Owned by Beauward Shopping Centres, the 205-room hotel will be connected to the new 21,367 sqm congress centre of Saint-Hyacinthe and Galeries Saint-Hyacinthe.
Slated to open by the end of 2017, the hotel will be spread over 16 floors, with facilities including a club lounge, swimming pool, fitness centre and meeting spaces.
Located in the Montérégie region near Montréal, Saint-Hyacinthe offers a blend of town and country. The region is known as the agri-food capital of Québec and the first Canadian member of the international Association of Science Parks.
"Sheraton Saint-Hyacinthe represents another strong addition to the expanding Sheraton portfolio in the province of Quebec," said Bob Jacobs, vice president of brand management, Sheraton North America. "As one of the most global hotel brands in Starwood’s portfolio, Sheraton continues to experience accelerated growth in key markets. Fuelled by strong partners like Galeries St-Hyacinthe we are working toward our goal of adding 150 new hotels by the year 2020 across the globe, and the signing of Sheraton Saint-Hyacinthe is an important step in building that momentum in Quebec."
