Choice Hotels Canada has announced the opening of the Halifax Tower Hotel & Conference Centre, featuring space for both leisure and corporate travel, as well as large group events.
Located at 5 Lakelands Boulevard in the Bayer’s Lake region of Halifax, the boutique hotel is adjacent to another Choice Hotels property, the Comfort Hotel. Both properties are owned by Stephanie Giannoulis and the new Ascend property will be overseen by the same team of operators.
“We’ve long had the desire to expand in our area since we opened our original 73 rooms in 2011,” says Giannoulis, owner of both the Comfort Hotel and Halifax Tower Hotel & Conference Centre. “I am especially proud to see this project completed, as it’s been an evolution of development — from my father’s restaurant, Canadiana, to the Comfort Hotel and now the Halifax Tower Hotel & Conference Centre. We are so excited to begin welcoming guests.”
There is a conference centre with four meeting spaces, accommodating social gatherings, weddings and corporate meetings, including an imperial ballroom for up to 320 people. The 180-seat onsite restaurant, Le Rouge, is open for lunch and dinner. There is an indoor heated pool and hot tub, fitness centre, electric vehicle charging stations, as well as a games lounge.
“Halifax is an important market for us and we were delighted when the Comfort team in Bayer’s Lake wanted to build a new Ascend Collection Hotel property,” says Brian Leon, CEO, Choice Hotels Canada. “Their expertise, knowledge of the local market and attention to detail will undoubtedly ensure the success of this beautiful new addition.”
