DoubleTree by Hilton has the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Toronto Downtown in the heart of the city’s financial, research and shopping districts. The former Metropolitan Hotel Toronto has completed a multi-million dollar renovation, which will conclude in the spring. The transformation is being led by the hotel’s new ownership and management company, Bayview Hospitality Group.
“The opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Toronto Downtown is a huge thrill for our brand, as it underscores DoubleTree by Hilton’s expanded presence in Canada with four new hotels in the country in just three months,” says John Greenleaf, global head at DoubleTree by Hilton. “With its central location and upscale offerings, this hotel is ideally-suited to accommodate both business and leisure guests in Toronto.”
As the landmark 26-story, 486-room hotel continues its property-wide renovation, guests will experience a steady rollout of updates, including modern design enhancements throughout and fully-renovated guest rooms. With 13,000ft² of meeting and banquet facilities – including a 3484ft² ballroom – DoubleTree by Hilton Toronto Downtown offers a comprehensive solution for meetings and events.
“We are excited to open our doors and welcome guests to DoubleTree by Hilton Toronto Downtown, and are thrilled to become part of this globally-recognized and respected brand,” says Umesh Srivastava, general manager at DoubleTree by Hilton Toronto Downtown. “With our dedicated new hospitality team and the building’s stunning transformation nearing completion, we are eager to welcome guests to an exemplary experience underscored by the first-rate service culture for which the DoubleTree by Hilton brand is known all around the world.”
