Vantage adds two Ontario hotels to Canadian portfolio

Lexington

Vantage Hotels has made its Sudbury, Ontario, debut with the additions of a 77-room Lexington Hotel and 45-room Canadas Best Value Inn.
 
Formerly a Howard Johnson, the Lexington Hotel is undergoing renovations. All of the guestrooms are being completely gutted and updated with new flooring, bathroom fixtures, counter tops, tile, furniture, bedding and wallcoverings. The renovations are being done in stages so that, at any one time, some rooms will be available to the public. The lobby also will be renovated with new furniture and flooring.
 
The Canadas Best Value Inn, formerly the Cardinal Motor Inn, is expected to be fully operational under the CBVI banner later this month. The property also is completing a renovation program on the exterior, guestrooms, lobby and breakfast area. 
 
Vantage Hotels has more than 30 properties throughout Canada, including 14 in Ontario. The Sudbury property is the second Lexington in the country, joining a Lexington Inn & Suites in Windsor, Ontario.
