Cuyo vs. cuya

I wonder if there is an error in this question:

Este hotel, ________ inauguración fue ayer, va a recibir muchos turistas alemanes.

I think that the answer should be cuyo (because hotel is a masculine noun), but the Kwiziq answer on the test question is cuya.  Is this a mistake on Kwiziq's part, or am I not understanding something?

This question relates to:
Spanish lesson "Using cuyo, cuya, cuyos, cuyas to say whose + noun (relative pronoun)"

Agreement is with the possession, not the possessor, and inauguración is feminine.
