Park Hyatt Toronto will reopen this September, after undergoing major renovations that closed the hotel for almost four years.
“Through the evolution and restoration of Park Hyatt Toronto, exceptional personalized service remains the heart of this remarkable transformation,” says the hotel’s general manager, Bonnie Strome. “We are proud to welcome guests back to the reimagined Park Hyatt Toronto with services from the hotel’s illustrious past, while proudly introducing new experiences for its much anticipated future.”
The reimagined hotel will debut new interiors from Studio Munge who drew inspiration from Canada’s striking seasons and natural landscapes. The 219 guest rooms, including 40 luxurious suites, balance residential comfort with contemporary design.
The hotel will feature a significant permanent art collection highlighting spectacular pieces from renowned Canadian and Indigenous artists. Guests will be greeted in the lobby by a large-scale tapestry designed by Canadian artist Shannon Bool, which will set the tone for each guest’s stay.
The iconic 17th-floor cocktail bar, familiar to Torontonians and international travellers alike, will be known as the Writers Room, paying homage to the history of literary legends that shared moments in Park Hyatt Toronto.
A spa and wellness destination will welcome guests and residents, providing an escape from the surge of city energy.
In the coming weeks, the hotel will announce a new culinary destination, influenced by the spirit of the city’s vibrant arts and culture scene.
The restoration of Park Hyatt Toronto is part of a wider redevelopment of the site into a mixed-use destination by its owner, Oxford Properties. In addition to Park Hyatt Toronto guest suites, the redevelopment has created 65 luxury rental apartments at Two Avenue Road, in the heritage-designated south tower. The south tower has been completely restored and retained, making it one of the largest heritage restoration projects in Canada. The complex will also feature 20,000 square feet of prime retail over two floors in the restored south tower with 100 feet of frontage along each of Bloor Street and Avenue Road.
“We felt a deep sense of obligation to create a destination that not only respects and embraces Park Hyatt Toronto’s storied history, but one that also reflects Toronto’s emergence as a truly global city,” says Tyler Seaman, head of hotels and multi-residential, North America, at Oxford Properties. “This project is a celebration of the best of Canada. It’s reflected in its design palette, which is influenced by the Group of Seven, the curated art on display and right down to the materials we used including limestone flooring from Owen Sound.”
