The four-story Hazelton Hotel belies the glamor that awaits the moment you set foot inside. The foyer’s playful stack of shiny chrome suitcases by Toronto artist Bruno Billio signals to tired travelers they are now luxury hotel guests. Indeed, artworks of all kinds — sculptures, photographs, paintings — help define the hotel’s interior. Internationally acclaimed design firm Yabu Pushelberg combines original art with a roster of rich materials and textures, including mohair-lined walls, zebrawood paneling and chrome detailing.
Bed and Bath
Spacious guestrooms feature a neutral palette of brown, gray and cream jazzed up with dramatic details such as glossy zebrawood closets, chunky marble bedside lamps, oversize leather headboards and modern Canadian art. French doors open to a Juliet balcony, adding charm, not to mention fresh air and sunshine. Adorned top to bottom in green, black and streaky white “Galaxy” granite, bathrooms are equipped with extralarge towels, roomy rainfall showers and heated floors. Luxurious beds are dressed in exquisite linens come with a pillow menu offering playful options like a “no-snore” or a “TV watching” headrest.
See and be seen at ONE, the hotel’s hip restaurant helmed by Toronto chef Mark McEwan and popular among celebrities and locals alike. Favorites include the tender and meaty lobster spoons and truffle frites. In summer the terrace is hopping. For a unique cinematic experience reserve the Hazelton’s state-of-the-art 25-seat private screening room, built to Hollywood standards. Elsewhere, there’s a saltwater lap pool decorated with imported Bisazza mosaic tile, a small but fully equipped 24-hour gym and a spa featuring Valmont skin products.
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. Local eateries include the cosy and unpretentious Carens Wine & Cheese Bar on Cumberland, and kitty corner from the Hazelton raise a pint at the Oxley, a lively pub that serves real British fare.
How to Get There
We arrived in Hazelton on the first night of our honeymoon after a long haul flight. Exhausted! The room was immaculate, beautiful suite with strawberries and a congratulatory note. We stayed for 5 nights and found the whole experience extremely relaxing. The room was cleaned to the highest standard. The area is a little outside the main city centre but this suited us perfectly. A really lovely experience in general and a fantastic way to recover and refuel before embarking on the rest of our holiday.
We had very high expectations prior to our stay at the Hazelton Hotel based on the great reviews (and high prices). For the most part, these expectations were met.
Room was ready when we arrived
Room type/location was as requested
Very quiet for sleeping/little outside noise and no noise at all from other rooms
Both room and bathroom very good size
Food and service at breakfast were both very good
Yorkville location very convenient and less congested compare to downtown
Many good restaurants nearby
The room furnishings are definitely need a refurbishments (many scratches/nicks on furniture, wallpaper peeling, sitting chair in room sagged badly, etc.). Definitely outdated. For the price point of this hotel we felt that the room furnishing should be in much better condition !
My now husband and I booked a two-night stay at The Hazelton in May of this year for our wedding and the experience was incredible start to finish! I arrived with my mother the night before the wedding with a carload of belongings and feeling a little frazzled. We were immediately welcomed by a friendly valet who got us organized, brought us to the front desk and later brought us to our room. Both he and the front desk staff emphasized their availability to assist us with anything we needed during our stay.
When we entered our suite we were impressed with the room features and personal touches, from the individual "his and hers" marble vanities in the la bathroom, to the spacious living area and the bottle of chilled champagne with a personal note of best wishes from the general manager.
The following morning, upon returning to the hotel with bouquets for the wedding, the concierge swiftly arranged to have them stored in a cool place, and as we got ready to leave the hotel to head to the wedding, the staff accommodated us in taking pictures in the hotel lobby.
When my husband and I returned from the reception that night, we were met with warm smiles and congratulatory remarks. The next morning, feeling exhausted from the day before, the front desk staff happily accommodated our request for a late check out.
In reflecting on our stay, we have said that of all the hotels we've stayed at we have never experienced that level of hospitality and personalized attention. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!
Thank you for helping to make our wedding experience a memorable one!

I've stayed at hotels which say many of the things which are said on the Hazelton Hotel website, but they didn't deliver. This place delivers. And then some. Every other place I've stayed at pales in comparison.
- Outstanding service. Not obsequious. Genuinely good service.
- The room was quiet. No noise from elevators. No noise from the street. No traffic sounds or honking or sirens. It was so peaceful.
- The air quality in the room was excellent. No fake cheap scents. No off-gassing from the carpet or furnishings. No mustiness.
- Pillow menu. Need I say more?
- Turn-down service included an invite to get my shoes shined. They tidied my stuff.
- Breakfast was outstanding. Best avocado toast ever.
- Spacious bathroom. Deep tub. Heated floors.
Um, none. Just that I could only stay for 1 night. I didn't want to leave.
I planned a surprise night our for my wife and I.
