Langham Hospitality Group Announces Eaton Hotel Brand In Canada - First Hotel In Prominent Location In Downtown Toronto


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, please call 1-800-CHELSEA (243-5732) or visit chelsea.eatonhotels.com

As the wholly-owned subsidiary of Great Eagle Holdings, Langham Hospitality Group encompasses a family of distinctive hospitality brands which include hotels, resorts, residential serviced apartments, restaurants and spas, located on four continents. The Group currently owns and/or manages 16 hotels under The Langham, Langham Place, Eaton and 88 Xintiandi brands with more than 24 hotel projects currently either confirmed or in a developed stage of negotiation from China through Asia and India to the Middle East. North America remains a focal point for the group's development with over 2,000 rooms planned to be added in 2013 to the existing portfolio.
