Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto opens in Canada’s largest metropolis
Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto opened in October 2012 on Canada’s grand ceremonial boulevard, University Avenue, in the heart of its largest city, Toronto, Ontario, strengthening the luxury group's North America Presence.
“Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts are proud to welcome guests to the newest member of the group’s growing global portfolio and second hotel in North America. Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto brings our signature hospitality from the heart to the fast developing downtown core of this cosmopolitan city, welcoming both Toronto residents and travellers from around the world,” said Greg Dogan, president and CEO of Shangri-La International Hotels Management Ltd.
Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto resides within the first 17 floors of a new 66-storey landmark tower. Guests will appreciate its downtown location – where the city’s business and entertainment districts meet. The 202-room hotel is within a five-block radius of the performance centre for Canada’s opera and ballet companies, the headquarters for the country’s five major banks, consulates, leading research hospitals, sports venues, the city’s live theatre district and the Toronto International Film Festival headquarters.
Guestrooms are subtle in design but rich in texture and decorative flair. Each room features an entertainment centre with a 47-inch flat-screen LED television and iPad for in-room use, featuring ICE technology that puts the hotel, literally, in the guest’s hands to access in-room dining, housekeeping, bell service and 24-hour concierge. Nine guestrooms feature private, appointed outdoor terraces and a quarter of the accommodation is devoted to generous suites, among the largest available in Toronto’s downtown core.
The hotel joins Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver, which opened in January of 2009 on Canada’s west coast and brought with it the gracious Asian hospitality and service excellence for which the company is renowned.
