Baghel also noted that there are six
associates who have been at the hotel since the doors first opened in
1974. 

“We’re honoured to be celebrating the ruby
anniversary at The Westin Prince. Over the years, the city has grown
exponentially, yet the hotel remains cradled on 15 acres of beautiful parkland
and we’re the only hotel in Ontario to receive AAA Four Diamond Status for 39
consecutive years. I would like to
extend heartiest congratulations to all of our dedicated associates for taking
such great care of our guests and local visitors,” he said.

A couple who were married at the Westin Prince 40 years ago were on hand for the celebrations. They renewed their vows and the Westin Prince recreated their wedding dinner for the couple and their family including children and grandchildren.
