The day has finally arrived! Toronto’s new, and highly anticipated, sustainable sanctuary is open, and we couldn’t be more excited. Built in partnership with Mohari Hospitality, 1 Hotel Toronto is the sixth property in 1 Hotels portfolio. To commemorate the grand opening, 1 Hotel Toronto is hosting a ‘Tree Planting ceremony where they are going to locations around The 6ix planting native 2021 trees.
1 Hotel Toronto
This sustainable hotel is not only talking the talk, but walking the walk when it comes to being environmentally friendly. Not only is 1 Hotel’s on-site composting program fuelling their multiple gardens, but they are also planning to divert a significant amount of waste from landfills, and is powered by renewable energy sources.
This 112-room hotel features both raw and textile materials locally sourced from around Ontario. Each room comes loaded with amenities, including: heated floors, an array of plants, organic cotton linens, yoga mats, organic bath products, and an in-room water filtration system with reusable tumblers and carafes. 1 Hotel Toronto also features a rooftop pool, The Fieldhouse fitness facilities, and their locally curated retail space, Goodthings.
“1 Hotel Toronto sets a new standard for responsible luxury hospitality and serves as a city escape where guests can connect with nature,” said 1 Hotels Founder and CEO & Chairman of Starwood Capital Group, Barry Sternlicht in a press release. “1 Hotels embraces the idea that living well includes protecting the natural beauty around us and we look forward to introducing our mission to the like-minded city of Toronto.”
Multiple Food Concepts
1 Hotel Toronto has not one, not two, but FOUR restaurant concepts for guests to choose from. Each with their own distinct vibe.
1 Kitchen offers plant-based food and drinks, cold-pressed juices and sustainably harvested fish and proteins. This restaurant offers indoor and outdoor dining, and is open all day.
Located in the centre of 1 Hotel Toronto, Flora Lounge is the perfect spot for some delicious cocktails and a light snack.
This unique event space is the home of all 1 Hotel Toronto’s plants. Grown in-house to supply to all restaurant concepts, this beautiful space can fit up to 40 for an intimate gathering.
This is where you can pick up some of 1 Hotel’s farm-fresh fare. Open to hotel guests as well as the public.
Aside from the four concepts mentioned, two more will be opening soon. Casa Madera, a coastal cuisine inspired concept; and Harriet’s Toronto, their rooftop, open concept sushi bar.
