Residents of The Esplanade and surrounding neighbourhood were reeling Friday after learning a fourth location within an 800-metre radius will become a homeless hotel in just over two weeks. On Feb. 22, the city will start moving homeless clients into the tony Novotel hotel on The Esplanade where rooms typically go for $150 a night. The lease is until the end of the year with the possibility of an extension, city officials confirmed.
