Revelstoke could soon be home to another major hotel as Can-West Hotels owned by Paul Deutsch, Jora Dhami and Manjit Dahmi are seeking development approval from the City to proceed with construction of a new 87-room Fairfield Inn – which is a sub-brand of the Marriott Hotel chain.

According the development application to the City of Revelstoke, the six-storey structure would be built along the Trans-Canada Highway, next to the Ramada. The newly proposed hotel would include a buffet/dining room, fully equipped fitness area, outdoor hot tub and outdoor patio.

The recently constructed and adjacent Ramada is also owned and operated by Paul Deutsch, Jora Dhami and Manjit Dahmi of Can-West Hotels.

Here is the proposal that went before Revelstoke City council:

“1750 Trans Canada Highway is a large lot which currently contains the Ramada Hotel, constructed over 2016-17. A subdivision application has been made for the site, and the westerly 1.5 hectare portion of the lot, containing the Ramada Hotel, its parking facilities, and future commercial retail unit development is to be separated from the parcel.The remaining 1.3 hectare portion on the east side of the property is proposed to contain a second hotel, the subject of a new Development Permit application currently being presented to the APC. The entire property is zoned CD-09, which permits a range of highway oriented commercial uses, is designated as “Highway Commercial” in the City’s Official Community Plan, and is contained within Development Permit Area C - Scenic Corridor.”

Similar to the nearby Ramada the proponents are planning to utilize a “quick-build” construction method using modular, prefab units constructed off-site which are then shipped to Revelstoke for rapid installation and assembly.
