Colliers served as the exclusive agent to Royal Host Inc. in the sale of three hotels in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, which closed as a portfolio transactions to Airline Hotels in August 2011. The sales included the acquisition of three Country Inn & Suites in Regina and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, as well as Winnipeg, Manitoba with a combined 229 rooms. The assets were well received by the investment community during the marketing process with interest expressed by a variety of local and regional private investors and national hotel investment companies and institutional investors.
