Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel Completes Two-Year $120 Million Renovation
The Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel in downtown Toronto has completed a two-year, $120 million renovation, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide announced last week.
The project included a complete overhaul of the hotel's 1,372 guest rooms and suites, each of which was updated with new carpeting, vinyl, drapery, furniture, televisions, mattresses and bedding. Bedside tables now feature multiple electrical outlets for charging electronic devices, while overhauled bathrooms include walk-in showers and water-efficient toilets, faucets and showerheads.
The hotel's 130,000 square feet of meeting space also has been updated, with two new ballrooms added. The Lower Concourse Convention floor now features a state-of-the-art lighting-control system as well as upgraded acoustic walls, new carpet and fresh vinyl and paint. The Grand Ballroom now offers more than 110 new structural rigging points to assist with staging special events. Eight smaller meeting rooms on the fourth floor of the hotel's Queen Tower were redone as well. The property has also upgraded its wireless Internet infrastructure to increase wireless speeds and bandwidth throughout the property.
"Toronto has blossomed into becoming one of the top destinations for both leisure and business travelers alike, and an important market for the Sheraton brand to be represented in," said Bob Jacobs, vice president of brand management, Sheraton North America. "This renovation underscores our focus on continuously enhancing our portfolio, as well as evolving the guest experience to deliver an effortless travel experience for our guests."
