St. Regis Hotels and Resorts, a part of the Marriott International group, has announced the opening of The St. Regis Toronto, thereby making the brand’s much-awaited debut in Canada.

Strategically positioned in the city centre and surrounded by various entertainment and financial avenues, the 65-storeyed luxury hotel offers a striking view of the Toronto skyline. Designed by Chapi Chapo Designs, the hotel offers 258 guest rooms, 124 of which are luxury suites.

A new addition to the signature St Regis Butler service is the eButler chat that allows guests to contact their butlers via the Marriot Mobile App.

The hotel will introduce two new restaurants, adding to Toronto’s diverse, culinary scene. Located on the 31st floor is the LOUIX LOUIS bar and restaurant offering a unique blend of American cuisine overlaid with French technique. Astor Lounge is a lobby-level café that offers afternoon tea and engages guests in a 5pm champagne sabering ritual every evening.

Additionally, the hotel’s 1114 sqm large event spaces can host gatherings of various kinds; be it a celebratory event or an executive meeting. Furthermore, the hotel features a fitness centre that provides a movement studio for yoga and pilates. Located on the 31st is the St Regis’ signature spa inclusive of an infinity-edge saltwater lap pool that oversees the captivating Toronto skyline.

On the other hand, Marriott and Starwood, following the data breach controversy, are expected to face legal actions by Canadians who stayed at Marriott International Inc. and Starwood Canada ULC hotels. The plaintiffs are accusing the brand of negligence and not safeguarding their personal information.
