Set in a modern glass and steel building in downtown Toronto, this 92-room stay offers a friendly boutique vibe with all the conveniences of a big hotel. Admire the hyper-colorful Dale Chiluhy glass sculpture hanging in the lobby before heading to a generously sized guest room complete with soaking tub, separate dressing room and high-tech touches like smart lighting systems that adjust both the illumination and the drapes. Stay active at the fitness center or chill out in the salon, which offers manicures and massages.
In the Area
Start with a downtown art fix at the Art Gallery of Ontario, which celebrates artistic provocateurs like Ai Weiwei and Marina Abramovic, along with hosting talks, symposiums and meet-the-artists days. Expand your Canadian sporting knowledge by taking in a game at nearby Rogers Centre (formerly known as Skydome), where you might catch home team the Toronto Blue Jays. Head to the hip Queen West neighborhood for top-notch noshing at one of the city’s most feted new restaurants, Nota Bene, whose produce-driven menu offers an overview of the country’s best ingredients.
How to Get There
Our experience at the SoHo hotel this month for the beginning of our honeymoon was incredible, especially the concierge services - where whether it came to the ease and helpfulness of booking to having food delivered to our room - was quick and done with a smile. The bed was very comfortable and the hotel was sparkling clean.
We love the overall ambience of the Soho. Rooms are very well appointed. The location is great for attending entertainment or sports venues. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. I haven't had time to use the gym or the pool but they appear to be quite nice.
Friendly and helpful staff, nice location close to many landmarks (CN Tower, Rogers center, etc) and restaurants. Our room (220) was simply very good and well designed, few steps from Gym and terrace. Will come back soon.
