The owners of Pemberton Valley Lodge are pleased to announce that they have awarded the hotel management contract to Bellstar Hotels & Resorts. The 85-suite hotel is located in the heart of the Pemberton Valley, just 20 minutes north of B.C.'s iconic 4-season mountain resort - Whistler Blackcomb. With the addition of the Pemberton Valley Lodge, Bellstar's portfolio of boutique and luxury hotels and resorts continues to grow in Western Canada's key tourism destinations, including the Okanagan Valley, Rocky Mountains and Coastal regions.

"Bellstar has a proven record of delivering a disciplined approach to operations and proactive sales and marketing to drive market share and enhance revenues," said MacKenzie.

"Independent management contracts in strategic locations are major opportunities for our growth," said Jon Zwickel, Executive VP of Bellstar. "Bellstar is a turn-key solution for hotel owners seeking to add value, strengthen their business and increase incremental profits."
