Sheraton Hotels and Resorts has showcased its new modernised design at three properties in Canada.
The properties, located in Toronto and Montreal, have been revamped as part of Sheraton’s “new vision”, which draws on brand’s roots “as a community hub for locals and guests at flagship locations globally”.
The 484-room Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Toronto International airport has undergone a two-year $30 million renovation. The newly revamped hotel, which is directly connected to the airport, now features a contemporary decor, a lobby with brand signatures such as the Community Table (a purpose-built workspace), The Studios (flexible, private and high-tech gathering spaces) and soundproof booths.
Additional amenities include a Sheraton Club Lounge, swimming pool and whirlpool, 24-hour fitness centre and Peloton studio, updated meeting spaces and completely remodelled guest rooms and suites.
Meanwhile the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel is marking its 50th anniversary with the most extensive renovation in its history. The first phase, completed last October, featured a reimagined 15,000 sq ft Sheraton Club on the 43rd floor.
The second phase introduces two new food and beverage outlets – the recently opened Dual Citizen grab-and-go coffee shop, which transitions into a lobby bar in the evenings, and the forthcoming 43 Down restaurant which will offer handcrafted cocktails and locally inspired dishes.
The final phase will be complete this spring and include the unveiling of public spaces and amenities “that foster community-building and productivity”, followed by the reopening of the indoor/outdoor heated pool in summer 2022.
Finally, Le Centre Sheraton Montreal has unveiled 825 newly renovated guest rooms and suites, all of which include a height-adjustable work table, integrated power and charging.
The Sheraton Club on the 37th floor is expected to reopen this month with a “bold new look and breathtaking views”, and will offer complimentary breakfast, evening appetisers and a selection of refreshments.
Sheraton has nearly 20 hotels in Canada, with six slated for transformation completion by the end of 2023.
In total, Marriott intends to have transformed 50 Sheraton properties (out of a portfolio of around 450) by the end of 2022.
Hotels including the Sheraton Grand Dubai, Sheraton Tel Aviv, Sheraton Phoenix Downtown, Sheraton Denver Downtown, Sheraton Guangzhou and Sheraton Amsterdam Airport Hotel and Conference Centre all now feature the new design, as well as the new-build Sheraton Mianyang which opened last summer.
