Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) has unveiled the US$20 million renovation of Crowne Plaza Toronto Airport. 

Owned and operated by Toronto-based company Manga Hotels, the 528-room hotel located at Toronto Pearson airport has undergone a series of renovations with a modern design. 

There have been structural and design enhancements to the external facade of the property, while the lobby has been rebuilt with dramatic grey and gold lighting fixtures, a grab-and-go marketplace, modern fireplace and new business centre. The hotel has also added an executive floor on the upper levels of the building for added privacy. 

All rooms and bathrooms have been redesigned in a chic contemporary palette of warm golds, greys and whites, with half of the hotel’s rooms offering king-sized beds with walk-in showers.

Meanwhile, The Cannery Kitchen and Social outlet by award-winning chef Tony Fernandes includes an updated area with seating for 200 guests and a menu featuring a “fresh and healthy take on Canadian food favourites”. 

In terms of leisure facilities, the gym has been enhanced with modern workout equipment from the Life Fitness brand, including Bluetooth speakers, while the hotel’s indoor pool has also been renovated. 

The property’s Algonquin Ballroom and meeting spaces also now boast state-of-the-art AV equipment such as digital screens, surround sound audio, web camera for virtual calls and theatrical lighting. 

Sukhdev Toor, President of Manga Hotels, said:

“The hotel is one of the largest airport hotels in the market and now, the most modern. The renovation and undertaking of this new look and design was extensive and the results are amazing. Our experience working with airport markets will continue to allow us to provide the very best services and faculties to our guests.”
