We’re located in downtown Toronto on King Street West
Our neighbourhood features some of Toronto’s best bars, restaurants, boutique hotels and shopping amongst century houses and modern condos.
StartWell’s campus is at the perfect location for meetings, offsites, conferences, livestreams and everything else – we are minutes away from the financial core and Union Station, close to the Exhibition GO station and just off Lakeshore Boulevard + the Gardiner Expressway.
Choose the best payment option for your company
Our standard way of booking at StartWell – simply pay for each booking using a corporate credit card when making it through our web portal or mobile apps.
You can centralise billing with one corporate credit card on file for your company, and optionally have each team member be able to add their own billing method – allocating spend to different budgets.
We make it easier to manage multiple people on a team placing bookings through the year with prepaid credits on our member portal and apps.
Allocate a specific budget for meetings and then save up to 30% by paying for credits in advance – your team will then be able to draw down those credits without the need for using credit cards when placing bookings on demand.
This is an extremely flexible way to enable your team to book whatever whenever – whilst controlling spending limits and reducing procurement overhead.

Depending on the size of suite you book, the size and number of screens available may be different but we always ensure that you can arrive, plug in your laptop or connect wirelessly via Airplay to our available screens and that USB powered conference cameras are available to easily connect to video conferencing sessions and show everyone in the room on camera.
