Unrooming The Delta Bessborough

Unrooming The Delta Bessborough September 13, 2016 · 2 min. readWhile the thoughts and opinions are my own, this article was brought to you by a third party. Also, this article may contain affiliate links.

The Delta Bessborough Hotel is Saskatoon's most picturesque landmark. It was constructed during the Great Depression and was one of the many projects that helped save Saskatoon's struggling downtown area. The hotel is a premium destination for work functions, receptions, weddings or just weekend trips to the Paris of the Prairies. Supposedly haunted – although the receptionist claims the only spirits in the hotel are the ones served at the bar – they also have ghost tours in October in anticipation for Halloween.

It would come to no surprise then that when Hotels.com approached me to "unroom" a suite of any hotel of my choosing, I immediately chose the Bessborough. For those who don't know, "unrooming" is similar to "unboxing", which is when a person records their first impressions and reactions when opening something for the first time, may it be a new iPhone or a television. Instead of unboxing a product however, this time I was unrooming a room.

Meet Your 2020 Saskatchewanderer

Leah Mertz became the tenth Saskatchewanderer in 2020, opening up a new decade in the Saskatchewander program. Much like past wanderers, she has a love for content creation, travel and a soft spot for Saskatchewan. Her journey in the program has been unique so far this year, so I sat down with her (virtually) and asked her a bit about the first half of herself and her time as the Saskatchewanderer.

First off, where are you from?

I originally grew up near Chestermere, Alberta, but probably around the time I was in middle school, I knew I wanted to leave. I went to university in Edmonton but it wasn't a good fit so I eventually moved to Vancouver and went to school there. I was there for 6 years and then moved to Montreal for 4 years. Now I'm living in Saskatoon and it's barely been a year, but it's already changed my life in many ways. I feel like I'm from all of these places in a sense; they're all a huge part of who I am.

5 Incredible G Adventures Tours

Today is Blue Monday. For those who don't know what Blue Monday is, it's the third Monday in January after the holidays; or the most depressing day of the year. It's the day when all the Christmas baking runs out, all the presents start gathering dust, all the lights have been taken down and you come to the revelation that you are in the same unhappy situation you were one month ago, only this time there's no Santa Claus at the end of the month.

I was hit with the Blue Monday blues once too, a few years ago. I had been fired from one job I really enjoyed, and started working for somebody else who I just wasn't compatible with. There was a mounting personality conflict between me and my employer and after one Friday night phone call telling me I had to come back to the office and do more work, I decided I had had enough. I finished my project, filed my reports and left a note on my employer's desk that simply said "I quit". The following Monday I changed my phone number, blocked him on social media and walked away from that situation forever. A week later I had a new job at a place I liked, and life carried on.

So, when I say Blue Monday sucks, I mean it.
