When travelling for business, it helps to find one of the best Regina hotels that offers a comfortable, spacious and practical in-room workspace. 

With its central location in the agricultural, mining and oil and gas belt of Canada, Regina, Saskatchewan has become a popular place to conduct business. The province is home to some international companies and manufacturers and as the provincial capital, is also home to a number of governmental offices. Many who travel to the city on business are looking for Regina hotels that not only offer a comfy bed, but a place to work, meet with clients as well as engage in stress-relieving activities. Here are 5 things to look for when booking a business hotel in Regina, SK:

1. Location and Proximity to Major Transportation Routes

Smack dab in between the major Canadian cities of Winnipeg and Calgary, Saskatchewan’s capital is a major transportation hub. Business travellers who are flying or driving can save time, money and their sanity by finding a centrally located hotel in Saskatchewan and Regina International Airport (YQR) and the Trans Canada Highway (Highway 1).

The Comfort Suites Regina business hotel is located only 9 kilometres directly north of YQR just off Louis Riel Trail (Highway 11). Access to downtown Regina and Highway 1 is a short trip via the Ring Road bypass, which bisects the city.

2. In-Room and Extra Amenities

While a coffee maker and comfy bed are definitely required items when on a business trip, it also helps to have Regina hotel rooms that offer both in-room and other amenities such as:

  • Fridge or microwave to make that late-night snack
  • Desks that offer an outlet to charge your laptop
  • Safes to keep your valuables
  • Large flat-screen TVs to watch the news or a film
  • Laundry and/or dry-cleaning services
  • ATMs
  • Vending machines and/or sundry shop
  • Express check-out services

3. Business Centre and Meeting Rooms

While it’s impossible to stuff your desk into your briefcase, you can find a hotel in Regina that acts as a remote office to conduct business as well as meet with clients.

The Comfort Suites not only has a business centre that is open 24 hours and features a seating area, computer, remote secure printer, fax and photocopy services, and high-speed fibre optic Internet, it also offers a meeting space capable of holding up any configuration of guests up to 75. Catering services are also available

4. Healthy Food Options

Eating healthy while on a business trip is important for your state of mind and body. Having easy access to healthy food choices is essential in keeping things like flu and cold bugs at bay and also helps you feel energized for the day’s tasks.  

The Comfort Suites Choice hotel in Regina not only offers a free breakfast buffet with nutritious selections such as fruit, cereal, yogurt and hot items, it also features dine-in options from a number of restaurants delivered to your door by Skip the Dishes as well as nearby dine-out options.

5. Work-out Facilities

If you’re used to starting your day by tracking miles on an elliptical or swimming laps at the local pool, there shouldn’t be a reason to stop when you are on a business trip. Look for Regina hotels with a gym that is open early or late at night and that contains or is located close to Regina swimming pools.

Not only does the Comfort Suites have a 24-hour fitness room with all the latest equipment, but it is also one of the best Regina hotels with a hot tub and lap pool as part of its indoor swimming facilities.
