When Marriott International acquired Canadian hotelier Delta Hotels and Resorts in 2015, it promised not only to introduce the Delta brand to the United States, but to expand it across the country. Three years later, the company continues to make good on its promise, the latest example of which is Delta Hotels by Marriott Helena Colonial, which debuted this week in Helena, Mont.

Located in Montana's capital city, Delta Hotels by Marriott Helena Colonial dates back to 1971, when Montana's then-governor Tim Babcock built and opened the original Colonial Hotel. The property -- which in its heyday was a popular gathering place for state lawmakers -- became a Radisson hotel in 2016, when it also underwent a significant renovation.

Today, the full-service property offers 150 guest rooms, an onsite restaurant, a fitness center, an indoor heated swimming pool and 18,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 4,600-square-foot ballroom and nearly a dozen meeting rooms.

"This hotel has been a bedrock of the Helena community for decades. We are honored to partner with Delta Hotels by Marriott … to continue to offer guests the impeccable service and quality that has become synonymous with this hotel," said David Veeder, the hotel's owner.

Since acquiring Delta, Marriott has grown the brand's portfolio to more than 40 locations across the United States and Canada. By the end of 2018, that portfolio will increase to 66 locations thanks to a swath of new openings in North America and abroad.

"The amenities and features of The Delta brand will fit seamlessly with the wants and needs of the Helena traveler. The team and I look forward to introducing the community to this innovative brand," said General Manager Adrian Ambro.
