AMOS, QC—Choice Hotels Canada announced the development
of a four-floor, 77-room Quality Inn in Quebec on Dec. 16.

Scheduled to open in June on the outskirts of Amos, QC, the
Quality Inn & Conference Centre will be located on the Abitibiwinni First Nation
reserve of Pikogan. This is the first Quality hotel in Amos and is also the
latest addition to the province, which has been a focus for the brand with more
than 20 hotels. The previous Quebec property, Quality Inn Rouyn-Noranda, opened
in October.

“This is the first new hotel to enter this market in 30
years, so developing this property is an opportunity we're very excited about,”
Marc St-Gelais, franchise development director for Choice Hotels Canada, said
in a release. “The Quality brand has been well-received in the province and we're
committed to growing the momentum by taking the necessary steps to ensure the
Amos location satisfies the demand in the area.”

Based on its location, integration into the community is
a focus. The hotel's ownership group, Gestion Hôtelière Pikogan, is established
in the area and associated with the Council of the First Nation Abitibiwinni.

“We're thrilled to be joining the Choice Hotels family
and to be bringing a Quality hotel into this market,” Maxime Vollant, general manager
of the Abitibiwinni First Nation Council, said in the release. “It's an established
and well-respected brand and we are confident that it will address the needs of
travellers to our community.”

The full service hotel will feature an onsite restaurant
with seating for 150, two meeting rooms, a large conference centre, a business
and fitness centre and an indoor pool.
