TOTO arrives at The Connaught Hotel, September 2009
TOTO Europe is pleased to announce a new relationship with one of London’s most iconic establishments, The Connaught Hotel. In September 2009, the famed Mayfair landmark will open its highly anticipated, newly restored west wing to reveal 37 of TOTO’s Neorest LE Washlets in its suites and rooms, including the luxurious Penthouse Apartment suite. The Connaught Hotel will become the first hotel in Europe to offer TOTO’s renowned luxury products.
After setting up its European base in Dusseldorf in 2008, TOTO officially launched into the European market in March 2009. Teaming up with The Connaught Hotel, one of the UK’s most prestigious hotels, marks a successful step into the London market for the Japanese brand.

The TOTO Neorest Series/LE Washlet-integrated toilet has been developed specifically for the European market. Incorporating TOTO’s unique ‘Clean Technology’ ethos, the Neorest LE presents a whole new way to refresh and clean, by pioneering the use of technology and adhering to the highest standards of product design. Neorest features include a sensor-operated lid, automatic Tornado Flush, a temperature-controlled seat, an automatic deodoriser, CeFiONtect glazing, plus an elegant and ergonomic remote control to offer advanced functionality.
The restoration of The Connaught Hotel has drawn international attention due to its commitment to maintaining and respecting the Mayfair landmark’s core essence, while enhancing its authentic and contemporary residential appeal. This new relationship with TOTO will merge the period beauty of the hotel’s aesthetics with the most up-to-date bathroom technology available.
