EDMONTON — Delta Hotels and Resorts has been chosen as the hotel partner for the Edmonton Arena District (EAD), a live/work/play area anchored by the Rogers Place Arena, the hotel, two office towers, condominiums and rental apartments.
“We are proud to partner with the EAD Joint Venture to bring Delta’s elevated hotel experience to Edmonton’s newest landmark,” said Ken Greene, president and CEO of Delta Hotels and Resorts. “Like Edmonton, Delta is on a journey of transformation. From coast to coast, we are introducing new designs, new hotels and new brand programs that engage guests in ways that one would expect from Canada’s leading, full-service hotel company.”
The new hotel will comprise 362 guestrooms and suites, a pool, an outdoor terrace, fitness facilities and 24,000 sq. ft. of meeting space with access to an outdoor area overlooking the EAD’s public plaza. Construction of the hotel’s parkade will begin this fall, followed by construction of the main tower in fall 2015. Completion is slated for early 2018.
EAD amenities will also include eateries, retail stores, a grocery outlet, a pharmacy and other entertainment attractions.
