TORONTO — Radisson Blu has opened Radisson Blu Toronto Downtown at 249 Queen’s Quay W. — the first Radisson Blu in Canada.
The hotel, which was originally the Radisson Admiral Toronto-Harbourfront, underwent an extensive renovation to become a Radisson Blu. Local touches are featured in the hotel’s contemporary design. Beautiful corridors lead visitors to the 157 bright and updated rooms with hardwood floors and stunning views of both the cityscape and Lake Ontario. Adding to the local feel is the property’s fully renovated lobby offering both luxury and comfort.
Watermark Restaurant, which features classic Canadian dishes with locally sourced ingredients, will be fully open in 2021. Additionally, the lobby has a 24-hour grab-and-go market with food, coffee, beer and wine. Those looking to relax and unwind can take a dip in the Lakeview Pool Lounge, a picturesque rooftop pool overlooking the CN Tower and the lake. The hotel boasts more than 12,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, a fitness centre and underground parking.
With the health, safety and security of guests and team members as its utmost priority, Radisson Blu Toronto Downtown is implementing Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol program. The in-depth cleanliness and disinfection protocols were developed in partnership with SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. This program is designed to ensure guest safety and peace of mind from check-in to check-out. The hotel has also been certified by Safehotels, which includes a 10-step process involving more than 200 standards including fire safety, security training and crisis management.
“As the world gears up to travel again, we’re accelerating the growth of the Radisson Blu brand with a series of openings, starting with Radisson Blu Toronto Downtown, which also marks the brand’s entrance into Canada,” says Aly El-Bassuni, COO, Americas, Radisson Hotel Group.
Before the end of 2020, Radisson Hotel Group will open Radisson Blu properties in Anaheim, California; Punta Cana, Dominican Republic; and Fargo, North Dakota.
