Langham Hospitality Group has re-branded the Delta Chelsea, Canada’s largest hotel, as the Eaton Chelsea Toronto.
Hong Kong-based Great Eagle Holdings Limited, parent company of Langham, has owned the hotel for almost 20 years and with its repositioning, the hotel will be the first of its kind in Canada and joins other Eaton Hotels located in Hong Kong, Shanghai and New Delhi.
“Great Eagle Holdings has owned the hotel for almost two decades but the time is now right for the Langham Hospitality Group to assume management,” said Langham Hospitality Group’s CEO, Brett Butcher.
“It represents a tangible development for our company in North America as we are now represented in the U.S. market with properties in Boston and Pasadena, with new hotels opening in New York and Chicago this year.
“To complement these hotels, we will now have a strong presence in Canada which is in line with the group’s financial commitment and long-term vision for the continent.”
He said Eaton aims to surprise and delight guests with a value-for-money proposition that delivers a stylish, modern level of comfort with warm and welcoming service and an on-going commitment to sustainability.
A multi-million dollar investment programme for the hotel has already begun and includes beautifying the exterior, refurbishing the lobby and Market Garden Restaurant, and extensively upgrading the interiors of the banquet and meeting facilities.
“We are very excited about the addition of Eaton Chelsea, Toronto to the Langham family,” said Eaton Chelsea, Toronto’s Managing Director and Regional Vice President, Josef Ebner.
“In repositioning to an Eaton brand that will include some significant renovations, we are excited to now share a design philosophy of smart, modern and uncomplicated interiors and an enthusiastic ‘can do’ service culture which will set us apart from the competition in downtown Toronto.”
As Canada’s largest hotel with 1,590 guest rooms, Eaton Chelsea, Toronto is centrally located and just steps from the city’s best shopping districts, world-class theatres, vibrant nightlife and exciting attractions.
A full-service urban resort, Eaton Chelsea has room types to suit everyone and the hotel offers five restaurants and lounges, separate adult and family recreation areas and pools – including the “Corkscrew” – downtown Toronto’s only indoor waterslide. As a premier family destination, the hotel offers a full range of services including the Family Fun Zone with Camp Chelsea, Kid Centre and Club 33 Teen Lounge.
