Sheraton Hotels & Resorts reveals its new vision in Canada
The new look of Sheraton Hotels & Resorts in Canada—within Marriott Bonvoy's portfolio—is debuting its new modernized look at flagship properties.
The new look of Sheraton Hotels & Resorts in Canada—within Marriott Bonvoy's portfolio—is debuting its new modernized look with extensive renovations at three flagship properties in Canada: Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Toronto International Airport, Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, and Le Centre Sheraton Montreal Hotel. These hotels join the properties around the world exemplifying the brand's design transformation, with nearly 50 hotels expected to be completed by year's end.
Drawing on its roots as a community hub for locals and guests, the new approach for Sheraton includes spaces to connect, be productive, and help travellers feel connected to the local community. In addition to technology integration and an elevated food and beverage philosophy.
Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Toronto International Airport
Following nearly two years of renovation work, Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Toronto International Airport is ready to debut a dramatically different airport hotel experience. The 484-room hotel has undergone a $30 million makeover bringing technology, design, and style to the international stopover. The renovation, now fully complete, is the latest example of an emerging generation of airport hotels that are intended to function as destinations.
Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel
Toronto's iconic Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel has been a staple in the downtown core for decades. The hotel has been completely reimagined with renovations and enhancements from top to bottom that continue to roll out throughout 2022 and mark the most extensive renovation in the hotel's 50-year history.
As part of the first phase of the property's reimagining, the exclusive Sheraton Club – floating in the clouds on the 43rd floor – welcomed a new look, experience, and service style in October. Available to Marriott Bonvoy Elite members and guests who upgrade their stay, the premium 15,000 square-foot gathering space is welcoming, elevated, and purposefully designed for a layered and engaging experience that transitions seamlessly with activations from morning to evening. Guests will find updated food and beverage offerings, premium amenities, enhanced connectivity, and 24/7 access to provide a private environment.
The second phase introduces two new food and beverage outlets including the recently opened Dual Citizen—a coffeehouse-style grab and go during the day, transitioning to a lobby bar in the evenings. Opening this spring, 43 Down will be a departure from the traditional hotel restaurant. With its beverage-forward concept, 43 Down focuses on mixology as an art form, delivering perfectly on the classics through handcrafted cocktails. Offering locally inspired flavours from Toronto's diverse culinary scene, 43 Down blends intimacy and connectedness, acting as a backdrop for an informal business meeting or social gathering.
The final phases are expected to roll out this spring with the unveiling of public spaces and amenities that foster community-building and productivity.
Le Centre Sheraton Montreal Hotel
Located in the heart of downtown Montreal, the newly renovated Le Centre Sheraton Montreal Hotel is ready to welcome guests to its 825 newly renovated guest rooms and suites. Spaces range in size from a generous 310 sq ft to a sprawling 1,956 sq ft for the Presidential Suite. In the new rooms and suites, guests are welcomed into a bright, well-lit space with a warm, residential appeal, along with new tools for productivity, such as a height-adjustable work table, integrated power and charging and layered lighting.
The Sheraton Club, located on the 37th floor of the hotel, is expected to reopen in May 2022 with a bold new look and breathtaking views.
