Each room in this Markham hotel was designed for openness and flow
With the base building already constructed, mechanical, electrical and plumbing of suites already laid, the design team had free rein to propose a fresh update to the room standards of the Marriott Markham.

As a hotel primarily serving guests travelling on business, most of the rooms are king sized rooms. However, each suite demanded custom measurements, so the design team simplified the millwork to a modular kit that could be tailored to each layout.
One design element they eschewed almost completely? Drawers! Instead, the desk in each room extends as a long counter, where guests can store suitcases, in an open shelving system, instead of a typical closet with doors. With this revamp of so many familiar elements, the balance of the room is shifted to have a more continuous flow. Even the artwork is stitched into the design, and tailored within the millwork.
