TORONTO — Realstar Hospitality is expanding its portfolio with the opening of its latest property, Days Inn – Sioux Lookout in Ontario.
The new Sioux Lookout hotel is constructed using prefabricated steel shipping containers. The 120 containers were retrofitted into bedrooms, shipped by truck and interconnected on site, creating a 60-room hotel.
“The method used to construct this hotel demonstrates the commitment our franchisees have to productivity and innovation. Without this technique, it would not have been possible to cost-effectively build a hotel on the site,” said Irwin Prince, president, COO, Realstar Hospitality in Toronto.
The hotel features on-site amenities such as free Daybreak Café breakfast, a bar-lounge area, a fitness room as well as conference space and banquet space. Each guestroom has free Wi-Fi, a 40-inch LCD TV, a coffee maker, an iron and a hairdryer.
