Delta Hotels by Marriott has unveiled an aggressive growth plan that aims to double the brand’s growth in the next two years. The full-service flag, acquired by Marriott Intl. in 2015, has added more than 10 properties since that time and has an additional 20 signed properties in its pipeline.
Once comprised solely of Canadian locales, the brand’s expansion plans include locales in such cities as Dallas, Shanghai and Seattle. The four-star brand’s recent growth included opening its first U.S. property last year (Delta Hotels Orlando Lake Buena Vista), followed this year by five other American locales (two in Baltimore, and one apiece in Chesapeake, Virginia; Chicago; and Fargo, North Dakota).
“Our model is simple,” says Gregory Durrer, Delta’s global brand leader. “We know what our guests want and because of that Delta’s intuitive design and service enables guests to focus on what’s important.”
