Nathan Phillips Square is the heart of downtown Toronto with a lively yet laid-back atmosphere. The newly transformed Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, across the street from the main square, has a similar sense of vivacity and easygoing sophistication. On a recent trip, there was a humming bustle of locals and travelers alike in the inviting lobby, which recently had a modern makeover. With cozy lounge areas, flexible gathering spaces, and artistic nods to Toronto, the hotel is the ideal resting point for business and leisure travelers who want to stay near the city’s main attractions and gathering points.
Rooms and amenities at Sheraton Centre Toronto
The Sheraton Centre Toronto offers an array of room styles from standard rooms to spacious suites that are designed to accommodate various preferences and budgets. During my stay, I had the privilege of experiencing one of the Club guestrooms with a stunning view of Nathan Phillips Square. The room itself was thoughtfully designed, featuring a comfortable king bed and a cozy seating area. The large windows framed the captivating cityscape.
A stay in a Club guestroom comes with access to the 43rd floor’s exclusive Club Lounge. Here, a sumptuous breakfast buffet starts your day right and evening appetizers are available to start your night — and a beautiful elevated view is always right outside the floor-to-ceiling windows.
The hotel is brimming with amenities that cater to the diverse needs and desires of its guests. The recent partnership with Reese’s Book Club and Sheraton’s new program, Gatherings by Sheraton, adds an extra layer of enrichment to the guest experience. The Reese’s Book Club x Sheraton Lobby Library is a pop-up space within the hotel from January 8 through mid February where guests can explore a curated selection of books, participate in book club meet-ups, and engage in author events. It’s a literary oasis within the epicenter of the hotel.
Apart from this cool addition, the hotel certainly acknowledges a traveler’s leisurely needs. With a well-equipped fitness center, and an inviting indoor/outdoor heated pool, everything is tailored to ensure a relaxing stay. The commitment to enhancing the guest experience is evident.
Sheraton Centre Toronto restaurants and bars
On the lobby level, you’ll find 43 Down, a cocktail lounge known for its locally inspired drinks and tasty small bites. Theatrically pleasing cocktails, such as smoking in the sidecar that comes to the table under a smoke-filled cloche, are the stars of the menu.
For a casual bite to eat, choose from Dual Citizen’s quick grab-and-go options, coffees, and cocktails. Comfy sofas and long community tables spread alongside the kiosk restaurant, creating a social space and workspace in one.
