Delta Hotels is a well-known brand in Canada, and you can find one of their hotels in any major city across the 10 provinces in Canada. It’s a four-star, dependable brand that offers great value. Although they were acquired by Marriott in 2015, not much has changed in terms of the service or the look and feel of the hotels. If anything, this is good news, since former Delta Privilege members can now collect Marriott Rewards. Fun fact: the Delta in Downtown Toronto is Toronto’s tallest hotel-only tower with 46 floors.
I stayed at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Beausejour located in Downtown Moncton, New Brunswick. The room was bright and clean, and the decor was modern. It had a great desk unit for getting work done, and if I had brought (or asked for) the appropriate cable, I could have hooked up my laptop to the TV.
The hotel has a fitness centre with a swimming pool, hot tub, and water slide (!!!) although the latter only operates during certain hours so I didn’t get to use it during my stay.
Adjacent to the hotel is a large lot with ample parking (make sure you notify the front desk to get a pass for in/out privileges). You’ve also got a ton of restaurant options inside and outside of the hotel: a couple sushi options if you fancy that, and Tide and Boar, a gastropub that was named one of Canada’s Top 50 restaurants by Maclean’s. You’ll also find the Marché Moncton Market which operates on Saturdays right next door.
Although there other options in the area, I’m pretty aggressive about collecting points, so I tend to stay pretty loyal to my hotel chains. It’s a great hotel to stay at if you plan on exploring downtown, with easy access to the highway if you plan on getting out and exploring (and you should – Shediac and Hopewell Rocks are a must if you’ve got the time). Oh, and the Chocolate River is just a few steps away – but more on that in an upcoming post 😉
