Sheraton Montreal Airport to debut in April

MONTRÉAL The 476-key Sheraton Montreal Airport Hotel is scheduled to debut in April, marking the brand’s third property in the Montréal market.

Montreal Airport Hotel was acquired by Jesta Group and Groupe Canvar in 2009 and is currently undergoing a multi-million-dollar renovation to all guestrooms and public spaces prior to adding the Sheraton flag.

“We look forward to expanding the Sheraton portfolio in Québec as we continue to execute our targeted global growth strategy,” says Hoyt Harper, senior vice president of Sheraton Hotels & Resorts. “Sheraton Montreal Airport Hotel will embody the new look and feel of Sheraton following the brand’s recently completed US$6 billion brand-wide revitalization, which included US$400 million in signature brand initiatives designed to create community and make it easy to stay connected.”

Conversions are driving and will continue to drive the Sheraton brand’s expansion across North America, says Paul Sacco, senior vice president of North America development for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide. Sheraton aims to add approximately 50 new hotels and more than 20,000 guestrooms to its portfolio over the next two years. “Sheraton is leading Starwood’s market share growth following the completion of its comprehensive revitalization, which significantly improved guest satisfaction and loyalty and increased the brand’s appeal among owners and developers.”

The heart of the lobby will be the brand’s signature Link@Sheraton experienced with Microsoft, the Sheraton brand’s signature social hub. The hotel’s guestrooms will be upgraded and equipped with an oversized work desk, custom-designed ergonomic chair, high-speed Internet, LCD flat panel television, MP3 home docking station and the Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed.

“We are proud to fly the Sheraton flag at our premium airport hotel, and are thrilled with the recent enhancements to the iconic brand,” says Eric Aintabi, vice president of Jesta Group. “This is an excellent addition to our growing portfolio of hotels located in Europe, the United States and Canada. Another benefit of joining Sheraton is to become part of the powerful Starwood network and reach even more travelers through the innovative and award-winning Starwood Preferred Guest program.”

Located on Côte de Liesse, Sheraton Montreal Airport Hotel sits at the entrance to Trudeau International Airport and 20 minutes from downtown Montréal. The hotel will offer convenient access to the West Island business district and numerous area attractions, including historic Old Montréal, Montreal Museum of Fine Art, Place des Arts, and Casino de Montréal.

Sheraton Montreal Airport will join Le Centre Sheraton Montreal Hotel and Sheraton Laval Hotel in the local market.
