TORONTO — After years of anticipation, the new and re-imagined Park Hyatt Toronto opened its doors last week. The hotel combines luxury, sophistication and glamour with a distinctive nod to Canadian heritage, art deco and literature.
The design of the “new” hotel was created by world-renowned designer Alessandro Munge of Toronto-based Studio Munge, who drew inspiration from Canada’s striking seasons and natural landscapes to bring this experience to life. The luxurious property offers an elevated home-away-from-home experience with purpose and style through the use of modern materials and soothing colour schemes.
“We are proud to welcome guests to the restored Park Hyatt Toronto hotel, with exceptional personalized service at the heart of every touchpoint,” says Bonnie Strome, general manager, Park Hyatt Toronto. “The remarkable transformation was thoughtfully crafted to provide unparalleled luxury experiences across culinary, arts and culture, travel and design.”
Rooted in celebrating the sophistication of the arts, Park Hyatt Toronto features a significant permanent art collection highlighting spectacular pieces from renowned Canadian and Indigenous artists. A new public art sculpture “Rendezvous” by Canadian artist An Te Liu, forms a vivid and iconic tableau establishing the hotel as a singular destination. “Dead Ringers,” a large-scale tapestry in the lobby by Canadian artist Shannon Bool, sets the tone for each guest’s enriched and immersive stay.
The 219 guestrooms — including 40 luxurious suites — artfully balance residential comfort with contemporary design. A presidential suite is located on the 14th floor and includes a welcoming foyer, a chef’s pantry and dining-room, a study and living room grounded by a stone-clad fireplace with champagne metal accents. The stone-tiled bathroom features a contemporary double vanity, glass-enclosed double rain shower and a free-standing soaker tub overlooking Yorkville.
From a foodservice perspective, a new restaurant called Joni is inspired by the spirit of Toronto’s vibrant arts-and-culture scene, which harmonizes casual bistro dining with contemporary cooking techniques and focuses on fresh and flavourful ingredients. Situated in the heart of the iconic Park Hyatt Toronto hotel, the restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, cocktail and dinner service with comforting, relaxed yet elevated fare.
The return of the iconic rooftop cocktail bar, now known as Writers Room, pays homage to the history of literary legends that shared moments in the Park Hyatt Toronto hotel. This clever interpretation of a classic cocktail bar reflects the bar’s historical significance as a gathering spot for great minds as they take in the unparalleled Toronto skyline views.
A spa and wellness destination will be unveiled at a later date, welcoming guests to an escape from the surge of city energy. The destination will host personalized treatments with a collection of highly curated relaxation services to treat the body and calm the mind.
The Park Hyatt Toronto is owned by Oxford Properties Group, a leading global real-estate investor, asset manager and business builder.
