New Brunswick’s Venerable Algonquin Resort Could Become a Marriott

Marriott is in talks to buy the historic Algonquin Resort in St.-Andrews-by-the-Sea, New Brunswick, CBC reports.

In the deal being discussed, the resort would carry the Marriott name but would be owned and managed jointly by US-based hotel “turnaround specialist” New Castle Hotels & Resorts and Halifax-based hotel management company Southwest Properties.

The Algonquin’s contract with Fairmont Resorts ended in 2011 and the luxury hotel brand chose not to renew.

The 234-room resort on the Bay of Fundy, a former Canadian Pacific Railway hotel opened in 1889, has hosted Prince Charles and Princess Diana and other celebrities.
