Guelph’s lodge tax now in impact
A new tax on the city’s hotel rooms is now in effect, with money going toward bringing more people to Guelph.
As of Sept. 1, the City of Guelph will be collecting what is called a municipal accommodation tax, amounting to between $4 and $8 per room per night for any stay less than 30 days.
The new levy, approved by council earlier this year, “provides funding to support the city’s efforts to provide programs and initiatives that will elevate Guelph as a destination of choice,” according to a post on the city’s website.
When council was debating the new tax earlier this year, city staff said it is expected to generate between $500,000 and $850,000 annually.
