Four Seasons Toronto

Four Seasons Toronto

Yorkville’s five-star hotel is the definition of living lavish. It’s 55 storeys of plush suites, Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud’s in-house French concept Café Boulud and a state-of-the-art spa with steam rooms and an in-house beauty salon.

It doesn’t get more boujee than this 68-storey hotel with Asian-inspired accents throughout. Centrally located at Adeliade and University, expect floor-to-ceiling views of downtown Toronto and the usual luxe accoutrements, like the Miraj Hammam Spa and Momofuku right next door.

Boasting one of the best rooftop bars in the city is this laidback gem of a stay east of the Don River. This restored historic building has 58 rooms, each equipped with record players, linens and mini bars. You can Dine at Bistro+Bar or ascend to The Rooftop for impeccable views.

Ritz-Carlton Toronto

Ritz-Carlton Toronto

Toronto’s outpost of the global luxury hotel chain has sat on Wellington Street for over a decade. Standing 53 storeys, this glassy tower sits steps from all of Toronto’s flashiest tourist attractions in and around Front Street, though there’s plenty of relaxing to do inside the hotel itself.


Drake Hotel

Drake Hotel

West Queen West’s boutique hotel was synonymous with Toronto’s art scene for years. It’s a live music venue, restaurant, bar and rooftop patio rolled all into one. Stay in one of 19 rooms, get a drink at the Stardust downstairs, eat a burger on the roof then head to Drake Underground for the party.

When it comes to spacious amenities, nothing beats the sheer size of this hotel on Princes’ Boulevard. An 11,500-square-foot movie theatre, nine squash courts, two libraries, a lawn on the 29th floor—hard to believe it’s all part of one building. Plus there’s the breathtaking rooftop pool with direct views of the lake. 

The Annex Hotel

For a hands-off approach, book this chill 24-room stay on Brunswick Avenue. There’s no gym, room service, TVs or even front desk here: everything from check-ins to requesting extra towels is done through text. Listen to some records from Sonic Boom or head to the lobby restaurant for biodynamic organic wines.


Gladstone House

Gladstone House

The oldest hotel in Toronto is back. What used to be an old railway hotel built in 1889 has now rebranded slightly but it’s kept the antique Gladstone Cowboy elevator from 1907. Highlights here are definitely eccentric art pieces, new fitness rooms and the all-day bistro.

Plantlife abounds at this lush luxury hotel on Wellington that bills itself as the ultimate stay for the eco-friendly traveller (think organic linens and 3,300 plants.) There’s also an on-site composting system, farmers’ markets, and a rooftop pool next to the cocktail bar Harriet’s.
