The Westin Prince Hotel was rebranded to Pan Pacific Toronto.
Pan Pacific Toronto will be the fifth hotel for Pan Pacific Hotels Group in North America, joining other hotels in Vancouver, Whistler in British Columbia and Seattle.
“We are delighted to fly the Pan Pacific flag in Toronto,” said Choe Peng Sum, chief executive officer, Pan Pacific Hotels Group.
“As an international brand, Pan Pacific will bring to the hotel not only its guests from North America where we have four other hotels, we are also able to reach out to the Asia Pacific feeder markets where we have over 40 properties including Australia and China which are among the top five source markets into Canada.”
The property is located in North East Toronto in 15 acres of scenic parkland and is a well-known landmark.
The hotel offers 409 guest rooms and suites, with many overlooking the lush greenery surrounding the hotel and the cityscape beyond.
Pan Pacific Toronto is close to the vibrancy of Toronto downtown while just a 30-minute drive from Toronto Pearson International Airport.
Three of Toronto's largest malls—Yorkdale Mall, Scarborough Town Center and Fairview Mall—as well as the world-class Ontario Science Centre, are a 15-minute drive from the hotel.
Within half an hour's drive from the hotel are Canada's largest zoo and theme park: the Toronto Zoo and Canada's Wonderland.
The hotel is known for its restaurants, especially Katsura, one of Toronto's most respected Japanese restaurants with a sushi bar, traditional teppanyaki cooking tables, and private tatami rooms. The restaurant serves up the finest fish and seafood, expertly prepared by its in-house chefs in an elegant ambiance.
Seasons, its all-day dining restaurant, invites diners to nourish their soul in a bright and airy setting overlooking the wooded gardens.
Pan Pacific Toronto has 30,000 square feet of meeting spaces including 18 meeting rooms and a ballroom which can hold up to 700 guests.
Most of the meeting rooms have windows and natural light. Events are also possible on the greens.
For relaxation, there are various options including an outdoor heated pool, walking paths, a tennis court and a fitness center with a whirlpool.
