Best Western Reveals New Look

Pipestone Flyer

After months of having its façade covered in bright tarps, Leduc’s Best Western Denham Inn finally revealed its beautifully enhanced exterior walls, donned in appealing light brown stucco-style and large stone columns.

The hotel’s main entrance is now adorned with an impressive roof structure, while two stylish signs are promoting Jonathan’s Lounge and O’Brian’s Restaurant. Both venues have been spruced up, and each offers an impressive table convenient for larger groups wanting to share drinks and “appies” or a more substantial meal.

On the occasion of the Leduc Regional Chamber of Commerce Christmas Mixer, a large group of business people and local officials gathered for a pleasant function. The atmosphere was festive, enhanced by two lovely and talented musicians performing seasonal favorites. Diana and Elisabeth Turner played the guitar and sang. They of course are members of the Turner family of Leduc and proud ambassadors of the Turner Music Studio on Main Street.

The unveiling of a new chic look for the Best Western is a ‘front’ for the recent revamping of the hotel’s menu and beverage options, as general manager Perry Batke has added a few more highly trained individuals to his management team. The wine list has been a favorite topic these days among the local wine connoisseurs wishing to discover quality Canadian wines. The light fare prepared on site was delicious and served by another congenial young chef.

This was a fun and intimate function put together by the dynamic ‘Chamber Ladies’ and their congenial leader, Executive Director Jennifer Garries. A great way to wind down the business year and to discover what the Best Western Denham Inn promises us in the New Year.
