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.

CEO of Ace Hotel Group Brad Wilson commented on the launch:

“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.

“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.”

Reservations are currently open for bookings from June 15, with rates starting at US$280.

Meanwhile Ace Hotel will open its first property in Australia in May.
