We just spent three nights in this little gem downtown Saskatoon. The front desk people were pleasant , helpful and eager to please. We got a suite facing the river, it was spacious and very nice with a balcony . The breakfast is included and is excellent . I have nothing bad to say about this hotel and would recommend... More

I couldn't possibly praise this hotel any more highly. I stayed here for three nights before a friend's wedding and the staff at the James went above and beyond to help us several times. Whether it was printing things off for us at 11.00pm or rushing around to get us a table cloth to use at the wedding (even thought... More

We heard the James was an excellent place to stay and people are right. The Concierge was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and recently renovated. The bed was Exceptionally comfy. Only draw back is that its a little pricy. Breakfast is also provided and it was very good. Good selection of fruits, omelets, and even crepes. Overall,... More

We have travelled throughout Canada and the US and the James Hotel now ranks as the best we've ever stayed at. The service is second to none, the rooms excellent, the best sleep ever. Breakfast is offered with some rooms and you won't find anything comparable in terms of quality...Highly recommend to anyone travelling to Saskatoon.

My husband and I LOVE The James. We choose it for a mini vacations when we need to get away for a night or 2. We always get a river view as high up as possible. Aaah that view. Morning coffee on the balcony, just amazing. Other things we love are the nice modern and impeccably clean rooms. That deep... More

Stayed back in March for one night. Room was very nice, comfortable and roomy. The breakfast was outstanding and the staff service level was excellent. I Would highly recommend for business or leisure.

Not only do you get outstanding 5 star service, the rooms were breathtaking, the view amazing. We were there for a wedding, the bride and groom hosted a get together the night before in the penthouse and also a brunch on the Sunday. Turn down service, very clean and very quiet. Complimentary breakfast was outstanding as was the food at... More

Our room faced the river, nice balcony. Excellent breakfast. Excellent attention by staff at all levels. Entertainment during Jazz Festival was great. Nice surprise in a town with very ordinary hotels.

Stayed at the James on business for 3 nights. From the moment we arrived we felt taken care of. From the front desk staff to housekeeping to the staff at breakfast, it is obvious that customer service is a top priority. Rooms come with some nice touches from the toiletries, a robe, complimentary bottled water and the bedside treats you... More

Wow! I have had the privilege to stay in many great hotels, and The James is probably topping the list right now! Small but cozy, extremely well located, the bed might just be the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, the sheets were definitely the softest I have ever slept in and I'm stopping by the front desk...
