A Mega-Makeover For The Sheraton Gateway

The Sheraton Gateway in Toronto International Airport is ready for the holiday season with the uveiling of a massive $30 million makeover.

The 484-room hotel is in the final stages of an overhaul that has completely reimagined the entire property, the only hotel directly connected to Canada’s busiest airport.

Built in 1991, the Sheraton Gateway is one of the most visited hotels in the country, but after 30 years, and hosting hundreds of thousands of guests, it was time for a major refresh.

In November 2019, Knightstone Capital Management, based in Toronto, purchased the popular property and set out to bring Sheraton’s new global vision to life. Today, the hotel is only one of a handful of properties in the world to fully debut the brand’s sophisticated new look being rolled out worldwide.

The lobby has been re-imagined as the “Public Square” of the hotel — a holistic, wide-open space that invites people to join together, or be alone amongst others, creating a sense of energy and belonging.

Stepping into the generously-sized, light-filled guest rooms that span nearly 400 sq ft, guests are greeted by a warm, residential appeal, composed of soft finishes and natural wood tones. Platform beds (in 1 King and 2 Queen configurations) are topped with luxurious Sheraton Sleep Experience mattresses and wrapped in crisp white linens. A 55-inch television is mounted to noise cancelling, woven fabric panels that make for an equally functional and stylish statement wall. A height adjustable table enables a quick transition to a standing desk. And, a bench running beneath the tv provides additional seating and quick storage.

Bathrooms feature a modern walk-in shower or bath with amenities by Gilchrist & Soames. The space is surrounded with neutral porcelain walls, while a light wood vanity, backlit mirror, polished chrome fixtures, and black accents complement the guest room design.

The only thing that hasn’t changed here are the views. All rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows offering dramatic city or runway views, a thrill for any aviation fan.

The Sheraton Club Lounge, open 24/7, takes comfort to the next level. It’s an exclusive space for Marriott Bonvoy Elite members and Sheraton Club level guests. The Club Lounge was designed to transition seamlessly and stylishly from morning to evening. Guests will find updated food and beverage offerings, access to complimentary amenities, enhanced connectivity, all in an upgraded private environment that’s conveniently located off of the lobby.

The hotel also boasts nearly 18,000 square feet of flexible, updated meeting spaces, a fully-equipped Fitness Center, indoor heated swimming pool and whirlpool. There’s even a dedicated Peloton studio in the works that will house a pair of bikes available to guests 24/7.

The hotel is now welcoming guests to experience its renovated rooms and common areas. Rates start at $229.
