Marriott International has signed an agreement with British Columbia-based Larco Hospitality to bring the first W Hotel to Toronto.

The nine-story, 255-room property, currently the Toronto Marriott Bloor Yorkville, will undergo a $40-million redesign of the property’s guestrooms, restaurants and amenities, and re-open as W Toronto in summer 2020.

W Toronto will feature multiple food and beverage venues, including an indoor/outdoor lobby bar and lounge equipped with a DJ booth/recording studio for collaborating, broadcasting and recording podcasts; a specialty restaurant and a ninth-floor, roof-top restaurant accessible from street level via elevator; and a coffee and cocktail bar. The hotel also will feature a 3,300-square-foot fitness facility and 4,800 square feet of meeting space.

While occupancy largely was flat week over week during the seven-day period ending Sept. 19, rate and revenue both declined.

The final day of Hotel Optimization Part 2 focused on booking channels, cleanliness protocols and maximizing revenue in the age of COVID-19.

The Urban Park Hotel Collection is currently looking at hotels with 25 to 85 rooms, which will include both independent and franchise properties.
