If you thought Toronto’s entertainment scene couldn’t get any better, think again. Canada’s largest gaming venue, Great Canadian Casino Toronto, continues to impress by announcing the opening of its premium hotel facility. Nestled within the casino’s new CA$1-billion campus, the hotel marks another milestone in the entertainment company’s expansion strategy.
The Hotel – Where Comfort Meets Extravagance
The Hotel adds a new dimension to the Great Canadian Casino Toronto, enticing visitors with 400 first-class rooms, nearly half of them offering enchanting views of the nearby Woodbine Racetrack. Ranging from 400 to 840 square feet, the spacious rooms cater to an array of guest requirements, ensuring the most luxurious stay.
Guests are spoilt for choice with the option of premium king and queen rooms, and for those seeking a bit of extra pizzazz, the King Corner Suite, and the Two-Bedroom Suite won’t disappoint. Rooms come equipped with the usual suspects – a 55” Smart TV, in-room safe, complimentary Wi-Fi, mini fridge, and a coffee maker – but it’s the additional features that set them apart.
Dive into Wellness and Entertainment
The luxury doesn’t end there. The Hotel plans to unveil a wellness area that will feature a state-of-the-art fitness center, a heated indoor pool, a hot tub, and a steam room. Meanwhile, card sharks can anticipate the launch of the Poker Room, offering 30 tables on a private floor, a range of ‘No Limit’ and ‘Limit’ stakes, and, for those waiting, electronic table games and slots.
In terms of dining and entertainment, the Great Canadian Casino Toronto holds its own. The property features an array of dining options, including the high-end Copperhorn Steakhouse and the laid-back CA.SU.AL gastropub. For fast-food enthusiasts, the Food Hall offers popular choices like Tim Hortons and Big Smoke Burger.
Great Canadian Casino Toronto: More Than Just a Casino
By unveiling a state-of-the-art 5,000-person entertainment venue, in partnership with Live Nation, the resort looks set to become a prime destination for live events. And it’s not just about the games and the grub – the resort also hosts an impressive collection of public art. The $5 million worth of artwork scattered across the property is a testament to the resort’s commitment to local artists and diverse communities.
The property has sustainability at its heart. A testament to this is the 250,000 square feet of green roof, the second-largest in Canada. Furthermore, solar panel canopies and electric vehicle parking spots reduce the site’s carbon footprint, making the casino a haven for eco-conscious guests.
Economic Contributions and Further Developments
It’s clear that the resort is a boon not only for entertainment enthusiasts but also for the economy. With a total investment of approximately $1 billion, the resort is set to generate an estimated $500 million in economic benefits for Ontario. The resort has also created job opportunities for nearly 2,000 team members, enhancing the region’s prosperity.
Despite some early feedback on the ongoing construction and table limits, the resort’s grandeur and array of offerings seem to outweigh the initial hiccups. Guests looking for an elevated gaming experience, a luxury stay, or simply a relaxing wellness retreat can now book their spot at the new premium hotel via the operator’s official website.
The future of Canada’s gaming and hospitality industry shines bright, with Great Canadian Casino Toronto at its helm. With a continued focus on providing top-notch entertainment, it looks set to cement its place as Canada’s premier leisure and entertainment destination.
