BETHESDA, Md. — Marriott International’s Delta Hotels brand recently debuted in the Asia-Pacific market with the opening of the 339-room Delta Hotels by Marriott Shanghai Baoshan in China. The opening launches what is expected to be a year of rapid growth for the brand, which is set to expand its global portfolio to 66 properties by the end of 2018.
“We are very excited to introduce the first Delta Hotels by Marriott to the Asia Pacific region,” says Mike Fulkerson, vice-president, Brand & Marketing, Asia Pacific at Marriott International. “Delta Hotels is a premium brand with a clear brand ethos of ‘Simple Made Perfect.’ The Delta Hotels by Marriott Shanghai Boshan delivers on this promise by providing a full complement of streamlined services in a simple, straightforward way.”
The hotel features 339 high-ceilinged guestrooms and suites featuring 55-inch flat-screen LCD TVs, air purifiers, capsule coffee machines and premium bath amenities. The building features a Georgian-inspired façade and is strategically located close to downtown Shanghai in the city’s waterfront Baoshan district, at the mouth of the Huangpu River.
Delta Hotels by Marriott Shanghai Baoshan offers a range of dining options, including Lotus All Day Dining Restaurant, a casual American-style concept; The Kitchen steakhouse; Tru, which specializes in authentic Cantonese cuisine; the Lobby Lounge; and DWB bar, which offers signature Delta Hotels cocktails.
The hotel also boasts a pillarless Grand Ballroom, equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment to cater for corporate events, meetings and other occasions.
Delta Hotels became a part of the Marriott International portfolio two years ago and has since become one of the fastest-growing brands in the Marriott portfolio, with a Delta hotel opening every other week.
