“HOK thoroughly made over a standard hotel of another brand and created the contemporary, innovative new Delta Ottawa. The dazzling design is the result of a $35-million, two-year plan of action. We could call it cool Zen with warm touches. ”
HOK redesigned the exterior, public spaces and guestrooms of the Ottawa City Centre hotel. Its transformation sets the benchmark for Delta’s rebranding, which HOK helped carry out in locations across Canada.
Redesigned guestrooms include targeted reading lights and multiple outlets for charging devices. Docking stations allow users to connect their laptops or tablets on the television display. Spaces with ergonomic equipment give business travelers a comfortable, productive work environment. Spa-like bathrooms offer a luxurious retreat.
The lounge space enables visitors to relax and connect. The hotel restaurant features a chef’s station and sommelier’s table, drawing visitors into the dining experience.
Situated at a prime downtown location, Delta Ottawa City Centre is within walking distance of the Parliament buildings, museums and the Rideau Canal.
“The renovation signals the launch of a reinvigorated brand that will be reflected philosophically and structurally throughout Delta properties across Canada,” said Ken Greene, president and CEO, Delta Hotels and Resorts.
“This new design has resulted in a 48 percent increase in business for the hotel since the completion of the renovation,” reported Hotelier. “It has also opened doors to the entertainment and film industry in Ottawa and has become a background setting for film and commercial productions.”
