Park Hyatt Toronto reopens following transformation
Showcasing new interiors from Studio Munge inspired by Canada’s seasons and natural landscapes, the 219-key Park Hyatt hotel in Toronto has started welcoming guests once more.
Celebrating Canadian heritage is a key theme at the revamped Park Hyatt Toronto, which boasts a host of luxurious guest facilities, including a new world-class restaurant and redesigned rooftop lounge.
Reviving a legendary site
Together, Hyatt Hotels Corporation and Oxford Properties have revealed the result of Park Hyatt Toronto’s major renovation, drawing on its status as an iconic address for the city. The scheme cleverly combines sophistication and glamour with a nod to Canadian literature and art deco.
For this redesign, Studio Munge took its cue from Canada’s natural landscape and striking seasons, adding to the hotel’s home-away-from-home philosophy by using modern materials and soothing colours.
“We are proud to welcome guests to the restored Park Hyatt Toronto hotel, with exceptional personalised service at the heart of every touchpoint,” said Bonnie Strome, general manager, Park Hyatt Toronto. “The remarkable transformation was thoughtfully crafted to provide unparalleled luxury experiences across culinary, arts and culture, travel and design.”
A homage to arts and culture
One of the hotel’s distinguishing features is its impressive art collection, which highlights renowned Canadian and indigenous artists. This collection has been further bolstered by the addition of public sculpture ‘Rendezvous’ by An Te Liu and large-scale lobby tapestry ‘Dead Ringers’ by Shannon Bool.
Visitors are accommodated across 219 guestrooms, of which 40 are suites, fusing residential comfort with contemporary design.
The 14th-floor presidential suite, for example, comprises a welcome foyer, chef’s pantry, dining room, study and living room with a stone-clad fireplace. This suite’s stone-tiled bathroom comes with a contemporary double vanity, double rain shower and freestanding bathtub overlooking Yorkville.
During their stay, guests can dine at the new restaurant Joni, which references Toronto’s arts and culture scene, offering breakfast, lunch and dinner in a casual bistro setting focusing on fresh ingredients. This restaurant is joined by a rooftop cocktail bar, now known as Writers Room, paying homage to literary legends who’ve stayed at the hotel, reflecting the bar’s historical significance as a gathering spot for great minds.
The hotel experience will be completed with a spa and wellness space, which is to be unveiled at a later date.
