Planning the Perfect Shopping Trip from Your Saskatoon Hotel

Staying at a hotel in Saskatoon provides a great base to get out and explore the city’s many shopping malls.

Your credit card balance is under control? Check. You’ve got your list of shopping needs, wants and maybes prioritized? Check. You’ve got your hotel in Saskatoon all lined up? Check. All systems are GO for some retail therapy in the city!

Before you rush out on a wild shopping spree, we’ve compiled a list of tips that we think you’ll find helpful. After all, Saskatoon has quietly established itself as one of the prime shopping destinations in the Prairie provinces, so it’s important to pace yourself. Our city has it all:

  • Modern shopping malls
  • Big box stores
  • One-of-a-kind boutique shops

Fuel up Before You Go

We’re not talking about your car here. We’re talking about you! Shopping malls are big places, and if you want to make it through the day, it’s a good idea to eat a hearty breakfast.

Many hotels near the airport offer a complimentary hot continental breakfast, so why not take advantage? It means you’ll have more money to spend on your shopping excursion.

Strategize Your Route

With six shopping malls scattered across the city, many of which feature more than 100 stores, it’s essential to plan ahead. For instance, for visitors staying at hotels near the SaskTel Centre, you might want to start with somewhere close, like the Lawson Heights Mall, and work your way out.

Size Matters

If you decide to splurge on a new set of designer luggage because your suitcase won’t last another trip, you really don’t want to be lugging that across Saskatoon. This goes for any heavy or cumbersome items you purchase along the way.

Instead, note those larger items and circle back for them later. Besides, you might just find that same item for cheaper at a different mall.

Post-shopping Relaxation at your Saskatoon Hotel

With your shopping session complete, it’s time to head back to your hotel for a bit of R ‘n’ R, because you’ve earned it. You can unload your bags in the room and head down to the pool for a relaxing dip, or simply soak in the jetted hot tub and soothe your feet and muscles after a busy, yet rewarding, day.

Other Fun Outings in Saskatoon

If you’re in the city for several nights, there’s more to do that just shop. Many hotels in Saskatoon offer value-added packages to make your stay more entertaining. For instance, the Comfort Suites Saskatoon has packages for:

  • Family Fun Night
  • Romantic Getaway
  • Rock n Stay
  • Spirit of the Prairies
