Following the renovation of the 43rd-floor Club Lounge in October 2021, Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel has completed the latest phase of its extensive transformation. This summer, the hotel will welcome travellers and locals to its fully reimagined lobby level which includes two new food and beverage offerings, private collaboration Studios and soundproof Booths, upgraded porte cochère, and an outdoor pool garden.
Marking the largest renovation of the hotel’s almost 50-year history, the modernized look exemplifies Sheraton’s new design as part of its global transformation journey, drawing on the brand’s roots as a community hub for locals and guests to create an intuitive and holistic experience with spaces to connect, be productive, and help travellers feel part of the local community.
In addition to seamless technology integration and an elevated food and beverage philosophy, the layered design balances a sense of timelessness with a fresh and modern feel, that aims to create an environment where guests feel comfortable and at ease, whether working, meeting or relaxing. Additionally, as guests enter through the modernized porte cochère, they are welcomed by a local art program that tells the story of Toronto.
The first of Sheraton Centre’s new food and beverage concepts is inspired by eras past. 43 Down is a departure from the traditional hotel restaurant. With its beverage-forward concept, 43 Down focuses on mixology as an art form. Delivering perfectly on the classics through handcrafted cocktails and locally inspired flavours from Toronto’s diverse culinary scene, 43 Down blends intimacy and connectedness, acting as a backdrop for an informal business meeting or social gathering with friends.
The second, Dual Citizen, offers coffeehouse-style grab and go during the day, while transitioning to a lobby bar in the evenings. Centrally located in the hotel’s bustling lobby, Dual Citizen’s elevated menu, lounge-like furniture, and communal tables places guests in the social heart of the hotel.
This summer, the hotel will also unveil an upgraded pool and outdoor area. Framed by lush greenery, the year-round pool and 6,000-square-foot Urban and Waterfall Garden is an urban oasis in the heart of downtown Toronto, offering a premiere location for weddings, social gatherings, and events.
