Aimed squarely at the youthful, professional traveler, this modern city hotel features glass walls galore, a muted color palette and Scandinavian-style blonde wood accents. Above the beds hang huge black and white photographs of tulips by Toronto-based artist James Lahey. Guests gather in front of the fireplace in the cozy library lounge to work, sip coffee from the free espresso machine or have meetings over cocktails, while at the restaurant – helmed by Canadian Top Chef contestant David Chrystian – diners share on-point family-style dishes that showcase Canada’s produce and artisanal ingredients.
In the Area
Take in a game at the nearby Rogers Centre (formerly known as the Skydome), a stadium with a retractable roof that hosts some of the country’s most watched matches, including those of home team the Toronto Blue Jays. Right next door is the famous CN Tower, which offers panoramic views over the city and various experiences ranging from hearty (noshing on Chicken Supreme with truffles at revolving restaurant 360) to heart-stopping (braving the outer ledge of the tower during the EdgeWalk.) Hit up Bloor Street West in Yorkville for the city’s best upscale ready-to-wear shopping at Holt Renfrew, Toronto’s answer to Bergdorf Goodman.
How to Get There
Boutique hotel in the heart of the entertainment district with unusual style touches. Restaurant and bar are small...perhaps too small.
Rooms are spacious and comfortable. TVs are large and modern.
Glass walls into the shower from the bedroom is an interesting touch.
Beds are very comfortable.
Surrounded by tower blocks, views are at a premium but the roof terrace provides a great view of the CN Tower.
Breakfasts are adequate - a definite area for improvement. The basic continental breakfast is limited. The cooked offerings seem an unnecessary costed extra.
The restaurant is a cross between Victorian cosines and 21st century industrial chic. Interesting.
Staff helpful and friendly.
Bar, restaurant, rooms and service are all top notch. Rooms in particular are modern with comfy, large beds, great shower with a large shower head and are spacious, location is great. Restaurant serves a fantastic burger; the Victor
My wife and I and my parents all stayed here and I must say the service was impressive and the staff were all uber friendly from the moment you walk in and leave.
The hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of Toronto, just a brief walk away from the iconic CN Tower and all major areas.
The door men, Concierge, breakfast staff and in particular the house cleaning staff were all just a pleasure to deal with.
