Design-led brand Ace Hotel is set to open a property in Toronto in June, marking its first property in Canada.
The 124-room hotel will be housed in a new-build in the city’s Garment District. Located on Camden Street, the hotel will be designed by Toronto firm Shim-Sutcliffe Architects in collaboration with Atelier Ace’s interior design team.
The design will include a “refined material palette of concrete, clay, copper and wood”, along with custom-designed lighting, vintage furniture sourced locally in Toronto, and original artworks by local artists.
Meanwhile, guestrooms have been “conceived as urban cabins” and feature deep-set window benches with views of St Andrew’s Playground Park.
The hotel has enlisted chef Patrick Kriss to oversee the dining venues, which include the signature restaurant Alder, and a yet-to-be-named rooftop bar and lounge which will debut this summer.
“We’ve long admired Toronto, a free-thinking city and international cultural capital, and we are thrilled to open our first Canadian home here. Ace Toronto is housed in a brand-new building inspired, both in design and ethos, by the electricity and independence of this remarkable place,” said CEO of Ace Hotel Group Brad Wilson.
“Along with our brilliant collaborators, including Shim-Sutcliffe and Chef Patrick Kriss, we have created a site that reflects the city’s legacy as a global meeting ground and aims to actively share in its future. We look forward to opening our doors and welcoming everyone – locals and visitors alike.”
