EDMONTON — Hotel Equities (HE) has announced the grand opening of the Courtyard by Marriott Nanaimo in B.C. Hotel Equities partnered with Utah-based commercial real estate leader PEG Companies and Petroglyph Development Group to manage the new hotel.
Conveniently situated adjacent the Vancouver Island Conference Centre, and between Casino Nanaimo and the Nanaimo Museum, the new hotel offers industry-leading amenities including a charming street-level café, large pool and an all-inclusive fitness centre. Design features include angular windows with street-side views, stone panels and a façade of exterior colours. Vancouver-based sustainable construction firm, Nexii, has generated efficiencies in the buildout by using its innovative construction methodology. As part of PEG’s design plan, the hotel pays homage to Nanaimo’s cultural heritage through Snuneymuxw-inspired decor and serves as a symbol of the rich cultural heritage of the Snuneymuxw people.
“Hotel Equities has a strong footprint in Canada that benefits from HE’s strategic approach to talent and technology platforms which provide operational efficiencies across all of our properties,“ says Martin Stitt, SVP of Operations for Hotel Equities. “We look forward to utilizing these systems to provide sound support for property operations benefiting our associates, guests and ownership.”
