Radisson Hotel Group today revealed the owners of Radisson Admiral Hotel Toronto-Harbourfront have announced their intent to convert the hotel into a Radisson Blu, making this the company's first upper upscale hotel introduction in Canada. The owners are planning to update the hotel's public spaces, guest rooms, food and beverage offerings and its meeting space to bring its unique Radisson Blu brand to life. The hotel's new look will feature a stylish and contemporary design, while maintaining its personalized service catering to the needs of each guest. The hotel is anticipated to open as a Radisson Blu in June 2019.

"We are thrilled to potentially bring Radisson Blu to Canada, especially in the great city of Toronto," said Ken Greene, president, Americas, Radisson Hotel Group. "The owners and staff of this hotel have gone above and beyond to provide an incredible experience for guests while under the Radisson flag.

The 157 guest rooms and suites will boast a new look and feel. Guests can continue to enjoy popular amenities at the hotel such as the restaurant and lounge, café, fitness center and underground parking. The seasonal lakeview pool patio is the perfect place for guests to relax and unwind while admiring the breathtaking views of the city, including the iconic CN Tower, Lake Ontario and the inner harbor. For those planning a meeting or special event, the refreshed meeting space will offer 11,000 square feet of customizable space that can accommodate up to 400 people.

The fantastic location of this hotel caters to both business and leisure travelers with the property near Rogers Stadium, the Metro Toronto Convention Center and the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. Guests can stroll along the beautiful waterfront, take a ferry ride to explore the Toronto Islands or check out Downtown Toronto's top-notch restaurants, museums and nightlife.
