Kamloops Accommodation Association glad to hear of Rocky Mountaineer Rail tour expansion plans.
President Maike Mayden says with Rocky Mountaineer planning to double their guests to around 200 thousand by 2022, it’ll bring some big benefits for local hotels.
“For our members, these types of announcements assist in their expansion and development strategies, such as renovations, expansions, and new builds, so increasing hotel numbers. The last time Rocky Mountaineer did such a large expansion, going from 3 nights a week to 6 nights, we saw many new hotels being built, and renovations happening.”
That being said, Maike says, there will likely need to be a few more rooms to accommodate all the extra guests, but plans for 2 or 3 more hotels are on the way.
