I stayed at the James on Saturday July 26th. The service was attentive, warm and thoughtful. I felt pampered by the staff. As a lone traveller I really appreciated this. Check in was quick, parking is just outside the main entrance, and my room was modern and clean. My view sucked as it was of air exchange units and a... More

My husband and I stayed here over the weekend for our anniversary, and it was pretty damn nice. And I know my last review said the best bed ever was at the Marriott, but I'll admit it here -- I was wrong. The best bed ever is here, at the James Hotel. I even tried to figure out if there... More

The James has set a new standard for this province. I had the smallest room that faces the river and it was gorgeous, trendy and clean. A tiny bathroom was the only drawback. I will be searching endlessly to try and buy those sheets. Everything outstanding and well thought out (tip of the hat to the designers, builders and owners)... More

Just got back from a week in Saskatoon and thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the James. Staff is very pleasant and helpful. Enjoyed the complimentary hot breakfast and the variety they offered. I also appreciate the complimentary Wi-Fi access, parking and bottled water. The location is perfect. I will bring my exercise gear the next time I am there. Can't... More

This hotel is a revamped apartment building that is very old and the tenants used to smoke in their rooms. Thus the old air handling system has smoke in the ducts that permeates the rooms. The rooms are newly renovated and nicely appointed but the smoke smell is still very noticeable The hotel faces Spadina on the rooms over looking... More

The James staff were fantastic from the moment we arrived. They truly know how to add a special touch to your experience as a guest! The hotel is clean, fresh, modern and comfortable. Our room was fantastic; bright, clean and huge with an amazing bed and luxurious bathroom. Breakfast in the morning featured tons of options and everything was fresh... More

This is not only the best hotel in Saskatoon but I wish there was a James in every city I go to. While the rooms are great, the service is outstanding. I have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world and the staff here are as good as you get anywhere. They clearly enjoy providing the best... More

This is a top notch, modern, luxury hotel leagues above the Bessborough. The rooms have everything needed and more: free wifi, in room coffee maker, free bottled water, comfortable bed, very clean furniture. Free full breakfast is included with the room price and it is superb, with eggs made to order, fresh fruits, yogurt, and gluten free choices. We have... More

Stayed here for business in July 2014 - staff service was incredible. The room had a beautiful view, luxurious amenities, and the bed sheet were HANDS DOWN the softest I have ever felt. I will definitely be returning here on future trips to Saskatoon.

We only stayed one night but I seriously wanted to steal the bedding so I could have that heavenly sleep many more nights. The room was completely spotless and I loved the fact that the floors were wood not carpet as it instantly made me feel I was not walking around on previous guests dirt. The bathroom was well appointed... More
