I traveled to Saskatoon for business and decided to try The James Hotel. I am a frequent traveler and was extremely impressed with this hotel. The rooms are a good size, lovely and modern, and everything is high end. There are lots of nice touches like the small pastry with turndown service, L'Occitane toiletries, thick towels and an exceptionally comfortable... More

After driving 270 KM from Swift Current it was great to pull into the "free" parking at The James Hotel in Saskatoon. This was my first time at The James as all the other downtown hotels were booked. The hotel was exactly as shown on their website. High end from the entrance to my room. The room was very modern... More

The James was truly a lovely hotel experience. All the staff were accommodating and personable. The breakfast each morning had so much choice and the quality of food was outstanding. The rooms were quiet, well equipped, and beautifully appointed.

We stayed at The James for New Years Eve 2015, as a "staycation". We have previously travelled away for the new year but circumstances kept us in our home city. I had heard many good things about The James, and as our children are adults now and there was no need for a pool or water slides, we decided to... More

We stayed here for four nights in a one bedroom suite overlooking the South Saskatchewan River. Check in was fast and efficient. Restrictions on hotel services for Christmas Day and Boxing Day were explained to us, and hotel amenities. We enjoyed a spacious suite featuring a separate bedroom with TV, a sitting area with L-shaped sofa, TV, desk and chair,... More

Great boutique hotel! I travel about once a year to Saskatoon for business and my last stay (and for sure my next) was at the James Hotel. The room was nice, clean, modern and well laid out. Cocktails in their lounge were nice and the service was great. Opted for room service for dinner that evening and enjoyed the steak... More

Stayed here 2 nights and had a lovely suite on the 8th floor. Lots of nice touches in the room. Keurig coffee maker, bed very comfortable and turn down service with bed time treats. The included breakfast was very good with a chef making what eggs (eggs benedict one morning) or pancakes. I did not use the lounge/bar but looked... More

The James Hotel is now my favourite hotel in Saskatoon. Their room rates and great location are comparable with their competition, yet their service and amenities are a cut above. The service is excellent, we even received desserts delivered to our room when we first arrived as a welcome gift! The staff was helpful and friendly, the rooms were modern... More

Horrible hotel. Don't be fooled by the stylish facade and good reviews. You will pay through the nose for an experience that is worse than a roach motel. Specifically, I couldn't even use my room on the 9th floor because of a basic problem with the room. Travelers beware!

We stayed here 2 night in October. Picked a river view room and was not disappointed! View was awesome! As well, the bed was super comfortable and room room was very clean. We will definitely stay again.
