The hallways of the 97-room hotel, for instance, are filled with art created by local and international artists, providing an art gallery vibe. Many of the guestrooms meanwhile include balconies designed to provide views of the surrounding city.

“Bringing Tapestry Collection by Hilton to the Canadian market is an exciting accomplishment for the brand, and it is only fitting that we would make our mark in a city rich in local culture,” said Jenna Hackett, global head, Tapestry Collection by Hilton.

In addition to stylish accommodations, the new hotel features state-of-the-art meeting and event spaces designed to accommodate up to 120 guests.

The property also includes in-house dining at Gahan House, which features handcrafted ales and high-quality pub favorites. For a more interactive culinary experience, wine and beer tastings and food-pairing workshops are available onsite at Expérience by ANBL.

Tapestry Collection has had a successful few years. In 2018, it added 14 hotels to its collection, among them its first New York City property, The Bernic Hotel, and its first location in the Chicago area with The Rose Hotel Chicago O’Hare.

As it embarked on 2019, Tapestry had 45 properties in the pipeline including its first West Coast offerings.

With its sights now set on the growing Canadian tourism market, Tapestry is planning for continued expansion in the country. The brand already has two additional Canadian hotels in the pipeline.

To coordinate the massive effort, Hilton is teaming with 10 associations that represent more than one million healthcare workers to provide access to the program, including the American Hospital Association, American Nurses Association and more.

“During this crisis, we have seen so many examples of medical professionals working in the most challenging circumstances, sacrificing their own needs for the greater good,” Hilton CEO Christopher J. Nassetta said in a statement. “They truly are heroes. We are honored to extend our Hilton hospitality to them during this difficult time.”

American College of Emergency Physicians president William Jaquis, MD, FACEP, said the room donation would be welcomed relief for the thousands of medical staff enduring long hours under challenging circumstances.

A variety of Hilton brands are participating, including Hampton by Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn, DoubleTree by Hilton and others. Nassetta said hotel owners around the country have been “eager to support their communities and be part of the solution.”

Earlier this month, the Las Vegas Sands also lent a helping hand by donating two million medical masks and 20,000 protective suits to healthcare professionals, first responders and nonprofit organizations in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
