QUEBEC CITY — Tribute Portfolio, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., announced on March 24 its debut in Canada with the signing of Hotel PUR Quebec, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, owned by Hotel PUR Quebec LP and managed by Crescent Hotels and Resorts Canada Company.
Located in Quebec City’s burgeoning Saint Roch neighborhood, Hotel PUR Quebec will undergo a full renovation of all 242 guestrooms and suites before joining the Tribute Portfolio system in early 2017. Until then, the property will run as a Starwood affiliate hotel
“Saint Roch has undergone a recent revitalization, seeing an energizing influx of new restaurants, locally owned boutiques and innovative businesses, all of which have inspired a true indie neighbourhood vibe,” said Dave Marr, global brand leader for Tribute Portfolio in a release. “Hotel PUR Quebec is filled with design touches and intriguing culinary options that truly exemplify the essence of Tribute Portfolio, and will undoubtedly resonate with our SPG members around the world.”
Inspired by charming shops and Parisian-style cafes, Hotel PUR Quebec’s design reflects an authentic northern Quebecois-style ambiance of comfort mixed with contemporary flair. Guests can partake in American/Asian cuisine at Table, the hotel’s full-service restaurant, and relax at the hotel’s indoor pool and sauna.
Entering its sixth country just a month ahead of its first anniversary, Tribute Portfolio continues to maintain its position as having the fastest takeoff of any Starwood hotel brand, ever.
“It’s been truly exciting to be part of Saint Roch’s resurgence, and we are thrilled to help drive even more awareness around this emerging neighbourhood through our strong relationship with Starwood,” said Anthony Cohen, executive vice-president and partner, Crescent Hotels & Resorts. “Hotel PUR Quebec blends the eccentricities and independent spirit of the Tribute Portfolio brand, delivering an old-world spirit with a modern twist for travelers seeking to experience a newer side of Quebec City.”
