Toronto Canada – Hotel Market Report 2020

The summer 2020 opening of 1 Hotel Toronto, a sustainable living retreat and the first of its kind in Canada, is proof of the confidence that investors have in this city’s innovative hotel market. Canada’s natural beauty, as well as the vibrancy of King Street West and the Toronto marketplace, was the inspiration for this relaxing, luxurious property.

The 1 Hotel Toronto embraces sustainability by incorporating nature into its design and culinary scene and creating a meaningful connection with the community.

This type of hotel reuses existing structural and reclaimed materials from the area such as driftwood, limestone, and timber. Its balanced and comfortable design reflects the creativity of local artists and builders.

This hotel brand is committed to pure sustainability and conscious consumption; there are similar exclusive properties in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, South Beach, Miami, and on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, etc.

1 Hotel Toronto is more than a place to stay; it is a restful oasis where guests can be inspired, feel connected, enjoy personalized service, and recharge their body, mind, and spirit.

The luxurious 1 Hotel Toronto will introduce the city to new standards for an eco-conscious experience. With Toronto’s diverse population, it is not surprising that there is a culture of innovation in this metropolis.

Such groundbreaking projects change the shape of the hospitality industry; they exhibit a forward-looking approach and progressive thinking. Located in the heart of Toronto, this hotel is a gem of a find for leisure and business travelers.

Downtown Toronto is a major financial and tech hub for Canada; 38% of the country’s corporate headquarters are in this area. Toronto’s real gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to increase by 2.0% in 2020 – and again in the following year.

As we enter a new decade, businesses are thriving in Toronto. Amazon wanted to hire 600 workers. Netflix plans to open a production hub in the city. During 2018, Pinterest announced the opening in Toronto of its first Canadian office.

There has been consistent and impressive growth in this main urban market. Montreal is another leading force in the national level of growth.

Toronto hotels have a reputation for offering superb comfort and unparalleled service. This city is an exciting place with plenty to offer and something different and wonderful for every season.

Toronto is a year-round popular destination for all types of guests. Recently, Tourism Toronto launched a new campaign – Toronto Spotlight – to shine the spotlight on the city’s winter experiences. This exhilarating Canadian center offers amazing urban winter fun and attractions.

Toronto invites tourists to come, explore, and discover the adventures and all the “things-to-do” in this exhilarating spot; just enjoy the city. As well, a winter vacation in Toronto is a low-cost option for travelers. There are four “Toronto Spotlight” Weekends” happening in this vibrant city for winter 2020.

Toronto has added extra winter events in the past few years including the Toronto Light Festival in the Distillery District, Winter Light Exhibition at Ontario Place, and the Bloor-Yorkville Icefest. The city has also opened additional skating rinks.

The Toronto Spotlight initiative also highlights arts and culture, popular attractions and tours, and culinary expertise. During this current year and beyond, the cultural scene and information sector is expected to have significant output growth.

There has been considerable activity (new supply, conversions, etc.) in this hotel market in recent years. By 2021, the market-wide revenue per available room (RevPAR) should extend to over $200 for the first time.

Industry experts project the value per key for Toronto Downtown to rise by 10.8% in 2019; near double-digit value growth is also expected between 2020 and 2022. The value per key is projected to rise from $390,900 in 2019 to $544,300 in 2022. Driven by hotel performance, the Downtown should have one of the highest per-room values in the country.

During 2020, Toronto expects to attract a large number of visitors from within Canada (especially from its home province Ontario, as well as Quebec) and into the United States. Over 27 million travelers come to Toronto every year, and that number grows all the time.

The Ontario provincial government is improving transportation with its billion-dollar subway extensions and the addition of a new Ontario Line in the Greater Toronto Area.

Of course, these guests help the economy in spending and creating jobs; also, they spread word of their wonderful vacation and good memories of the city to others. That is why more guests – and more investors – choose Toronto hotels.
