It seems like the Rewards Canada family is always staying at Westin or Four Points hotels and can't recall the last time we actually stayed at SPG's Sheraton brand so we were excited to try the brand again.
We arrived at the hotel around 1pm and our room was ready for early check in. Being an SPG Gold Elite member we were offered a suite for our stay but as is usually painful for families, suites in many hotels like this one only have one bed and a pullout. Fine for families with little kids but my kids are getting older and growing like weeds so a double pullout couch just doesn't cut it. Instead we stayed with our originally booked two queens room but were provided the room on the 8th floor which is the club lounge floor that came with access to the Club Lounge.
Here are pics of the room we got on the 8th floor:

Despite the room and service being great overall the highlights of the stay were the Club Lounge and the of course the water park! The food in the lounge was very good overall with decent hors d'oeuvres and offered great hot foods for breakfast as well. Its nice having access to the lounge, especially for breakfast. The service from the lounge attendants was great and the overall atmosphere of the lounge was amazing. Here are some pics from of the lounge and some of the food offerings:
If your travels take you to Saskatoon this is definitely one of the places that should be on your list to stay at. I know the hotel books up quite often especially on Friday and Saturday (my wife wanted to stay here last year but it was full so she stayed next door at the Delta Bessborough) so be sure to book early if you know you are off to Saskatoon. And the pricing isn't that bad during slower periods, we stayed on a Sunday/Monday and the hotel was under $150 per night.
Have you stayed at the Sheraton Cavalier Saskatoon? What are your thoughts of the hotel?
