Sheraton Hotels & Resorts has marked the beginning of the brand’s global design transformation with the reimagination of three flagship properties in Toronto and Montreal.
Sheraton has debuted its new look with the renovations of Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Toronto International Airport, Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel and Le Centre Sheraton Montreal Hotel.
A new design concept
The launch of this new modernised look for hotels within Marriott Bonvoy’s Sheraton Hotels & Resorts brand portfolio signals renewed optimism following a challenging time for the travel sector.
The first three hotels to benefit from this new design concept will join an increasing number of hotels taking on this design transformation around the world. Almost 50 hotels are expected to reach completion by the end of the year.
“This marks another significant moment for Sheraton as our new vision arrives in Canada and continues to build momentum for our transformation journey around the world,” said Amanda Nichols, global brand leader, Sheraton Hotels & Resorts.
“We have long been part of the social fabric of communities across Canada and as travel resumes, we look forward to welcoming guests into this exciting new chapter for Sheraton.”
The hotels’ new look reflects the brand’s roots as a community hub for both guests and locals, while providing space to connect, be productive and feel connected to the community. A sense of timelessness is paired with seamless technology integration in space with a fresh, modern feel and elevated food and beverage philosophy.
The inaugural transformations
The 484-room Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Toronto International Airport is emerging from an almost-two-year $30 million renovation now providing a new arrival experience with a contemporary aesthetic and signature features including the Community Table, The Studios, sound-proof Booths and the brand’s signature bar, coffee and market concept.
Additional amenities here span a sophisticated Sheraton Club lounge, swimming pool and whirlpool, 24-hour fitness room and Peloton studio, as well as updated meeting space and remodelled rooms and suites.
Marking its 50th anniversary, the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel then benefits from top to bottom renovations and enhancements that will continue to be rolled out this year. The first phase of this project includes a reimagination of the 43rd-floor Sheraton Club with updated food and beverage offerings, premium amenities and enhanced connectivity.
The second phase has encompassed two new dining outlets including the recently opened coffeehouse Dual Citizen and spring opening restaurant and cocktail bar 43 Down. The final phase being rolled out this spring will see the launch of new public spaces and amenities aimed at fostering community building. The indoor/outdoor pool is to re-open this summer.
The 825-key Le Centre Sheraton Montreal Hotel is also welcoming guests into a newly renovated space with newly designed rooms and suites. The 37th-floor Sheraton Club will reopen with a new look in May.
These reimagined spaces join the property’s celebrated amenities ranging from a sixth-floor terrace to indoor lap pool, Jacuzzi, spa and 24-hour Sheraton Fitness Centre.
