Microtel Inn & Suites, byt Wyndham
Enters the GTA in Aurora, Ontario
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (January 30, 2017) – MasterBUILT Hotels, a joint venture between Superior Lodging Corp. - one of Canada’s largest and most successful hotel developers - and Jayman MasterBUILT, one of Canada’s premier residential builders over the past three decades – announces the expansion of the Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham brand into Aurora, Ontario.
The Aurora Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham location will mark the brand’s sixth location in Ontario and the first Microtel located within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). The hotel is intended to be a flagship location for the brand, featuring its new urban construction design and offering guests modern accommodations with complimentary ultra high-speed Internet, hot continental breakfast, upscale fitness centre, swimming pool, and meeting room facilities. The hotel will be fully accessible and features the latest in safety and security in guest rooms and public spaces, including two electric car charging stations. The 100+ guest rooms and suites will feature a compact refrigerator, microwave and in room coffee with select rooms featuring a full kitchen, separate bedroom and living room, ideal for extended stays.
"When we first visited Aurora over a year ago we knew right away that the town would be the ideal location to launch the new urban design of Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham in Canada. Aurora is a vibrant community with a great deal of growth and opportunity and we look forward to being part of it. The town has been very accommodating and a pleasure to work with in getting this project started and we look forward to bringing much needed accommodations to the community," says Eric Watson, Chief Operating Officer of MasterBUILT Hotels.
The hotel development will be processed through the Town of Aurora’s Business Concierge program to ensure the project is managed as expeditiously as possible.
"Aurora is thrilled to partner with the premier developer of ground up hotels in Canada to address the acute hotel shortage in town. I especially wish to thank York Region Chairman and CEO for his support as we worked through the issue of development charges for hotels, removing a substantial inhibitor to bringing this hotel to our community," says Town of Aurora Mayor Geoffrey Dawe.
"We are pleased that Aurora has been selected as the first location for a new, modern Microtel & Suites facility," said York Region Chairman and CEO, Wayne Emmerson. "York Region is a significant business and tourist centre, and a new hotel will not only create jobs for our residents, but it will offer visitors top notch, comfortable and friendly accommodations."
