The 209-room hotel will be located just blocks from the Trump International Hotel and will feature the liberal philosophy that will be ingrained into every aspect of the guest starting from the name.
The hotel’s name is based on a shopping mall in Montreal that was a focal point for Lo’s father Ka Shui lo when he moved to China for the Cultural Revolution. Ka Shui the creator and executive chairman of Hong Kong based Langham Hospitality Group Ltd has used their experience in the tourism industry to expand the Eaton Workshop brand.

The hotel will be conducting progressive lectures, fireside chats, art installations and exhibitions. There will be a residency program for investigative reporters and an anti-Trump video installation in the lobby.
The revenue generated from the new facility will be used in supporting the Eaton Workshop brand’s creative projects.
