About Us

In March 2004, Canadian Lodging News emerged on the Canadian scene, quickly developing a reputation for Timely Accurate News delivered with impact. CLN has a solid readership with innovative departments such as Openings, Sales and Renos, Design Features, Before and After, the most comprehensive People section in the business, and insightful editorials. We travel to provincial hotel meetings across Canada. We go to hotel brand conferences, developing contacts, news sources and solid relationships. In short, we are the No. 1 news source in the Canadian Lodging industry.

Canadian Lodging News is online only, offering an electronic newsletter 22 times per year on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, a website that is constantly updated, and a pervasive social media presence. More news, more information, more of the sections readers enjoy — but faster delivery to a targeted, committed hotel industry audience.

We pride ourselves on providing essential news for the hospitality industry. Whether providing event coverage or comprehensive reporting, the Canadian Lodging News editorial team engages with all aspects of the industry. From coast to coast, the company gives readers the information they need to help them succeed.
