New hotel in Guelph to open as a Delta



    TORONTO, Sept. 13 /CNW/ - Delta Hotels and Fifty Stone Road West (Guelph)
Limited Partnership are pleased to announce a long-term agreement that will
see Canada's leading hotel management company brand and manage Delta Guelph
Hotel and Conference Centre beginning early December. Located in the
12-hectare University of Guelph Research Park, Delta Guelph is positioned to
be the premier full-service hotel in this rapidly expanding southern Ontario
market.
    "Delta Guelph will complement our strong network of hotels in southern
Ontario, a region of the province that is deemed to have significant economic
development potential," says Hank Stackhouse, president of Delta Hotels.
    "Who better to manage this full-service hotel than Delta Hotels, with its
solid experience, strong sales network and proven track record," says Bob
Cameron, general partner. "By operating only in Canada, Delta possesses an
unrivalled knowledge of the Canadian market."
    Of the hotel's 148 contemporary guest rooms, all with nine-foot ceilings,
expansive picture windows and all smoke-free, 18 are luxury suites, and
80 offer complete kitchenettes. Amenities in all rooms include the brand's
signature Delta Sanctuary bed, flat-panel high-definition LCD televisions and
high-speed Internet access. The luxury executive or junior suite footprint, in
either a 400- or 500-square-foot size, offers a "king" bedroom as well as a
spacious living area. A select number are furnished with a fireplace, glass
shower and Jacuzzi tub and offer striking views of either the university
grounds or the city skyline. As well, of the 80 deluxe rooms with
kitchenettes, some access private walkout terraces.
    Other hotel features include two innovative environmental design
features, a rainwater collection pipe system and a green, or "living," roof,
more than 14,000 square feet of wireless meeting space (the city's largest
offering), a full-service business centre, a cardio room and a 120-seat
all-day restaurant with lounge, as well as a seasonal outdoor patio.
    The eight meeting rooms, located primarily within a dedicated conference
wing, include the hotel's largest, a 6,000-square-foot ballroom, and three
executive boardrooms that access private outdoor terraces. All have been built
without obstructions and offer natural lighting.
    "Our hotel was built to meet the needs of not only the business traveller
but also local companies looking for larger meeting and banquet venues. This
hotel will be undoubtedly an attractive option for these companies, which have
booked their groups into other cities," says Cameron. "Delta understands
today's traveller better than anyone, and knows the business of conferences
and catering inside out."
