Life is now again rosy. We have a building in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and are providing a much needed competitive boost to our fair city. Having been closed for the last 18 months after our building "died" has made me a stronger guy. Yeah right, hair loss with more grey coming everyday due to insurance, litigation, searching for a new home. But we already have 5 of our former staff coming back and will have the same great atmosphere as last time. Except this time much, much less renovations to do. The hotel we are taken over had a large renovation done less than 2 years ago but was owned by a group that had no hotel experience or patience. So our guests will benefit. Rooms will range from 4 and 6 bed dorms and private rooms of double beds and queen beds. If you have never been to our part of North America, I lay out the welcome mat. At the moment Edmonton is getting in the press as the closest city to the Alberta Oil Sands. Not necessarily great press but hey, economy is still humming along and we love our city.
