Days Inn in Cranbrook is back in business after an extensive $2 million renovation.

Realstar Hospitality took over the hotel 600 Cranbrook Street North in May, 2015, and this week hosted a grand reopening.

One of the first things owner Alnoor Nathoo decided to do was renovate.

“The property remained closed for just about a month in order for us to renovate both the hotel exterior and interior,” said Nathoo. “In order to provide ideal accommodations for both business and leisure travellers alike, we knew a full overhaul was required.”

Upgrades include a renovated lobby, fitness centre and meeting room, as well as new furniture, lighting and carpeting throughout the hotel. Guestroom upgrades include new paint, contemporary dark wood furniture, beds with triple sheeting, along with new tile and tubs in the bathroom. The hotel exterior has undergone a complete reface.

The hotel features 89  guest rooms, free Daybreak Cafe breakfast, an outdoor heated pool free parking and close proximity to various dining options. An on-site guest laundry facility is expected to be complete by end of October.

The Cranbrook location is Nathoo’s third Days Inn hotel. His other two hotels, — Days Inn & Suites in Cochrane, opened in 2009 ,and Days Inn in Calgary Northwest, opened in 2012.
