Marriott International’s four-star Delta Hotels brand is doubling its growth over the next two years in Asia and the US, with some 20 new properties across the two regions currently in the pipeline.

First to open is a new Shanghai property currently projected to open later this year, with Dallas and Seattle also set for new hotels.

Delta Hotels has been undergoing a rapid expansion ever since its 2015 acquisition by Marriott International. Then at 30 hotels located solely in Canada, the brand now operates over 40, having opened new hotels in Baltimore, Chesapeake, Chicago and Fargo already this year.

“Delta Hotels has become a development powerhouse with the presences in the US and Asia in the last year that gives guests more ways to experience this exciting brand,” said Delta Hotels’ global brand leader, Gregory Durrer. “Our model is simple. We know what our guests want and because of that, Delta’s intuitive design and service enables guests to focus on what’s important. It is simple made perfect.”

While details of the new Shanghai property in particular are limited, Delta Hotels typically features deluxe and corner rooms, and one-bedroom suites, along with multiple restaurants, bars and a grab-and-go food marketplace. A 24-hour fitness centre and complimentary wifi are also common across all the brand’s properties.

Meanwhile travellers using the Marriott Mobile App can check-in and checkout using the app, as well as have access to keyless room entry.
