Prince George Goes Four-Star

Delta Hotels was purchased by Victoria-based pension fund BCIMC in 2008 BCIMC

Delta Hotels announces that it will open Northern B.C.’s first full-service, four-star resort

Banking on Prince George’s boom in business tourism, Delta Hotels plans to open the city’s first full-service, four-star hotel in 2015.
“Prince George is one of those marketplaces that has grown fairly fast and we couldn’t be more pleased that Delta could play a role in that development and growth,” says Ken Greene, President & CEO of Delta Hotels and Resorts
Developer River City Hotel Management has already broken ground on the downtown site which will feature a 6,600 square-foot conference center, a fitness centre with spa and indoor pool and a full-service restaurant and lounge. While there are other four-star properties in Prince George, the hotel’s full-service amenities and downtown location set it apart, said a representative for Delta Hotels.
“As the largest city in one of the fastest growing regions of the country, and recently listed in the top ten for employment opportunity, Prince George is preparing to host the nation at the 2015 Canada Winter Games,” said Mayor Shari Green in a statement.
The Delta network of hotels and resorts has been repositioning itself since it was purchased six years ago by Victoria-based pension fund, British Columbia Investment Management Corporation, says Greene. The Delta Prince George will represent the “new” Delta.
“For many years we were a dusty brand. We have been around for five decades in Canada, but what we were lacking was really a consistent product and a renovated product,” he says. 
Founded in Richmond in 1962 and now headquartered in Toronto, Delta operates nine other properties in B.C.
