can accommodate up to six people, and is equipped with all the amenities you’ll need to always be closing. Guests using The Office may also order AV equipment, flip charts, and laptop computers, or take advantage of The James’ full in-room dining menu catered by the adjoining David Burke’s Primehouse. The steakhouse has its own 2,500-pound bull nicknamed “Prime,” due to his capacity to sire offspring that achieve the coveted USDA quality grade of prime, which less than three percent of the 35 million head of animals graded annually in the United States achieve. Be sure to avoid the crowd at the Primehouse bar, which often spills into the lobby. That is, until you get all your work done. Once that happens by all means, get wasted.
