The Josie Hotel, a Noble House Hotels & Resorts property in partnership with William Cole Companies, is scheduled to open on November 28 in Rossland, British Columbia.

The new “ski-in, ski-out” destination hotel, named after one of the town's mines, the Josie Mine, is situated at the base of Red Mountain Resort's slopes, and the first stop along Canada's Powder Highway, in the heart of the West Kootenays.

The property will feature designs from Song Chia of Dallas-based Fab Studio. It will have contemporary design, amenities and culinary destinations.

In total, The Josie will have 106 rooms, including one-bedroom suites, guestrooms and studio suites. The rooms will have spacious bathrooms and lounge areas, as well as vistas of RED and the surrounding Rossland range. 

For dining, the property will have The Velvet Restaurant and Lounge (The Velvet). 

There will also be a spa and fitness facility; while a mountainside pool will join the amenities in 2019. 

For events, the property will have more than 1,500 sq. ft. of venue space.
