TORONTO—Between packed schedules, out-of-the-way meeting locations and other factors, many business travellers who visit Toronto can end up with limited chances to see much of the city. But the new Delta Toronto hotel—slated to open its doors in late November—aims to change that.

The 46-storey building is located in the city’s south core district, home to a burgeoning collection of office buildings and entertainment establishments. The Delta is at 75 Lower Simcoe, the heart of this new financial and entertainment district, and the up-and-coming neighbourhood boasts no shortage of sights to see for business travellers staying in the area.

Delta Toronto recently hosted an invitation-only tour of the still under-construction hotel which Travel Management Canada magazine attended.

And while business travellers may lack opportunity to experience what the city has to offer, the hotel’s location allows many of those attractions to be visible from just about any angle. The Air Canada Centre (home of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Raptors), Rogers Centre, CN Tower, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, Steam Whistle Brewing and several other attractions are not only within walking distance from the Delta Toronto, but can be seen from the panoramic views of the 567 guest rooms.

The hotel has nine elevators and 13 rooms on each floor, as well as featuring 17,000sqft of meeting and conference space and a 6,000sqft ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows. The meeting rooms have natural light and are pillar free, designed to provide a spacious and airy feel.

The 150-seat contemporary restaurant boasts an 80-seat outdoor patio and bar, and there’s also a whiskey bar on the premises as well. The hotel boasts a health and wellness facility that will include a gym, whirlpool and indoor pool.

The hotel also has direct access to Union Station and is minutes away from the Toronto City Centre Airport, waterfront and the city’s downtown shopping.

Visitors to the new hotel will also notice small, white pockets on the building’s exterior. Those white marks have a story behind them: they’re designed to represent champagne bubbles inside the bottle as they bubble to the top.
