Imagine the Biggest Hotel in The Valley Made New Again
By Robert Kennedy
OTTAWA VALLEY- The new ownership and management of The Best Western Pembroke Inn & Conference Centre are announcing the remodeling and upgrading of Ottawa Valley’s largest hotel and conference centre.
“We began with the parking area which now provides better parking arrangements for cars, motorcycles and snowmobiles” said Dale Gagne, General Manager. “Now we are focusing on our Conference Centre. First, conference rooms will undergo a make-over then we are going to have a contest aimed at renaming them. They have had the same names and look for over 20 years. Out with the old and in with the new!”
Gagne explains the sequence of renovations. “After the conference centre is completed, each and every guest room will be completely remodeled with new carpet, beds, paint, sinks and kitchenette. We are taking no shortcuts! You thought this hotel was good before….wait until you see it when we are finished. The best part is we are doing this without ANY interruptions to guests currently staying with us.”
Best Western Pembroke Inn and Conference Centre is the largest hotel and conference centre in Ottawa Valley. It has become well known to tourists, travelers, business people, wedding parties and event planners over the years for its amenities and robust facilities.
“We are really excited about the phases of remodeling that have been carefully planned around current and future guests.” Gagne stated with emphasis on current and future guests.
According to Gagne, they are leaving no stone unturned. Every area of this hotel will see some sort of remodeling…wall to wall…top to bottom.
All phases of remodeling are going to cost around 2 million dollars.
Summary of Remodeling
