TORONTO — New Castle Hotels and Resorts has taken over management of the 395-room Westin Prince Toronto.
The AAA 4-Diamond rated hotel joins New Castle’s portfolio of Westin hotels including the Westin Nova Scotian, the brand’s first franchise, The Westin Portland Harborview in Portland, ME and the Westin Jekyll Island in Georgia.
“This is a legacy Westin property with 40 years of 4-Diamond status. We look forward to guiding it into the future with a sharp focus on Westin’s strategically developed, highly recognizable branding and New Castle’s well-regarded culture of mutual respect,” says New Castle President and COO, Gerry Chase.
With 30,000 square feet of meeting space, the Westin Prince can accommodate groups as large as 700 in both indoor and outdoor venues. The hotel has several dining venues as well as an outdoor heated pool, running trails, tennis courts and a fitness centre with whirlpool and sits on 15 acres of rolling parkland, with an adjacent golf course.
“The Westin Prince is notable as an urban oasis, giving Toronto’s business and leisure visitors the best opportunities to engage in and escape from this dynamic city,” added Chase. “We welcome this well-known Toronto landmark to our growing portfolio of distinctive North American hotels.”
New Castle owns and/or operates six other hotels in Atlantic Canada and will open a dual-brand project in Dartmouth, NS next spring.
