Today, Hotel Equities ("HE") announced the grand opening of the Courtyard by Marriott Nanaimo, a 172-room hotel in downtown Nanaimo, British Columbia. Hotel Equities partnered with Utah-based commercial real estate leader PEG Companies ("PEG") and Petroglyph Development Group to manage the new hotel.

The new Marriott hotel offers industry-leading amenities including a charming street-level café, large pool, and all-inclusive fitness center. Design features include angular windows with street-side views, stone panels, and a façade of exterior colors allowing it to blend well within the environment and existing buildings in the area. Vancouver-based sustainable construction firm, Nexii, has generated efficiencies in the buildout by utilizing its innovative construction methodology, saving both money and time. As part of PEG's design plan, the new Courtyard pays homage to Nanaimo's cultural heritage through Snuneymuxw-inspired décor and serves as a symbol of the rich cultural heritage of the Snuneymuxw people.

The nine-story hotel is conveniently situated adjacent the Vancouver Island Conference Centre, and between Casino Nanaimo and the Nanaimo Museum. Nanaimo is well-positioned for further growth with its easy access to Vancouver and growing tourism industry.

City officials have maintained that the hotel is crucial for the downtown revitalization and success of the neighboring conference center. The Marriott is expected to spur economic growth as the first major hotel brand in the area.
