TORONTO—Delta Hotels and Resorts unveiled its flagship hotel in Toronto’s South Core neighbourhood during a topping off event, marking the completion of the hotel’s 46th floor. Scheduled to open in late 2014, the Delta Toronto at Southcore Financial Center will usher in the next generation of four-star full-service hotels for the Delta brand.
Delta Hotels and Resorts is in the midst of a transformation to better serve Canadian and international travellers. Designed to exceed the evolving expectations of the modern traveller, the Delta Toronto will serve as the flagship brand standard for Delta’s growing portfolio of hotels and resorts across Canada.
Ken Greene, President and CEO of Delta Hotels and Resorts, says, “The Delta Toronto is truly a unique hotel property in the Greater Toronto Area market. Toronto has not seen a purpose-built four-star full-service hotel in two decades. We are excited to bring our upscale hospitality experience, as well as our reputation for service excellence, to Toronto’s newest neighbourhood.”
The Delta Toronto features 567 guestrooms, which will average 400 square feet. A number of rooms will have spacious four-piece bathrooms with freestanding tubs and separate showers. Additionally, 16 extended-stay suites will be available for travellers in town for a longer period of time.
Designed with the latest in sustainable features and built according to LEED standards, the hotel will benefit from a number of technologies including: heat recovery ventilation and low flow fixtures; smartcards controlling room lighting and air based on suite occupancy; green roofs throughout the building; and an urban forest which will create a unique green space with forested walkways and gardens.
The hotel’s ground floor will host a 230-seat restaurant featuring an 80-seat outdoor patio and bar with views of the surrounding South Core cityscape. The hotel will also include extensive health and wellness facilities including gym, yoga studio, steam room, whirlpool, and indoor pool.
For social and corporate events, the Delta Toronto will offer 17,000 square feet of meeting and conference facilities as well as a 6,000 square foot ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows. A 4,000 square foot terrace will also be available.
