This is the second Shangri-La hotel in North America, following the acclaimed Shangri-La Vancouver. It occupies the first 17 floors of the building on University Avenue in downtown Toronto. B+H CHIL Design were responsible for the function spaces, theatre, Miraj Hammam spa, gym, and 200 guestrooms including the owner’s suite and the presidential suite.
The guestrooms feature modern bianco statuario marble washrooms with traditional Chinese vanities. The presidential suite also employs a traditional Chinese aesthetic, while delivering an elevated level of luxury. The spa provides visitors with an authentic experience of old world traditions brought into the modern day, inspired by the ancient rituals of the Middle East as well as the vineyards of Bordeaux – there are two large hammam steam rooms, a relaxing “Alhambra” room and nine treatment rooms including a dual treatment/couples suite and a Vichy room.
The Shangri-La Toronto was featured in Canadian Interiors magazine, enRoute magazine and Hospitality Design magazine.
