Where to stay in Saskatoon

The west bank of the South Saskatchewan River serves as the most popular place to stay in Saskatoon. Along the curving riverside route of Spadina Crescent, you can choose from a selection of mid-range to luxury hotels, most of which offer swimming pools to accompany their river views. The two main thoroughfares out of town--Route 14 to the west and Route 11 to the north--offer an abundance of standard motels and inns, with accommodations in the north also ensuring proximity to the city's airport.
