Completed in 1954, the former Seaway Hotel at 2000 Lake Shore Boulevard West in Toronto was one of the first truly Modernist motor hotels in Canada. Its crisp, clean lines forewent the oftentimes kitschy themes of the era and earned its architects, Ants Elken and R.W. Becksted, a 1955 Massey Silver Medal. Elken and Becksted capitalized upon the southerly sunshine and views over Lake Ontario by stretching the building horizontally across the wide but shallow site. At the western end they placed a long and low guest wing with 111 rooms. A flamboyant T-shaped canopy of reinforced concrete defined the hotel entrance and enticed passing motorists on Lake Shore Boulevard. At the other end of the complex, a two-story block of contrasting green brick and glass enclosed a restaurant, lounge and banquet room. Connecting these two elements was the restaurant lobby, lined in green marble and leading to a discreet bar upstairs.
This seven piece set of vintage swizzle sticks from the hotel's bar/restaurant would make a great gift for any aficionado of roadside Canada or vintage travel.
