A new franchise partner at the Edmonton International Airport (YEG) and the Nisku Industrial Business Park is the latest addition to Vancouver-based Coast Hotels‘ Alberta portfolio.
The Nisku Inn & Conference Centre will transition to the Coast brand this month, becoming the Coast Nisku Inn & Conference Centre. The property is owned and operated by Mayfair Hotels.
“Coast Hotels’ brand appeal lies in its celebration of the individuality of its properties,” said Zahir Karim, president, Mayfair Hotels. “The Coast Nisku Inn & Conference Centre will offer a recreational and hospitality concept that stands alone in the region. The brand’s strong leisure customer base, together with its strength in meetings and group, align with our fresh offering.”
An extensive renovation, currently underway, includes a complete overhaul of the 15,000-square-foot, centrally-located atrium. The 156-room property has 24,000 square feet of flexible meeting space. Other amenities are:
- complimentary high-speed in-room Wi-Fi;
- health club;
- pool, whirlpool, indoor waterslide and spray deck;
- entertainment and business centre;
- hair salon;
- gift shop;
- restaurant and pub;
- extended airport parking;
- and complimentary 24-hour airport shuttle.
The Nisku Inn complements the Coast brand’s existing Alberta presence, which includes locations in Canmore, Calgary, downtown Edmonton and Lethbridge. It also brings Coast Hotels’ total properties in Western North America to 38.
“We’re delighted to partner with Mayfair Hotels to welcome guests to a new Coast Hotel and to an exciting meeting destination and leisure concept property,” said Victor Komoda, president, Coast Hotels. “Expanding our footprint in Alberta adds value to our customer base.”
