NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla. — Driftwood Hospitality Management, a North Palm Beach, Fla.-based hotel management company, has announced it will be opening its first property in Canada, with the development of an upper mid-scale hotel in Truro, N.S.
Built in partnership with the Millbrook First Nation community — the local aboriginal community of Nova Scotia — the 94-room property will be located in the Truro Power Centre, which is comprised of retail operations, a restaurant and an entertainment centre. It will feature an indoor pool with waterslide, complimentary hot breakfast and 700 sq. ft. of meeting space. “With a booming economy, ideal location near Highway 102 and less than 40 minutes from Halifax Stanfield International Airport, this hotel will emerge as one of the leading properties in the area,” said David Buddemeyer, president of Driftwood Hospitality Management. “We look forward to leveraging our experience in construction and new builds in collaboration with the Millbrook First Nation.”
Driftwood’s hotel portfolio consists of nearly 40 hotels and more than 8,000 rooms in the U.S., the Bahamas and Costa Rica.
