Marriott Hotel at Toronto Eaton Centre
In Joint Venture with: WZMH Partnership
Client: Marriott Hotel Corporation, Cadillac Fairview Corporation Ltd.
Size: 401,000 sq.ft. (37,000 sq.m.)
Located next to the Toronto Eaton Centre, this 459-room hotel features two restaurants, a lounge and recreation/ fitness facilities including an indoor swimming pool and health club at rooftop level. Additional amenities include an 8,200-square foot Grand Ballroom, 4,400-square foot Junior Ballroom, six meeting rooms, permanent boardroom, and 21,000 square feet of pre-function assembly space.
The building was carefully designed to preserve the views and scale of the adjacent existing, historic Timothy Eaton church.
A tree-lined pedestrian walkway was designed to connect this mid-block church to the nearby city street. An entire wing of the hotel was backed against an existing blank façade of a multi-level department store in order to animate this “dead” wall.
