Visitors planning a Brandon stay this summer and beyond officially have one more accommodation option to choose from with news today that Brandon’s upcoming Holiday Inn Express is now pre-selling rooms for its soon-to-be 19th Street-facing hotel.
Advanced bookings are initially being accepted for nights between June 26, 2020 and January 27, 2021 at the hotel chain’s website as well as its toll free number. Rooms showing on the website as available for booking range from one King or two Queen standard at a pre-tax rate of what appears to initially commonly be $145.01 to a one King suite at $154.13 when choosing the advanced purchase, non-refundable option and booking as a member of the chain’s IHG Rewards Club. A King accessible room is also listed. Slightly higher rates offer free cancellation with no deposit required.
As rates in the industry are generally known to fluctuate please verify costs for room type and dates of choice via the hotel’s website.
Hotel bookings in Brandon come with a $3 flat fee per night accommodation tax.
In addition to the chosen type of bed and space, all rooms show as being equipped with a 49-inch TV, high speed internet access, refrigerator, microwave and Keurig coffee maker. All available room types are listed as non-smoking. Amenities for the hotel itself are to include a swimming pool, hot tub, continental breakfast, health/fitness centre and business centre.
Construction began last winter after demolition of the Western Motel at the same site. As work continues, the hotel took another meaningful step towards preparing for opening on Tuesday with the advertising of positions for General Manager, Director of Sales, Executive Housekeeper and Guest Service manager. Approximately 35 are expected to be employed in total.
Though dates available for advanced booking begin June 26, a hotel representative has indicated that an early June opening is currently anticipated. The 6-storey, 116-room Brandon hotel will be located at 1148 18th Street with a West-facing main entrance off of 19th street.
