TORONTO – Marriott International has signed an agreement with Larco to bring W Hotels to Toronto.
The 9-story, 255-room property located at 90 Bloor Street East in Toronto’s fashionable Yorkville neighbourhood, will be surrounded by high-end boutiques, galleries, and design studios as well as chic cafes, polished bars, and fine-dining restaurants.
The $40 million design transformation, which began in July 2019, will reimagine the property’s guest rooms, restaurants and amenities. The property is expected to open as W Toronto in Summer 2020.
“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.”
W Toronto is also expected to feature multiple food and beverage venues including an indoor/outdoor lobby bar and lounge equipped with a DJ booth/recording studio for collaborating, broadcasting and recording podcasts; a specialty restaurant and a 9th floor roof top 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.
