SYLVAN LAKE’S COMFORT INN & SUITES WINS NATIONAL AWARD
Hotel gets national nod as ‘Best New Build’ hotel from Choice Hotels Canada
SYLVAN LAKE, ALBERTA (October 6, 2011) – Opened in August, 2010, the Comfort Inn & Suites located at 13 Beju Industrial Drive has won a franchise development award from Choice Hotels as one of the top new hotels to enter its system.
Presented by Choice Hotels Canada, the award recognizes the hotel opened within the past year that offers the best representation of its brand. Consideration is also given to guest feedback collected by a third-party company in a post-stay survey. Since its opening, the Comfort Inn & Suites Sylvan Lake has averaged a 9.1 overall accommodation score on a scale of ten.
“Co-owner and contractor Billy Coles did a wonderful job in building this beautiful property that is an excellent representation of the Comfort Inn & Suites brand,” says Brian Leon, managing director for Choice Hotels Canada. “General Manager Dawn Stacey is doing a great job too as we are getting rave reviews on our guest insight surveys.”
Coles is currently in the final stages of building a similar hotel in Virden, Manitoba, which is anticipated to come online as a member of the Choice Hotels Canada family within the next few months.
Customers are expressing their positive experience at the Sylvan Lake Comfort Inn & Suites as well. Guests from Washington headlined their review “Great Hotel!” and added: “We stayed at the Comfort Inn & Suites while in town to attend a wedding. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful in giving driving directions and making recommendations of restaurants and other activities. The hotel itself was extremely clean and obviously well taken care of. Overall, this was a great hotel and we would definitely stay here again!”
The 61-room hotel features an indoor pool with hot tub, water slide and fitness centre. Well-appointed hotel rooms, family rooms with bunk beds and spacious suites are furnished with flat-screen televisions, microwaves, refrigerators, coffee makers, desks, irons, ironing boards and cable television. One value-packed price includes free deluxe continental breakfast, Wi-Fi and weekday newspaper.
