TORONTO—From IncentiveWorks in Toronto, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. will embark on a $90-million renovation of the Sheraton Centre Toronto, resulting in a floor-to-ceiling transformation of the hotel's 1,371 guestrooms and suites.
The revival of the Canadian flagship Sheraton property will begin in early November. It will include graphic patterns and clean lines inspired by Sheraton’s brand design, and a new energy efficient HVAC system. This refurbishment is slated for completion in 2015.
The completed renovation will include full guestroom and suite refurbishment, as well as replacement of all floor and wall finishes in public corridors and hallways. As a part of the re-design, the hotel will add two new guestrooms bringing the total room count up to 1,373. After completion of the renovation all guestrooms and suites will feature new casegoods, seating, lighting, mirrors and window treatments.
Additional features will include wall-mounted, 50-in., flat-panel televisions; all-white Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed; completely renovated bathrooms featuring low-flow toilets, shower heads and faucets; an energy-efficient, Variable Refrigerant Flow HVAC system, which allows guests to control the thermostat in their room; and technologically-enabled guestrooms featuring wired and wireless Internet platform.
Earlier this month, the hotel completed a $13-million retrofitting of all guestroom windows helping to reduce energy consumption, reinforcing the hotel’s commitment and focus on reducing energy consumption by 30%and water consumption by 20% by the year 2020, according to the company.
Additionally, the hotel recently completed renovations to its meeting space, refurbishing the meeting rooms on the Mezzanine and 4th floor as well as expanding to more than 130,000 sq. ft. with the addition of the Provincial and Willow Ballrooms.
