Fortunately there isn’t a shortage of places to stay in the greater Toronto region. Here is our selection of our favourite hotels...
As a landmark in itself, The Drake Hotel is not only a great place to stay but a cultural, entertainment and culinary hub which single-handedly centralised trendy Queen Street West’s art and nightlife scenes. With an informal and quirky atmosphere, this boutique hotel offers loft-style guest rooms brimming with pops of colour, local art and retro furniture. Home to an ever-growing art collection bringing together national and international artists, the hotel connects with the curious culture seeker in everyone.
Opening in spring 2021, the luxurious 1 Hotel Toronto is inspired by and celebrates the city’s natural environment, bringing the brand’s sustainable vision to life. Located in downtown Ontario, the property will capture the city’s diverse beauty all through the seasons and unlike most city hotels, will bring nature inside with floor-to-ceiling windows and local reclaimed barn wood furniture. Completing Toronto’s King Street, also known as ‘Canada’s coolest neighbourhood’, the hotel will be the perfect base from which to explore the city just a short amble away from iconic attractions including the CN Tower and Royal Ontario Museum. www.1hotels.com
For something extra special, the Fairmont Royal York has stood for over 90 years in the heart of Toronto. As a luxury escape, guests can expect incredible service, some of the best views in the city and spacious elegant suites, including the Fairmont Gold Suite offering a ‘hotel within a hotel’ vibe. The dining scene is impressive too, with REIGN Restaurant + Bar + Bakery offering Canadian Brasserie with a traditional French touch. The hotel is just a stone's-throw away from the city’s biggest attractions, including Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, the Scotiabank Arena and CN Tower.
