Design Thinking: Located next to the Toronto Eaton Centre, the 17-storey hotel was carefully designed to preserve the views and scale of the adjacent existing historic Church of the Holy Trinity. The hotel spans from Bay Street towards the church, and shifts slightly mid-block with an entire wing connect to an existing blank façade of a multi-level department store. This shift protects the heritage of the Church and animates this empty wall. A tree-lined pedestrian walkway connects church to Bay Street, directly south of the hotel.
Key Features: The 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, 6 meeting rooms, a boardroom, and 21,000 square feet of pre-function assembly space.
