TORONTO – March 15, 2017: Hotel X Toronto President, Henry Kallan, announced today that American Standard and DXV, both part of the LIXIL Americas brand portfolio, have partnered with the hotel to provide luxury bathroom fixtures throughout the property, which is slated to open this summer on the Exhibition Place grounds in Toronto.  

According to Kallan, American Standard and DXV products were a natural fit for Hotel X Toronto. “Each design element of Hotel X Toronto has been carefully selected to create a unique atmosphere within Toronto’s first urban resort,” said Kallan. “We selected American Standard and DXV luxury bathroom fixtures line to provide a truly refined experience for our guests. We are also delighted that their hardware elegantly showcases the X in our name, reflecting our attention to detail and a whimsical quality Library Hotel Collection fans expect."

In addition to DXV’s Rem faucets with custom cross handles designed exclusively for Hotel X, LIXIL’s portfolio of luxury bath and kitchen products will be featured in a variety of hotel suite configurations, including the Seagram Collection freestanding tub with Contemporary Floor Mount Bathtub Faucet, and Contemporary Round Shower Heads. American Standard, an established brand known for its quality bath products, will furnish suite bathrooms with its Boulevard Collection one piece toilets and undercounter sinks, as well as communal washrooms with a selection of its commercial line fixtures. 

“At the onset of the project, we instinctively knew Hotel X, a high-profile hotel in a very desirable Toronto location would marry well with our luxury offering of bathroom products, DXV, to create a perfect union,” said Michelle Roberts, National Multi-Unit Segment Leader for LIXIL, who worked with the design team to create the custom Rem fixture handles and played a key role in product selection for Hotel X. “This is a one-in-a-million property that I feel will serve as a cornerstone to future boutique development, and we are thrilled to be a part of it!”

Hotel X Toronto will have 404 rooms including double queen bed and single king bed configurations, as well as suites with kitchenettes, all featuring faucets and fixtures from both LIXIL brands. In addition, Hotel X Toronto’s plans include over 26,000 square feet of meeting space, many with exceptional lake views; two cinemas; two swimming pools; seven bars, restaurants and lounges including the three-storey rooftop “Peregrine SkyBar,” destined to become a Toronto landmark due to its unparalleled views of the city skyline and lake; and TEN X Toronto, a 90,000 square-foot athletic facility with multiple indoor tennis and squash courts, yoga, cycling and Pilates studios and state-of-the-art Technogym equipment. 

Hotel X Toronto will open in summer of 2017.
