Toronto's maligned Hotel X gearing up for late summer opening

The hotel coming to Exhibition Place might actually be complete in time to catch the tail end of the CNE this year. Hotel X, from the upscale Library Collection of properties, has been in the works since 2009 and was originally slated to open in May 2015.

Construction started in 2013, but crews soon discovered the soil on site was contaminated. The opening date got pushed back to July 2016 and then it got moved again.
