With humble beginnings, Sandman Hotels, Inns & Suites opened their first location over 45 years ago in Smithers, B.C. A passionate company that wanted to provide guests with quality hospitality experiences that were cozy, convenient, and comfortable, they grew and now have 43 Canadian properties, as well as a flagship location in Newcastle, UK.
Striving to be where communities need them the most, they naturally settled in the beautiful Okanagan Valley, where they provide easy access to stunning wine routes, hiking trails and lake-side retreats in the summer and snowy mountain terrain in the winter.
But that’s not all. Sandman Hotels, Inns & Suites have kept an eye to the future and are growing their family of hotels. Over the next three years, they will be expanding in Eastern Canada with hotels pending in Oakville and St. John’s.
Expansion in the east means Sandman will literally be located across Canada. But, before that journey, Sandman Signature Hotel & Suites Kamloops will open across from the Interior Savings Centre, home of the Kamloops Blazers. This beautiful six storey hotel will include 202 guest rooms, banquet and meeting rooms, a swimming pool, surface and underground parking and two on site restaurants.
Sandman Inns, Sandman Hotels, Sandman Signature and Sutton Group properties are oftentimes complemented by restaurant brands: Moxie’s, CHOP, Rockford, Bar One, Denny’s and Shark Club.
Finding room for growth and success wherever they put roots, the Sandman Hotel Group has managed to maintain the core of what started in Smithers all those years ago. Still proudly 100 % Canadian owned and operated, they’re guided by grassroots principles of good service and customer satisfaction.
With a wide range of rewards programs or tech-savvy mobile apps, Sandman Hotel Group is constantly looking to provide guests with the best service in every way possible. To learn more about their many preferred rates, programs, hot deals and apps, visit www.sandmanhotels.com.
