Attaching a picture of an entry-level room and bathroom below. I'm exceptionally underwhelmed by this redesign - it's been closed for years, already looks dated and the room doesn't even have a proper desk. Going off of these images alone, I'd be pretty annoyed shelling out the near 600 CAD they're demanding per night.

A pity, especially seeing that they've clearly put effort towards the public spaces [see restaurant image at the bottom].

Anyone know if all room types will have carpets or if it will be STR Toronto style where suites have hardwood floors? Its been a decade since the Shangri-la Toronto opened with its beautiful flooring yet decent hotels in this city are still renoing with carpet lol

Also, that bathroom looks ridiculous to me lol

A hotel shouldn't call itself luxury if its bathroom doesn't have a separated deep soaking tub from the shower.

For anyone curious, even the suites have this navy carpet

It seems like they just removed the tubs from rooms and decided to go with only walk-in showers. I think that's fine but it just seems like they did such a bad job executing this. Hard to make a definitive judgment from the photos but I won't even bother finding out at this point.

This is the only Park Hyatt in Canada. It's really unfortunate Hyatt considers this to be enough to hold onto the flag.

I would have said Asian Hyatt Place.

They got rid of the base room shower/tub combo for just a shower at 600 CAD. PH NY beancounters in charge must be joking.

@realricky on Instagram has a story with a walkthrough of a one-bedroom suite. It's a little bit nicer than the photos posted above (there's a separate bath), but still not awfully impressive.

It looks just okay. Keeping a desk is a rarity these days. Will give them credit there.

Requirements of travelers do differ quite a lot . I applaud them for eliminating the bathtub. I basically require a large walk-in shower. Difficult for a hotel to please all travelers

I think we can all agree the new showers are an improvement over this.

Apparently it's the TSU suite. Worth 25k/night + TSU?

I certainly prefer the walk-in shower, but luxury really should have both.
