Novotel Hotels Introduce 'novation' Room Concept

Now available in the Toronto area at Novotel Mississauga and Novotel North York, this new concept marries the luxurious feel of finer European hotels with upgrades such as free WIFI (Wireless Internet).

The Novation concept represents a multi-million dollar investment by Accor North America to set a new standard in the mid-scale lodging segment. According to David O’Shaughnessy, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Accor Business & Leisure, “Through this new concept, Novotel will appeal to those travelers who don’t feel they should have to sacrifice sophistication and in-room conveniences for an affordable rate.”

What’s so innovative about Novation?*

A headboard contoured to the back makes reading and watching TV in bed more comfortable.
