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
The hotel is small and cozy, and the staff (in all departments) are pleasant and helpful. The rooms are modern and clean, and the technology that is incorporated is quite handy. The area is fairly walkable, with many restaurant options. You may want to bring ear plugs to sleep if you are a very light sleeper, there was construction etc in the early morning outside.
Good hotel but the restaurant and bar is closed at the moment, so you have to go to Wahlbergs for food or drinks next door. No mention of this anywhere. The room was good though, really nice bed and bathroom and the service was excellent. Expensive considering there is no bar or restaurant. Our room over looked the car park..so not the best views. We booked a luxury room. The location is good though very close to alot of bars and restaurants.
We ended up here last minute after our flight out of Toronto got cancelled. We had been staying elsewhere downtown prior to this and quickly booked this online and showed up. We ended up having a great time being stuck in the city for 2 nights. They gave us a complimentary room upgrade, and it was a great respite after a hectic day at YYZ. Huge space with heated bathroom floors, a large tub, great shower, and a huge open closet area. Everything was accessible without getting out of bed, which was great--the buttons to open and close the drapes, the lights on the other side of the room and in the hall, even the do not disturb button. Housekeeping also circled the weather on the card they left on the bedside table each morning. The minibar fridge was big enough for us to walk to LCBO and Shoppers Drug Mart and buy some cava and OJ for mimosas. The service was excellent too. Very friendly (we came and went often) and patient, and helpful. The location was nice to walk to restaurants and bars, and we used the pool. Would definitely stay here again.
I've been staying here repeatedly. Great service, great rooms. Conveniently located a short cab ride from Billy Bishop airport + downtown Toronto. Super comfortable bed & bathroom. Met all my requests and expectations. Highly recommend.
Highly recommended when in Toronto. Close to everything you need in the downtown area. Two new restaurants are opening soon, which will make the hotel an even better stay. The rooms are well laid out with plenty of space.
