Delta Hotels has today announced the official grand opening of the 339-room Delta Hotels by Marriott Shanghai Baoshan in China.
The news marks the inaugural entry of the premium North American hotel brand into the booming Asia-Pacific market, and crowning a stellar year of rapid growth for the brand, which expects to expand its global portfolio to 66 properties worldwide by the end of 2018.
“We are very excited to introduce the first Delta Hotels by Marriott to the Asia Pacific region,” said Mike Fulkerson, vice president, brand and marketing, Asia Pacific at Marriott International.
“The hotel delivers key essentials in a manner that makes travel seamless and always enjoyable for our guests.”
The new Delta Hotels by Marriott Shanghai Baoshan is owned and managed by Shanghai Baolian Real Estate.
The building, with its striking Georgian-inspired façade, is strategically located close to downtown Shanghai in the city’s waterfront Baoshan district, at the mouth of the Huangpu River.
The hotel is a five-minute drive from the futuristic Wusongkou International Cruise Terminal, which has the capacity to handle 3.6 million cruise passengers every year.
It features 339 elegantly appointed, high-ceilinged guest rooms and suites, each curated to intuitively meet the needs of discerning travellers, featuring 55-inch flat-screen LCD televisions, air purifiers, capsule coffee machines and premium bath amenities.
Delta Hotels became a part of the Marriott International 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.
