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...

I'm a resident of Saskatoon and have had the opportunity to watch The James Hotel open and flourish. It's located in the heart of downtown - right across the street from the absolutely beautiful South Saskatchewan River. Many of the rooms and balconies overlook the river, and in the winter it's right across from a beautiful outdoor skating rink. I've... More

Stayed multiple visits. Superlative service. The staff expresses genuine caring. Cannot speak highly enough of the staff. Thank you! Love the ambiance. Very upscale yet extremely de-stressing, relaxing and unwinding.

We look for a nice place to stay while attending my daughters graduation from U of S and were not disappointed. This small hotel has a nice upscale feel and vibe along with and excellent staff that are on top of everybody's needs. It's also within walking distance to all the restaurants and bars downtown. I highly recommend it and... More

The James is a first -class boutique hotel with a scenic location along the Saskatchewan river in downtown Saskatoon. We have stayed there many times and the James has never failed to impress for luxury, impeccable service, cleanliness and excellent breakfasts. Treat yourself to a river-side suite. You can sit out on your balcony and enjoy the view! There is... More

We arrived late Friday evening and we were greeted by courteous staff who quickly checked us in. We had booked a studio suite and from the minute we entered the door I was in love! The decor is chic with a touch of art deco in the desk, nightstands and then contemporary with the sectional, fixtures, coffee table, flooring and... More

This is a lovely hotel. The staff were welcoming and helpful from the moment I drove up to the front door. I was running late for a meeting so they parked my car (and recognized me on my return and whipped out my keys for me). The room was nicely laid out, making very good use of the space. Very... More

Stayed one night to attend a concert. Wish it had been longer. The river view from the balcony was beautiful. All decor and amenities were very nice. Great hot breakfast. Several Kcup options, more than just regular and decaf. An afghan to cover with while watching tv!

Probably one of the best hotels in Saskatoon. Right from the moment we walked in the door the staff were exceptional. The room was small but nicely laid out. The bed was awesome. We had a great view of the river. The free breakfast each morning was exceptional and again the staff were awesome.
