Along with the staff, Lewis says the flexibility of advanced booking, means that accommodation needs can be easily managed long before her artists arrive.

Toronto’s Distillery District

Distillery District

Situated in the heart of Toronto`s downtown core, in recent years this historic community has become a mecca for artists, artisans, theatre and restaurants. A pedestrian (or bicycle) friendly neighbourhood makes it a family-friendly destination that will keep everyone easily entertained. Attend on weekends and explore one of the many festivals and events that take place throughout the year.

While restaurants are abound, the Distillery`s close proximity to St. Lawrence Market means you`ll have plenty of reasonable dining options and selections of fresh groceries from fish mongers to fruit farmers and everything in between.

Beaches

With several kilometers of sandy beach, beach volleyball nets, playgrounds and picnic areas, the Toronto Beaches are a natural summer destination for anyone looking to escape the heat.

Take a relaxing stroll along the boardwalk which spans a kilometer stretch along Lake Ontario`s glistening shoreline. Whether you take a dip in theLake or board a watercraft, the Beaches offer plenty of activity for all ages.

For shoppers and foodies, a short walk north to Queen Street offers a wide array of local shops and restaurants that are not only popular among residents but also offer unique gift ideas for travelers.

Bringing together nature and culture in a community-focused setting, Evergreen Brickworks is a great way to explore the city`s local offerings under one roof. Located in the heart of Toronto`s Don Valley, this public space is home to garden market, farmer`s market and art installations as well as hosting environmental exhibits and special events.

During the summer months, weekly film and pizza nights in the BMO Atrium and Chimney Court, respectively, round out the evenings while the winter months are filled with skating at Koerner Gardens and other cooler weather activities.

While you are welcome to explore Evergreen Brickworks on your own, for a nominal donation ($5 is suggested) you can take advantage of a tour that will get you familiar with each of the individual areas.

Comprised of three major islands, eight islands with names and several without, but each offers a unique experience. Among the more well-known, Centre Island is home to Centreville, a family amusement park that features rides such as a historic merry-go-round, bikes, paddleboats,  in-line skating rentals and plenty of room for picnicking.

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.
