Grand dame with a modish upgrade. Gleaming wood-paneled walls and marble floors mix with sculptural botanicals and graphic carpets with cherry blossom motifs in the common spaces. Rooms lack the design swagger of some of the city’s newer properties but feel infinitely inviting thanks to feather duvets and pale, earthy color schemes.
Bed & Bath
Over-sized windows line the 336 spacious, understated rooms and provide 24-hour vistas of the city outside. The upper floors frame the iconic CN Tower. Lower floors get close-ups of celebrity architect Daniel Libeskind’s jewel-box addition to the Royal Ontario Museum. On other sides, the rooms look onto the Yorkville neighborhood’s handsome Victorian buildings. Marble bathrooms have Le Labo amenities.
The centerpiece of the hotel is the 10,000-square-foot, 17-room Stillwater Spa with steam rooms, saunas and whirlpools, a manicure bar and pedicure thrones and treatments focused on aquatherapy, from riverstone to Swedish rainshower massages to Russian banya themed treatments. Equally relaxing? Taking in the skyline views from the clubby burnished-wood bar on the 18th floor or savoring a long meal of seasonal seafood-centric fare at Annona.
In the Area
Once a hotbed of bohemian culture attracting artists and hippies, today Yorkville is one of North America’s most swish shopping districts. Break the bank or window shop at the likes of Prada, Gucci, Coach and Chanel, but don’t miss the privately owned boutiques, galleries and restaurants in turn-of-the-century Victorian houses along Hazelton Avenue and Scollard Street. For an only-in-Canada shopping experience, visit Holt Renfrew, a posh department store on Bloor Street. Also on Bloor, the Royal Ontario Museum is especially famous for its striking glass exterior. Look for contemporary Canadian art at the Mira Godard Gallery; experience shoe envy at the Bata Shoe Museum; and behold the stunning ceramics at the Gardiner Museum. Local eateries include the cozy and unpretentious Carens Wine & Cheese Bar on Cumberland and the Oxley, a lively pub that serves real British fare.
How to Get There
This is an elegant, older style hotel in a great location within easy walk of a heap of restaurants in Yorkville Village and a couple of other attractions like Royal Ontario Museum, Queens Park, Parliament, etc. Public transport is easily accessible with Museum Station and Bay Station of the Metro subway nearby.
Our room was well appointed, comfortable bed, espresso coffee machine, iron/board, good bathroom, etc.and best of all an openable window: not big but gave us fresh air at night.
Best concierge I have met in ages: knowledgeable and very helpful and friendly.
We had breakfast daily: good selection, great staff who went out of their way to get to know you and what you liked from day to day. Prices in $22-$28 range.
Great location hotel, with very comfortable rooms, great breakfast. Up town shopping destination. Bloor street is the Toronto main design shopping street. Great bar on the top floor of hotel. Help full stuff, great food in the hotel restaurant.
This property is in a perfect location. Near the best shopping, museums and parks.
The rooms were spacious and the entire hotel was very clean. Hotel staff was impeccable and attentive.
Don't forget to go to the rooftop bar at night, have a cocktail, and take pictures of the skyline.
