KINGSTON, Ont. — Concord Hospitality Enterprises has formed a joint venture with Select Hotel Group to acquire the Kingston, Ont.-based Four Points by Sheraton Hotel. Under terms of the agreement, Concord will manage the hotel, which was built by the Melo Hotel Group.
“With 11 hotels in our portfolio and others in the pipeline, Concord has been increasingly active in Canada, with particular emphasis on Ontario,” said Mark Laport, president of Concord. “The Melo family has done a wonderful job developing and operating this hotel. With Concord’s emphasis on quality, integrity and contributing to the communities in which we operate, the hotel will be an important addition to our Canadian portfolio.”
The 169-room hotel, located on the site of the historic British American Hotel, will undergo a multi-million dollar refresh to its public areas. Plans include an enhanced lobby experience with an interactive environment and business centre. The hotel’s fitness centre will triple in size as part of the upgrade.
The Four Points by Sheraton Kingston, located on the St. Lawrence River, is the city’s first smoke-free hotel. The hotel also features the restaurant Sizzle On Main.
