Two things that are essential to the enjoyment and enlightenment of life: art and nature. The Alt Hotel in Saskatoon wants to make it easy for you to enjoy both of these since we are so blessed to have them thriving in our city. Whether you are feeling introspective and open-minded, or energetic and in desperate need of exercise (like me!), consider these packages that will fill your heart, mind, and lungs with what you crave!

Art and the Alt

Say THAT five times fast! Although it is a tongue-twister, there is nothing complicated about booking this package. The Alt wants you to partake of world-class art during your stay, and the Remai Modern art museum is just steps away from the hotel. A visit to Remai will open your mind to so many perspectives and voices. Between the three galleries, you’ll experience the distinct and essential Indigenous perspective, modern and revered international artists, and the world’s largest collection of Picasso linocuts. If you find you are so inspired you can’t contain it, make your way to the art studio and get it all down on paper! There is so much to see and do, you might want to break up your visit by having lunch at Living Sky Café just down the street on 3rd Avenue South, included in this package.

When you check in the Alt, you’ll notice they love art just as much as you do and have allowed our surroundings to inspire their selections. Just past the lobby, you’ll find 47 photographs hanging on the walls over two walls of quintessential prairie scenes.
