Calgary, Alberta (Aug 6, 2015) – 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 builder developers over the past three decades – will be celebrating the opening of their newest Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham in Kitimat BC later this month. The opening will mark the 2nd Microtel in British Columbia and 13th in Canada.
With the opening comes the launch of the Common Ground program, which is the first hotel donation program of its kind in Canada, created by MasterBUILT Hotels as a “Thank you” to the community for welcoming the newest Microtel to Kitimat. MasterBUILT Hotels will be donating $5000 to a local organization and is asking the community to decide which organization will receive the financial support by placing their vote at microtelcanada.com/commonground. Collaborated with the Kitimat Humane Society, Kitimat Gymnastics Club and Kitimat Child Development Centre, MasterBUILT gives voters the option to choose which of these important organizations means the most to them.
The public will have until 12:00pm MST Sept. 7, 15 to place their vote and show their support for these very worthy organizations. “We look forward to being part of the Kitimat community and feel the Common Ground initiative highlights the importance of working together and supporting the wellbeing of the community.
We are pleased to be working with three great organizations that offer important services to this community” say Eric Watson, Chief Operating Officer of MasterBUILT Hotels.
The Microtel in Kitimat is part of an extensive development plan by MasterBUILT Hotels that calls for the opening of 75 Microtel by Wyndham hotels in Canada over the next 25 years. Currently there are 12 Microtel Inns & Suites open in Canada; 11 under the prototypical new design including Timmins, Sault Ste Marie, Kirkland Lake, Casselman ON, Estevan, Weyburn, Lloydminster SK, Whitecourt, Red Deer, Blackfalds AB, Fort St John BC and 1 under the brands’ original older design concept in Parry Sound ON.
