The company is building a 133-room Marriott Residence Inn in Moncton and a 163-room Hampton Inn & Suites in Dartmouth. Partnering in the enterprise is New Castle Hotels & Resorts, who will operate the properties scheduled to open in June 2008 and spring 2009 respectively.
The hotels are two of the most recent initiatives by Southwest who developed and operate the award-winning Bishop’s Landing on the Halifax waterfront.
Founded in 1952 by Simon Spatz, Southwest is headed today by his son, Jim. The company’s more than 1,200 residential and commercial properties can be found in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland. Southwest also has a national presence as the largest shareholder of Premiere Executive Suites.
As Southwest continues to grow – in 2007 it realized over $30 million in revenue – the company has drawn upon resourcefulness, innovation and a familiar teaching: treat others as you would have them treat you.
