TORONTO — Le Germain Hotel Toronto has unveiled its redesigned guestrooms.
The nine-month overhaul, led by the design team at Montreal-based Lemaymichaud, features dark and light tones paired with a carefully selected combination of textured finishes to provide dramatic yet inviting contrasts. Deluxe accents include the felt-inspired material made of 95 per cent recycled matter, called Svelte, which covers the wall behind the headboards and Corian countertops. The design elements are enhanced by an intelligent concealed LED lighting system to create a warm, diffused effect.
Guests were invited to experience and give feedback on a model room in the hotel over the course of three months before the start of the renovations. “We value the comfort of our guests above all else, so the best way to ensure the new room design addressed their needs and preferences was to make them part of the transformation process,” says Christiane Germain, co-president of Group Germain Hotels.
One-of-a-kind art installations have been added on the wall above each bed. Commissioned by Group Germain Hotels, Canadian artists Ann Bartok and Olena Kassian from Barkas hand-made every one of the 120 featherweight sculptures — a series called Cloud 9 — which anchor each room.
A total of 118 rooms have been revitalized and the hotel’s hallways were also updated. “From the irresistible bed to the oversized spa-style bathroom and the work station, Le Germain Hotel Toronto’s guestrooms are now welcoming havens of comfort and modern design,” says Nicolas Lazarou, GM of Le Germain Hotel Toronto.
