A big thank you to all the staff at the Hilton who helped us make some special moments for our parents. We were coming into Saskatoon for the weekend for my daughters dancing and thought it would be a nice treat to invite our parents to come in the Saturday to celebrate our moms 76th birthday and our parents 54th wedding anniversary. Upon our arrival Friday night, we were greeted by friendly staff and thoroughly enjoyed the citrus water available in the lobby after our long drive.
We had brought a beautiful bouquet with us to surprise our parents and Saturday morning the staff was more then happy to help us by making sure they were placed in the room before they checked in and was happy to see that when they checked in they were sitting beautifully displayed on the desk. After a bit of visiting we headed down to the restaurant in the hotel to enjoy a lovely supper. The food was amazing and after mentioning it was my moms birthday that we were celebrating, a special dessert was put together for her (best cheesecake ever). After we enjoyed a lovely cup of tea, I received the check and realized that my moms dessert was on them...very nice.
After retiring to our rooms for the night, my daughter noticed a note written on the notepad usually in the rooms that said, "Good day Ms...., I hope you are enjoying your stay with us. Signed..." Another thoughtful touch.
The next morning we scooted down for brunch before everyone headed back home. We shared a photo of the lovely dessert made by the chef with our morning waitress and my mom said that it was the best stay she has ever had and was treated like a queen. Needless to say when the waitress brought over the check she told my mom that it was their treat...when I looked at the charges, there was only 3 breakfasts charged and told mom that they had got her breakfast.
It has been a rough year and a half for our family having lost my brother to a very short battle with cancer. The weekend meant a lot to us and we cannot thank you enough for helping us treat our parents to a well deserved weekend off. A few happy tears were seen throughout the weekend. Your staff is courteous, kind and thoughtful. Thank you again.
