MasterBUILT Hotels Opens First Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham Hotel in
CALGARY, Nov. 1, 2012 /CNW/ - MasterBUILT Hotels, a joint venture between
Superior Lodging Corp. - one of Canada's largest and most successful hotel
developers renowned for establishing the Super 8 and Wingate by Wyndham brands
in Canada - and Jayman MasterBUILT, one of Canada's premier residential
builder developers over the past three decades - celebrated the opening of
Microtel's first Canadian prototype hotel in Estevan, Saskatchewan.
Estevan's newest and most anticipated hotel is situated on King Street with
convenient access to shopping, dining, entertainment, the Leisure Centre, and
Civic Auditorium just a few blocks away. The Microtel Inn & Suites by
Wyndham in Estevan (www.microtelestevan.com) is the city's first hotel to
offer guests an indoor pool and waterslide and features an extensive range of
complimentary amenities: deluxe hot continental breakfast, coffee,
high-speed wireless Internet, weekday newspaper, indoor water park with hot
tub, fitness center, parking and business centre. Guests also have access to
valet cleaning service, a copy/fax / printing service, and a locker room for
oilfield workers to store their gear.
"It gives us great pleasure to be able to open our very first Microtel by
Wyndham in Estevan and provide the community with modern, high quality
accommodation that meets the demands of today's business and leisure traveler"
said, Eric Watson, VP of development. "With a booming economy and strong
demand for quality lodging in the region, Estevan was a natural choice to
launch our Microtel by Wyndham concept in Canada."
The opening of the hotel has created ~20 permanent jobs with most of the
positions being filled by local Estevan residents. "We couldn't be more
pleased by the positive feedback and warm reception from the local community
and we look forward to becoming a partner and contributor to Estevan's future
growth" stated, Marc Staniloff, Co-Chairman of MasterBUILT Hotels. "As a new
business in Estevan, we are delighted to support the St. Joseph's Hospital
Foundation with a $5000 donation to aid in sustaining ongoing development of
advanced healthcare for the community".
The Microtel in Estevan is the first hotel of an extensive development plan by
MasterBUILT Hotels that calls for the opening of 75 Microtel by Wyndham hotels
in Canada over the next twenty-five years. The next Microtel is slated to
open in Timmins, ON later this year with construction scheduled to commence on
hotels in Weyburn, SK, Lloydminster, SK, Fort McMurray, AB, Red Deer, AB,
Blackfalds, AB over the next 6 months. There are currently two other
Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham open in Canada in Woodstock and Parry Sound,
ON, both of which represent the brand's older design concept.
"In addition to the hotels already in the development permitting stages, we
currently have equity funds committed and sites identified in more than ten
additional markets which we intend to execute on over the next 36 months. Our
Microtel concept has been designed and will be purpose-built for the Canadian
lodging landscape and we ultimately believe that it will quickly become one of
the country's most recognizable and beloved brands by guests and hotel owners
alike" said Mr. Watson.
