New Castle Hotels & Resorts assumed management of the 395-room Westin Prince Toronto in West Toronto, Ontario. The hotel joins New Castle’s portfolio of Westin hotels including the Westin Nova Scotian—the brand’s first franchise—The Westin Portland Harborview in Portland Maine and the Westin Jekyll Island.  

“This is a legacy Westin property with 40 years of 4-diamond status. We look forward to guiding it into the future with a sharp focus on Westin’s strategically developed, highly recognizable branding and New Castle’s well-regarded culture of mutual respect,” Gerry Chase, president and COO of New Castle Hotels and Resorts, said in a statement.

The Westin Prince Toronto is designed to cater to an international audience, and offers Japanese, Chinese and Persian restaurants as well as a three-meal dining room, Seasons at the Prince. With its 30,000 square feet of meeting space, the Westin Prince can also accommodate groups as large as 700 in both indoor and outdoor venues. The hotel includes an outdoor heated pool, running trails, tennis courts and a fitness center with whirlpool.
