BETHESDA, MD — Marriott International will open the Delta Orlando Lake Buena Vista in December 2015. To be operated under a franchise agreement by JHM Hotels, this will be the first Delta Hotels and Resorts branded property in the United States.
In April 2015, Marriott International acquired the Delta Hotels and Resorts brand. The brand brings a rich history and a range of properties to the Marriott portfolio and currently consists of 37 hotels and nearly 10,000 rooms.
“We are thrilled to work with JHM Hotels as we continue to integrate the Delta Hotels and Resorts brand into the Marriott family,” said Paul Cahill, Global Brand Leader Delta Hotels & Resorts, Area Vice President of Operations, Canada. We are especially excited to debut the brand in one of the country’s top resort and leisure destinations and look forward to welcoming even more guests to the Delta experience. This opening also marks the beginning of new growth opportunities for both our owners and franchisees,” added Cahill.
The 241-room resort is minutes from local Orlando attractions and offers a fresh approach to the guest experience, including intuitive designs and technology for both modern business and leisure travellers. It features a resort-style swimming pool complete with a kids’ splash zone and pirate ship, kids’ activity room, fitness centre, complimentary WiFi, onsite parking and D Flats restaurant and bar.
As a future member of the Disney Good Neighbor Hotel program, the resort will offer transportation to and from local attractions, including all of the Disney theme parks.
