It's hard to believe it has been almost six months since we posted our series on new hotel openings in Canada! We did a sweep of the new Marriott openings as a few of the locations were supposed to be opening right around now. As is the case with many new hotels however those dates have been pushed back slightly but it does look like we have firm dates in place now for four of the six new locations!
