Marriot International’s W Toronto will make its debut in 2020 in partnership with Larco Hospitality.
Located at 90 Bloor Street East in Toronto’s Yorkville neighbourhood, the nine-storey, 255-room property will undergo a $40-million transformation.
“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,” said Paul Cahill, area vice-president, Eastern Canada for Marriott International in the hotel group’s press release
The modernized W Toronto will feature:
- 3,300 square foot fitness facility
- 4,800 square feet of meeting space
- 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 ninth-floor rooftop restaurant, accessible from street level with a glass exterior elevator; and a unique coffee and cocktail bar.
Marriott now has seven open luxury hotels in Canada along with additional luxury hotel projects expected to be announced before year-end.
W Toronto is set to open in summer 2020.
