Hotel Saskatchewan, Regina
The Hotel Saskatchewan is one of the former Canadian Pacific (CP) grand hotels, opened 1927, during the heyday of its passenger train service. Today the hotel falls under the ownership of Radisson Hotels.
The outside façade of the hotel has the appearance of that era when designers went for a simpler design compared with the elaborate chateau-style designs that previously flourished across North America.
But inside you will find 224 rooms of exquisite Victorian style luxury. The price for a double occupancy room starts at CAD 207 (£126).
The Hotel Saskatchewan has three rooms for fine dining. One is simply named The Dining Room. The other two are the Victoria Tea Room and the Monarch Lounge. Guests can enjoy light snacks to fine cuisine throughout the day.
Other hotel services and facilities include a barber shop, spa, whirlpool, sauna and steam room, and fitness centre.
Today, there is no passenger rail service running through Regina. The closest VIA rail stations are in Saskatoon (258 km away) or Melville (146 km away). However, the hotel is only 10 minutes away from the airport.
