Best Toronto Hotel: Thompson Toronto

If you’re looking for a lively luxury hotel in the heart of Toronto, the Thompson Toronto may be your best option. If you like to party, this is especially the case.

The rooms are designed by New York’s Studio Gaia, and feature floor-to-ceiling windows and stunning views of the Toronto skyline and Lake Ontario – some of the best views in the city, in fact. The Thompson hotel is also home to one of the best restaurants in the city, Colette Grand. The French restaurant serves up some of the city’s best French onion soups, among other offerings. The salad bar is a favourite among lunchtime regulars.

One of the best perks about being a guest at the Thompson Toronto is access to the rooftop patio. Here, you’ll find both some of the best views and some of the best cocktails in the city. An added bonus is the rooftop swimming pool. If it’s been a few months since you stopped by for a drink, you may be surprised to know that the hotel recently redid its Lobby Bar, giving it a total facelift. The sleek space looks better than ever.

The hotel even features its own nightclub, Wildflower, where some of the world’s most famous DJs have hosted events over the years.

For both late-night eats before bedtime or a greasy hangover brunch, there is the Thompson Diner, which serves up an extensive menu of comforting goodness 24 hours a day. One of the best features about the hotel is also its location. It’s situated right in the middle of Toronto’s best offerings, and is just a short walk away to some of the city’s best restaurants, bars, boutiques, and lounges.

You really don’t have to leave the hotel to have one of the best weekends you’ll have in Toronto all summer.
