Langham Hospitality Group Announces Eaton Hotel Brand In Canada - First Hotel 
In Prominent Location In Downtown Toronto 
HONG KONG, April 15, 2013 /CNW/ - Langham Hospitality Group, a subsidiary of 
Hong Kong-based Great Eagle Holdings Limited, is delighted to announce that 
the former Delta Chelsea - Canada's largest hotel, located in downtown Toronto 
- will be officially re-branded Eaton Chelsea, Toronto starting 1 July 2013. 
In 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," says 
Brett Butcher, chief executive officer of Langham Hospitality Group. "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," adds Mr. Butcher. 
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," says Josef Ebner, Regional Vice President and Managing 
Director of Eaton Chelsea, Toronto. "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. For more information or to make reservations,
