Bayview Hospitality Inc. Opens Dual-Branded Property at Toronto Airport -

by a Shared Common Area, Pool and Fitness Center



MCLEAN, Va. - March 24, 2010 - Homewood Suites by Hilton, the international brand of all-suite, residential-style hotels, and Hampton Hotels, the international brand of nearly 1,800 hotels, today announced the opening of their first dual-branded development in Canada. Located within minutes from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, the two buildings boast 126 Hampton rooms and 128 Homewood brand suites and are joined by a shared common area, pool and fitness center. The hotel is owned by Bayview Toronto Airport Corporate Centre Ltd and managed by Bayview Hospitality, Inc.

“We have had increasing success with our dual-branded projects within the focused-service segment and feel these two leading brands bring high-quality services and amenities at a value-conscious price point.”

“Hilton Worldwide and Bayview Hospitality Inc. recognized a need in both the upscale extended-stay and mid-priced transient hotel segments in the growing Toronto Airport Corporate Centre area,” said Phil Cordell, Global Head, Focused Service Brands Hilton Worldwide. “We have had increasing success with our dual-branded projects within the focused-service segment and feel these two leading brands bring high-quality services and amenities at a value-conscious price point.”

Located at 5515 Eglinton Avenue West, on the Mississauga/Toronto border, the hotel offers two separate check-in desks and lodging/dining areas – each catering to the needs of their respective customers. The shared areas include the meeting rooms, business center, pool, putting green and fitness center.

“We are thrilled that Hilton Worldwide has chosen to partner with Bayview Hospitality Inc. for this first-of-its-kind project in Canada,” said Alnoor Gulamani, President. “As land becomes more difficult to acquire in such growing areas, these dual-branded hotels offer an efficient solution to developers and greater options to the consumer.”

Homewood Suites guests enjoy a range of complimentary services and amenities, including a daily full hot buffet breakfast in the hotel’s hospitality center - the “Lodge” - an evening reception featuring a light meal and non-alcoholic beverages Monday-Thursday, an executive business center and a 24-hour on-site pantry. The brand’s spacious studio, one- and two-bedroom suites feature separate living and sleeping areas and fully-equipped kitchens with full-size refrigerators, a microwave, two-burner stove and a dishwasher. Guests receive enough space for work, study or entertaining with all the comforts of home including a HD LCD TV, complimentary high-speed internet access and two phones with voice mail.

This property marks a milestone for Hampton as its 30th opening in Canada. Hampton Hotels offers guests free On the House hot breakfast seven days a week and a 24-hour hot tea and coffee station. All guest rooms feature amenities such as free high-speed internet access, and Hampton’s signature Clean and Fresh bed.
