The James is a perfect hotel for a getaway that will have you remembering your stay and wanting to come back again. The service begins with a pleasant welcome at the door and a service level comparable to the best hotels wordwide. The rooms are spacious and luxury is what this property is all about. The view from the balcony...

This is a lovely boutique hotel, located close to the river and various restaurants. The hallways may be narrow and the bathrooms may be small, but the bed...the bed is amazingly luxurious (and you can purchase the bedding)! Breakfast was included with the room and the breakfast area is great, with a generous selection of hot and cold items to...

A small boutique hotel. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Rooms are lovely, and the bed top notch. Breakfast was just great. Would gladly stay here again. Also right next to the river and park, which makes for a nice walk.

My wife and I have enjoyed two "stay-cations" here. It is only forty minutes from home, but it is a beautiful getaway for date night in Saskatoon. It is extremely quiet and comfortable. Very clean. The service is top notch. The free breakfast in the morning is great!

Stayed here for a stay -cation in Saskatoon. WOW... The whole stay was better than expected. I booked a king room with city view and was upgraded to a one bedroom suite with city view. What a pleasant surprise on checking in, and they were fully booked for the evening. The room was spacious, the balcony had chairs so sat...

I would highly recommend staying at this amazing boutique hotel in Saskatoon. It is a great place for a weekend away either to celebrate an anniversary or even a fun girls trip to the city!

Would have loved to have stayed at your hotel, but personally thanks to your non- accommodating front desk we went and stay at the Park Town hotel.

I travel on a regular basis to Saskatoon for business and have been staying at the James for a few years now. This definitely feels like a home away from home. The rooms are spacious and comfortable.
