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
Great time at Hazelton in December. Surrounding area is great for shopping. Hotel staff is very friendly and food is amazing. Airport transfer was seamless. Would definitely recommend as the place to stay in Toronto!!!!!
Special evening for valentine. Room was set up as requested. Service impeccable, room extraordinary. Had dinner at One...exceptional. Overall experience memorable. Definitely returning for a two day stay to try their salt lap pool and spa services.
The best hotel I ever stayed at. Everything that I needed was accomodated for without any hesitation. This is a hotel that will go the extra mile for their guests. The Hazelton is the definition of service.
I am looking forward to my next stay
My husband and I were here in January. It was our first trip to Toronto. I was glad we chose the Yorktown area. We were very spoiled at the Hazelton! Its location is close to shopping and multiple restaurants as well as the ROM.
The bathroom is dreamy, the bed from comfortable, and the service was wonderful!
First time I stayed and everyone in the hotel is friendly, helpful and professional. A special mention for Dean at the concierge desk who was remarkably diligent and helpful.
Food in the restaurant was also excellent, both for breakfast and dinner.
