TORONTO — The Westin Prince Hotel, a landmark in northeast Toronto on York Mills Road, will soon become Pan Pacific Toronto.
Pan Pacific Toronto will be the fifth hotel for Pan Pacific Hotels Group in North America, joining other hotels in Vancouver, Whistler in British Columbia and Seattle.
The hotel’s evolution started earlier this year, with a $15 million revitalization for the property’s 409 guestrooms and public spaces.
Originally opened in 1974 as the Prince Hotel Toronto, the property was one of the first and longest-running hotels to be awarded the AAA Four Diamond accreditation in Canada.
“We are delighted to fly the Pan Pacific flag in Toronto,” says Choe Peng Sum, CEO, Pan Pacific Hotels Group. “As an international brand, Pan Pacific will bring to the hotel not only its guests from North America where we have four other hotels, we are also able to reach out to the Asia Pacific feeder markets where we have over 40 properties including Australia and China which are among the top five source markets into Canada.”
In addition to several dining venues, Pan Pacific Toronto will also have 30,000 square feet of meeting spaces including 18 meeting rooms and a ballroom for up to 700 guests. Most of the meeting rooms have windows and natural light. Events are also possible on the greens.
