TORONTO — Silver Hotel Group has added The Anndore House to its growing Toronto downtown Hotel Collection portfolio.
Centrally located in Toronto’s Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood, The Anndore House boasts 113 guestrooms and suites on 11 floors, a restaurant, bar, barbershop, café and an entire floor of meeting/event space.
Originally built as a residence hotel in 1955, The Anndore House was home to many of Toronto’s most eccentric personalities and famous faces in the 1950s. With guestrooms designed by Cecconi Simone Inc., along with public spaces and dining outlets by Studio Munge, the House preserves the personality of the building’s past lives, combining vibrant history with the current style, comforts and needs of the modern traveller.
“The Anndore House has all the elements of a true lifestyle boutique hotel. We offer a distinctively local experience for guests that are seeking a creative, refreshing and fun environment,” says general manager Anthony Campaniaris.
The Anndore House team has looked to the city’s creative community to bring the hotel to life. The in-house restaurant and barbershop are both created in collaboration with homegrown experts. Chef Craig Harding, of La Palma and Campagnolo, leads the culinary vision and direction of the hotel’s café, lounge and Mediterranean restaurant, while local-favourite Jon Roth transports the laidback and nostalgic feeling of his Kensington Market Crows’ Nest barbershop to the company’s first midtown Toronto location — right inside the hotel.
Unique in-room elements include record players alongside a curated collection of LPs and cruisers are available for a bike ride in the neighbourhood.
