Friends, Festivities, Fitness, and Fulfillment at the TownePlace Suites by Marriott

Posted By Shanda Doerksen , January 04, 2024
Being a full-time working mom to two adorable little ones, my schedule is often hectic. Between hockey practices, baseball practices, birthday parties, and various adventures, it's easy to forget to carve out some time for ourselves. That's why I recently treated myself to a staycation at TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Saskatoon. Nestled in the heart of the city, this cozy haven became my home away from home for a night! Join me as I share the highlights of my much-needed mom retreat and why TownePlace Suites became the perfect backdrop for some well-deserved R&R.

In Suite Kitchenettes & NetFlix - Oh my! 


From the moment you step into the suite, a sense of home immediately takes over. The spacious and well designed rooms at TownePlace Suites provide a cozy sanctuary, making it easy to sit back and relax.. The modern amenities, kitchenettes, Netflix, complimentary breakfast, 24-hour fitness center, and heated saltwater pool are all features that I enjoyed the most. 

Besties and Pizza- Say No More! 

I made plans with some of my best friends, who I haven’t caught up with in a while and invited them over to spend the evening with me. While I waited for them, I settled into my room and immediately pressed play on the SmartTV, indulging in my favorite Netflix shows. Upon their arrival, we discussed what our plans were for the evening, and where we wanted to eat at. After much discussion (we all have our culinary favorites ? ), we thought, hey, why don’t we just order in some Una Pizza & Wine. So we did just that! It was incredibly delicious, and of course we could relax in our sweatpants and just chill! 

Complimentary Deluxe Breakfast, 24 Hour Fitness Centre 

In the morning, I went down to the lobby and enjoyed their deluxe complimentary breakfast, which is buffet style, so there is no shortage of options. Hot oatmeal, cereal, toast, yogurt, fruit, bagels, muffins….you name it! They also offer gluten free options, which is a nice option if you are on a gluten free diet. After breakfast, I geared up for the 24 hour fitness centre, and got my workout in the for the day. Their fitness centre offers ellipticals, treadmill, recumbent bike, free weights, benches, yoga mats, risers and a hydration station. It is everything you need to get your daily sweat on!

Heated Indoor Salt Water Pool

Last but certainly not least, I HAD to check out their indoor heated saltwater pool. The pool area comes with large windows, a seating area, and full change rooms. You instantly feel relaxed when you walk in and hear the gentle humming of the pool area. It was an incredible way to complete my stay at the TownePlace Suites by Marriott. 

All of this AND you can BBQ? 

Overall, this hotel offers excellent hospitality, it provides unique features such as their extended stay option, apartment style hotel, guest laundry, their kitchenettes and the option to fire up the Weber BBQ Grill on their large outdoor patio, which I think would be a great idea for socializing and team building. This hotel really does have it all (sports teams take note!)!
