The Adelaide Hotel Toronto
What We Love
- Guestrooms are the city’s most spacious (ranging from 550 to 1,300 square feet); even the smallest could moonlight as suites
- Unimpeachable white glove service
- Chocolates and bottled water come with turn-down service
- READ MORE: 72 Hours in Ontario
What To Know
- This property is popular among business travelers
- Location on a congested, busy street in the city’s financial heart favors convenience over beauty and romance
- High-luxury, bling-heavy decor is not for those looking for the light, fresh, airy or discreet. Crystal, mirrors, black marble and tufted black leather reign supreme
- Free WiFi
- Handicap Accessible
- Parking On Site
- Room Service
Make your way past the hotel’s porte cochere, which is adorned with a 500,000-piece cut glass and crystal mosaic mural (and on most days a string of Lamborghinis and Mercedes), and you’ll be greeted by the scent of caviar and champagne wafting through the lobby. (The exclusive fragrance and the so-called “scent installation” were fashioned by local perfumer Tracy Pepe, of Nose Knows.) Similarly luxurious are the lobby’s gleaming marble floors and black crystal chandeliers — a color scheme that seems to take its cue from the Visa Black Card. But most striking is the enormous 1,322-pound Swarovski crystal cherry blossom installation that blooms (and blinds) from behind the front desk.
Bed and Bath
Even standard guestrooms, which start at 550 square feet, feel like suites. Each has high ceilings, plush Italian Bellini linens, tufted leather headboards, fresh orchids, floor-to-ceiling windows and iPod/iPhone/iPad systems. The decor and color scheme (whites, slate-grays, espresso-browns and gleaming beluga caviar–blacks) give the accommodations a strong, masculine and expensive look. The suites seem fashioned for trysting tycoons, with fireplaces and white leather club chairs. The bathrooms are equally large and luxe: The in-mirror TVs are perfect for a soak and a sitcom, and even the bath products (packaged under the name Trump, in case you missed it) are presented on a silver platter.
The sort of place where Gordon Gekko types celebrate closings over wagyu striploin, the America restaurant, on the hotel’s 31st floor, is as flashy the rest of the property, with 24-foot ceilings, heavy velvet curtains and a floor-to-ceiling 1,000-bottle wine wall fashioned after the collection of skyscrapers beyond. Chef Markus Bestig’s seafood-meets-steakhouse menu puts the spotlight on designer protein (think Nova Scotia lobster and local Wellington County beef tenderloin). When the weather is clement, book a table on the outdoor terrace, which has spectacular views of an ever-expanding skyline. Just next door is the two-story PureBeauty Salon and Spa. It features an enormous reception counter made of solid Jerusalem quartz, a 65-foot lap pool that was inspired by 19th-century Russian quartz baths, and a list of de rigueur treatments (facials, manicures, etc.) that use quartz-based products.
In the Area
Catch a performance of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra or, in the early fall, a selection of standout movies during the Toronto International Film Festival, at the bell-shaped Roy Thomson Hall. The Trump Toronto is a Platinum Card’s throw away from an abundance of excellent restaurants. Try Gabardine Fine Grub and Libations, a snug and festive gastropub serving refined comfort food (try the Chinese BBQ pork or the Ontario whitefish tacos). For a latte and pastry, forget Starbucks and make a beeline for Dineen Coffee Company. And if you want a dose of some culture, visit the Design Exchange’s permanent collection highlights, an eclectic mix of decorative arts, graphic design, furniture and housewares.
How to Get There
The entire staff was overly accommodating, friendly and professional. We celebrated my daughter's 13th b-day, and the staff made her feel extra special with little extras and well wishes everywhere. At check-in, Alejandra was exuberant and welcomed my daughter with excitement. Very friendly and accommodating. Upon getting to our room, we received special beverages to celebrate the event as well.
The room was incredible - luxury and comfort everywhere. Felt like royalty in the deluxe corner suite. Room was very clean and spacious and had everything we needed to enjoy a nice weekend in this great city.
Henrique (bellman) also gave us some great suggestions for things to do to pass the time as we wondered around the city. * Check out The Rec Room near CN Tower!
Infinity pool on the top floor was cool, Louis lounge was beautiful and everything about the stay was top notch.
I grabbed a great deal online via an agent but they still recognised my Bonvoy at check in and gave a nice upgrade to help celebrate my wife’s birthday.
Room was classy and spacious for downtown - just what you would expect for this brand.
Every member of staff encountered from my bags being collected, check in, dining and concierge was 5* and I would highly recommend this hotel if staying in Toronto again.
My husband and I traveled to Toronto for the weekend from Ottawa. It was our first time staying at The St. Regis. The hotel was beautiful, the staff exceptional, the location incredible and the amenities amazing. Alejandra the manager on site, upgraded our room to a luxury suite. She's was so friendly and personable. The hotel is within walking distance from some great restaurants (we went to Canoe on Friday evening and it was by far one of the best dining experiences of our lives), shopping and tourist sites. The highlight of our trip however was our Sunday morning experience. We arrived in the lobby wondering how to get to the start line of the SportingLife 10km run. Yonge street was closed off, UBER prices were through the roof, and we didn't want to have to take a bus because they were being re-routed. We asked the desk to order us a cab. One of the doormen went outside to grab us one, when he came across another fellow doorman, George (who wasn't working but dressed in running gear with a race bib). George was also running the 10km race and insisted that we ride in a luxury car with him to the start line. What a NICE guy! We had a great comfortable ride with him and we agreed we'd run it next year if he could pull off the same service again;) Congrats George on a 42min 10km race! You ROCK!!!
We absolutely love the St. Regis. Our very first experience was for an anniversary for my wife and me. ALL the staff called us by name. Wished us a happy anniversary for two days. Gave us all the extra perks and love a hotel could ever provide. We have been back many times the most recent to celebrate our daughters 16th with a few friends. OUTSTANDING! There would not be enough space to express how thrilled we were with what they did for us and our daughter.
I highly recommend the St Regis in Toronto
Excellent hotel and wonderful rooms full of all confort
Food is ok, should be more 5 star standards but is ok.
Beautiful rooftop bar and amazing indoor swimming pool.
The hotel is located very close Eaton square, heart of the city
