Markham is getting a sprawling new hotel

This month, Markham is getting a Marriott hotel that will be the most opulent of its kind in York Region. 

Slated to open in Markham's Remington Development-funded downtown community, the new Toronto Marriott Markham takes the hotel's brand to new heights with an elegant, modern design.

Features of the hotel include a park area around the hotel, and close proximity to places like York's new university campus, Main Street Unionville and the Pan Am Centre, plus art installations linked to Markham's pedestrian gallery project.

Inspired by a Chinese constellation, the light will illuminate an area that is foreseen to become the hotel's hub, which will include a bar, restaurant, and a bourbon program.
