Choice Hotels Canada Debuts First Dual-branded Hotel

Flagship brands Comfort and Quality offered together in Kingston

Choice Hotels Canada opened the doors to its first dual-branded hotel: Quality Inn & Conference Centre and Comfort Suites Kingston Central in Kingston, Ont.

“We are so excited for the opening of these two properties and look forward to further serving the Kingston area,” said Brian Leon, president of Choice Hotels Canada. “In this instance, having two of our hotel brands side by side was the perfect fit for the community and we are thrilled to welcome the Springer Group of Companies into our extended family.”

The two hotels are adjacent to one another, with the shared reception desk and lobby area located in the Quality Inn & Conference Centre. In the future, the properties will also be connected by a planned underground tunnel for guests to travel between both buildings.

The Quality Inn & Conference Centre is the larger of the two properties with 100 guest rooms, several meeting rooms and a large conference space that can accommodate up to 400. There is also onsite guest laundry, a newly renovated indoor swimming pool and fitness centre. The Comfort Suites has 64 guestrooms, including some with balconies, as well as its own indoor swimming pool and business centre.

“We’re thrilled to be expanding our portfolio in Kingston and opening not one, but two hotels under such trusted and reputable banners,” said Michael Springer, president of Diamond Hotels, an affiliate of Springer Group of Companies. “We believe they will be well received by guests and locals and we look forward to the future and growing our relationship with Choice Hotels Canada”

Located at 33 Benson Street off Highway 401, the dual-branded property is near downtown Kingston, the St. Lawrence River, and several iconic institutions including Queen’s University and Royal Military College.
