Homewood brand expands Canada portfolio

Homewood Suites
by Hilton has announced it is yet again increasing its international
expansion with the opening of its sixth property in Canada, located in
London, Ontario. The hotel is owned and managed by Manga Hotels Inc, based
in Ontario.

The five-story, 106-suite Homewood Suites London, Ontario hotel is
conveniently located in the center of London’s exciting business district
and close to nearby White Oaks Mall - the largest in Southwestern Ontario.
All suites have fully equipped kitchens, full sized refrigerators,
microwave ovens, coffeemakers and two phones. Iron and ironing board and
hair dryers are also standard in all rooms.

“With each new opening in Canada, Homewood Suites is expanding our
exceptional standards and commitment to providing the best possible hotel
experience for our guests on an international scale”, declared Rebecca
Wyatt, senior vice president of brand management.  “This has been a
milestone year for us and we’re especially excited about our continued
Canadian development.  In addition to the London opening, another Homewood
Suites is scheduled to open in Cambridge, Ontario in the third quarter of
this year.”

parks and beautiful freshwater beaches on Lake Erie and Huron - making it
an ideal destination for students and leisure or business travelers.

The London, Ontario opening announcement comes in a year that has seen the
