OTTAWA — The re-branded Delta Ottawa City Centre, formerly the Crowne Plaza, located across the street from the Delta’s existing property the Delta Ottawa Hotel and Suites, will open this month.
Delta will assume management of the location, and a $25-million renovation is planned for the 411 guestrooms and suites, 26,000 square feet of meeting space (including a 10,000-square-foot ballroom), and a 26th floor penthouse level reception area, which features floor-to-ceiling windows and overlooks the Parliament buildings and the Ottawa River. Other amenities include a full-service restaurant, 101 Café and Lounge as well as an indoor pool, sauna, fitness room and squash courts.
“The addition of this new hotel puts Delta among the largest hotel meeting facilities in Ottawa, strengthens our presence in the city and positions us to gain a larger share of the market, particularly with meetings business,” said Hank Stackhouse, president and CEO, Delta Hotels and Resorts.
The renovations will start in June with completion targeted for March 2012. The hotel will remain open and continue to operate throughout the renovations.
