The James Hotel advertises itself as a boutique hotel; while the priciest hotel in Saskatoon, its price point is in line with, or better than, what I have paid in other urban centres. The location is excellent, if you want to be downtown, as it is across the street from the river park which is a tremendous feature of the... More

My boyfriend and I greatly enjoyed our time at James. We did have some trouble finding it though, as the entrance is a little tucked away. The bed was absolutely AMAZING. Extremely soft sheets and I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud. I miss that bed...just wonderful. Our stay came with free breakfast, which was superb! I loved... More

This was our first stay at The James Hotel and it started off with staff running to the front doors to open them for us to a fabulous turn down service with treats and an awesome bed with butter like sheets. We had the breakfast in the morning which was an added value and very, very good. We were reminded... More

My wife and I live in downtown Saskatoon, and feel that the food service in the lounge is a hidden gem in our city. We've had a meal in the lounge on four occasions. The menu is always interesting, with several single plate meal options. The wine list is varied and we've always been able to order a nice bottle... More

This is the only place I ever want to stay in Saskatoon. The hotel staff are, without exception, attentive, pleasant and happy to be of assistance. The rooms are exceptionally well thought out, spotlessly clean and well appointed. Most comfortable beds you will ever sleep in. No crunchy hotel sheets here - gorgeously soft. Breakfast changes daily and the choices... More

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
