History[edit]

Delta was founded in 1962 in Richmond, British Columbia with a single 62-room motor inn called Delport Inn and expanded across British Columbia by 1970.[2] It has locations in all 10 provinces. It has a staff of 7,000 employees and is under the leadership of CEO Kenneth Greene. Its global reservation centre is located in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

Delta once had a hotel in the United States, the Delta Court of Flags Hotel,[3] located in Orlando, Florida, however, it was closed sometime after 1996 and has subsequently been demolished. On October 2, 2007, British Columbia Investment Management Corporation announced that it had acquired Delta Hotels.[4] The hotel chain was a 100% holding of Fairmont Hotels and Resorts from 1998 to 2007. Delta's corporate head office is at 77 King Street West (Toronto-Dominion Centre Royal Trust Tower).

Delta's specific branding includes the Delta Privilege rewards program and "Signature Club" executive floor rooms that feature extra amenities and included breakfast.

List of properties[edit]

Delta has 40 hotels and resort properties across the country (excluding Northwest Territories, Yukon Territory and Nunavut) including 8 in Ontario, 9 in British Columbia, 7 in Alberta, 5 in Quebec, 3 in New Brunswick, 2 in Nova Scotia, 2 in Saskatchewan and 1 each in Manitoba, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador. New Delta hotels in Waterloo,[5] Thunder Bay,[6] Prince George,[7] and Toronto's Southcore Financial Centre[8] are under construction/development.

In December 2012 the company announced that effective July 1, 2013 it would be removing its brand from its largest property, the Delta Chelsea in Toronto, citing that the property no longer meets Delta's current standards. It plans to affix its brand to a new Toronto hotel in 2014.[9]
