Hilton’s newest hotel lifestyle brand, Canopy by Hilton, is heading for Toronto.
The property is being developed by The Gupta Group/Easton’s Group of Hotels, a major Ontario real estate developer and will be located in The Rosedale on Bloor, a new 52-storey mixed-use condominium tower, which is under construction in mid-town Toronto. The partnership marks the first Canopy property in Canada, and developers anticipate an opening date in 2018.
The Rosedale on Bloor is located in Toronto’s popular Yorkville neighborhood, just steps from some the city’s top retail outlets.
“[We] believe Canopy by Hilton’s unique lifestyle approach to hotels will complement The Rosedale on Bloor’s outstanding location, quality and amenities,” said Steve Gupta, The Gupta Group Chairman and CEO.
The 188-room Canopy Toronto | Yorkville at The Rosedale on Bloor will occupy the first 10 storeys of the new tower. The property will have a separate entrance, lobby and amenities, including a fitness centre, yoga and weights room, outside patio, business centre, restaurant and bar. Also onsite, an indoor pool will be shared with The Rosedale on Bloor residents.
Canopy by Hilton, which was introduced by Hilton Hotels & Resorts last year, will target vibrant, culturally-rich neighborhoods” in cities around the world. Each property will reflect its local neighbourhood through design, art and food and beverage. The first Canopy property is expected to open in Reykjavik in mid-2016.
“As Canopy by Hilton continues to redefine the lifestyle segment and emerge into new territory, our brand is constantly seeking partners to align with our key pillars, and The Rosedale on Bloor in midtown Toronto served as an ideal location for our first Canopy by Hilton property in Canada,” said Gary Steffen, global head, Canopy by Hilton. “Each Canopy by Hilton location reflects the energy of its neighbourhood, while taking inspiration from its surroundings and we’re excited for our guests to experience the exclusive Yorkville district.”
