Red Roof® Enters the Calgary, Alberta, Canada Market

January 18, 2019 // // Columbus, OH - Meeting the continuing and growing global demand for the brand, Red Roof® is expanding its presence into the Canadian market, with its first property in Calgary, Alberta. The company has partnered with FANS International Hospitality Group, an international hotel management company, to grow the brand beginning with the conversion of a former Travelodge hotel property at Calgary Airport into a Red Roof PLUS+ & Suites®. This is the first of multiple properties that Red Roof plans to convert in Canada, over the next five years.

"FANS International Hospitality Group is one of the most respected hospitality companies in Canada and partnering with them is the right decision for us," says Andrew Alexander, President Red Roof. "FANS and Red Roof share the same core values and business strategy and vision. We look forward to a productive collaboration as we continue to position the company internationally for long term profitable growth."

A substantial investment will be made to renovate and upgrade the property to 150 rooms and suites to Red Roof high quality standards and is slated to open in late Spring 2019. The property will not only have all of the PLUS+ upgrades and amenities but will also house an off-lobby restaurant, pool and will offer airport shuttle service, appealing to both the leisure and business traveler.

"Canada has always been an exciting frontier for Red Roof as the company continues its international growth and development," says Phil Hugh, Chief Development Officer, Red Roof. "Working with FANS International Hospitality Group, an established local partner, Red Roof is bringing our successful upscale economy model to this receptive market, offering guests what we know they want, a true value proposition."

Catering to the Canadian consumer and international travelers who are seeking more quality lodging choices at great value, Red Roof’s entry into the Calgary market, not only caters to the growing demand for economy hotels, but it also offers consumers an upscale economy product that provides comfort and convenience.

"Red Roof is a trusted, recognizable brand that travelers love," notes Alnoor Nanji, President of FANS International Hospitality Group and current Chairman of Jubilee Hospitality Association of Canada, "Red Roof is the perfect brand to bring to the Canadian market with high brand awareness and a customer base who is familiar with the attributes and benefits of an enhanced affordable lodging experience."

Fifteen minutes from downtown Calgary, this Red Roof PLUS+ & Suites property is geographically convenient to popular attractions including the Calgary Stampede and the beautiful, iconic Banff National Park.
