Coming Soon: York Region's First Truly Opulent Hotel, The Toronto Marriott Markham
Anticipation is growing as Toronto Marriott Markham puts the finishing touches on what's to become the ultimate business and leisure traveler experience right in the heart of downtown Markham when its doors open late March 2018.
As part of the ongoing reinvention of Marriott Hotels, the signature brand of Marriott International, Toronto Marriott Markham will be the first and onlyelegantly-
Pegged as the hallmark luxury meeting and hotel space in the $3-billion, European-inspired downtown community project being developed by Remington Developments, the hotel will deliver inspirational, personalized service that is perfect for high-end corporate meetings as well as bespoke social events. The Marriott brand was selected by the developer for this project for its elite brand cachet, world-renowned for their hotels' distinctive, attentive and intuitive travel experience. The Toronto Marriott Markham is one of first hotels within the brand's portfolio across North America to introduce an artful yet modern, sleek design.
It's this refined focus on the design aesthetic that lends itself so readily to the vision of this new-build hotel, promising the discerning traveler an immersive and visceral experience; visually-dynamic, and borrowing inspiration from the community.
The lavishly appointed hotel whose aspirational vision was brought to life by the finest architects, designers, and landscape architects—including design firm IIBYIV Design and Quadrangle Architects, and was purposefully designed to encourage an experiential showcase for travelers and residents alike—a place to rest, meet, celebrate, be and be seen. From the delicate curves that invite guests to meander and explore from space to space, to the exquisite finishes and décor, through to the Great Room, Draco—which takes its name from the stunningly-crafted light feature which anchors the space; the hand-crafted glass installation, resembling a dragon's tail, is a homage to the Chinese constellation it takes its name from, evoking the brand values of success, prosperity and good fortune. Legend has it that the name Draco means 'to see or to watch', the perfect designation for what is sure to become the hub of Downtown Markham's social scene.
The park-like community setting surrounding the hotel offers convenience to travelers; urban yet walkable to all downtown amenities, with easy access to major highways, and conveniently close to tourist attractions like Main Street Unionville, the Pan Am Centre, and the newly built York University Campus. It will house rotating art installations throughout as part of the Art Walk, a pedestrian-gallery spanning the newly developing downtown area.
The guestroom design is simple yet sophisticated, offering LEED-Silver sustainable operations with progressive, state-of-the-
"We want our guests to experience forward-thinking, aesthetically pleasing spaces that help foster their inventive nature," said Matthew Carroll, vice president, Marriott Hotels. "Marriott Hotels has consistently pushed the boundaries of innovation in travel to create experiences that inspire and push our guests' creativity."
Proud of the revamped, business and family amenities it's set to offer, the Toronto Marriott Markham is truly charting the course for all hoteliers and travelers across the country, rounding out their commitment to providing every guest with the ultimate getaway experience.
