When it comes to Toronto hotels, the city features some of the best in world-class brands.
In fact, thanks to the arrival of a handful of luxury hotels in recent years, Toronto now boasts an enviable combination of lavish and historic hotel options. Iconic favourites like the Fairmont Royal York, as well as more alternative, artsy hotel rooms offered in places like The Gladstone Hotel give unique options for every kind of traveler.
In addition to out-of-towners, Toronto hotels are also a go-to option of choice for a night on the town for Toronto young professionals thanks to their world-class bars and lounges.
So if you’re looking for a place to stay or simply stop by, these are the nine best Toronto hotels.
The Four Seasons
Not only do the accommodations at this Yorkville hotel come with the trusted Four Seasons Hotel stamp of approval, the spa and the restaurant are among the best in Toronto (maybe even Canada).
If you’re in the mood to get pampered, eat well, and have a thing for cheese (the hotel is home to the city’s only cheese cave), this luxury Toronto hotel is your best option.
The Thompson Toronto
If you’re looking for a lively luxury hotel in the heart of Toronto, the Thompson Toronto may be your best option. And if you like to party on patios, this is especially the case.
Le Germain Hotel (Mercer)
If you’re looking for more of a discreet vibe, but are still in the market for the kind of refined experience you’d find at one of the larger, luxury hotels, Le Germain Hotel may be your best Toronto hotel option.
Fairmont Royal York Hotel
The Fairmont Royal York hotel is one of the most iconic buildings in Toronto. It’s the best option if you’re looking for classic elegance in a sprawling downtown hotel that’s rich with history.
The Shangri-La Hotel
If you’re in the market for a bustling luxury hotel that’s located in the heart of Toronto, the Shangri-La Toronto could be your best option.
The Gladstone Hotel
If luxury chain hotels aren’t your thing and you’re looking for a more low-key, art-filled hipster vibe, The Gladstone Hotel is the best Toronto hotel option for you.
The Hazelton Hotel
Located right in the middle of Yorkville, The Hazelton Hotel is the best place to stay if you’re looking for an over-the-top scene in Toronto. It’s basically the embodiment of the term “posh,” filled with no shortage of eye-catching characters.
The Cosmopolitan Hotel
For a smaller luxury hotel that’s just off the beaten path yet still in the heart of Toronto (Yonge and King), The Cosmopolitan Hotel could be your stay of choice.
