Amy Adejokun Section editor

The four-star Pantages Hotel and Spa has an excellent reputation among the locals due to its hosting of various events including fashions shows during fashion week and cocktails during the TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival). A small hotel but in a prime central location, a funky contemporary decor and a fairly good range of onsite facilities, this is a great base for exploring the rest of the city from. Furthermore, The Pantages is a suite-only hotel, meaning that guests can be independent when it comes to meal if they prefer a self-catering option or if they have young children.

    Location 9.23 /10

    The hotel is located in Downtown Toronto not far from Younge-Dundas Square, where you will find the Eaton Shopping Centre - also the largest shopping centre in the world that is within a city centre. The hotel is also within walking distance of the city's main attractions like St Lawrence Market, a vibrant indoor food market, the Air Canada Centre, the Hockey Hall of Fame and the Sony Centre for the Arts. The hotel is close to various tram lines, making it fairly easy and quick to travel from one end of the city to the next. Pearsons International Airport is about 20 minutes away by car.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    There are 92 suites at the hotel - all are located on floors 10 to 17. The lower floors are residential, except for the fifth floor, where you will find the Shizen Spa. Every room is fitted with a full kitchen - including a full stove, microwave, refrigerator, washer/dryer, dish washer and a range of kitchen utensils (the hotel provides enough for two people and can give guests more crockery upon request). As the hotel concept is based on well-being, guests will find a yoga mat in each suite, as well as green tea aromatherapy bathroom products. All rooms have the usual mod-cons, including a large flat-screen television, mini-bar, in-room safe, bathrobes, slippers, complimentary tea and coffee-making facilities, CD players, and iPod dockings stations. The most popular room category is the Executive, which all have sofa beds. There is a 50 CAD charge per child sharing the room. The rooms have hardwood floors and large floor-to-ceiling windows (which open), giving the room a fresh ambience. The bathrooms are well-designed as they are pleasant to spend time in, as well as ergonomic; all have rain shower heads. The colour scheme in the rooms tends to lean towards a neutral palette in order to give the guest a restful experience.

    There are four different suite categories: chic, urban, boutique and skyline. Dimensions start at 395 square feet to 775 square feet. The larger rooms are worth the extra spend if you are going to be visiting with young children, however the smaller suites are great value as they have all the facilities needed and are generous in size, in comparison to most city hotels.

    Smokers will be relieved to know that the hotel still has a handful of smoking rooms - upon availability.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The urban chic boutique hotel is a great choice if you want a room with lots of space. Due to its condo-style, the suite-only hotel is suitable for short and long-term stays.

    In terms of facilities, the spa and Martini lounge are the main attractions. The Shizen spa, located on the 5th floor, has eight treatment rooms (including two for couples). The space is pleasant and relaxing with the soothing sound of running water in the background. The therapists use the high-end French brand, Guinot, for treatments. Food and alcohol is served here. We recommend that you book your treatment at least 24 hours ahead. Otherwise, for guests wanting to take the spa experience a little bit further, there are attributed spa rooms, like the 'Rainforest room', which has its own hot tub and steam room. There is also a gym (complimentary guest-use) open from 5:30pm-11:00pm. For guests who need a bit of R&R before heading out or up to their room, there is also the Library Lounge just next door to the bar, complete with thick shaggy rugs, a range of light-hearted ar and design books to flick through and comfortable sofas and armchairs to sink in. This area is open all day and has a real living room feel, making it a pleasant area to spend time in. Otherwise, there is wireless internet access throughout the hotel, but this comes at an extra charge.

    The hotel feels very compact as there are no large sweeping restaurants, bars and the like, as you would find in one of the top end hotels. However, the advantage here is that guests are left to get on with it without being disturbed by room-service every half-hour. Great for guests who like their intimacy and peace.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    The hotel's main feature is its unique concept Martini bar, where the chef, Shaine Straiko, elaborates The Pantages' Gastrotini menu, pairing traditional classics with the bar's original Martini cocktails, which works rather well with in-house guests as well as the locals. For guests wanting to have a drink, there is also a varied Martini menu and a few picky bits (as part of the 'theatre menu'). The lounge is open only for dinner. There is often a lively atmosphere here, especially in the evenings at the weekend, when there are various events like live Jazz music bands playing, or promotional offers, like the 3 CAD mini-burger night. The bar itself is modern and full of colourful strobe lighting giving a young edge. There is no room-service facility.

    However, if you are hungry, the diner just next door, Fran's, serves food 24 hours. Guests who opt for a bed and breakfast formula have the option of having breakfast here.

      The stately and classic Trump Toronto is one more in the line of Mr. Trump's splendidly luxurious hotels. Recently opened, the opulent hotel's champagne and caviar colour scheme is cosy and slick. Everyone here is treated like a VIP, which is what Trump hotels pride themselves on to distinguish themselves from other five star hotels. Located in the heart of Downtown Toronto, in the Financial District, the hotel is likely to attract more of a business clientele, but for the rest of the family, the rooms are a pleasure to stay at for a long weekend.

      The four-star Cosmopolitan is situated in a prime busy location right in the heart of the city centre and although it doesn't have much in terms of facilities, it is a good option for guests who like to feel independent and who like staying somewhere with a private atmosphere. The accommodation comprises of apartment-rooms only, meaning that the rooms are spacious and have a residential feel similar to that of a serviced apartment block. The Cosmopolitan is part of the same group as The Pantages, which is close to the Financial District (Yonge and Dundas).

      • Location 8.19

      One of the top luxury hotels in Toronto, The Fairmont Royal York is second to none. Host to three generations of the British Royal Family, it's not hard to see why this landmark hotel would be the Queen's first choice. A historical hotel that first opened in 1929, it is still very much still the centre of Downtown Toronto, despite its traditional interiors and rooms. The perfect place to stay if you're looking to be treated like royalty right in the centre of Toronto. The only downside for us, was the lack of intimacy in the hotel lobby and its restaurants - the hotel, despite its sophisticated decor and facilities, is buzzing with activity, which makes it feel more like the train station it was made to look like rather than an exclusive haven.

      A monumental hotel in size, where guests don't go amiss for anything at all, be it a diverse range of restaurants or wellbeing facilities, everything is right here on site. Located in Downtown Toronto just opposite the Tribeca Film Festival screening venue, the Ritz Carlton is a great choice if you want to be within walking distance of most of the city's attraction and hustle and bustle. The hotel itself has a traditional Ritz-Carlton feel in its large daunting all-marble lobby and high ceilings, but as always, the service is up to scratch, leaving guests with an overall pleasant experience.

      • Easyopinions nc
      • Value for money 6.84
      • Location 9.19

      There are two Intercontinental hotels in Toronto, one in Yorkville (north of the city centre) and the Centre property near Front Street, which is the hotel we reviewed. Located in the Financial District, the hotel is also attached to the aluminium and glass clad Metro Centre. The hotel itself is in a prime location, where most attractions are within walking distance and it is near tram lines that take you all over the city. Its atmosphere is more corporate than that of a holiday one. However, if you like your no-fuss standard Intercontinental rooms and service, then it is a suitable hotel. The Intercontinental Toronto Centre isn't often visited by families, but it doesn't have a policy against young children - in fact the hotel even has a dedicated kids' zone. Couples and business people tend to make up the main bulk of the clientele outside of cultural events like the TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival).

      Le Germain Maple Leaf Square, not to be confused with the second Le Germain hotel in the city, Le Germain on Mercer Street, is the more contemporary of the two, although in terms of design the two are quite close. The focus here is on aesthetics and the atmosphere is a little livelier than at the Mercer Street hotel, although the staff is still as friendly and efficient. The advantage of the Maple Leaf hotel is its location. Right next to Union Station, the main train station, and in the midst of the financial district, business types might prefer to stay here rather than on Mercer Street. It is also a few minutes' walk from the Air Canada Centre. We liked this property's sleek and young ambience and would recommend it to couples looking for a high-standard no fuss place to stay.

      Le Germain on Mercer Street, not to be confused with Le Germain Maple Leaf Square, was without doubt one of our favourite hotels in Toronto as it is an all-round good-value luxury five star hotel. With a subtle business atmosphere and a strong French identity, Le Germain is very distinct from other hotels in the city. Comfortable, very well appointed and thought-out, the hotel is also suitable for leisure guests. Its location, at the heart of the Entertainment district, means that it is within walking distance of most attractions in the area without being right in the middle of the hustle and bustle. A perfect choice for professionals who are used to staying at luxury hotels and for couples looking for a simple yet high standard hotel.

Ideal for a trendy clientele who is fond of gadgets and who likes being surprised at every turn. Nowhere else will you see so much effort being put into every single detail, and nowhere else will you be able to sit at the chef's table in the kitchen at 3:00am and order - well, whatever your imagination can rustle up!

      One of our favourite hotels in the city, the Thompson is fully deserving of the hype as well as its title as a top-end hotel with a pretentious edge. Located on a quiet backstreet just off Bluejays, it's one of those hotels that you are unlikely to just stumble across, but is fully worth the detour for the restaurant, even if you're not staying here. With stunning open plan interiors and an ultra-exclusive roof-top bar complete with the city's only outdoor (heated) infinity-edged pool, it's is enough to keep you coming back for more every time you visit the city. A contemporary and stylish pocket for arty trendy types wanting an exclusive hang-out away from the hustle and bustle.

      The Hazelton, a Leading Hotel of the World, isn't one of those big flashy and brash hotels that are so often associated with luxury hotel status, but it sits discreetly and self-satisfyingly in Yorkville, Toronto's up-scale neighbourhood. The Hazelton is one of the biggest star hangouts in the city, especially for those who want some peace and quiet. As the sophisticated yet understated hushed interiors have been designed to satisfy the most demanding of celebrities, you shouldn't find much to complain about here! An ideal relaxing haven from which to explore the rest of the city, especially if what you're after is a romantic and intimate setting. Although the hotel doesn't turn children away, it isn't the most adapted hotel as there isn't much in the way of activities for young kids. A real home away from home, you don't have to be a star here to be treated like a VIP.

      The Drake Hotel, despite its slightly snooty atmosphere, is one of our favourite hotels in Toronto. Small, intimate and completely art mad, you'll have a hard time finding something like it in the rest of the world, let alone in Toronto. There are so many quirky details incorporated in one space that it's hard to know where to begin! It's a hotel that people love to hate because it's got everything just right - but let us reassure you: it's all true. The Drake is one of those hotels that has something for everyone, be in an outdoor space, live music, an incredible flair for art, cosy rooms or friendly staff, the Drake has it all. Located right in the centre of Toronto's art-hub on Queen Street West, this is a great base to explore the rest of the city from, especially for guests who like to do something different every evening without having to go too far afield. The hype that surrounds this hotel is absolutely and completely justified - it is rare that we give hotels a 10/10, but The Drake deserves top marks. Congratulations to the Drake team for getting it spot on!
