Delta Hotels by Marriott Grand Rapids Airport to host ribbon cutting and Grand Opening Celebration

GRAND RAPIDS, MI (October 30, 2017) – Delta Hotels by Marriott Grand Rapids Airport invites the community and the media to join them for a ribbon cutting with the Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce and a Grand Opening Celebration on Wednesday, November 8 from 3-5pm.

The hotel (formerly the Ramada Plaza) has recently completed a total-property renovation and conversion to the new Delta by Marriott brand. Their opening marked the first Delta-branded property in the region and an all-new, modernized identity for the hotel. Renovations included upgrades to guest rooms, a reconfiguration of their lobby with the addition of a lounge (Urban on 28th) and Starbucks counter, new carpets, fixtures and furnishings in their event space, an expanded fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, and technology upgrades throughout the property including complimentary high-speed wifi.

“We could not be more excited to have this property join the Delta brand,” said Norman Leslie, President of National Hospitality Services, the management company which oversees the hotel. “Delta Hotels are on the cutting edge of the industry and really work to elevate the guest experience. We look forward to everything this new direction for the property is going to offer travelers and the Grand Rapids community.”

Delta Hotels by Marriott focus on streamlining the travel experience and operate with a guiding philosophy of providing guests the “Bare Maximum” by offering premium, 21st century amenities including USB outlets, ultra-comfortable mattresses, focused work spaces and complimentary bottled water in guest rooms, high-speed internet throughout the property, and CrossFit and yoga equipment in their fitness center.

“The transformation at this property has been amazing to watch,” said Sarah Koustrup, Executive Vice President at National Hospitality Services. “The property is nearly unrecognizable from its previous identity as a Ramada, and the fresh start has been so energizing for both our guests and our staff. The changes are evident from the moment you walk in the door and offer something completely unique to the region.”

Delta Hotels by Marriott Grand Rapids Airport looks forward to welcoming the community to celebrate this new chapter for their hotel. Event details are below:
