Delta Hotels® Doubles Growth; Global Gateway in Shanghai Leads the Way

Delta Hotels by Marriott announced today an aggressive growth plan that aims to double the brand’s growth in the next two years, following the full-service hotel brand’s acquisition by Marriott International (NASDAQ: MAR) in 2015. Then at 30 properties solely in Canada, the brand’s rapid ascension now totals more than 40 open properties, and an additional 20 additional signed pipeline properties including new entries into Asia and the U.S, making Delta Hotels one of the fastest growing brands in the Marriott International portfolio.

The Delta Hotels brand encompasses a rich Canadian history, making it a key piece of the Marriott International’s premium portfolio. With 20 signed hotels in the pipeline, Marriott International is poised to grow Delta’s hospitality globally to major gateway cities including Dallas, Shanghai and Seattle. Delta Hotels will open the Shanghai property later this year, while the four-star brand opened its first U.S. property last year (Delta Hotels Orlando Lake Buena Vista), and this year has added Delta Hotels Baltimore Hunt Valley, Delta Hotels Baltimore Inner Harbor, Delta Hotels Chesapeake, Delta Hotels Chicago North Shore, and Delta Hotels Fargo.

Guests at the Delta Hotels Chicago North Shore enjoy vibrant lobby décor and colorful accents.

“Already an award-winning brand, Delta Hotels has become a development powerhouse with new presences in the U.S. and Asia in the last year that gives guests more ways to experience this exciting brand,” said Gregory Durrer, Global Brand Leader, Delta Hotels. “Our model is simple. We know what our guests want and because of that Delta’s intuitive design and service enables guests to focus on what’s important. It is simple made perfect.”
