5 great Toronto hotels that don't get enough attention

Some hotels in Toronto don't get as much attention as they deserve. Whether you're looking for a staycation or a recommendation for a friend coming from out of town, these hotels should be on your list of ones to consider.

Here's a round-up of Toronto hotels that don't get enough attention.

One King West
King and Yonge is a pretty stellar starting point if you're looking to do some urban exploration, either on the east or west side of the city. Best of all, this sky-high hotel has a rooftop patio, cocktail bar, brunch buffet and is situated inside the old Toronto Dominion bank so there's lots of art deco details to gawk at.

Delta Toronto
The South Core hotel can be found just steps from the ACC, Rogers Centre, Ripley's Aquarium and Ferry Terminal. It features great views, plenty of amenities - including a pool and fitness centre - and it's connect to the PATH, which is super convenient, especially in the wintertime.

Hilton
The Hilton might be a household name, but it often takes second billing to the larger Sheraton down the street. In a prime spot at Richmond and University, it sports a large lobby great for lounging and meeting people, is home to one of the best hotel pools in the city and is super close to transit, the PATH and the now iconic Toronto Sign.

Hotel Le Germain Maple Leaf Square
The second Toronto location of this Montreal-based hotel chain often gets overlooked in favour of the one on Mercer Street. But if you want a more boutiquey abode, but don't want to venture far from the core, this hotel by the ACC should suit your needs. It features a modern interior, a late-night room service menu and is within walking distance from Union Station and Toronto's biggest sports bar.

Hotel Ocho
This relatively nondescript hotel in Chinatown puts you a stone's throw away from Kensington Market and Queen West, a.k.a. lots and lots of food options. There's also a Bike Share rack right outside and a stellar restaurant on site.
