“We are thrilled to add Skyline Vacation Club to our affiliate network, and we look forward to adding to our members’ choices of high-quality properties in sought-after Canadian destinations,” said Gordon Gurnik, president, RCI. “Skyline is fine hotelier and developer with wonderful properties that has decided to enter the vacation ownership market, and we are very pleased that they have made us their exchange partner of choice as they take on this exciting new venture. Our team of vacation ownership experts in Canada identified the Skyline properties as ideal vacation spots for members, and we are proud to have this club on board.”
The new vacation club makes use of Skyline’s existing properties, and has launched first in the brand’s Pantages Hotel Toronto Centre.
