My first trip ever to Saskatoon and my business put me up at the Radisson in the downtown core.
-My corner room on the 15th floor had a lovely unobstructed view overlooking the river and was very quiet.
-The bed is VERY comfortable and the room is relatively small but well laid out and clean.
-Excellent service staff
-A better than usual hotel restaurant, at least for my low to mid-range hotel experiences on my business travels. I am unaccustomed to being put up at the Ritz.
-Excellent location pretty much right on the river in the core of downtown Saskatoon.
-As is typical with many Radisson Hotels, this is a large and sprawling conference centre establishment. Great for conferences, not so great if you are looking for the intimate and personal feel of a boutique hotel. Don't count on the staff at the front desk to be greeting you by name.
-during my stay, there was an abundance of conferences happening (or at least one very large one) and the lobby and restaurant were consistently noisy and packed. Perhaps as a result of this, there were considerable difficulties with the elevator and waits were lengthy. One morning during my four day stay, I along with another guest waited for 12 minutes for an elevator on the fifteenth floor (that's a long time). It didn't come. We opted to take the stairs as we were both late. Did the stairs take us to the lobby? No. They led on the main floor to a door that said "fire exit only alarm will sound." So backtracked we did to the conference centre level. Did it come out on the conference centre? Yes but, into the staff kitchen. This is ridiculous. Why can't there be a normal set of stairs that opens to the expected public areas? Tonight, more problems with the elevator. It consistently timed out.
-As with all hotels, I wish they would also include a plain old cheap kettle in the room. Like many people these days I am a tea drinker. I travel with my own tea, and using the 'coffee makers' to boil water invariably results in tea that tastes like coffee. Not good.
-For my 5'1" frame, the sink in the bathroom is curiously high. Not too much counter space in the bathroom either, which on the whole does NOT have the most practical design.
-Why is it that most low-mid range hotels have THE MOST HIDEOUSLY CARPET EVER?
-The trek to the fitness centre is long and impersonal.
