When designing the renovation of the 110,000 sqft iconic hotel, one of the main design objectives was maintaining the historic traits of its traditional bones while creating a luxurious contemporary and functional design. In contrasting the new elements with the old, classical motifs were embraced and reinvigorated into a contemporary form. The hotel’s existing antique chandeliers and gilded wall mouldings were complimented with new dark wood accents, light marble stone floors, and a sophisticated colour palette of grey, blues, and golds which harmoniously blend the old and the new.

The lounge was transformed by designing a feature bar that overlooks the park, creating a visual connection between the interior space and the exterior landscape. The restaurant displays industrial vintage accents and traditional elegance to create a cozy environment, catering to a variety of occasions and clientele.
Polished chrome, rich Sapele wood, natural stone, elegant mirrors, and vintage accents elevate the guestrooms and suites providing a luxurious hotel experience that takes guests to another time era in modern day style. The suites offer a restful environment with regal accents of burgundy, gold, and indigo paired with furniture and casegoods constructed with ornate complex detailing that resonates Victorian classical aesthetics.
The guestrooms and suites exude sophistication and calmness with warm colours of taupe and cool greys. Repeated applications of damasks pattern textiles and finishes reflecting those found in public areas were used to maintain a cohesive look, balancing the remaining areas of the hotel.
