What are the Best Hotels in Toronto?
Toronto, the mini-New York as some call it, is home to great luxury hotels. The city is vibrant, growing and has non-stop activities for people of all ages and backgrounds as well as a huge variety of world-class restaurants. Today though, let’s take a look at what we consider the best hotels in Toronto.
Best Hotels In Toronto: #1 Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto
Located just a 6-minute walk from Queen Street West on University Avenue in one of Toronto’s tallest buildings, Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto is what The Luxury Travel Agency considers one of the best hotels in Toronto.
With easy access to the Art Gallery of Ontario, the vibrant waterfront and the non-stop energy on Yonge Street, the Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto is ideally located.
Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto offers 202 spacious guest rooms, among the largest in the downtown core, including several specialty suites for those looking to enhance their room experience.
The specialty suites each have a unique design paying homage to its namesake, including the Architect’s Suite after internationally distinguished, Vancouver-based architect James Cheng, who designed Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto; Zhang Huan Suite named after one of China’s most significant contemporary artists who crafted the stainless-steel sculpture outside of the hotel; Fazioli Suite after the renowned Fazioli piano located in our Lobby Lounge; handcrafted in Italy specifically for Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto; Garden Suite aptly named featuring a beautiful garden terrace overlooking the city with views of the CN Tower; Owner’s Suite with a dedicated office and the 2,200 square foot, luxurious Shangri-La Suite taking inspiration from the brand’s Asian heritage.
Art and entertainment intertwine in the hotel’s iconic Lobby Lounge featuring a private collection of rotating vintage couture dresses on display, amidst daily live entertainment featuring a roster of local musicians. Rare pieces from famed designers such as Versace, Alexander McQueen, Chanel, and Yves Saint Lauren, are regularly exhibited.
Be transported to another world without having to leave the city at Miraj Hammam Spa located inside the Shangri-La. Indulge in traditional Middle Eastern Hammam and Gommage treatments while your imagination transports you on a mystical journey into the Middle East. Lay relaxed on Jerusalem gold marble as you experience an invigorating full-body exfoliation using eucalyptus infused black Moroccan soap. This experience is considered to be the ultimate detoxification treatment. After you finish your treatment, take a dip in our indoor swimming pool or relax in one of the poolside cabanas.
