    Marriott International, Inc. is thrilled to announce the addition of the new Renaissance Edmonton Airport Hotel to its portfolio in Canada. When opened, the hotel will represent the first Renaissance Hotel to open in Alberta. Marriott International currently operates 74 hotels in Canada representing nine brands in its global portfolio, which includes eighteen brands.The newly constructed hotel will be owned and operated by Platinum Investments Ltd., and is scheduled to open in the summer of 2013. The property was originally scheduled to open under the Courtyard by Marriott brand but will now be fully redesigned to reflect Renaissance Hotels, a full-service lifestyle hospitality brand. In order to complete this transformation, Platinum Investments Ltd. has invested substantial capital into the project.

    Renaissance Hotels was acquired by Marriott International in 1997 and quickly became one of the most popular brands within the company’s portfolio. The brand’s inspiration – Live Life to Discover – places an emphasis on profiling local music, art, and entertainment through its signature RLife LIVE program, while also encouraging travellers to take the time to explore the hidden gems of the community through its NAVIGATOR program.

    From a construction perspective, the hotel will feature modular solid wall construction that virtually eliminates noise transfer between suites, from the hallways, and from the airfield. The windows feature triple glazed, argon filled bomb blast quality glass that will block any aircraft noise.

    The hotel design will feature more functional public space similar in size to EIA’s new Central Hall for mingling, relaxing and gathering. The hotel will offer 213 rooms, including a presidential suite. Additionally, it will also offer 20,000 square feet of meeting and special event space.
