Located in ByWard Market, the hotel features 200 guestrooms, six studio rooms totaling 4,500 square feet of function space, a ground-floor restaurant and bar, and a rooftop lounge.

Each floor of the 16-storey hotel reflects the history of a Canadian province or territory. Guests are welcomed into a lounge environment outfitted with custom-designed low sectional seating. Overhead, Toronto-based furniture makers Hollis + Morris created a lighting installation made of mixed Canadian-wood species.

Helmed by executive chef Stephen La Salle (formerly of The Albion Rooms), the hotel’s food and beverage program features multiple dining venues. The hotel’s signature restaurant, feast + revel, features New Canadian cuisine emphasizing local, organic, hormone-free and sustainable products.

Rounding out the food and beverage component are an all-day coffee bar with grab-and-go bites and locally sourced Equator coffee; and Copper Spirits & Sights, the sixteenth-floor rooftop bar and lounge offering sharing plates.
