when we go to visit friends and family in Saskatoon we always stay at the James. Its stylish and modern. The lounge is very good the food amazing . what we really love about the hotel is the friendly warm service we receive. The day after we were married we had a party with family and friends in the penthouse , it was perfect !!

Room Tip: we like the extended stay room as it has a full size fridge and kitchenette.

Wonderful stay, lovely staff and great breakfast. The rooms are lovely, spacious and with a beautiful balcony facing the river. The only downfall is that people have not taken care when staying in the rooms as they look quite worn in some areas and yet I believe the hotel is only around a year old. Overall, very happy with our stay.

We stayed here with our two children (3.5 and 7 months) as a stop on our way to Winnipeg. We chose the 2 bdrm suite, which had a wonderful view of the river. The suite was clean, and extremely spacious. (The master bathroom has a huge glass enclosed shower, huge soaker tub, and plenty of floor space). We also had more than enough room in our master suite to put our infants playpen where he would be sleeping). The kitchen had a dishwasher, small fridge, sink, island, etc. The chef appointed breakfast was great as well, and the service was wonderful.

Breakfast wasn't exactly as advertised but still good. The dining room and ajoining washroom also could have been cleanier. Other than that the rooms were spotless. The staff friendly and everything from the king size beds to the couches were soft and luxurious. I was impressed overall.

I was surprised by my significant other to stay at the James for my birthday last week. The hotel is perfectly located with a stunning view of the river. The decor is beyond impressive and the staff is consistently helpful and polite. The space is comfortably premium. Not so formal that it is intimidating. Breakfast was beyond our expectations as well! We are proud to have The James as a signature hotel here in Saskatoon!

Room Tip: Upgrade to river view - you can't beat it!

Thank you for the wonderful stay at The James. Perfect location and ambience for a quick family visit. The staff were friendly yet efficient. The bar and fireplace wonderful on a chilly evening and the breakfast excellent.
Highly recommended.

We had our Xmas party @ The James and I had to write a few words about our experience. The hotel itself is beautifully decorated and the staff are amazing! We rented the penthouse suite which has stunning views of the riverbank. The staff"s attention to detail impresses me the most-they really seem to care about the guests having a wonderful experience.Our meal was one of the best I have ever had. Can't say enough good things about our experience! Will definately be back again soon!

Room Tip: The penthouse is worth the experience!!
