After putting the finishing touches on an extensive renovation, Sheraton Gateway is ready to welcome travellers to their airy and bright new look. Acting as the only directly-connected hotel for the busy Toronto airport hub, the $30-million makeover will make an impact on those travelling in and out of Pearson.
The ultra-convenient hotel located in Terminal 3 boasts spacious guest rooms, including a Club Level King Lounge situated on the top floors. We were recently invited to tour the property and get a taste of travel without the airport rush.
YOUR VACATION STARTS NOW
Venturing out after not travelling, airport Sheraton Gateway delivers on the dream of fuss-free airport commutes. If you’ve flown out of Pearson, you know it can be absolute chaos during busy travel times. Omitting any steps to this parade of panic is a no-brainer! HWY 401 traffic has now been replaced by a swift monorail trip. From check-in to check-out, it’s a seamless operation tuned to the needs of travellers.
Comfortable and convenient, check out of your busy routine in favour of a streamlined self-care approach. No longer in a panic over traffic or missed alarms, instead, your vacation begins when you arrive. After a hiatus of not hitting the skies, any steps you can take to limit anxiety are a win for me.
GREAT EATS + DRINKS AWAIT AT THE GATEWAY
A carefully curated food program by Executive Chef Pravin Bagali boasts morning to night eats and treats in the lobby bar, &More Lounge and of course classic in-room dining service. Almost anticipating your every whim, the food program is curated for a healthy but still hearty appetite. Grab and go express or kick back in the lobby bar, the choice is yours.
For those with club lounge access, your room key opens to a full-service bar, hors d’oeuvres and a bright galley space intended for a quiet meal or meeting. While you may expect some nominal nibbles, here the bustling bar expands to a full spread smorgasbord. Our late afternoon eats included Chef Bagali’s daily creations, including freshly made soup, grab and go salads and crudites, and hot foods like duck spiedini.
For sit down dinners, cocktails and catching the game, head to &More, in the lobby. Complete with a dedicated Gin & Tonic menu where guests are invited to customize their aromatic cocktails. Wines of the world, handcrafted cocktails and beers on tap offer options for everyone. The food menu is deep, featuring salads, poke bowls, pizzas and pasta.
AMENITIES, ACCESS AND THOUGHTFUL EXTRAS
Particularly for families and business travellers, the flowing access of the dynamic lounge makes Sheraton Gateway perfect for gathering. Thoughtful private meeting areas dot the open lobby, including tidy soundproof wired private booths intended for privacy. The space feels like a living room, you’re truly invited to linger and unwind in these comfy couches.
LUXURIOUS SLEEP AND A RUNWAY AWAIT
Starting off any holiday well-rested is the best way to start your jet-setting holiday. Beautifully appointed suites afford runway views and generous dining areas. Comfortable beds beckon, while the grasscloth walls and midcentury modern furnishings are both stylish and relaxed, just like home. Staying on the top floors also garners access to the Club Lounge, with all-day snacks and (non-alcoholic) drinks, breakfast and happy hour appetizers. It’s definitely worth the upgrade!
An on-site gym is a cure for restless travel legs. A pristine pool feels almost private. And don’t forget the puppers. This property is dog friendly too.
Rooms vary in price and amenities. Members and special rates should book directly through Marriott to secure the best rate.
