Easton’s Group of Hotels recently announced the “topping off” of its upcoming Canopy by Hilton Toronto Yorkville Hotel, marking the completion of its structural framework.
The 184-room hotel is Canada’s firs Canopy by Hilton, Hilton’s luxurious lifestyle hotel brand. This is slated to open in November 2022, steps away from the heart of Yorkville, one of Toronto’s most desirable neighbourhoods and shopping destinations.
“Today is a significant milestone for the construction of this property and a testament to the skill and diligence of all parties involved,” says Reetu Gupta, chairwoman and ambassadress of The Gupta Group and Easton’s Group of Hotels.
“We’re excited to bring Canada’s very first Canopy by Hilton Hotel to Toronto. The hotel with its premium location will bring a unique blend of luxury, convenience, and urban living, offering a new way for guests near and far to experience the city.”
The facility will include a modern café with retail space on the main floor, a restaurant with views of Bloor St. and the Rosedale Valley, an indoor pool, yoga and fitness rooms and meeting spaces.
Hotel rooms will be on second to ninth floors, while the remainder 55 floors being residential units.
Studio Munge led the hotel’s design with layered interiors defined by curved edges and organic motifs. This will be complemented by an impressive local art collection, which illustrates the intricate connection between nature, people, and urbanism. As part of the experience, guest rooms will be called “Just-Right Rooms” because they provide intuitive comfort with a place for everything.
The hotel is expected to open in November.
