Crowne Plaza hotel reopens after $20m renovation
Crowne Plaza Toronto Airport has reopened following a $20 million renovation project, which involved adding a host of modern amenities.
A fully fledged makeover
Set right next to Toronto Pearson Airport, the 528-room Crowne Plaza Toronto Airport has always been the ideal venue for conferences, meetings and layover travel. Now, the property has returned after a $20 million renovation to ensure it lives up to its reputation for delivering warm hospitality, memorable events and enjoyable dining.
For starters, the hotel’s lobby was completely revamped, with the help of elegant grey-and-gold lighting fixtures, a grab-and-go marketplace, a fireplace and a new business centre. The guest accommodations also got a facelift; every one of the 528 rooms and bathrooms was redesigned for functionality, all while showcasing a chic contemporary palette. Leisure facilities, including the 1,000 sq ft gym and heated indoor pool, were modernised too.
A special focus on dining and events
To offer guests unique culinary experiences, the hotel updated its dining, bar and social area, which has seating for 200 guests. The property’s 12,000 sq ft of meeting facilities were upgraded as well, and now boast state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment such as digital screens, surround sound, web cameras for virtual calls and theatrical lighting options.
Sukhdev Toor, president of Manga Hotels, said: “The hotel is one of the largest airport hotels in the market, and now the most modern. The renovation and undertaking of this new look and design was extensive and the results are amazing. Our experience working with airport markets will continue to allow us to provide the very best services and facilities to our guests.”
