FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


June 20, 2012 (Toronto, ON)—The Hazelton Hotel, Toronto's ultimate luxury property, announces its newest amenity: the art concierge.

The Hazelton, located in Toronto's prestigious Yorkville neighborhood, is the city's top art-centric hotel, boasting an extensive on-site contemporary art collection.

The art concierge will serve as an educational resource for guests and the general public regarding the surrounding art community; the Bloor-Yorkville neighborhood alone is home to nearly 40 art dealers and galleries. The art concierge will also act as a go-to source for the hotel's contemporary Canadian art collection. Visitors to www.thehazeltonhotel.com can interact with the art concierge via a "Live Chat" function.

"With the increased recognition of Toronto as one of North America's leading fine art centers, we felt it critical to provide community leadership with the creation of a new and unique staff position, the art concierge," said David Mounteer, general manager of The Hazelton Hotel. "With a significant in-house contemporary collection, we needed to have the necessary expertise to answer guests' questions regarding our collection, as well as the many galleries and museums in our community."

Sam Mogelonsky, the art concierge for The Hazelton Hotel, is a Toronto-based artist. She holds a BFAH from Queen's University, Kingston, ON, and an MFA from Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design, London, UK. Her professional experience includes working with the White Cube Gallery, The Whitechapel Gallery, The Barbican Art Centre and the Pangolin London Gallery in London, UK.

The Hazelton Hotel's art concierge can be reached by email at artconcierge@thehazeltonhotel.com, or via "Live Chat" at www.thehazeltonhotel.com
