Homewood Suites by Hilton Opening Six New Hotels in Canada by Q2 2014
April 10, 2014 9:37am
The brand’s wave of Canadian hotel openings comes on the heels of what Scotiabank highlighted in a recent report on the Canadian tourism market as a national trend of increased domestic travel due to Canadians’ tighter travel budgets and a weaker Canadian dollar. These factors have many Canadians booking trips closer to home, significantly supporting the domestic tourism market. Simultaneously, there has been an uptick in the number of international travelers visiting Canada, with nearly 2,800 more international overnight trips to Canadian markets taken in December 2013 than during the same time period in 2012, according to a recent report from the Canada Tourism Commission.
“As the Canadian tourism market continues to grow and become more lucrative, it remains an important area for development for Homewood Suites,” said Bill Duncan, global head, Homewood Suites by Hilton and Home2 Suites by Hilton. “Hotels under the Homewood Suites brand flag have earned the trust of guests over the years, and are the answer to the increasing demand for the extended-stay product in Canada.”
Over the last decade, Homewood Suites has steadily built its presence in Canada, which now exceeds 1,300 suites across 12 hotels. The majority of the brand’s current Canadian portfolio is located in Ontario and Quebec, including locations in Burlington, Cambridge, Hamilton, London, Markham, Mississauga, Mont Tremblant, Oakville, Sudbury, Vaughan and Toronto Airport, which shares a flag with Hampton Inn & Suites as the first dual-branded hotel property in the Canada market.
“Kicking the first quarter off with entrance into the Manitoba market, Homewood’s surge into new markets throughout Canada is in line with the brand’s overall goal of increasing its footprint within urban and primary suburban North American markets,” added Duncan.
Additional Canada property openings this year include the following hotels, all slated to open in Q2 2014:
Homewood Suites by Hilton provides travelers amenities and services that maximize their travel budget, including complimentary internet, daily full-hot breakfast and evening dinner and drinks Monday through Thursday*. In addition, Homewood Suites’ 325+ all-suite hotels boast fully equipped kitchens, separate sleeping and living spaces, a complimentary grocery shopping service** and recreational options to stay active – all amenities that enable travelers to be at home and make life on the road more about life and less about the road.
