Val-d’Or, Quebec (November 14, 2023) – Today CREECO announced an exciting new hospitality investment in the community of Val-d’Or, Quebec, at the annual conference of the Secretariat to the Cree Nation Abitibi-Témiscamingue Economic Alliance: Forging the Path Forward.
Over the next 18 months, CREECO will invest over $10-million into its award-winning Quality Inn & Suites property on Rue de l’Escale. This will include both an extensive renovation to the existing property, as well as an impressive 42-room, 3-storey addition.
“Today’s announcement marks the beginning of a significant investment in what will become the largest hotel property in the region,” says Derrick Neeposh, president, CREECO. “This is part of our ongoing commitment to provide value through development and self-sufficiency of the Cree Nation, while maintaining long-term-profitability.”
Guest rooms will be refreshed by replacing wall coverings, floor coverings and various equipment and accessories. The Indigenous influence will bring nature into its design with a view to sustainable development. The main entrance, meeting rooms and breakfast room will also be refreshed with new finishes and decorative elements.
The expansion project, slated to begin in summer 2024, will consist of the addition of 42 new guest rooms, including multiple extended stay suites with closed bedrooms and fully equipped kitchens. In addition, the property will add 1,200 square feet of conference rooms, a larger guest laundry room and fitness room. The expansion will also include a common area where guests can relax and interact. A new rooftop terrace will offer views of the boreal skyline, as well as magnificent sunsets.
“When it comes to guest service and satisfaction, this is one of the top-performing hotels in the Choice Hotels Canada system. We are fully supportive of CREECO’s decision to further invest in the property, which will have a truly meaningful impact to the local economy,” says Brian Leon, CEO, Choice Hotels Canada.
Quality Inn & Suites Val-d’Or currently has 82 luxurious rooms and suites and is a top-rated and highly-awarded hotel in the region. Since opening in 2011, the hotel has earned numerous awards including annual Guest Hospitality Awards, which are given to the top 3% of Choice Hotels in Canada. It has also won the top honour of Canadian Hotel of the Year and International Hotel of the Year twice.
