Fans of the Thompson Hotel Group have been anxiously awaiting word on the new Thompson Toronto. Would it open in 2009? Winter 2010? Now word is out: The sexy new property will welcome guests in June to the "eclectic arts and design neighborhood of King West Village." Joining the likes of the Hollywood Roosevelt, 60 Thompson
, and the Sax Chicago
, the Thompson Toronto will feature contemporary interiors by Studio Gaia with floor-to-ceiling windows framing impressive views of the city. From the official website:
"Its three dining facilities cater to all tastes: a modern incarnation of a traditional Diner which will be open 24 hours; upscale Italian Cuisine by Scarpetta, the acclaimed restaurant by renowned Chef Scott Conant; and Wabora Sushi. Other hotel amenities are a pool, a state of the art screening room, an exclusive lounge/club, a private rooftop bar and event space.
" Top on everyone's list? The hot scene on the roof, which has Toronto socialites in a tizzy about securing VIP keys
. HotelChatter's been keeping tabs
on the hotel's development and gave us a sneak peek
, last year, at what the rooms will look like-- Keurig coffee machine and all. Room rates in June start at $305 CAD.
