Group focus: Marriott’s W Hotels to debut in Toronto [Construction Report]

by | Sep 16, 2019 | Projects

The W Toronto has exciting and innovative surprises waiting for guests around every corner.

W Toronto, which is slated to open next year, is bringing bold design and innovative programming to Canada’s most dynamic city.

Marriott International, Inc. has signed a new agreement with Larco which will see the W Hotels brand opening a location in Toronto next year.

W Toronto will bring the brand’s trademark bold design, signature Whatever/Whenever service and innovative programming to Toronto for the first time.

Experts say there is a growing demand for luxury accommodation in Canada. This brand, with its boundary-expanding approach to design, is certainly luxurious.

“We are applying a unique, vibrant sensibility to the upcoming W Toronto, one that has not been seen before in Toronto,” said Paul Cahill, Area Vice President, Eastern Canada for Marriott International.

“The exciting evolution of this property into Toronto’s first W hotel is consistent with the ongoing evolution of this Toronto neighbourhood whose vibrancy, sophistication, and density continues to grow. This is a strategic location for the brand, and we foresee it welcoming international business and leisure travellers, but also becoming a destination for urban thrill-seekers.”

Meet the W Toronto

The W Toronto will be a 9-story, 255-room property at 90 Bloor Street East.

That places the new luxury hotel squarely in Toronto’s fashionable and famous Yorkville neighbourhood, where it will be surrounded by high-end boutiques, galleries and design studios. In addition, guests will be able to walk to chic cafes, polished bars and fine dining.

A $40 million design project will transform this hotel head to toe, from the guest rooms and restaurants to the amenities and public areas.

Currently, the property is slated to open for guests in the summer of next year, reinforcing Marriott’s growing commitment to Canada.

The details which set the W Toronto apart

This hotel will absolutely redefine modern luxury in Toronto, taking inspiration from social, historical and physical insights. It will also embed elements of each of those into its rooms and public spaces.

Upon entering the hotel, guests will be immersed in a modern biophilia and laboratory-style experience which leads to breath-taking indoor/outdoor spaces, perfect for soaking in spectacular sunsets.

When it opens for its first guests, the W Toronto is expected to have multiple food and beverage venues including an indoor/outdoor lobby bar and lounge equipped with a DJ booth and recording studio for collaborating on, broadcasting and recording podcasts; a specialty restaurant and a 9th-floor rooftop restaurant, accessible from street level with a glass exterior elevator and a unique coffee and cocktail bar.

W Toronto will also feature a 3,300-square foot fitness facility and 4,800 square feet of meeting space to serve as a unique venue for social and corporate events.

This way, W Toronto will embody the brand’s signature ‘work hard, play hard’ philosophy, with FUEL-focused activities including weekly workouts, healthy and delicious cuisine and amazing adventures powered by the W brand mantra of DETOX. RETOX. REPEAT.
