HAMILTON, Ont. — Sigma Group of Companies and the Kohtari Group have broken ground on the TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Hamilton, Ont.
“We chose Hamilton for our newest hotel as we saw a need for an extended-stay product in the community,” says Anupam Kothari, president of Kothari Group. “We’re excited to bring the Towneplace Suites by Marriott to the area for both commercial travellers, local residents and tourists alike.”
The ceremony, held May 29, featured a number of delegates including Hamilton city councilor John-Paul Danko; Keanin Loomis, president of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce; Aaron Laurie, director of Lodging Development for Eastern Canada, Marriott International; Glen Norton, director of Economic Development; and Sharon Murphy, acting Manager at Tourism Hamilton.
The four-storey, 125-room property is the latest joint-development project between Sigma and the Kohtari Group and is scheduled to open by spring 2020. The all-suite property will include amenities such as a complimentary breakfast, meeting space, a fitness center and a pool.
“We’re incredibly proud and excited to be part of the tremendous growth in the city of Hamilton,” says Anita Dharamshi, managing partner with Sigma Group. “We firmly believe offering quality lodging and warm hospitality helps further strengthen the soul of a community like this.”
Hamilton drew one of the highest number of tourists in its history last year, attracting more than 4.5-million visitors and bringing in $360-million in spending.
