Under the guidance of General Manager Terry Balfour, CanWest Hotel’s new Ramada Inn in Revelstoke is open and operating. The 4-storey hotel is located adjacent to busy Highway #1 and has 87 rooms.

Though the pool and waterslide are still under construction the rest of the hotel is operating and fully functioning. The hotel construction was fast-tracked by Kamloops’ Horizon North, who assembled pre-built modular units to erect the building on a fast-paced schedule. Construction began in early 2017.

Here’s how the new hotel is described on the company’s website: “On Trans-Canada Highway 1 near Glacier National Park and Mount Revelstoke. Join us at our Ramada Revelstoke hotel to access Glacier National Park and Mount Revelstoke National Park from the area’s main roadway, the Trans-Canada Highway 1. With 1,150 square feet of event space, our hotel features one practical meeting room that can be arranged to accommodate 60 conference or banquet guests. You can also request catering services or audio and visual equipment to effectively conduct your gathering. Plan your next special meeting or event with us. We also arrange great rates for groups — large or small.”

Earlier reports indicated that two Golden businessmen—Paul Duetsch, who owns Golden’s Rockwater Grill and the popular Whitetooth Bistro, as well as Mike Dhami, proprietor of the Ramada Inn and Days Inn in Golden—were the proponents of the new project.
