Lexington Enters Canada for the First Time

CLEVELAND—Lexington by Vantage, part of Vantage Hospitality Group, announced the opening of its first-ever property in Canada—a Lexington Inn & Suites in Windsor, Ontario.

“Lexington has been making its mark in the United States, so it was inevitable that the brand would expand into Canada. We are very pleased that it’s Kirti and his team in Windsor who are our first Canadian members. They truly know the hospitality industry and what it takes to be successful, and we welcome them with open arms,” said Bill Hanley, group president of Lexington by Vantage.
