The Kimpton Saint George Hotel

Mixed metal plumbing fixtures and accessories bring touch of Boho Chic to Toronto’s first Kimpton boutique hotel.

The Challenge

Owner/Developer InnVest REIT partnered with Kimpton Hotels to take an existing Holiday Inn nearly down to its studs and transform it into Toronto’s first Kimpton boutique hotel, the Kimpton Saint George. The 14-story hotel had to fit seamlessly into its surrounding Bohemian “The Annex” neighborhood.

“We’re thrilled to… open the first boutique hotel that speaks to the city’s dynamic cultural scene.”

- Mike DeFrino, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants’ CEO

The Solution

Award-winning Toronto-based interior design firm Mason Studio worked closely with the Kimpton team, Symmons® Design Studio™, and their Symmons Design Consultant. Members of Mason Studio flew to Chicago to tour the new Kimpton Gray Hotel and were inspired by its choice of Symmons Brushed Bronze fixtures. This led Mason Studio to specify the following Brushed Bronze products paired with other metal finishes:

Plumbing Fixtures in Brushed Bronze:

  • Dia® Two Handle Widespread Lavatory Faucet for guest rooms. The same faucet in Satin Nickel was specified for the public washrooms.
  • Dia Shower System with custom shower head and lever handle
  • Dia Hand Shower System with custom shower wand, slide bar, and lever handle
  • Sereno® Wall-Mounted Lavatory Faucet with lever handles
  • Dia Tub/Hand Shower System with custom shower wand and lever handle
  • Dia Tub/Shower System with custom shower head and shower arm with lever handle
  • Dia Single Handle Bar Sink Faucet

Bath Accessories in Matte Black:

  • Dia Single Robe Hook
  • Identity 24" Towel Bar
  • Single Post Toilet Paper Holder
  • Dia Towel Rings
Bath Accessories in Brushed Bronze:
  • Dia 24" Towel Bar
  • Custom Shower Basket Soap Dish
  • Custom Corner Soap Dish
  • Single Post Toilet Paper Holder

The Outcome

The Kimpton Saint George opened in June 2018 and offers 188 guest rooms, including 20 suites and 1 presidential suite. This four-star hotel has been featured in a number of publications including Toronto LifeHotelier Magazine, and Boutique Design. The Kimpton Saint George delivers guests a curated experience that is consistent with the Kimpton brand, from its choice of mixing metals in its guest bathroom fixtures and accessories to showcasing 700+ art pieces from local artists.
