Toronto welcomed a new flagship hotel in the downtown core last week. The new Holiday Inn on Carlton Street has been rebranded and redesigned to create a modern and intimate hotel experience that is unique to a large scale hotel chain.
If you are thinking this is a mediocre pit stop along your journeys, think again. The renovated property has undergone a $20 million dollar facelift and boasts 513 rooms over 23 floors and features 9,000 square feet of multi-functional event space. Stay fit while you are away home in their gym and indoor swimming pool or catchup on your reading as you lounge on their stunning outdoor patio.
If you are a foodie, you won’t have to go past the main floor to indulge in culinary delights all prepared by renowned executive chef, Chris Moreland. Dining options at The Carlton include exotic dishes created with locally sourced ingredients. While the Thirty Bar & Lounge is the perfect modern and relaxed environment to enjoy cocktails and tapas.
Located at 30 Carlton Street in the Downtown Yonge neighbourhood, the Holiday Inn is steps away from the Eaton Centre, Dundas Square, Ryerson University and hundreds of restaurants and shops. This is also a hip + urban location for both business and vacation travelers especially if you are visiting the Toronto Street Festival or during Carribana and Pride Week. Standard rooms start at $180 per night.
