The new hotel and parkade will be located next to the terminal expansion at YLW, with construction planned for 2025. The development includes both the six-storey, 245-room Sutton Place Hotel Kelowna and seven-storey 1,000-stall parkade. The Sutton Place Hotel Kelowna “will offer guests and locals access to exquisite amenities such as business conference facilities, an indoor leisure and fitness centre, full-service valet, bell-hop, and concierge, along with an onsite full-service restaurant” according to the company.
“Kelowna and the Okanagan Valley is an increasingly more important economic region,” said Tom Gaglardi, CEO at Northland Properties with the announcement. “The addition of The Sutton Place Hotel and new airport parkade speaks to the vibrancy of the region. We are grateful to have been given this opportunity and look forward to providing first-class onsite accommodation and assisting in the expansion of airport customer parking.”
The work toward a hotel and parkade at YLW began in 2021, when an expression of interest was issued by Kelowna’s HM Commercial for YLW. Northland Properties was the successful proponent.
“We are thrilled to partner with Northland Properties Corporation to bring The Sutton Place Hotel Kelowna and parkade to YLW,” said Sam Samaddar, YLW’s CEO. “This project will enhance the passenger experience and create more economic opportunities for our region. The new hotel and parkade will offer convenience, comfort, and quality for Okanagan travelers and visitors alike.”
Northland Properties is the owner of The Sutton Place Hotels, along with other brands Sandman Hotel Group, Denny’s Canada, Moxies, Chop Steakhouse & Bar, Shark Club, Revelstoke Mountain Resort, Grouse Mountain Resort, Northland Asset Management Company and the Dallas Stars NHL team.
