The staff make this place come alive. There is an incredible amount of attention paid to detail and everyone just does their absolute best to make guests as comfortable as possible. The breakfast was great, too. We will definitely return. Thanks to all staff for making this such a memorable stay in Saskatoon!

I selected the James for its location and view of the river and was not disappointed. Very nice high end accomodations, including a balcony, were complemented by cheerful, excellent service. In my view, the free breakfast compares favourably with similar offerings from other hotels. Of course mini-bar is very expensive (no surprise), but room service was not overly so, and... More

My husband and I wanted to celebrate our anniversary by trying out the James Hotel. We loved everything about it- from the service to the location. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We had a great sleep and then a great breakfast included in the price. We would definitely recommend

My husband and I just spent 2 nights at this hotel during our first visit to Saskatoon. It was very well located, across the road from a great park. We were able to walk to all places we visited. Parking was complimentary as was the wi-fi and breakfast. Breakfast was an attended service, much like a restaurant, with expectations of... More

One of the few boutique hotels in Saskatoon, the James is situated in a lovely location by the river. The rooms are beautiful, the deep tub blissful. Staff always nice and ready to help. However, BREAKFAST IS SHAMEFUL. We have been here twice, and both times left horrified that a luxury hotel would dare underperform like that on breakfast. The... 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
