Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants will be opening a four-star Kimpton hotel in Bloor-Yorkville in Toronto in mid-2018.
Owned and developed by InnVest Hotels LP, one of the largest hotel owners in Canada, Kimpton’s new boutique hotel in Toronto will be a full conversion of the current Holiday Inn Toronto Bloor Yorkville.
The revitalized and re-concepted 13-storey property will comprise 189 guest rooms, including 18 suites and one Presidential Suite, 2,000 square feet of ground level meeting space and a Bloor Street-facing leased restaurant and bar.
Additional amenities will include a fitness center, complimentary PUBLIC bikes, yoga mats in every room, morning coffee and tea, and nightly social hour.
Mike DeFrino, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants’ CEO, said: “We’re looking forward to entering the Canadian market and introducing our unique heartfelt service to Toronto. We’re thrilled to be working with InnVest to open the first boutique hotel that speaks to the city’s dynamic cultural scene.”
Andrew Higgs, senior director of asset management for InnVest Hotels, commented: “We see Kimpton as the perfect partner for our new four-star boutique hotel. Kimpton’s known as a leader in adaptive reuse and a company with a proven track record of inclusivity and diversity. Both of these will make the new Kimpton Bloor-Yorkville a successful and positively contributing member of the neighborhood, setting the property up for success from the start.”
