The Humming Bird and I

Thanksgiving in Saskatoon Saskatchewan

Visiting family in Saskatoon was the event on the list. Staying at the Senator hotel a 101 year old, was the treat. At first pulling up to a small quaint hotel in the heart of Saskatoon’s downtown district seemed a bit discouraging, with all the colorful characters around the streets. But once inside its atmosphere with its marble staircase and wood paneled walls was a true Victorian treat. Arriving fairly late in the evening we decided to have dinner at the hotels restaurant the Rembrandt. The menu was what I expected for high class dinning. It was the splendid dinning room which impressed me the most. The dinning room was adorned with 100 year old statues and roof bordered with elaborate plaster etchings. It was simply a wonderful place to share a meal with the Humming Bird. The staff was especially pleasant, as our waiter for the night being close to the end of his shift, took us on a tour of the hotel including the depths of the basement which hosts a sitting area and poker room with original brick work. Overall the stay was nostalgic and reminiscent of day of old. We enjoyed our stay and recommend this hotel to anyone interested in our Canadian history.
