Marriott to double Canada-based Delta Hotels' growth globally by 2019

Delta Hotels Orlando Lake Buena Vista in Florida, the first Delta property in the U.S., opened last year.

Canada's Delta Hotels is planning to double the brand’s growth in the next two years, following the hotel chain's acquisition by Marriott International in 2015. Now at 30 properties in Canada alone, the brand’s rapid expansion currently totals over 40 open properties and an additional 20 signed properties in its pipeline, including new entries into Asia and the U.S.

Marriott International will bring the Delta brand globally to gateway cities, including Dallas, Shanghai and Seattle. The Shanghai property is slated to open later this year.

This follows the brand's opening of its first U.S. property, Delta Hotels Orlando Lake Buena Vista last year. This year, the company added Delta Hotels Baltimore Hunt Valley, Delta Hotels Baltimore Inner Harbor, Delta Hotels Chesapeake, Delta Hotels Chicago North Shore and Delta Hotels Fargo to its portfolio.
