The doors to Toronto’s iconic Park Hyatt Toronto are open again to guests.
The restored hotel is back in operation after being temporarily closed for renovations in 2017. And if you can’t get enough of its sophisticated service and timeless elegance, you can move in at any time.
The multi-storey building designed by KPMB Architects was developed as a mixed-use development with a hotel and Residential suites. The residences on Two Avenue Road are located in the carefully restored and preserved south tower and house 65 rental suites with one or two bedrooms, including five penthouses.
The residents enjoy the amenities of the hotel and the incomparable view of the city. The hotel has everything you need for a weekend: a soothing full-service spa, world-class fitness center, airy terrace, quality wines and food, and the promising cocktail on the 17th floor bar. You literally don’t have to leave.
If they decide to have a dinner party, residents can entertain friends and family in the private function room with quality cuisine.
The rooftop cocktail bar is now the Writers Room and has the same perfect atmosphere for classic cocktails as always.
The all-day dining restaurant Joni draws its influence from the spirit of Toronto’s vibrant arts and culture scene. With bistronomy as a source of inspiration, Joni harmonizes casual bistro dining with modern cooking techniques, with a menu that offers everything from a poached lobster with beeswax and a Hawaiian Kanpachi Crudo to a soothing chestnut capelletti or Ontario lamb.
Park Hyatt Toronto and Oxford Properties have teamed up with world-renowned designer Alessandro Munge from Studio Munge to redesign the interior of the 219-suite hotel. Munge took inspiration from Canada’s seasons and natural landscapes to redesign the hotel’s impressive interior.
“We were deeply committed to creating a travel destination that not only respects and embraces the storied history of Park Hyatt Toronto, but also reflects Toronto’s evolution into a truly global city,” said Tyler Seaman, Head of Hotels and Multi-Residential. North America at Oxford Properties. “This project is a celebration of the best of Canada. It’s reflected in its design palette, influenced by the Group of Seven, the artwork curated, and down to the materials we used, including Owen Sound’s limestone flooring. It will be one of the best hotel experiences in Canada and the best address in town to live. “
The hotel has a permanent art collection highlighting engaging pieces by renowned Canadian and Indigenous artists. Guests are greeted in the lobby by a large-format tapestry designed by Canadian artist Shannon Bool that sets the tone for an immersive and artistic stay.
The complex also has 20,000 square feet of street-level retail space across two floors of the South Tower, which spans a 30-foot facade along Bloor Street and Avenue Road.
