Finding a Hotel in Saskatoon
Not only is Saskatoon, Saskatchewan one of the country’s sunniest cities, it is also one of its most culturally sophisticated with plentiful performing arts, festivals and events. The area’s abundant hotels ensure that travellers from every destination will find a good night’s sleep after a busy day enjoying all the city has to offer. Visitors should note that in addition to the cost of the hotel room they will find a five per cent Provincial Sales Tax, five per cent Goods and Services Tax and a two per cent Destination Marketing Fee on their hotel bill.
Whether visitors are looking for family fun, culturally enriching events, diverse dining experiences or satisfying shopping opportunities, they will find it in Saskatoon’s exciting downtown core. The area is home to a number of museums and galleries, musicians and street vendors, several river trails, copious festivals and events, the Midtown Plaza and Kinsmen Park. With nearly half of Saskatoon’s hotel rooms also found downtown, visitors are bound to find accommodation suitable to their needs in this area. A number of downtown hotels are ideally located beside the Kiwanis Memorial Park, along the river on Spadina Crescent East, such as the Sheraton Cavalier.
