A Kelowna-based hotel and resort chain has purchased the Comfort Inn and Suites property in Kamloops, which will reopen in the fall as the Prestige Kamloops Hotel.

Sale of the hotel at 1810 Rogers Pl. in Aberdeen to Prestige Hotels & Resorts was completed on May 31 and marks the first time the company has owned and operated a property in Kamloops, according to Amy Nunn, Prestige’s vice-president of sales and marketing.

Prestige purchased the property from Sunny Bachhal for an undisclosed sum.

Nunn said the 87-room hotel will be closed until the end of September as extensive renovations take place to its exterior, common areas, guest rooms and restaurant. When the hotel opens for business later this fall, it will become the Prestige Kamloops Hotel.

The company has 16 properties in 12 communities in B.C.

Prestige Hotels & Resorts president Terry Schneider said the company had been looking to expand to Kamloops for many years, noting the hotel was maintained well by previous owners, with planned renovations set to improve the property.

The hotel includes a pool, a hot tub and a waterslide area, as well as a fitness room

“We are excited to immediately embark on massive renovations that will completely transform the look and feel of the hotel,” Schneider said. “We believe that guests will be very impressed when the hotel re-opens this fall.”

The Prestige Kamloops Hotel will see a new restaurant operator, with the yet-to-be-named eatery in renovated space with a new menu and views of the city and valley. Nunn said the Comfort Inn had a breakfast room, but that space will be renovated and expanded to house a casual dining restaurant with family-friendly food, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. There will be indoor and patio service. The restaurant will not be part of any chain.

Guests who had previously booked a stay at the Comfort Inn for the summer have been contacted and relocated.
