This December, amidst the bustle of holiday shoppers, a giant building will erect itself in the skyline of Toronto. The Delta Toronto will be connected to the central financial and entertainment districts through the PATH, Toronto's underground walkway and the world's largest underground shopping complex. The PATH has become so expansive, in fact, that Canadians barely have to buy a winter jacket during the colder months.
Santa Claus, you may want to consider relocating your North Pole business center.

The Delta Toronto is pulling out all the stops to grant tourists a four-star and full-service experience. Rather than cramming its guests into a shoebox that somehow passes as a room, Delta offers rooms that are oversized, with 400 square feet (on average) for maximum sprawling.
The 567 guest rooms will be divided in the 46-story building, giving urbanites a cozy experience that is rare in a city of five million people. Each room not only comes with the valuable commodity of space but also sweeping city views of the lake, the CN Tower and the glittering downtown skyline.

There's no need to step outside: you can watch the seasons pass from your window. Get your nature fix on the rooftop of the hotel, with an urban forest complete with walkways and gardens glistening with green.
Delta was so confident about its new and improved version of a hotel that the brand went "dark" in Toronto for 18 months as it fine-tuned the details. Details like a 130-seat restaurant with an 80-seat outdoor patio. They will also have a Canadian-proud whiskey bar for this wholly Canadian-owned organization.
The new ad campaign boldly states, "Expect even more."

Their confidence might just be justified. Consider Delta Toronto's state-of-the-art wellness facilities with a gym, steam room, Whirlpool, indoor pool and yoga studio. Yes, we said yoga studio.
If you're travelling more for business than for pleasure, how does 17,000 square feet of meeting and conference facilities sound?
Delta has decided to set down roots in Toronto's rapidly expanding Southcore Financial Centre (or Soco for short). They believe that this will give Torontonians and travelers alike a different view of Toronto. Rather than looking south at the needle in the sky, it will flip the perspective while offering unparalleled access to the Air Canada Centre, CN Tower and Ripley's Aquarium.

The Delta Toronto is already taking reservations from eager travelers and curious city-dwellers. We know Mr. Claus is used to the whole Northern thing, but if he changes his mind, Delta Toronto is a great hub for year-round festivities. No frostbite required.
