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
Delightful small venue tucked away and worth the stay.
Sooo glad we booked at this lovely hotel, not only for it's unique modern charm, but also because it's centrally located and easy to walk virtually anywhere in the city or to catch the local transit. Benefits also include quieter hallways and no waiting for elevators, as is typical in much larger hotels where lines are frequent and service not always prompt.
Le Germain serves a delicious breakfast which surpasses any I've seen labeled "Continental." Cappuccino or latte included, sumptuous pastries and croissants or bagels, hard boiled eggs, home-made granola... just to mention a few delightful offerings. Or order from a menu-- french toast, omlettes... plenty to choose from.
This is not a place for a magnificent view, as the adjacent buildings are close... but who spends time staring out the window while in Toronto? Helpful concierge and attentive staff met our every need.
Comfortable big bathrobes and a deep soaking tub make relaxing after a busy day of sightseeing worth coming back to Le Germain. Want to stay in? Enjoy a delicious dinner in the restaurant or a night cap in the cozy bar. Room service is fast, too.
There are two Le Germain hotels in Toronto. Both of the are located in downtown. This one is in the entertainment district and 10 minutes walk to the closest subway station. The room is modern and the breakfast is tasty. The bar is small but you can still enjoy your drinks there. All staff are very friendly and always come with a smile. They are considerate, kind, and always willing to assist whenever you have a need.
There is a construction of residence right opposite to the hotel so you should expect some noise and traffic.
The staff is incredible & the service is great !!
It’s always a pleasure staying at the Le Germain .
The breakfast and service is excellent .
I truly enjoy staying there every time I am in Toronto .
Thank you to the entire team.
Hotel located on a quiet street, just a short block from the theatres on King St W in Toronto.
From the moment of reception (efficient and quick check in) to departure (check out at your leisure), we enjoyed professional and friendly service from every staff interaction. Room was spacious, spotless, and serene.
Enjoyed an included buffet breakfast.
This is a luxury hotel where attention to detail with decor and service are of a very high standard. It is centrally located and within walking distance to major attractions, the local convention centre and King Street financial hub. I can see myself using such an establishment on business trips and meetings where time is of the essence, where creature comforts do matter and where a room view is of no concern.
On this occasion where we were travelling as a couple on vacation, the disappointing part was the 4th Floor room view of a run down back alleyway despite a request for a room with some views. The hotel is boxed in by tall buildings. However, there was a nice view from the 11th top floor hotel gym. So, minus two stars in my review given a 3-night stay in that context !!! Perhaps there is a lesson here to purpose match the type of guest to the room to achieve the best possible experience for all.
I would consider returning for a work trip but would not recommend for couples given the abundance of hotel choice in Toronto to get everything you are after. Le Germain Hotel on Mercer St - An ‘almost’ well done !
