New Wingate by Wyndham Regina Opening in November



    HALIFAX, Sept. 18 /CNW/ - It's been 20 years since the downtown Regina
skyline has seen the addition of a new hotel but in November 2007 the
multi-million dollar Wingate by Wyndham Regina will become part of the city's
bustling downtown.
    Glenn Squires, CEO of Pacrim Hospitality Services Inc. announced today
that the seven storey, 118 room hotel under construction at the corner of
Broad Street and Saskatchewan Drive will open in late fall as Wingate by
Wyndham Regina, the third property in Canada to carry this flag. Pacrim
Hospitality Services will manage the property and Mr. Squires indicated that
experienced hotelier Laura Armitage has returned to her "second home", Regina
as General Manager.
    "Located in the heart of the city and adjacent to transportation hubs and
major attractions, the Wingate by Wyndham Regina will become a choice for
business and for leisure travel," Mr. Squires said. "Pacrim Hospitality
Services is proud that this well appointed property is the first Saskatchewan
hotel in our portfolio."
    The hotel will offer guests double Queen, King rooms and King suites.
There are two meeting rooms with capacity for seating more than 100 people,
free high speed internet, whirlpool, fitness centre and a complimentary
continental breakfast featuring hot items. "Those of us working on site to
make this hotel a memorable experience are excited about what's taking shape
here," Laura Armitage said. "Our objective is to offer each and every guest a
comfortable stay, superior service and to demonstrate the heartland
hospitality for which Regina and Saskatchewan are famous," she added.
    The Wingate by Wyndham Regina is owned by RegWin Hotels Limited of Regina
and is being developed by Superior Lodging Corporation of Calgary. It has a
construction budget of $13 million and will employ approximately 30 people,
primarily from the local area. RegWin Hotels President Harold Rotstein is
enthusiastic about the Regina hotel indicating "it is a perfect fit for
downtown Regina in every way; size, level of service and contemporary look
complementing this growing area."
    Superior Lodging Corporation has built sister properties carrying the
Wingate by Wyndham brand in Calgary and Edmonton and specializes in the
development of market-sensitive hotels. President Ian McAuley says that
"research and market insights have been invested in this project to ensure it
opens successfully and remains that way."
