Hilton Suites Toronto/Markham Conference Centre
Modern business hotels have to offer their guests more than a comfortable bed for the evening in order to be successful.
The four diamond Hilton Suites Toronto/Markham Conference Centre & Spa is one such venue that provides its guests with much more than a bed, dishing out spectacular hospitality at its top-class event facilities for corporate and leisure visitors from both the Toronto area and international community.
“The hotel has built up a superior reputation and has been recognized by its guests for its extraordinary service and impressive accommodation,” says Patrick Regina, General Manager, Hilton Suites Toronto. “We consider ourselves to be more than a hotel, but rather a home away from home for our guests.
“This property acts as a relaxing getaway with amenities such as our luxurious spa that allows the local residents and our in-house guests to escape and relax.
The hotel also features fabulous restaurants with an award-winning culinary team that nourish you in new and exciting ways by offering diners options from fine dining to casual lounge fare to in-room dining for our hotel guests.”
Alongside the hotel’s outstanding dining facilities and impressive spa is Club Markham—a full-service, 30,000 square foot state-of-the-art fitness & wellness facility.
To top off its wide ranging offering is the hotel’s fantastic event, meeting and conference facilities. With more than 45,000 square feet of flexible function space, the property has become an events mecca for the York Region and the Greater Toronto Area.
A world class conference centre
The hotel opened its doors as the Markham Suites Hotel in February 1989, later becoming the Embassy Suites, before realigning itself as the Hilton Suites Toronto/Markham Conference Centre & Spa—a name it has now had for nine years.
Despite its early name changes, the ownership and the vision to provide its guests with a superior product have “remained the same”, Regina remarks.
“It has always had one owner and his commitment to making sure we bring a world class product to market stands to his testament,” he adds.
The hotel location on the outskirts of Toronto has worked in the property’s favour, as businesses look for a venue with easy access to all major highways, which is not distracted by the hustle and bustle of a busy city centre.
“We’re conveniently located in Markham, just 25 minutes from downtown Toronto and Pearson International Airport which makes it a very attractive proposition for businesses looking to hold exciting high-powered conferences that organizers have spent months preparing for,” comments Regina.
“Once you bring your conference or meeting to our property, the delegate’s focus remains strictly on your event as the guests and the attendees are not inclined to disperse as they would be by the activities that take place in and around a downtown property.”
Proficient and professional
Regina has been with the property for three-and-a-half years.
Starting his career in hospitality more than 25 years ago at a Hilton property nearby Pearson International Airport, Regina moved on to work for several other big name hotel chains before finding himself back with the Hilton brand and in charge of one of Ontario’s leading business hotels.
“It was fantastic to be able to go full circle and come back to Hilton with this property,” states Regina. “After working for various other brands, I am proud of the culture and sense of belonging that is felt when working within the Hilton Family of Hotels.”
With a great deal of hospitality experience behind him, Regina has brought to the hotel a high level of passion and professionalism.
“Our aim is to transform our guest’s experiences by anticipating their needs and delighting them with overwhelming service”—the perfect manager for a property with a broad business offering.
The hotel’s spacious two-room suites are not only luxuriously furnished, but allow conference visitors staying at the property the chance to get some much needed work done in their own rooms in between conference presentations. Complimentary wireless Internet is available throughout the lobby and restaurants, in-room wired high-speed Internet is also available complimentary to guests, while in- room wireless access and remote printing services are available for a nominal fee.
For those guests staying a little longer, the hotel offers suites with kitchenettes and all rooms come with an alarm clock radio with an MP3 connection, a coffee maker with complimentary coffee and two 32-inch flat-panel televisions.
