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
Located right in Yorkville, this hotel has everything one may need: great service, friendly and very helpful staff, cozy rooms with a beautiful view, and amazing amenities. With an incredible Spa and one of the best restaurants in the city (One restaurant), The Hazelton Hotel is definitely the place to be at! Will definitely be going back there soon, and 100% recommend to anyone who's looking for something special.
Hand-picked personalities, passionate therapists, and the soothing environment made my birthday morning a one-of-a-kind experience.
Extremely caring, attentive, and friendly staff. From the most welcoming and hospitable staff (Sadia, Sherina and Raymond) to the exceptional RMT (Mary) to the personal touch and overall consistency made the experience complete and comprehensive for me.
Spa at the Hazelton was the most unforgettable experience I’ve ever had. Couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you, guys!
We were able to book the executive suite for a photoshoot. Great layout and the view onto Yorkville was pleasing. The window let in nice natural light and it was a very comfortable and elevated experience. Highly recommend this hotel
