VANCOUVER — Hilton Worldwide and SilverBirch Hotels & Resorts have announced plans to build one hotel and rebrand two additional hotels. The deal includes the first Home2 Suites by Hilton in Canada in Edmonton and the first DoubleTree by Hilton hotels in Edmonton and Regina.
“We are excited to partner with Hilton Worldwide once again to introduce two globally recognized hotel brands, Home2 Suites by Hilton and DoubleTree by Hilton, to Edmonton and Regina,” said Steve Giblin, president and CEO of SilverBirch Hotels & Resorts. “These hotels will help meet the growing demand for quality accommodations in Edmonton and Regina as the tourism industry in these regions continues to expand.”
The new 123-suite Home2 Suites by Hilton West Edmonton will be adjacent to DoubleTree by Hilton West Edmonton. The new-build Home2 Suites property represents the expansion of SilverBirch’s extended-stay portfolio and marks SilverBirch’s introduction to the brand.
Both Mayfield Inn & Suites in West Edmonton and the Regina Inn Hotel and Conference Centre will undergo a renovation to re-launch as the DoubleTree by Hilton West Edmonton and DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Conference Centre Regina, respectively.
The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Conference Centre Regina is scheduled to open in the fall 2013, the DoubleTree by Hilton West Edmonton in early 2014, and the Home2Suites by Hilton West Edmonton in the summer of 2014.
