“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.”
The hotel now offers more than 130,000 sq. ft. of premium meeting and event space with the addition of the Willow and Provincial ballrooms. The Lower Concourse Convention floor, which includes the Grand Ballroom, Sheraton Hall and the Osgoode Ballroom, features a new state of the art Lutron lighting control system, allowing clients the flexibility to control and adjust lighting in the rooms via a loaned iPad®. More than 110 new structural rigging points throughout the Grand Ballroom allow 1,000lbs. per rigging point, giving planners and design companies tremendous flexibility when staging special events. Upgraded acoustic walls, new carpet, vinyl and paint complete the convention floor refurbishment and upgrade. The eight smaller meeting rooms on the fourth floor of the Queen Tower were also redone, and all carpeting, vinyl, fabrics and upholstery in both the meeting space and guest rooms meet Starwood’s low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) requirement.
As part of the renovation, the hotel now features intuitive technology with its revamped wireless Internet infrastructure and installation of new access points, resulting in the fastest Internet and largest bandwidth among Greater Toronto area hotels.
“Our fresh new look and comprehensive tech enhancements will enable our guests to experience a more seamless and comfortable stay at our hotel, whether for leisure or as part of a large conference,” said David Connor, Area Managing Director for Starwood Canada and General Manager, Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel. “When combined with our associate’s commitment to ensuring memorable guest experiences, we’re confident that Sheraton Centre Toronto will be the hotel brand of choice for modern travelers visiting this vibrant, buzzing city.”
