The Delta Ocean Pointe Resort is situated at the mouth of the inner harbour, looking out towards downtown. The name of the hotel is sometimes confusing to locals as some know it as The Delta, others call it Ocean Pointe and some refer to the broader branding of Marriott. More often than not though, we call it "the one on the other side of the bridge". The Delta Ocean Pointe Resort has the distinction of being on the "other side" of the Blue Bridge. Which is also known as the Johnson Street bridge - just to confuse matters even more! The Blue Bridge (which actually isn't even blue anymore except when it is lit up at night) is an articulating bridge that raises to allow tall boats into the Upper Harbour - mostly heading to Point Hope Shipyards. The whole process of raising and lowering the bridge is quick, and fascinating to watch so no need to be concerned about being stuck on one side of the bridge or the other for long periods of time (see below for a photo of the hotel with the bridge raised in the background).

Guests at the Delta Ocean Pointe Resort have access to an on-site tennis court and they are mere minutes from the very trendy shopping district of LoJo - Lower Johnson. An absolute favourite dining experience in the area is Il Terrazo - an exquisite Italian dining establishment or check out what's brewing at Swans Brewery Pub. There is a walkway that passes along the front of the hotel taking you right into town or hop on the Harbour Ferry water taxi service to visit Fisherman's Wharf across the harbour.
The breathtaking views and stunning location make the Delta Ocean Point Resort a favourite with travellers.
Guests of the Delta Ocean Pointe Resort give an overall rating of excellent for this property. They especially love the location and the views. Some guests were put off that rooms with better views cost more, but that is pretty standard wherever you go. Guests also enjoyed the tennis courts, fitness facilities and the running/walking pathway right outside the hotel doors. Some people felt that parking should have been included in the price of the room and were disappointed that there was no nearby on-street parking. The on-site restaurant gets mixed reviews with some people loving it and others felt the selection and portions were less than desirable. Overall most guests are very happy with their experience.
