Delta Hotels and Resorts has arrived in the U.S. with the opening of the Delta Orlando Lake Buena Vista in partnership with JHM Hotels. This is Delta’s first branded hotel in the United States and signals the global expansion of the Delta brand. A new Delta logo was revealed in conjunction with the official grand opening as part of the integration of the Delta brand into the Marriott family.
“The Delta Orlando Lake Buena Vista marks the beginning of a period of exciting growth for the award-wining Delta brand.” said Paul Cahill, Global Brand Leader Delta Hotels & Resorts, area vice president of operations, Canada. “The new streamlined logo design reflects our promise to provide guests with a seamless travel experience so they can focus on what’s important.”
The Delta Hotels and Resorts brand encompasses a rich Canadian history and is a great complement to the Marriott International portfolio in the country which currently consists of 136 hotels, 11 brands and more than 25,000 rooms. Besides the Orlando hotel, Marriott plans to expand Delta’s hospitality globally to major gateway cities including New York, Shanghai and London. The development will bring the brand’s offering to a total of 80 hotels.
The Delta Orlando hotel features 241 guestrooms, a resort-style outdoor swimming pool that will soon boast a kids’ splash zone featuring a pirate ship. There is a kids’ game room on-site, a 24/7 fitness center with state of the art touch screen technology on equipment, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi and on-site parking. Guests can also enjoy the D-Flats restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily featuring delicious menu options such as Neapolitan style flatbreads, brick oven pizzas and a long list of local craft beers on tap. Guests can also kick-up their feet and relax near the outdoor fire pit area on the property.
The new U.S. hotel is a member of the Disney Good Neighbor Hotel program and is located just minutes away from local Orlando attractions and offers complimentary transportation daily to Walt Disney World.
“The Delta Orlando Lake Buena Vista offers state-of-the-art technology and intuitive designs to meet the needs of modern business and leisure travelers. It combines the benefits of an upscale family resort with a boutique feel to offer guests a unique experience,” said DJ Rama, president of JHM Hotels.
Marriott acquired the Delta chain in 2015 for $134 million.
