Atlanta-based hotel owner, operator and developer Hotel Equities has been selected to manage the new-build 258-room Four Points by Sheraton and Residence Inn by Marriott dual-brand hotel in Langley, British Columbia. Construction on the hotel, owned by Mitchell Hospitality, Inc., is slated to begin this year, with plans to open in 2021.
 
“We are proud to partner with the owners on this hotel development,” said Joe Reardon, chief development officer for HE. “The dual-brand model is intended to attract a more diverse range of guests as well as meet the market’s increased demand for various types of accommodations. The food and beverage concept will be one-of-a-kind in the region with an upgraded offering to cater to in-house customers, as well as the business offices surrounding the area.”
 
According to the company, HE has experienced significant growth in Canada over the past year, prompting the creation of a regional office. The Marriott development is the firm’s tenth hotel addition since entering the Canadian market in early 2018.
 
The property will occupy two buildings joined by shared spaces, including the lobby, fitness and recreation facilities and nearly 8,000 square feet of event space. Features include an indoor swimming pool and whirlpool, 24-hour market, guest laundry, a business center, restaurant, and lounge with private event options.
