Overview

Zen-inspired apartment-style hotel near Toronto’s waterfront, with a steakhouse and spa

The Lowdown

Set on Colborne Street between Toronto’s financial district and the waterfront, the Cosmopolitan has an entrance that is bathed in a neon glow. The 96 apartment-style rooms are sleek but not overly so, and they carry out the hotel’s “urban Zen” concept with Egyptian linens, dark wood furniture, bamboo arrangements, freestanding bathroom sinks and eucalyptus soap. Floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors and kitchenettes (never underestimate the convenience of a microwave or a stovetop when you’re far from home) ground the otherwise minimalist spaces with serious creature comforts. Choose from lavender, jasmine or vanilla incense fragrances at turn-down. The Asian-inspired design continues in the Shizen Spa, which has a glass-enclosed 1,500-square-foot Zen Solarium with a sparkling 12-person Jacuzzi and five treatment rooms. Rather indulge with your taste buds? Head to Wildfire Steakhouse and Wine Bar for dishes such as piri piri chicken breast with seasonal vegetables and roasted new potatoes.

In the Area

Catch a performance of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra or, in the early fall, a selection of standout movies during the Toronto International Film Festival, at the bell-shaped Roy Thomson Hall. Foodies should make their way to the 200-year-old St. Lawrence Market to pick up seasonal vegetables, Canadian bacon and homemade jam, or reserve a table at Le Petit Dejeuner, where Belgian fare is the focus (try the chantilly-topped waffles). Also worth trying is the indoor-outdoor Biff Bistro, which serves such French classics as beef bourguignon, steak frites and duck confit. For some culture, visit the Design Exchange’s permanent collection highlights, an eclectic mix of decorative arts, graphic design, furniture and housewares.

Lovely hotel and the view is amazing! Very nice breakfast with a wide range of options. The only part of breakfast that is not as nice is the current re- decorating so it is very plain and bleak. Very nice apartment, the sofa bed could at times be uncomfortable. However the rest of the apartment is absolutely amazing. Would give it 4 and a half if I could.

Wonderful experience

First off Hotel is in great location! Staff is phenomenal. Manager, front desk, housekeeping, restaurant staff...all FIRST CLASS. Made us feel like superstars!
We were able to find the hotel easily and the checkin was simple and quick. We ditched our rental car as you can walk everywhere from Colborne and Yonge.
Very vibrant area with lots of restaurants, cafés, etc. Old Toronto right close, Union Station, etc. If you want to shop you will not have to go far.
The Hotel lobby is very inviting, daily breakfast is excellent with nice cheeses, eggs, charcuterie, etc. Fresh baked croissants and fantastic service from staff.
We would definitely recommend and stay again when in TO.

We had a great room with a living area and kitchenette we also had a balcony overlooking the city. When we arrived the front desk employees were extremely friendly and helpful! The hotel also has a complimentary continental breakfast which was excellent! We would definitely stay here again!
