Delta Hotels and Resorts officially opened its new flagship property yesterday (Nov. 27) – the Delta Toronto hotel in downtown Toronto, the first four-star, full service hotel to be built in the city in over two decades.
Designed to exceed the evolving expectations of the modern traveller, Delta Toronto is the flagship brand standard for Delta’s growing portfolio of hotels and resorts across Canada.
From coast to coast, Delta is introducing new designs, new hotels and innovative use of technologies that engage guests in ways one would expect from Canada’s leading, four-star hotel company. Delta recently embarked on a major national campaign promising Canadians to Expect Even More.
“Delta Toronto is the major symbol of our transformation. Our incredible new hotel, paired with our exceptional service culture and passionate employees, together are a recipe for success,” says Ken Greene, president and CEO of Delta Hotels and Resorts. “We are well on our way to being the leading Canadian hotel brand, surpassing the expectation of our guests, owners and colleagues.”
At Delta Toronto, innovative use of technologies allows guests to customize their stay. Interactive televisions in each room provide information about the hotel and the local destination, as well as enable guests to remotely upload content from mobile devices to the television screen to watch their own content. A new mobile app was also recently launched across Delta hotel and resort locations to enable guests to access a full range of guest services.
Delta Toronto’s design is reflective of the city’s vibrant culture. Canadian art, materials and modern finishes, as well as a focus on natural light, define the new Delta Toronto. In the tradition of grand hotel design, the Delta Toronto lobby has a sweeping staircase and spacious public areas featuring works from emerging Canadian artists. With 567 ModeRoom guest rooms and suites on 40 storeys, guests are treated to unparalleled views of the city.
The hotel also offers a leading edge fitness facility with a gym, whirlpool and indoor pool, a business centre and approximately 17,000 square feet of high-tech meeting and conference space, including a 6,000 square foot ballroom and 4,000 square foot terrace for outdoor events.
The SOCO Kitchen + Bar, a 150-seat restaurant, is designed to serve as a central meeting place for locals and visitors to connect and share a meal. Executive Chef Dan Craig’s menu is inspired by fresh ingredients cooked simply. In modern celebration of a classic drink, Char No.5 is an exclusive whisky bar located in the lobby.
