Prince George, BC—Delta Hotels and Resorts plans to open a
new property in Prince George B.C. in 2015. The $35-million project will be
managed by Delta and is being developed by River City Hotel Management
Corporation.

The local real estate company aims to make the Delta Prince
George the first four-star, full service hotel in the northern B.C. city.

The “northern capital” is hosting the Canada Winter Games in
2015 and the goal is to have the hotel, with 170 guest rooms, nine extended
stay units, a full-service restaurant and lounge, fitness centre, spa and
indoor pool, open in the downtown by then.

Delta’s network of 41 properties is undergoing a brand repositioning.
River City Hotel Management chose the brand because of its new design concepts,
which include high-tech elements and spacious public spaces, according to a
release.
