Delta Bessborough, Saskatoon

Delta Bessborough, Saskatoon (must see)

The Delta Bessborough hotel is a three star (Forbes Travel Rating), ten-story hotel located in downtown Saskatoon. The hotel is a historical landmark in Saskatoon and is known for its castle-like appearance. The hotel was built by the Canadian National Railway from 1928 to 1932 and is designed in the same Château-style as many of Canada's other railway hotels. Although it is still referred to as "The Bessborough Hotel" today, many people have adopted an abbreviated form, known as "The Bess" (pronounced 'Bez'). The landmark provides a picturesque eastern terminating vista for Saskatoon's 21st Street East and is also a view terminus on Spadina Crescent from points south of the hotel.

The Delta Bessborough Hotel has 225 guest rooms, numerous meeting facilities and function rooms, two restaurants, a lounge, a pool, a fitness facility and 5 acres (20,000 m2) of private waterfront gardens backing onto the river in downtown Saskatoon. The gardens are used to host large functions - they are commonly used for weddings, business barbecues, retirement parties, concerts, and as a venue for the Sasktel Saskatchewan Jazz Fest. It hosted the Police and Fire Can-Am games in the summer of 2008.
