Downtown Toronto Qwest Renovations – Finding a Fresh Balance

July 19, 2012

From the moment you enter your suite at the Qwest location, you can’t help but notice the changes. White walls offer a crisp and clean backdrop for the contrasting black and red furnishing, creating an appealing modern atmosphere that is an integral part of the DelSuites experience.

When it came time to plan the building’s redesign, taking into consideration of the trends and needs of what our guests would like to see, “brighter suites with more colour,” as well as clean lines that highlight the open-concept suites, was the team’s top priority.

“This $.5 million transformation was necessary to meet the demands of clients who work in a fast-paced environment in the Entertainment District of Downtown Toronto.,” explains Erin Conaty, Guest Services Manager, “we wanted to create an atmosphere that is consistent with that lifestyle.”

For the redesign of the Qwest suites, Conaty enlisted the expertise of interior design firm Decorium, in order to create a theme that is consistent with the trendy Queen West neighbourhood.  Focusing on creating suites that appeal to contemporary-minded clients, elements that echoed a minimalist esthetic including floating shelving, are incorporated into the living space.

Building on a contrasting colour palette of black and white while injecting bold pops of deep red tones, the designer selected furniture that blended modern and classic pieces for a current yet relaxing living environment. In keeping with the clutter-free design, multi-functional pieces, such as the white ottoman cubes, were a must-have, providing additional seating for entertaining, while tucking away neatly when not in use.

The space saving closet organizers also increased the usable space for our guests.  Adding a finishing touch of spark to the living room, glass side table lamps also offer adjustable lighting, while modern chandelier fixtures add brightness to the dining area.  A distinct personality to each apartment, a series of black and white photographs of Toronto neighbourhoods and landmarks offer guests a visual tour of the city. “We wanted to share a little of Canada’s history, but in a modern and contemporary way,” offers Conaty.

“We are thrilled that this renovation is now 50% complete and we look forward to impressing our guests with an enhanced overall experience,” said Dan Henderson, general manager. “This transformation has allowed us to evolve into a trendy relaxing home for our loyal business travelers and individual travelers alike.”

By blending modern design with classic elements, the team created a fresh and current style for Qwest that is reflective of its historic neighbourhood.  But even if modern living isn’t on your radar, Qwest still offers options for guests who prefer a more classic style. Quite simply it’s a thoughtful touch, one that adds to the welcoming atmosphere that’s at the heart of the DelSuites experience.

Living in Between – Home Renovations

May 10, 2012

As he embarked on a major home renovation project, Mr. Taub thought booking an extended hotel stay was the only way to bypass the dust and dirt. But when a friend suggested he consider a furnished rental in one of Delsuites buildings, Taub was thankful he had another option.

With the professional assistance of Delsuites’ on-call manager, Taub was able to quickly book a suite and effortlessly relocate his family away from the mayhem.

With summer around the corner, you may be ramping up for your own home renovation.
But let’s face it living in the middle of a construction site is no one’s idea of a good time.

While you probably can’t book a vacation until the dust settles, living offsite may even help you reinstate a semblance of order into your every day.

Believe it or not, while your home may be in a state of chaos, living away from it doesn’t have to be, according to Taub, “staying with Delsuites allowed us to be self-sufficient.”

Beyond the functionality of a fully-equipped kitchen and well-appointed living room, each suite also offers the simple yet practical comforts such as coffee makers, dinnerware and linens that make it seem less like temporary accommodations and more like a place you can call home.

Even if you’re not planning home renovations this summer, your family may be making a move to a larger (or smaller) dwelling. As every homeowner knows, between buying and selling, there are bound to be delays which may temporarily leave you without a place to live.


With more than 14 locations throughout the Greater Toronto Area, Delsuites provides an accessible and affordable alternative that will fit into your budget.

“We have apartment living,” explains Taub, “for the price of a hotel stay.”

Let’s face it whether you’re going through a home renovation or uprooting your family, you’re bound have unexpected expenses, but where you live in between doesn’t have to be one of them.

In fact, at Delsuites extending your stay will actually cost you less; proving that it`s possible to find a comfortable and affordable alternative to your home sweet home.
