"This renovation represents a transformation for the Delta Ottawa City Centre and a sign of things to come for the entire Delta Hotels and Resorts brand as a whole," said Ken Greene, president & CEO, Delta Hotels and Resorts, in an announcement. "The renovation signals the launch of a reinvigorated brand that will be reflected philosophically and structurally throughout Delta properties across Canada. I look forward to having these new designs and guest offerings introduced at all of our hotels over the next few years."
The unveiling of the repositioned Delta Ottawa City Centre showcases 410 ModeRoom guestrooms and suites; a completely redesigned lobby with floor-to-ceiling windows; the creation of an open space business area featuring a series of interactive, fully connected work hubs and lounge areas; and 26,000 square feet of newly revamped meeting and conference space including a 10,000 square foot ballroom which is one of the largest in the city. The renovation also includes the addition of LIFT, a new full service restaurant and lounge.
Extensive structural changes were implemented, the most significant of which involved the removal of the hotel's original ramp which replaced the second floor entrance with an attractive street-level presence creating an enhanced sense of arrival. The lobby, front desk, concierge and bellman, previously located on the second floor, have been relocated to the first floor providing direct access to the street-level.
The new guestroom design, called ModeRoom, feature the SmartDesk, a fully-wired, multi-purpose area that provides guests with a clutter-free space, built-in power and connectivity dock, and links from laptop and mobile devices to the flat screen high definition TV. The room design also features residential touches including shelves and hooks in the entry way, pinpoint reading lights in the headboard, and custom bathroom vanities.
Replacing the typical hotel business center, a portion of the second floor now includes private lounge areas with sofas and tables, designated work stations, an area with TV and couches, a large boardroom style table with group seating, and wide open lounge areas where guests can use laptops and work comfortably at any time.
