EMERALD PARK, SK—Emerald Park, just east of Regina, is now home to Canada’s newest Sleep Inn, the first one in Western Canada. The brand, which entered Canada in 1996, has two other locations in Ontario. This is the first Canadian addition since 2000, and is owned by Souris Valley Lodging Inc.
As a newly-constructed Sleep Inn brand hotel, the 73-room property features the entirely new ‘designed to dream” experience. The concept aims to provide guests with a restful and stylish environment that features warm colours, fresh graphics and amenities that allow guests to awaken feeling well-rested. Some of the design highlights featured within the new hotel include:
o A new lobby design with warm, natural finishes, unique lighting features, and graphic accent wall.
o Guestrooms with accent walls, media boards with flat screen LCD TVs, sleek furniture lines, striking wood finishes, stylish yet comfortable bedding and eye-catching collages of black and white photography. All rooms come with a microwave and refrigerator.
o Spa-like baths feature chic freestanding vanities, modern wall sconces and accent walls.
o Indoor heated pool with a two-storey waterslide and hot tub, plus a fully equipped exercise room.
First launched in 2010, the prototype appeals to developers, with lower construction and operating costs than other midscale brands. The floor plan combines the lobby and breakfast room to take up a smaller footprint, while featuring easy-to-update accent walls and a neutral base to give the hotel a timeless look and feel.
The Sleep Inn brand continues to grow in Canada with plans underway to open another location in Saskatoon.
