Shangri-La Toronto Sneak Peek

By Anne Dimon

Shangri-La Toronto's 42-seat screening room.

A feng shui feel and understated elegance, with Asian touches, anchor the 202-room Shangri-La Hotel Toronto, slated to open Aug. 31 at the corner of University Avenue and Richmond Street, in the downtown core.

Nine conference rooms – with Toronto landmark names such as Osgoode, Queen’s Park and Museum – are featured on the natural light-bathed third floor.

The hotel’s meeting distinguishes itself via a large outdoor terrace housing an Asian-inspired garden, retractable canopy and striking city views.

Additional ‘wow’ factors include a 42-seat screening room with plush leather chairs; crystal chandeliers throughout and a ballroom with a dividing air-wall that rises to (or descends from) the ceiling – perfect for working a “big reveal” into an event.

Other amenities include the Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie Paris; a tea library; saltwater pool; spacious gym; and all-day Bosk restaurant.

Connected to the hotel is acclaimed New York chef David Chang’s group of restaurants – four in all, spread out over a three-storey space – expected to launch within the next two months, according to a source at the restaurant.
