Toronto Hotels Guide
If you're looking for luxurious accommodations in the heart of one of Toronto's most exclusive districts, then opt for either the Mobil Four-Star Park Hyatt Toronto (4 Avenue Rd) or the Mobil Four-Star Four Seasons Hotel Toronto (21 Avenue Rd). Both offer impeccable service, elegant surroundings, and easy access to midtown attractions like The Royal Ontario Museum and Yorkville's exclusive shops.
For more traditional environs, the landmark Mobil Three-Star Fairmont Royal York (100 Front St W) has been welcoming the likes of the British Royal Family and other heads of state since 1929. Conveniently located across from Union Station, and close to the CN Tower and St. Lawrence District, it's a memorable place to spend a luxurious night or two.
For a walk on Toronto's wild side, stay in a Crash Pad at The Drake Hotel (1150 Queen St W), a bohemian oasis along hip Queen Street West, which has fast become the neighborhood's unofficial cultural center.
Along the same strip, the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen St W) offers a similar immersion in Toronto's art scene with the added bonus of artist-decorated rooms. Rooms pay homage to an eclectic range of subjects, including biker culture, Canadiana, and jigsaw puzzles.
Close to the Eaton Centre and the theatres along Yonge Street is the Mobil Three-Star Pantages Suites Hotel and Spa (200 Victoria St), boasting large comfortable fully-equipped suites that offer stunning city views and washers and dryers for longer stays. A sister hotel, called The Cosmopolitan Toronto (8 Colborne St) offers a Zen-like ambience in the midst of the bustling Financial District. Its Shizen spa and Doku 15 Restaurant, featuring Japanese-with-a-twist cuisine, have brought it wide acclaim.
In addition to some sparkling hotels, Toronto has its share of fine dining. See the Toronto restaurants guide on the following page.
