W Toronto to officially open end July
W Toronto’s First Toronto Property will "Remix the Six" with its stylish accommodations, unique programming, W’s signature Whatever/Whenever service and three distinct beverage and food venues.
The W Toronto—11-storeys, 254-room Yorkville hotel—is set to officially open its doors at 90 Bloor Street East, Toronto, Ont. on July 21st, 2022.
The design of W Toronto’s public spaces aims to reflect the city’s brutalist architecture, graffiti art, grid-like sprawl, green spaces; and theatre and music culture. The hotel will include three distinct beverage and food venues, ranging from a coffeehouse to a rooftop bar and restaurant, accessible from street level with a dedicated exterior glass lift. Guests and locals might satisfy any craving with everything from plant-forward fare and local bites to Mediterranean-inspired tapas and a playful and original beverage program that W is known for.
W Hotels will introduce the first W Sound Suite in Canada at W Toronto—a private recording studio and creative space for artists. The space will include a vocal booth, mixing equipment and lounge area to host recording sessions or unique private events.
W Toronto will also feature a 3,300-square-foot fitness facility and 4,600 square feet of event space for social and corporate events.
