October 20, 2010, Calgary, Alberta – There was cause for celebration recently at the Super 8 Global conference in Las Vegas where six Canadian Super 8 properties received prestigious awards for going above and beyond to provide outstanding lodging experience to their customers.

“Our Canadian properties are judged alongside their U.S. counterparts, which means that among over 2,000 properties across North America they’ve come out on top; only a few awards are given each year.  We’re extremely proud of this accomplishment,” says Ian McAuley, President of Superior Lodging Corp., the Calgary-based Territorial Developer for the Super 8 brand in Canada.
Tonya Henry of the Super 8 Peterborough, ON received the Employee of the Year Award for Front of the House.  Kevin Heppner of the Super 8 Saskatoon, SK received the Employee of the Year Award for Heart of the House.  Janalyn Smith, Amherst NS and Vanessa Kosteroski, Saskatoon SK were each recognized as General Managers of the Year for the North and Western Regions.  The Top 8 Award for overall property excellence was given to Super 8s in Ponoka, AB; Camrose, AB and Kapuskasing, ON.
“We’re pleased to have outstanding property owners and staff who truly care about providing excellent service, and are also dedicated to making a difference in their communities,” says Ian McAuley.
The Super 8 brand represents the future of the Canadian lodging industry by offering modern, clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation in wide-ranging locations. “Super 8 Hotels all offer their guests a range of in-room amenities, free parking and a complimentary continental breakfast.  Some properties offer water parks, pools and other recreational facilities,” says McAuley.
Both their business and leisure guests demand quality accommodation and great value in a varied range of locations.  Super 8 is pleased to offer a North American reservations system, the WyndhamRewards program and very competitive rates. Further details can be found at
