Pacific Inn Resort in South Surrey is getting a major upscale makeover and new branding.
The ‘Pink Palace’ property is located at 1160 King George Boulevard, next to Highway 99 and just two kilometres away from Peace Arch US-Canada border crossing.
Over the next two years, it will undergo an extensive interior and exterior renovation at a cost of $28 million.
Upon reopening, the renovated hotel will be home to the first DoubleTree by Hilton in the Lower Mainland.
The hotel shuttered its doors earlier this week in advance of the construction that is planned.
Pacific Inn Resort was completed in 1992, and it has 150 hotel rooms and about 10,000-sq-ft of meeting and event space within approximately 210,000-sq-ft of floor area. It also features an impressive covered glass-covered courtyard with guest amenities such as a swimming pool.
The property changed hands in 2015 in a deal worth $11 million, which is also the latest assessed value by BC Assessment.
Last year, the City of Surrey also approved a mixed-use, 30-storey tower near SkyTrain’s King George Station with a 112-room Hampton by Hilton hotel property.
