STAMFORD, Conn. — Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. has reached an agreement with Easton’s Group of Hotels to open the second Element Hotel in the Greater Toronto Area and renovate Four Points by Sheraton Toronto Airport.
The eight-story Element Toronto Airport will open in summer 2018 adjacent to the seven-story Four Points Toronto Airport, which will remain open throughout the $5-million renovation.
“We are delighted to expand our portfolio in Toronto in partnership with Easton’s Group of Hotels,” says Allison Reid, SVP of North American Development for Starwood. “Element Toronto Airport will offer a bright, energizing environment, great design and everything guests need for smart, sustainable living, while the freshly renovated Four Points will appeal to today’s modern travellers with its emphasis on approachable design and stylish comfort.”
The recent acquisition of Four Points Toronto Airport — located across from Toronto Pearson International Airport, Terminal 3 — and upcoming opening of Element Toronto Airport represent the second and third Starwood hotels in Easton’s Group of Hotels’ portfolio. “Starwood’s Four Points and Element brands are both highly regarded by global travellers and will be excellent additions to our portfolio of world-class hotels in Canada,” says Steve Gupta, president and CEO of Easton’s Group of Hotels. “Toronto is an important gateway market and renovation of the Four Points, paired with a new Element Hotel, will offer travellers two more compelling choices within close proximity to both the airport and downtown.”
The newly constructed Element Toronto Airport will offer 144 rooms with fully equipped kitchens, the signature Heavenly Bed and spa-inspired bathrooms. Amenities will include fast and free WiFi, complimentary bikes to borrow, the healthy Rise breakfast and the Relax evening wine reception.
The renovation of Four Points Toronto Airport, which will be complete by December 2017, includes a top-to-bottom transformation all 204 guestrooms, business center, bar, restaurant and pre-function meeting rooms. The project will also result in upgrades to the porte cochere and all public areas, including the hotel’s 10,000-sq.-ft. of meeting space. Four Points Toronto Airport will be directly connected to the newly constructed Element Hotel and will share a common lobby, indoor pool, fitness facility, bar lounge, restaurant and meeting rooms.
