By the end of 2009, 15 of True North’s 18 open hotels will carry the Marriott flag. 

“In spite of these extraordinary economic times, True North Hotels is fortunate to have four new hotels coming on line,” said Lew Wiens, president.  “Our east coast hotels were all financed before the recent financing fiasco and are in markets somewhat insulated from recessionary pressure.”
