The James has become our place to stay when in Saskatoon. The staff are friendly, accommodating and on most occasions call you by name from arrival until departure. There is always an extra effort made to ensure a great stay. The lounge provides a relaxing quiet atmosphere with very friendly staff. The breakfast served on the second floor is always good. From being greeted by the chef to the quality of food. Rooms are neat and tidy. The king size beds with high thread count sheets provide for true comfort. We always look forward to our next stay at "The James." Roger M

Room Tip: The River View is amazing.

I recently stayed at the James Hotel in Saskatoon , Sk . From the first steps in the door we knew it would be a good experience . The doorman held open the door , the checkin with a very friendly clerk was quick and efficient and the lobby was very clean . We were greeted in our room with a card from the manager welcoming us and a chocolate sucker with it . Our room was a river view , which you could see from a balcony in the sitting area or laying in a extremely comfortable king size bed . On our bedside table were 2 delicious little cupcakes for bedtime . The bathroom was spotless , the toiletries very high quality and the bath towels were bath sheets . The room also has a Keurig coffee machine for a fresh morning Joe . We spent the evening in the quaint lounge downstairs where the service was top notch . Great Stay !

The James is a small hotel in a small city, but a nonetheless an inviting place to stay.

The room I had felt almost like an apartment flat, but the use of space was not optimal. There is a wide entrance hall and a full-sized living room with porch. But the bedroom is a bit tight on space, with the large and comfortable bed taking up 85% of the area. Bathroom was fine, with Occitanne lemon verbena amenities. (Personally, far from my favourite.)

During my stay, housekeeping committed an error regarding a request I had made. When this was brought to the attention of the front desk, they were terribly sorry, and tried any which way to compensate me for the mix up. After trying one thing after another, they finally found a way to make it up to me on the third attempt. While I was not terribly pleased with the error, the way management tried to make things better was quite endearing, and could only be found at a small boutique hotel like this one.

The James is located on the banks of the South Saskatchewan River which offers very nice views from the room I stayed in. Although the cold temperatures didn’t allow me to stay outside for too long, the riverside park would look to be a nice place for a stroll during the spring and summer. During the winter, the lobby’s fireplace is a much more snug place to spend free time.

The staff and facility are second to none. From the time you arrive until you have your breakfast in the morning was a great experience. The rooms are spacious with lots of natural light and the bathrooms are great. The beds are the best I have slept on and the view of the river is great!

Room Tip: Depending on your requirements the studio with a river view is a great room.

Recently stayed at The James and had such a pleasant experience from the minute the I arrived at the beautiful hotel. The bellamn held the door open for me as I walked in to check in, was greeted by 2 front desk staff- both sooooo friendly. Visited the lounge and had amazing cocktails that the bartender made with fresh squeezed fruit juices and rose water. Breakfast was divine and was chef attended, not just some muffins and fruit type deal-io. Amazing staff makes this hotel such a rare find in this growing city of Saskatoon!!!

Room Tip: River view is worth it! All suites have balconies to make the rooms that much more enjoyable.
