KEMPTVILLE,
Ont — North Grenville mayor David Gordon is all in favour of the new Comfort
Inn & Suites coming to his community. 
He has said that the 74-room property, slated to open in March 2019,
will bring economic benefits to the municipality.  

There will be more rooms available for
festivals such as the Kemptville Live Music Festival, sporting tournaments and
the hospital, he told the Kemptville Advance recently. He added that more
conferences will be possible, thanks to the addition of a new hotel.

“Instead
of travelling to Ottawa or Brockville to find a larger hotel, guests will have
the option of staying in North Grenville, which will directly benefit local
merchants, retailers and restaurants,” said Matt Gilmer, economic development officer for
North Grenville.
“With this new development, we can offer our visitors a number of unique
accommodation options including inns, bed and breakfasts, a boutique hotel and
a large hotel.”

Construction
of the hotel will begin this spring. It will be located in the Kemptville
Gateway Centre, on County Road 43 at the Highway 416 interchange across from
the new Starbucks location. Rosewater Management Group Ltd. is developing the
centre.

In
addition to the 74  guestrooms, the hotel
will have meeting facilities, an indoor pool, and fitness facilities. Harb
Kaler, who is currently building another Comfort Inn & Suites in Goderich,
Ont., is the developer involved with the project.

Choice
Hotels Canada plans to open six new Comfort Inn & Suites by 2019, four of
which will be located in Ontario. 

“We are
delighted to announce a new Comfort Inn & Suites will be joining the
brand’s 147 hotels across Canada,” said Brian Leon, managing director at Choice
Hotels Canada.

 “The new build Comfort format has been
exceptionally well-received by our guests and the new hotel in Kemptville will
be no exception.”
