New Delta Dartmouth Wins HAC Award of Excellence


Hotel Association of Canada Recognizes Delta Dartmouth With Most Impressive Hotel Repositioning Award

The Armour Group Limited (The Armour Group) is pleased to announce the new Delta Hotels by Marriott Dartmouth has received the HVS Most Impressive Hotel Repositioning Award from the Hotel Association of Canada (HAC). The new Delta Dartmouth was fully renovated from an outdated mid-range hotel into a 174 room contemporary corporate-class hotel. Opened on September 14th 2017 in the Burnside Business Park, the Delta Dartmouth is the only full service hotel of its class in the area.

The HAC is the leading voice of the Canadian hotel and lodging industry, representing 8,178 hotels, motels and resorts that encompass the $18.4 billion Canadian hotel industry. Every year the HAC hosts a national Awards of Excellence conference honouring accommodations that have enhanced guest experience and significantly impacted the hotel industry. This year they are recognizing the Delta Dartmouth as the most impressive major renovation, re-branding, and hotel transformation that capitalizes on the dynamics of a market.

The complete revitalization of the property focused on guest experience and comfort, leading to an exemplary finished product that goes above and beyond Delta brand standards. The hotel offers an expansive 7,000 sq. ft. wellness centre, four times the size of the previous property, featuring first-class exercise equipment, a spin room with Fitness On Demand™ classes and a dedicated yoga studio. Food and beverage at the Delta Dartmouth was designed to provide fresh, executive chef-prepared items in a casual and collaborative setting. The main eatery, Pitch & Pivot Social Room, is a welcoming space where guests can feel comfortable having a coffee and working on their laptop or enjoying a full locally-inspired meal with wine parings. This is achieved through open space with varied seating of traditional restaurant tables, loungers, bar stools and couches. The modern décor of the hotel is truly representative of its surroundings, incorporating lake and paddling themes within the custom artwork throughout the guestrooms and showpiece art installation in the main lobby.

The hotel features a new splash zone with indoor pool, water slide, hot tub, sauna and splash pad; making it the perfect weekend destination for families.

The Delta Dartmouth fills a market demand for a corporate-centric hotel in the Burnside Business Park. It is ideally positioned in the business park with easy access to Halifax, Dartmouth Crossing and the airport. The hotel’s deluxe amenities and focus on guest comfort create a seamless experience for business travel through the week and leisure travel on the weekend.
