Marriott in its Element in Toronto
June 2020 has seen the reopening of many societies, economies and industries following the easing of some Covid19 restrictions, providing a boost for the hospitality industry in particular, which has been one of the hardest hit by the virus and the subsequent shutdowns. In this context, any new hotel launch is a cause for celebration, and it’s no different at the new Element Toronto Airport Hotel, which opened at the end of the month.
The forward-thinking property boasts an array of eco-friendly and sustainable solutions, such as free bike usage, electric charging stations for cars and in-suite water filtration systems. And nature plays a big role in the design of the suites, which are generously proportioned and intended to reflect the outdoors in their environment. The hotel also prides itself on offering healthy dining and food options, as well as local craft beers, an indoor swimming pool, a spa and fitness centre and extensive flexible meeting space.
This property is conveniently located opposite Toronto Pearson International Airport’s Terminal 3, and also offers guests easy access to the Toronto Congress Centre, as well as to transport options into the city. Operated as a Marriott franchise, it’s owned and managed by Easton’s Group of Hotels.
Reetu Gupta, president and CEO of The Easton’s Group of Hotels, said: “The Element by Westin will be the 10th Marriott branded hotel that the Easton’s Group has built and developed. We are so proud to bring this brand to Toronto; the brand targets a market and need that is in demand and unmet. We are all excited to welcome our guests and have them divulge in all the Element has to offer.”
What to expect at Element Toronto Airport Hotel
Element Toronto Airport Hotel is a 144-unit property – each suite includes a kitchen, living area and workspace, spa-inspired bathroom, high-speed Wi-Fi and 55″ smart TV. The Element brand’s philosophy is to offer travellers an experience above and beyond what they would expect at a traditional extended-stay venue, and provides them with the ability to thrive while they are on the move.
Dr Steve Gupta, founder and chairman of The Easton’s Group of Hotels, said: “We are excited about this fantastic brand that has one of its focuses on health and wellbeing. We love working with Marriott and are ecstatic to open another hotel together. This is the second newbuild Marriott hotel that we opened in the last three months this year.”
This dual-brand property will share its lobby and certain services with Four Points by Sheraton Toronto Airport.
