DELTA BESSBOROUGH HOTEL: Elegance, comfort and even its own ghost
It's unlike any other building in Saskatoon, dominating the skyline from every angle and this chateau style castle on the river is the first image that comes to mind when one thinks of Saskatoon. It was the last of the grand railway hotels to be built in Canada, with construction announced in 1928, started in 1930 and completed in 1933 but, due to difficult economic times, did not open until 1935. Named for the 14th GovernorGeneral of Canada, Sir Vere Brabazon Ponsonby, 9th Earl of Bessborough, the 10-storey "Bess", with its 225 guest rooms, offers elegance, comfort and even, reputedly, its own ghost -- an elderly gentleman who has supposedly been seen wandering the halls.
