Sandman Hotels celebrates 40 years

Sandman Hotels, Inns & Suites will be marking its landmark 40th
birthday at all of its 32 properties across the country.Friends and
guests are invited to grab a bite to eat, share in some fun and join
in on the afternoon celebrations with an opportunity to win some
great prizes.

In 1967, Bob Gaglardi had the vision to build a chain of clean, 
comfortable and affordable hotels in locations throughout Western
Canada. With a loan of $5,000 co-signed by his father, Gaglardi
opened his first Sandman Inn in Smithers, British Columbia. Four
decades later, Sandman has built a solid reputation known for its
service and loyalty, and is the fastest growing privately-owned
hospitality company in the country.

As part of its birthday celebrations, Sandman Hotels is offering
special anniversary rates starting at $89. Each guest who takes
advantage of Sandman’s anniversary offering will win an instant prize
that includes digital cameras, Petro-Canada gas cards, Moxie’s gift
cards, Denny’s gift cards and much more. The one lucky guest who
spots Mr. Sandman during their stay will have the opportunity to
drive away with a 2007 Pontiac Torrent or $10,000 in cash.
