Toronto, ON (July 2022) - Realstar Hospitality, a unique player in Canada’s hotel industry, is celebrating a significant milestone. June 1st marked 30 years since the company first started franchising the Days Inn brand in Canada.

The Toronto-based company, a division of Realstar Hotel Services Corp., acquired the Days Inn licensing agreement in June 1992 with 19 hotels. Under the stewardship of Realstar Hospitality, this upscale economy brand has grown to now include over 105 independently owned and operated hotels across Canada.

“Over the years, we have carefully and selectively established the brand consisting of first-rate hotels and an engaged ownership group,” said Irwin Prince, President & COO, Realstar Hospitality. “An emphasis on quality and consistency makes the brand a continual winner with franchisees and guests alike.”

Key to this rapid expansion was the creation of three new construction prototypes, inclusive of interior design concepts, which resulted in solid success and the addition of new hotels under the Days Inn brand. Its franchises cover a wide range of urban, airport and resort properties in primary and secondary markets across Canada.

“After 30 years of amazing Days Inn achievements across Canada, it’s clear Realstar Hospitality delivers an unrivaled level of service and a distinctive support system focused on their franchisees’ continued success,” said Geoffrey A. Ballotti, president and chief executive officer, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “Representing excellence in franchising, Irwin and his team have effectively grown and elevated the Days Inn brand in Canada with a focus on delivering great guest experiences that will ensure we enjoy many more remarkable years together.”

A bright take on travel, Days Inn focuses on the little things that surprise and delight guests to help them enjoy their stay. As one of Canada’s leading hotel chains, Days Inn by Wyndham is a well-recognized brand to travellers worldwide for comfortable accommodations and convenient locations.

“The progress towards our goal of 115+ locations across the country is very encouraging. With another few hotels on the books and numerous other projects on the horizon, the brand continues to be well-positioned for robust growth,” added Prince.
