MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — There’s a new extended-stay option in the Mississauga Airport centre, as TownePlace Suites by Marriott Mississauga-Airport Corporate Centre unveiled its $17-million design at a grand opening ceremony last night. The former 172-room Sandalwood Suites Hotel has been rebranded and redesigned.
“The extended-stay market is what we are after,” said Dan McIlhone, the hotel’s GM, adding that he hopes extended-stay guests will make up 50 per cent of the hotel’s business. With customers staying anywhere, from a few days up to an entire year, the rooms are designed to make people feel like they’re at home. Inside each room is a fully-equipped kitchen, 42-inch LCD flat-panel HD TVs and adjustable workspaces with ergonomic chairs and free Wi-Fi. The hotel also offers a pool, fitness centre and two meeting rooms, including one named after Hazel McCallion, the Mayor of Mississauga. Other amenities include a private courtyard garden outside with a barbecue patio as well as complimentary breakfast and airport shuttle services.
“We are thrilled to be open for business and able to show business or leisure travellers that TownePlace Suites by Marriott is an extended-stay hotel brand designed with the guest in mind,” said Steve Giblin, president and CEO of SilverBirch Hotels & Resorts, which owns and manages the TownePlace Suites Mississauga. “We have aimed to create an environment that reflects a feeling of simple, fresh, friendly, real and local.”
