KINGSTON, Ont.— Choice Hotels Canada has announced the opening of its first-ever dual-branded hotel: Quality Inn & Conference Centre and Comfort Suites Kingston Central in Kingston, Ont.
“We’re so excited for the opening of these two properties and look forward to further serving the Kingston area,” says Brian Leon, president of Choice Hotels Canada. “In this instance, having two of our hotel brands side by side was the perfect fit for the community and we’re thrilled to welcome the Springer Group of Companies into our extended family.”
Based in Kingston, The Springer Group of Companies is a large commercial developer and experienced hotel franchise owner and developer.
The two hotels will be adjacent to one another, with the shared reception desk and lobby area located in the Quality Inn & Conference Centre. In the future, the properties will also be connected by a planned underground tunnel for guests to travel between both buildings.
The Quality Inn & Conference Centre is the larger of the two properties with 100 guestrooms, several meeting rooms and a large conference space that can accommodate up to 400 visitors. There is also onsite guest laundry, a newly renovated indoor swimming pool and fitness centre. The Comfort Suites has 64 guestrooms, including some with balconies, as well as its own indoor swimming pool and business center.
“We’re thrilled to be expanding our portfolio in Kingston and opening not one, but two hotels under such trusted and reputable banners,” says Michael Springer, president of Diamond Hotels, an affiliate of Springer Group of Companies. “We believe they will be well received by guests and locals and we look forward to the future and growing our relationship with Choice Hotels Canada.”
