Under the agreement, Concord will continue to operate the properties.

In addition, Concord will invest $1m in each of its remaining Ontario hotels, with completion by the end of the first quarter 2012.

The hotels, which were developed by Concord, include the 132-suite Residence Inn by Marriott Toronto Vaughan, the 94-room Courtyard by Marriott Mississauga Airport/Corporate Centre West, the 133-suite Residence Inn Mississauga Airport/Corporate Centre West and the 136-room and suite Courtyard by Marriott Hamilton.
