Future Edmonton hotel rebrands as a JW Marriott

A hotel in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, has been upgraded to a JW Marriott.

The property was originally planned as a Delta Hotel, and would occupy the first 26 floors of a 55-story condo tower. Now, when it opens in late 2018, the hotel will become the third JW Marriott hotel in Canada.

In 2014, a joint venture between Ice District partnered with Delta Hotels and Resorts to open the first newly-constructed, full-service hotel in the city's downtown in three decades. The hotel's brand was re-evaluated after Marriott acquired Delta last year.

The JW Marriott Edmonton will have 356 rooms, 2,500 square feet of meeting and conference space, a 10,000-square-foot ballroom, a spa and a restaurant.
