About MasterBUILT

Achieving Together

Changing the Hotel Landscape

Since establishing, MasterBUILT Hotels has been laser-focused on their vision of becoming a leader in the entrepreneurial development of select-service lodging within Canada.

In April 2011, the MasterBUILT team forever altered the Canadian hotel landscape by acquiring the master territorial development rights to the Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham brand for Canada. Since acquiring the rights, they have committed to opening 75 hotels by 2036 and made it their mission to develop an iconic brand beloved by guests and owners alike. With over 25 Microtel hotels scheduled to open by the end of 2022, MasterBUILT is well on the way to fulfilling that mandate. The explosive growth of the Microtel brand and industry reputation as one of the most dynamic new hotel concepts in Canada is due in large part to strong development partnerships and direct corporate investment by both MasterBUILT and their private equity partners.

As the proud recipients of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award for 6 years running, the MasterBUILT team is confident that they have developed best-in-class systems and structures to cement their reputation as industry leaders moving forward.
