Marriott's big expansion in Alberta - 5 new hotels opening this year

For the past two or so years Alberta has been hurting. Our economy isn't doing great and there are lots of people who are unemployed. Despite this it hasn't stopped Marriott Hotels from making a big push into the Alberta market with their hotels. I'm guessing some of these if not most of them were planned before the market tanked and also one takes into account what the long term looks like and as with all economic cycles, the Alberta market will rebound. There is already talk that things are getting better as more drilling rigs are operating this month than last year at this time.

Marriott is set to open at least 10 hotels this year in Canada and 5 of those are in Alberta alone along with at least one more in 2019.

The 5 hotels set to open this year in Alberta are:

  • Opening Date: March 7, 2017
  • SPG Category: 4
  • Special Opening Offer: Double Starpoints for stays until March 31st!
  • The hotel is a fair distance from the airport compared to some other hotels. Is close to Sunridge Mall and other shopping. Easy access to downtown, Calgary Zoo and Telus Spark Science Centre.

  • Opening Date: August 2017
  • The hotel is well situated for trips to West Edmonton Mall with the ability to drive directly into downtown Edmonton on Stony Plain Road. 


Four Points by Sheraton Edmonton West
  • Opening Date: August 2017
  • The hotel is well situated for trips to West Edmonton Mall with the ability to drive directly into downtown Edmonton on Stony Plain Road.  

  • Opening Date: April 11, 2017
  •  The hotel is across the street from Grande Prairie's East Link Centre which is the city's main recreation centre with pools, waterslides, simulated surfing, running track and lots more! 

Of course stays at these hotels will earn your base Starpoints and bonus Starpoints with the current Double Take promotion of Double Starpoints will work at the Calgary, Grande Prairie and Sherwood Park locations as that promotion runs until April 15th. 

You'll also earn 2 Starpoints per dollar spent at these locations with the number one ranked Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card or 5 Marriott Rewards Points per dollar spent with the Marriott Rewards Premier Visa Card.

Are you traveling within or to Alberta this year? Do these new hotels intrigue you and make the list of your hotel considerations for those stays?
