TORONTO — Delta Hotels and Resorts is expanding into Saguenay, Que., with the purchase of a new property — touted to be the city’s first four-star hotel — slated to open in the spring.
The 155-room Delta Saguenay Hotel and Conference Centre will feature redesigned guestrooms, upgraded amenities and a new restaurant and lounge.
“As the only hotel in the region north of Quebec City with a convention centre, the Delta Saguenay further strengthens our ability to attract conferences and group meetings in Quebec, which is a critical part of our growth strategy in the province,” said Hank Stackhouse, president and CEO, Delta Hotels and Resorts.
The hotel is operated by Intercontinental Hotel Group under the Holiday Inn brand, and is owned and managed by Saguenay Limited Partnership, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Vista Hospitality Group. It will be franchised under the Delta brand once the renovations are complete. The hotel’s executive team and employees will stay on during and after the transition.
