This 80-room Holiday Inn Express & Suites was the first to open in Canada with the Holiday Inn Express brand’s new formula design solution.
The 50,000 square foot hotel is a five storey wood building with 335 surface and underground parking spaces. The hotel is a part of Westridge Landing Centre, a mixed-use residential and commercial community that includes 68,000 square feet of retail and offices and 63 residential rental apartments.
The building features LED lighting throughout, high efficiency HVAC systems, low flush toilets and faucets, a micro irrigation watering system, low maintenance stucco and metal finishes, recycled content gypsum board and insulation and low VOC latex paint. Best practices were used for recycling and waste management during construction. The hotel participates in a Green Engage environmental impact program. The goal is to achieve energy savings of up to 25% on average for other hotels in the industry. There is a program for amenity recycling and waste management that includes guest and staff awareness and participation in green initiatives.
