Toronto, ON (May 17, 2018)Atlific Hotels is proud to announce the recently completed renovations of Hilton Garden Inn Toronto Airport West/Mississauga. Designed by Robert J. Chaban & Associates, the hotel’s public spaces and guestrooms have been updated in a style that is inspired by nature and elevates the property’s welcoming and contemporary environment. 

“We are delighted with the hotel’s new look and are confident that guests will be captivated with its laid-back sophistication,” said Philippe Gadbois, Senior Vice-President Operations, Atlific Hotels. “In addition to revitalizing the property’s atmosphere, the completed renovations include thoughtful touches that will improve the overall guest experience and allow us to better serve our clientele,” he continued.

Renovations to public and private spaces comprise new furnishings and carpet, enhanced lighting elements, refreshed paint and garden-inspired artwork that has brightened the lobby and added texture to meeting spaces. Upon arrival, the lobby welcomes guests with alluring, geometric floor-to-ceiling curtains. The dimensional fabric shines thanks to unique lighting fixtures that hang in the middle of the entrance. 

Business travellers desiring a private space can now enjoy the new Garden Room, an enclosed boardroom with a serene ambience. With doors to facilitate privacy, new furnishings and carpeting, window treatments and a TV, this space is also ideal for professionals who wish to host meetings or conduct presentations.   

Inside guestrooms rich colours and natural materials inspire warmth and offer a calm respite from the outside world. Welcoming and comfortable beds have been backed with upholstered headboards, accent lighting and sleek, white nightstands. Rustic, wooden planks add texture to the headboards, bringing a touch of nature to the contemporary space. The wood also adds dimension to the otherwise modern atmosphere, with white, grey and silver tones playing an integral role in the room. Fresh, white, floating bedside nightstands perfectly add polish along with crisp white bedding and blinds to match. Subtle pops of red appear throughout eclectic art atop the headboard, desk and red accent lounge chair, adding a vibrant touch to the clean and inviting environment. A modern and multifunctional desk serves as a workspace with ample storage, making this space perfect for both business and leisure travellers alike. 

Set in the heart of the Mississauga Business District, the hotel is a nine-minute drive to Toronto Pearson International Airport and provides easy access to popular attractions such as Square One Shopping Center, Hershey Center and Living Arts Centre, where plays, concerts and classical events are regularly held.
