VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, April 11, 2008 – Boutique Hotels & Resorts of British Columbia has added an exciting new destination to its growing portfolio of luxury hotels and resorts with the addition of the Nelsen Lodge in Revelstoke, British Columbia. The first phase of development for Revelstoke Mountain Resort, the new 221-suite Nelsen Lodge is scheduled to open its first of its three buildings with 59 suites in fall 2008 and the remaining suites opening over the next twelve months.  

“With the abundance of snow and summer activities, Revelstoke is poised to become one of the top four season mountain resort destinations in North America,” says Mike Duggan, president of Boutique Hotels & Resorts of British Columbia. “We are thrilled to be a part of this exciting development and in setting the bar for luxury accommodation in Revelstoke.”

Raymond Letkeman and Associates, one foremost resort architectural firm in North America, designed Nelsen Lodge in a contemporary mountain alpine architectural style with every suite offering outstanding views across the Columbia River to the glacier-peaked Monashee Mountains. Crafted with natural exterior materials that melds into the landscape, the hotel blends inviting natural materials such as leather, granite and rich wood stains with stainless steel appliances and brushed nickel fixtures and hardware.

The spectacular full-service resort and breathtaking surroundings will be serviced by the renowned hospitality that Boutique Hotels & Resorts of British Columbia has grown to be known for.
