As a guest of our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Regina, you can explore the historic capital of Canada's Saskatchewan prairie lands. In no time you'll be visiting the house of the former British governor and sipping hand-crafted lagers in a brewpub.
Our hotels in Regina are close to the hundreds of acres of calm lake waters and serene parkland in the Wascana Centre. Visit a bird refuge populated with Canadian geese and singing warblers, or catch a ferry to an island for a picnic on sunny summer days. In winter, ice skaters glide across the frozen lake and cross-country skiers whisk through the powdery trails. Discover bronze statues and watercolor paintings in the nearby MacKenzie Gallery, which specializes in works by Saskatchewan and Canadian artists. The Government House mansion-complete with billiards hall and ballroom-is an elegant reminder of Regina's former role as a British administrative capital in the 1800s.
Relax in a cafe or bakery in the Cathedral neighborhood, or settle in after hours to sip Canadian vintages in a local wine bar. Our hotels in Regina are close to the Old Warehouse District, along Dewdney Avenue near downtown, where welcoming restaurants and cozy pubs serve up roast chicken, stuffed duck and sirloin steak. Taste dozens of small-batch beers in the local brewpubs, where amber ales, Pilsner lagers and heavy stout brews change with the season.
Stay in our Holiday Inn hotels in Regina to learn about the 100-year history of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Canada's national police. Mementos and weapons at the RCMP Heritage Centre chronicle the Mounties' pivotal role in Canadian history. In July and August, guests of our Regina hotels watch thousands of young recruits at the nearby RCMP Training Academy parade in their bright red uniforms to the beat of bugle and drums.
