As for the other rooms, you can expect nothing less than exquisite design. Every room features 12-ft ceilings and a minimalist decor -- you'll notice sparse walls with perhaps one or two modern works of art. Peter attributes this design decision to keeping a keen eye on the furniture featured in the suites. "Since we spent so much time on the design of the hotel, we wanted it to be the main focus," Peter says. "You'll notice that instead of large pieces of artwork, we've installed gorgeous light fixtures and designer furniture sourced from throughout the world."
Peter pointed out incredible pieces of the hotel that had made their way to Canada, from cowskin rugs found at a flea market in Brazil to the stone floor in the hotel lobby that was brought in from Italy. It seems that although materials came from around the world, they still merged together to create a hotel whose design reflects Canada's natural landscape -- reclaimed wood furniture, tranquil colour palettes, stone feature walls and an overall sense of spaciousness.
Suites feature a living and dining area as well as a sleeping space (the suite I stayed in had an open concept design and the sleeping area was closed off by floor-to-ceiling sheers).
