Delta builds in Waterloo

A new Delta Hotels and Resorts property is being built in Waterloo that will showcase a reinvigorated brand through modern design and innovations. Slated to open in summer 2013, the Delta Waterloo Hotel will become the city’s first 4-star upscale, full service hotel after a $36 million investment. The Delta network of hotels and resorts is undergoing an extensive brand repositioning designed to deliver one of the most upscale guest experiences in the four-star hotel category. All Delta properties are being built or renovated to boast some of the most modern design and techno- enabled guest spaces in the Canadian hotel marketplace. The Delta Waterloo, as well as Delta’s 45-storey flagship Toronto hotel scheduled for opening in 2014, will be reflective of the newly repositioned brand. Delta’s current property in Kitchener will no longer be operated under the Delta brand effective March 31, 2013. The Delta Waterloo will be part of the 14 acre Barrelyards development project that will transform this portion of Uptown Waterloo into a vibrant community which will consist of the nine-storey hotel, a 200,000 square foot office complex, luxury residential buildings, condominium towers, assisted living residences and townhomes. “This new hotel will reposition Delta as the market leader in Kitchener-Waterloo and will offer travelers the most modern, innovative and thoughtfully designed hotel in the region,” said Ken Greene, president & CEO, Delta Hotels and Resorts. “The Delta Waterloo will represent the new Delta and we are thrilled to bring this upscale hotel experience to the heart of Canada’s high tech sector in Waterloo’s bustling business community.” The Delta Waterloo will be managed by Delta Hotels and Resorts, and is owned and being developed by Auburn Developments Incorporated, a progressive and multi-faceted land development company.
