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
I stayed in a Signature King room. The desk/workspace is very large; the bed is very comfortable; the bathroom is a good size. There is plenty of cupboard space.
Breakfast was included in my room rate, and it was excellent, with very good service.
One of the best features of the hotel is that if you book your stay directly on their website, then you can check-out as late as you would like. A huge convenience!
That being said, I found the lighting in the room to be inadequate -- it was just too dark, even with all the lights on.
There was no view from my window, and there is a large construction site right across the street, with the expected noise during the day.
The room was clean, but I think the hallways and common areas need to be vacuumed better.
Overall, a good stay at a great location,
Fantastic bathroom! After a hard day's work you want a soaking tub like this hotel has and all the luxurious feeling that comes with the amenities they provide.
The different seating areas near the lobby allow you to catch up in small groups and relative privacy.
The breakfast spread is delectable. The in room dining quality was high. The water jars/pitchers on the floor kept me well hydrated. Minutes walk from all kinds of shops, restaurants and a few entertainment options.
My husband and I have stayed at two of the Le Germain Hotels in Quebec CIty and Charlevoix, so when we needed to stay in Toronto, we decided to try them out there. We were going to the theatre and the location was fabulous! The design of these hotels are exceptional and the staff are courteous, friendly and very helpful. The only thing that I might change is the lighting in the rooms. While we didn't mind it, I can see that some people may find it too dark. I can't wait to return!
Awesome hotel to attend Raptors / Leafs Game !! Convenient Clean modern ! 10/10 Can’t wait to go back ! Bar service & food top notch Treated like royalty every time I visit Le Germain highly recommend staying here 👍👍
First the location is very central and enables easy access to the sights Toronto has to offer. The staff were friendly and our room was modern in a delightful way. The restaurant in the evening was fine whilst the breakfast selection was OK, but coming from the UK we did find all Canadian hotels leave a little to be desired on the breakfast front. That said we’d happily use this hotel as our base if we ever visit Toronto again. Strangely one of the highlights of this city for us was the incredible underground world of linked shopping centres that means when its 30 degrees below outside all are toastie inside.
