Quote:Under the agreement, the U.S. hotel chain will take over the management and franchise operations for the 38 Delta hotels and resorts including 10,000 rooms across Canada... Marriott says it plans to integrate the Delta hotels into its systems, loyalty program and website.

Marriott may well keep it as a separate brand, they already have 20-ish brands (depends on how you count) so one more would not be a big deal.  But we'll see once the deal closes.

Following up on my own post ...

Quote:(Marriott's executive vice president of mergers and acquisitions Rick Hoffman) said the company does not anticipate changing any Delta hotels into Marriott locations, but will extend its Marriott rewards platform to Delta properties.

Not these apartments.  A good 40% more than comparable high end buildings in the region.

Whatever you peg the premium to be, being walkable to UpTown and LRT, as well as UW, overlooking the park from a street quieter than most in the core, all that and more will generate some kind of premium.

Sure, they deserve some premium, but it is presently too high, since they are not moving. They are already offering one month free right off the bat.

They will also hold units for months if you are not ready to move in right away.
