CALGARY — Clique Hotels and Resorts has been selected by Temple Hotels Inc. to operate the Acclaim Hotel Calgary Airport — the 225-room hotel that Clique built in 2009 and sold in 2013. The hotel, which features more than 9,000 sq. ft. of event and conference space, will be rebranded as the Acclaim Hotel by Clique.
The Acclaim Hotel opened in 2009 and within its first six months was the leader in the market. In 2013, it underwent an expansion of 103 rooms and 6,000 sq. ft. of event space and was sold to Temple Hotels Inc.
The hotel features the first Pacini Ristorante Grill in Western Canada — one of the top-performing restaurants in the franchise. Other Calgary firsts include rooftop hot tubs and televisions in the bathrooms.
Barry Lewis, general manager of Hotel Clique and Applause Hotel in Calgary, will be the new GM at Acclaim Hotel to ensure that Clique’s guest-satisfaction focus is brought to Acclaim. Before coming to Clique, Lewis was the GM for Hampton Inn and Suites in Red Deer, Alta.
“We’ve proven we can compete with the top global brands and we’re excited to have the Acclaim back in our hotel portfolio”, says Jim Muir, president, Clique Hotels and Resorts.
