Marriott International opened the Four Points Hamilton-Stoney Creek in Hamilton, Ontario.
Sunray Group of Hotels manages the 138-room property. The former Quality Hotel Hamilton is near the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, the Royal Botanical Gardens, Toronto, the Niagara Region, the Africa Lion Safari and the John C. Munro International Airport.
Four Points is on track to continue its expansion with more than 120 signed hotels in the pipeline. More than 65 percent of the brand's signed hotel projects are expected to open outside of North America.
The Four Points Hamilton-Stoney Creek is the first of five Four Points by Sheraton hotels joining the Sunray Group portfolio, which includes 31 hotels operating in Ontario. The group's first Marriott-branded hotel in the province—the TownPlace Suites by Marriott—opened in Windsor, Ontario last year with 128 suites.
The TownPlace operates as a Marriott franchise while Sunray Group owns and manages it. The property underwent a $10-million renovation of the original hotel. Construction began on the nine-story hotel in 2015.
The hotel is downtown near the Windsor International Airport, local businesses, University of Windsor, St. Clair College, Windsor International Airport, the Windsor Aquatic Center, the Adventures Bay Family Water Park, Caesars Windsor, Windsor/Detroit Tunnel and the Ambassador Bridge.
Sunray Group also recently added the Delta Toronto East Hotel to its portfolio in Canada. The company acquired the hotel from Tarn Financial for an undisclosed price in July. Sunray Group plans to rebrand the Delta hotel as a Sheraton property and renovate the 366 guestrooms and common areas within the next year.
