Going to visit friends this trip and wanted a nice place in Saskatoon to stay with the hubby. Being Saskatoon - the choices are limited. We had stayed at the Sheraton before and it was small, loud but the location was great. Via Tripadvisor, many people raved about the James Hotel - and their feedback were right on!!
Note that the hotel is on the right side of the Sheraton Hotel on Spadina (where the balconies are) - as we got a little confused.
The service was spectacular!! We got greeted by a sweet lady named Kecia who sincerely was happy to see us! We stayed in the King Suite - and I definitely recommend this suite!
It faces the river, you get a balcony - AND you have a huge comfy king bed and a lounging area with a super comfy couch. It was boutique galore! On the bed was a welcome card and a cute little luggage tag gift!
We even got to check in quite early, at almost 1pm. By 6pm, we got chocolate strawberries delivered to our door - and they were divine. Not sure why we got them - but I was not complaining!!
We also ordered some room service (the room was so cozy that we didn't want to leave!) - and the food was not too bad. Wasn't the best - but it arrived within 20 minutes. We had Prime Rib Dip & Fries (YUMMM) and French Onion Soup which wasn't as yum. Totalled $37 so a little on the high side - which is expected!
The next morning - hubby went to get the free breakfast! We were expecting Holiday Inn - however there was a chef making fresh yummy waffles - and there was bacon, sausage, fresh hashbrowns (not the frozen ones) and freshly squeezed OJ!! Pretty impressive.
So when you look at the price we paid at $250 - it was wayyy worth it! You can't beat the location, the comfort (the beds and pillow were soooo comfortable), the gorgeous rooms and the high quality soaps (occitane) etc - topped with top notch service! Can't go wrong - especially if you want to treat yourself to a relaxing time away!
Also I noticed someone complained about the bathroom - but I did not find it small at all! It had a great soaker tub, a sink with plenty of counter space and yet again, gorgeously decorated!
It felt like home (a real nice home) with royalty treatment! Can't beat that!
