i was really hesitant about staying at this hotel, but it was the only hotel available for the night we were staying in saskatoon, and unfortunately i am proven right about it

cons:
-the receptionist was really weird, it isn't so much that she was overtly rude, but i've got the feeling that she didn't like us very much, and she speaks in a very quiet voice that i can barely hear what she's saying
-when we asked about parking, she said in a very very quiet voice that there is a parking lot but it's basically full. i think it's unacceptable these days to have no parking for your paying guests. luckily we arrived at 5.30pm and the roadside parking is free from 6pm till 9.30am, and we weren't going to stay past that time in the morning anyway
-the hotel is in continuous constant renovation by the looks of it, we were in second floor and the hallway was dark, wiring showing everywhere, renovation equipment everywhere, there were two boxes of martha stewart's sink cabinets, which unfortunately wasn't installed in our own bathroom
- instead we got a really old bathroom with old plumbing and dodgy paint
- our room is supposedly already renovated, but the decor is really quite crap still, to be honest, the room's quite small, the door is banged up and cannot be locked!
- i'm also really sensitive about dust and smells, the 5 minutes i was in my room, my throat started to itch and hurt. it smells musty & dusty. actually it starts to smell dusty as soon as I entered the elevator from the lobby

pros:
- bedding was clean, so at least i can sleep
- wifi, which is standard for hotels these days anyway
- close to shops & restaurants as it is in downtown saskatoon

i don't think they should mislead by saying that they're a boutique hotel. to me that's totally misleading. especially with the photos of the rooms shown on their website, saying that they are already renovated, etc.

Well, I am quite dismayed that you had such a terrible experience. As we were the last resort for you I'm glad you had a place to stay. As we state when checking in, we are under our last phase of renovating on the second floor for a state of the art heating and air conditioning environmentally green system. We have continually invested in our property and are on our last phase of renovations which will be done in 4 weeks. We offer discounts for stays on the second floor (rooms in a city thats full the price is under a 100 dollars). As you stated, you were on the second floor which all rooms that are in service have been freshly painted and ceiling raised 10 feet from 8 feet. The hallways are in a renovated state, not much we can do about that but make guests aware of it before they check in. There also was also plenty of parking for free on the Wed that you stayed but we had scheduled snow removal (as we got 10 inches of snow) from 7-9pm that night. As for the Boutique Hotel billing, we do consider ourselves a boutique hotel which we are a unique property with different size rooms and a very european feel and not like a cookie cut hotel experience. I wish you pleasant travels in the future and hope you find happiness at your next stay.

I attended a large conference in Saskatoon this week. Initially had the Delta Bessborough booked but since I couldn't get a flight out on Thursday due to the limited # available cancelled one night. Ended up getting a flight out Thursday but of course the room at the Delta was grabbed. I went on Tripadvisor, searched for availability and the Hotel Senator came up. Not only is this hotel closer to TCU Place, it is a gem! We are in room 218, which is a jacuzzi suite. It has a king bed in a nice sized bedroom, a small living room, full bath with the best water pressure I have seen in a shower in a long time, and a separate jacuzzi room. There are flat screen TV's in the bedroom and living room. Great towels, nice amenities and fluffy robes. Free wireless internet. Spotlessly clean, friendly staff and a very good restaurant (open 5 - 9), a wine bar with an excellent selection and a really good pub (I think they have over 40 beers on their list). The second floor is currently being renovated but it was not disruptive at all as the work stops before 5 pm. If you stay here before the renos are done be prepared for the hallway renos .. lots of wiring being replaced and the only lighting is quaint lamps on antique tables. The history and character of this hotel make it very appealing. Plus it is close to shopping and services. A cab to TCU Place is about $5.50 but it is also an easy walk. I'd definitely stay here again. Can't wait to see it when the renos are done.

Room Tip: Not sure if there is room service. The character of both the fine dining restaurant and the pub made us want to eat there. You can also get a bottle of wine from the wine bar to enjoy in your room. If you plan on sleeping in, you may want to ask what rooms are being affected by the renovations.

i travel quite often due to my job nature..... I must say the Hotel Senator is one of my worse lodging experiences ever. Staff is pretty friendly but.....First of all, parking space is very limited. My room has some moldy smell to it and the temperature of the shower flucuate (by lot) crazy making my stay very uncomfortable. Highly NOT recommended

This will be a short review but... My Fiance and I stayed there a couple years ago now. It was a great room! We got the jacuzzi suite and It was excellent! Very unique building, huge big king size bed and a romantic little jacuzzi. We had a great time. The bartender opened a bottle of wine for us and let us take it to our room. Great staff and perfect location for wondering around downtown. As well the bar on the main floor/lobby served good pub food and had good tunes and live music.
On the down side, the parking wasn't very convenient and it was a little loud if you like to sleep with a window open due to the bar letting the patrons out at closing time.

Other than that, all-around great weekend!

We will stay there again next time we're in Saskatoon.

Room Tip: I recommend the Jacuzzi Suite!

Rooms clean. Staff very polite. Rooms may seem small if thats important to you. Beds very comforatable. You can walk everywhere downtown from this spot as it is in the heart of downtown. Parking available for free. Perfect for 3 women down for shopping and the theatre!

Room Tip: DId not have any noise problems. There is a pub connected to the hotel but we didn't hear anything on the 2nd floor.
