TORONTO — After two years of delays, Toronto’s W Hotel will officially open its doors at 90 Bloor St. E. on July 21.
The design of W Toronto’s public spaces will reflect the city’s brutalist architecture, graffiti art, grid-like sprawl, green spaces and theatre and music culture. The 11-storey, 254-room hotel will include three distinct food-and-beverage venues, including a rooftop bar and restaurant that will be accessible from street level via a dedicated exterior glass lift. The Mediterranean-inspired late-night menu will be accompanied by vermouth and amaro craft cocktails. The street-level Coffeehouse will feature vegetable-forward breakfast options while the Living Room will serve tapas.
Additionally, W Toronto will host the first W Sound Suite in Canada. The private recording studio and creative space will include a vocal booth, mixing equipment and lounge area. The space can also host private events. Other amenities include a 3,300-sq.-ft. fitness facility and 4,600 sq. ft. of event space.
“We foresee it welcoming international business and leisure travellers, but also becoming a destination for urban thrill-seekers,” says Paul Cahill, area VP of Eastern Canada for Marriott International. “We’re applying a unique, vibrant sensibility to the upcoming W Toronto, one that has not been seen before in Toronto.”
