New Castle Hotels and Resorts, recently named one of Eastern Canada’s Top 20 companies hospitality and retail, today announced that it has assumed management of the 395-room Westin Prince Toronto in West Toronto, Ontario. The AAA 4-Diamond rated hotel joins New Castle’s prestigious portfolio of Westin hotels including the Westin Nova Scotian, the brand’s first franchise, The Westin Portland Harborview in Portland Maine, and the Westin Jekyll Island.
“This is a legacy Westin property with 40 years of 4-Diamond status. We look forward to guiding it into the future with a sharp focus on Westin’s strategically developed, highly recognizable branding and New Castle’s well-regarded culture of mutual respect,” said Gerry Chase, president and COO of New Castle.
The Westin Prince Toronto caters to an international audience with authentic Japanese, Chinese and Persian restaurants, as well as a three-meal dining room serving locally-sourced regional favorites, Seasons at the Prince. With 30,000 square feet of meeting space, the Westin Prince can accommodate groups as large as 700 in both indoor and outdoor venues. The hotel features an outdoor heated pool, running trails, tennis courts and a fitness center with whirlpool.
Sitting on 15 acres of rolling parkland, with an adjacent golf course, The Westin Prince is just minutes from downtown Toronto and within five miles of more than two dozen major corporations including Kraft, Sunoco, IBM, McDonald’s and SAP. The Toronto Zoo is a 15-minute drive.
“The Westin Prince is notable as an urban oasis, giving Toronto’s business and leisure visitors the best opportunities to engage in and escape from this dynamic city,” added Chase. “We welcome this well-known Toronto landmark to our growing portfolio of distinctive North American hotels.”
New Castle owns and/or operates six other hotels in Atlantic Canada and will open a dual-brand project in Dartmouth next spring.
