A new hotel began development in Calgary, Canada. SilverBirch Hotels and Resorts began work on a new property on the northwest corner of 10th Avenue and 5th Street S.W., which will include a SilverBirch conference center and a Residence Inn by Marriott.

Both the conference center and the Residence Inn by Marriott Calgary Downtown are scheduled to be completed in early 2019. The property will be focused on the business and leisure markets, as well as groups and meetings. 

The all-suite Marriott will have full kitchens and separate living and sleeping areas. A terrace lounge and roof deck will also be accessible to guests. The 34-story hotel will have 390 suites. When completed, the conference center will have 10,000 square feet of event space.
