Sheraton Centre Toronto announces $90M renovation

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide will embark on a $90-million renovation of the Sheraton Centre Toronto, resulting in a floor-to-ceiling transformation of the hotel's 1,371 guest rooms and suites.

The revival of the Canadian flagship Sheraton property will begin in early November, which will update the hotel's guestrooms with new colors, graphic patterns and clean lines inspired by Sheraton’s brand design, as well as a new energy-efficient HVAC system. 

This refurbishment is slated for completion in 2015.

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The completed renovation will include full guestroom and suite refurbishment, as well as replacement of all floor and wall finishes in public corridors and hallways. As a part of the re-design, the hotel will add two new guestrooms, bringing the total room count up to 1,373. After completion of the renovation all guestrooms and suites will have new casegoods, seating, lighting, mirrors and window treatments. 

Additional features will include: wall-mounted 50-inch flat-panel televisions in all guestrooms and suites; all-white Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed; completely renovated bathrooms with low-flow toilets, shower heads and faucets reducing water consumption throughout the building (some of the renovated bathrooms will have walk-in showers); an energy efficient, Variable Refrigerant Flow HVAC system which allows guests to control the thermostat in their room; and technologically-enabled guestrooms with wired and wireless Internet platform.

Earlier this month, the hotel completed a $13-million retrofitting of all guestroom windows, helping to reduce energy consumption and making the hotel more energy efficient overall. This further reinforces the hotel’s commitment and focus on reducing energy consumption by 30 percent and water consumption by 20 percent by the year 2020. 

Additionally, the hotel recently completed renovations to its meeting space, refurbishing the meeting rooms on the mezzanine and 4th floor, as well as expanding to more than 130,000 square feet with the addition of the Provincial and Willow Ballrooms. 

Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel is connected to the PATH, a 16-mile underground network of shops, including the Eaton Centre Mall. The hotel offers signature Sheraton brand amenities, including the [email protected] experienced with Microsoft, a Sheraton Fitness Centre, Sheraton Social Hour providing travelers with access to wines through weekly evening tasting events, and the all-white Sweet Sleeper bed. The hotel has the city’s largest indoor-outdoor swimming pool.
