TORONTO — Toronto has welcomed a new ace of a property – the Ace Hotel Toronto, now open for booking.
Located in the city’s historic Garment District at 51 Camden Street, the 123-room, ground-up project designed by Shim-Sutcliffe Architects is within walking distance of famed music venues, galleries, bars and restaurants, at a nexus of neighbourhoods including Queen West, Downtown and Chinatown. It’s also anchored by Alder, a seasonal wood-fired restaurant from Chef Patrick Kriss, which will open for dinner service on Aug. 9.
Other highlights include The Lobby, featuring a menu of drinks and small plates and open-to-all arts, culture and music programming, a rooftop bar and lounge called Evangeline (opening soon) that will host DJs every weekend, original artworks by primarily Canadian artists, an in-room vinyl collection curated by independent Toronto record label Arts & Crafts, as well as three multi-functional event spaces.
“Toronto is a city that embraces originality and is rooted in the same open-to-all philosophy that founded Ace,” said Brad Wilson, CEO, Atelier Ace / Ace Hotel Group. “We could not be more proud to open Ace Hotel Toronto. The architectural magnificence of Shim-Sutcliffe Architects’ work has created a bona fide wonder.”
Rates start at $399. For more information go to www.acehotel.com/toronto.
