Hotel Ensemble brings together the local community and travelers beyond Toronto, renewing old ideas of a hotel into a place that is socially energized. It features a restaurant and lounge, café, and a community library with direct access to the suite rooms via “the Bridge”. As an active structure in the city, the hotel houses amenities that form the notion of a civic monument and brings together the aspirations of a collection of diverse people. During a time of digital culture, the hotel aims to reconnect people through the simplicity of cuisine, knowledge, and communication, inclusively rudimentary to human civilization since the beginning of time. The hotel not only becomes a place to stay, but a place to build upon the lives of one another.
