Thompson Hotels, the luxury, design-driven brand of elite hotels, announces that its first international property, Thompson Toronto, will open in May 2010. Located at 550 Wellington Street West, Thompson Toronto's 16-floors will feature 102 guestrooms as well as an unprecedented 30, 000 square feet of dining and event space, including a signature restaurant, operated by New York-based Scarpetta with Chef Scott Conant. Thompson Toronto is a partnership among Toronto-based companies Freed Developments. Thompson Toronto will be the most modern of the portfolio with an entirely glass exterior. The interior, designed by New York-based Studio Gaia, will feature floor-to-ceiling glass on every level creating unobstructed views of the city, making inside and out one seamless environment. The contemporary, clean look will carry through to the interior design with dark oak hardwood floors and accents of red and orange. Adding to Thompson Toronto's unique offering in the city are the size and scope of its dining and entertainment amenities. Scarpetta, the signature restaurant, will anchor the food service at Thompson Toronto, complemented by a classic 24-hour diner as well as a sushi restaurant. A stunning lobby bar, featuring a 125 foot wide by 12 foot high hand-painted, three dimensional mural of Toronto's skyline by renowned Spanish artist Javier Mariscal, will welcome guests and locals alike. Thompson Toronto's private 16th floor - with a panoramic view of the city - will be comprised of a rooftop pool area, complete with seasonal cabanas, and an indoor lounge open year-round with a fireplace and bar. A 40-seat screening room with state-of-the-art projection and sound equipment will allow the hotel to offer regular film programming and special events for television and movie features. A conference room, function room, fitness facility and yoga studio, all showcasing state-of-the-art equipment with refined design, complete Thompson Toronto's many signature features.
