Whitworth Suites

Celebrating the original features of the 19th century Victorian building, the Whitworth Suites embrace the high exposed brick that capture the neighbourhood light transition from sunrise to sunset. The conceptual kitchen area includes a sexy black granite honed finish with a table for dining or work.

The contemporary furnishings are designed to express a carefree, bold approach to match the personality of our visitors. Style and comfort are in abundance, so you’ll be nothing short of either. The extra-large windows make the room a light and airy hideaway.

Our Whitworth suites are a great place for photoshoots, too.
