TYSONS CORNER, Va. — Hilton is opening its newest Canadian property, Home2 Suites by Hilton Fort St. John in B.C. This will be Hilton’s third Home2 in Canada and its first in B.C, coming just one month after the brand reached its 100th property milestone.
“British Columbia has seen significant tourism growth with more than 2.6 million visitors last year and nearly one million this year thus far, providing the ideal market to introduce this brand as the first in the province,” says Adrian Kurre, global head, Home2 Suites by Hilton. “The Home2 Suites brand model offers modern and stylish suites with value-added lifestyle amenities that both business and leisure travellers will enjoy.”
The 90-suite hotel is located at 9519 111th Street, putting guests in close proximity to numerous local sites, including the Aurora Cinema Centre, Fort St. John North Peace Museum, as well as Big Bam Ski Hill, Fort St. John Fish Creek Community Forrest and Beatton Provincial Park. Guests can also travel to and from the North Peace Regional Airport and the Greyhound Bus Depot via the hotel’s complimentary shuttle service.
The new property is owned by Kelowna-based Argus Properties Ltd. and managed by Inn-Trust Hospitality Ltd. Suites feature fully equipped kitchens and modular furniture, which allows guests to customize their room. Amenities include an indoor saline pool, whirlpool spa, outdoor grill area, fire pit and Spin2 Cycle — a combined fitness centre and laundry space. Home2 MKT will provide guests with grab-and-go items, and the brand’s Inspired Table will offer complimentary breakfast with more than 400 potential combinations. The hotel is also pet-friendly.
