    HALIFAX, March 29 /CNW/ - Super 8 Motel Barrie, Ontario is open for
business and welcoming guests to the newest, 100 percent smoke-free and
pet-friendly Super 8 property in Canada, General Manager Mirka Rollason said
today. Super 8 Barrie is off to a great start!
    Conveniently located on 441 Bryne Drive, off Highway 400, Super 8 Motel
Barrie was built "from the ground up to meet the expressed needs of business
and leisure travelers to this area of Ontario," Ms. Rollason added. With
82 spacious rooms and amenities from king and queen sized beds to Jacuzzi
rooms, themed rooms created for kids with bunk beds and Xbox gaming systems,
to large suites complete with fireplace and 32" plasma television, "Super 8
Barrie is ready to make each and every guest happy they chose to stay in the
hub of Simcoe County," Ms. Rollason said.
    Twenty-seven inch televisions, free high-speed internet access and
complimentary SuperStart Breakfast are standard to the property.
    Guests can enjoy the indoor heated pool, whirlpool and fitness center by
mid-April. Super 8 Barrie also offers bright, new meeting space, accommodating
45 people, with complimentary high speed internet.
    Seventeen staff members, many of them residents of the local area, are
trained and dedicated to opening the new Super 8 and making a lasting and
positive first impression on this community.
    Superior Lodging Corp. of Calgary, Alberta is a partner in this project
and holds the master development rights for Super 8 Motels and Wingate Inns in
Canada. "We are very happy to participate in the introduction of this lovely
property to Ontario," said Superior Lodging President, Ian McAuley. "We are
confident that Super 8 Barrie will become a popular destination 'along the
way' for travelers to this region."

    With the addition of Super 8 Motel Barrie to its portfolio, Pacrim
Hospitality Services Inc., managing partner in the property, increases its
portfolio of managed hotels to 33 across Canada and the United States, totally
3800 hotel rooms and suites. Fifteen of those properties are flagged as
Super 8, "which gives our Barrie location the benefit and support from a
national group of sister properties," Ms. Rollason said.
