The Hazelton Hotel is getting a makeover.

According to the Yorkville establishment, the forthcoming renovation project will include a transformed guest experience, along with a new approach to food and beverage at chef Mark McEwan’s signature ONE Restaurant.

Both the hotel and restaurant will remain open during the renovation, which is set to be completed by early summer 2020.

Since it opened its doors in 2008, The Hazelton has become emblematic of world-class luxury within the city.

“The Hazelton was born with the vision of bringing international luxury to Toronto. This exciting next step reasserts our passion for continually elevating the standards of luxury within our city, as well as within the wider global hospitality industry,” said Hani Roustom, managing director of The Hazelton Hotel.

The hotel opened its doors back in 2008, and the original design firm Yabu Pushelberg will be bringing the hotel’s transformation to life.

The renovation will include a new lobby, as well as redesigned guest rooms and suites.

New menus by McEwan and chef Darby Piquette will be offered and will feature diverse yet approachable fare.

“ONE restaurant has become known as a Yorkville hotspot and I am excited for the opportunity to work with Yabu Pushelberg again to create a stylish setting that complements ONE’s contemporary menus,” said McEwan.

The hotel said the renovation will include a refined spa space and gym, as well as a new couples’ massage room.

More details will be released regarding the renovation in early 2020.
