The multi-million dollar renovation of Vrancor Group’s Holiday Inn Express Toronto-North York Hotel is now complete. The 163-room property is the second largest Holiday Inn Express® hotel in Ontario and fifth largest in Canada by number of rooms.
“Holiday Inn Express hotels are designed to be the smart choice for value-conscious business and leisure travellers,” said Darko Vranich, CEO and president of Vrancor Group. “This renovation was designed to deliver changes that you will feel the moment you step inside.”
Renovated and new spaces include a completely-redesigned lobby, Great Room, expanded fitness centre and new indoor pool. Premium meeting space includes the York Boardroom (capacity: 12) and Downsview Room (capacity: 16). A new, modern Business Centre with two work stations featuring Lenovo 23″ all-in-one computers and complimentary Dell Laser Jet printing is located adjacent to the Great Room.
Guestrooms have been refreshed with new carpeting, wall vinyl and complete bathroom upgrades. Other guestroom amenities include: SimplySmart™ bedding collection; upgraded, complimentary WiFi; 60-channel high-definition digital cable, viewed on 37″ HD flat screen TVs; refrigerator and microwave; and keyless tap Saflok electronic door entry.
The overall transformation of the hotel was designed to evoke a warm, upscale feel. The colour palette, which is used throughout, incorporates rich shades of pumpkin, sage green, brown and gold. Design elements include espresso-coloured millwork and white countertops with patterned acrylic inserts. Artwork features modern photography of nature-inspired imagery.
Holiday Inn Express Toronto-North York is located a short distance from York University and attractions including Downsview Park, LEGOLAND® and Canada’s Wonderland. It is accessible from Highways 400, 401 and 407.
