Description
Architect: Ross & Macdonald
Developer: Canadian Pacific Railway

Most of the materials used in this hotel's construction, including the Tyndall Stone cladding, were obtained locally.

Hotel Saskatchewan was the second attempt to build a grand railway hotel in Regina. The first hotel was the Chateau Qu'Appelle. Construction started, but it was never completed, when the Grand Trunk Railway went bankrupt. Regina's aldermen lobbied the Canadian Pacific Railway for a first-class hotel to attract more tourists. The partially-constructed Chateau Qu'Appelle was demolished in the 1920's and Canadian Pacific Railway purchased the girders for use in the Hotel Saskatchewan. The hotel became a favorite of royalty and political dignitaries.
