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.

    • To know

    • The hotel is located in the heart of upper-class neighbourhood, Yorkville, in the north of Toronto city centre, on the corner of Yorkville Avenue and Hazelton Avenue. There are several restaurants and shops in the area and the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) is only a short walk away. You can also catch the subway from here and be pretty much anywhere in the city centre within 15 minutes. Although Yorkville isn't the liveliest of neighbourhoods, it is a quaint area with a relaxed small-town feel.

    • The hotel's 77 spacious rooms are all decorated in a similar style, with a palette of rich purples, fresh greys and lavish fabrics and carpets. The rooms start at a generous 500 sq ft in the deluxe category. Most of the rooms at the hotel are in the Luxury category and come in at 600 sq ft. Not only are the rooms are extremely cosy and tastefully designed, but they come with all the latest in the way of gadgets, like iPod docking stations, large flat-screen televisions, and a control panel with functions for everything in the room from the drapes to the lights. A little advanced for our simple minds, but tech-savvy guests won't have a problem finding their way around.

      The focus of the decor is on the rich textures used, which range from marble tops to zebra-striped wood. Every room has a walk-in wardrobe space leading to the bathrooms. A nice detail was the heated floors - handy in the Canadian winter. Bathrooms are al stocked with the French high end brand,L'Occitane en Provence, giving the bathrooms that extra pampering edge.

      Although the hotel is a modern build, there is plenty of cachet, as discreet as it may be, but pay attention to the rounded bay windows and the French doors some rooms have. This adds a welcome charm to the hotel.

    • The exclusive boutique hotel is one of our favourites in the city, especially for its friendly staff that couldn't be further from snooty, which is rare to find in this sort of establishment. If you're headed to the hotel, keep your eye peeled as the entrance is so discrete that it is easily missed.

      The hotel was built in 2007 and the aim was for it to be a permanent art hub for high-profile local artists like Bruno Billio (who also designed a room at The Gladstone Hotel on Queen Street West). As guests enter the hotel, not only will the hotel's signature scent (yes, we are serious) draw you into its depths, but a large silver sculpture of stacked suitcases by Canadian artist, Bruno Billio, at the entrance, sets the scene for the rest of the hotel's shared areas. Although the hotel isn't like its five star rivals in the city, you will appreciate its elaborate contemporary art collection with pieces scattered all over the hotel, including in the lobby, where you will find an ancient light projector, which acts as a clin d'oeil to show business, the industry a lot of the hotel's clientele is involved in.

      The lobby itself isn't very big, giving away the fact that guests aren't really the type to linger in hotel lobbies. But through the lobby you will find the beautiful slick bar with an outdoor terrace for the warmer months. An extremely popular hang-out for yuppie Torontonians mainly, you will also be able to spot a star or two here, especially during the Tribeca film festival.

      Back through the lobby is the access to the upper floors, where you will find the rooms, the spa, gym and indoor pool. With only three floors, the hotel feels a lot bigger than it actually is due to its private feel and quiet ambience.

    • The hotel has one restaurant, 'One', which is, like the rest of the hotel, sophisticated but subtle in its decor and wholesome in its food. One offers a range of choices for breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch, including fresh fish, shellfish and local all-Canadian meat. The menu might not be a vegetarian's idea of a feast, but the chef will be happy to rustle up something off the menu. The atmosphere here ranges greatly depending on the day and time, but it is rarely unpleasantly overcrowded, although weekends tend to be livelier than week nights. The restaurant is extremely popular with locals as well as with in-house guests, so to avoid disappointment try to book as soon in advance as possible. Guests also have the choice of ordering room-service all round the clock.
    • The hotel has its own private underground car park if you are travelling by car.

      The hotel has a beautiful private screening room, handy during the Tribeca Film Festival.

      The Park Hyatt Hotel is located in the north of Downtown Toronto in Yorkville, one of the up-scale areas of the city. It is here that you will find most celebrities visiting the city. The Park Hyatt is located just across the street from the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum), and is one of the best Park Hyatt hotels we have reviewed. However, the overall Park Hyatt concept is a little old-fashioned now among the myriad contemporary hotels springing up all over the world. This hotel is ideal if you like your more classical marble floored lobbies, and plain neutral colour schemes. The Annona restaurant's service left us extremely disappointed due to the staff's lack of professionalism, but the hotel bar does have a small terrace overlooking the city with splendid views of the Toronto skyline.

      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.

      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.

Its nondescript façade may not be much of a giveaway, but bit by bit as you explore the hotel, you will soon understand why it is that this top-notch design boutique hotel is our number one. 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!

      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).

      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.

      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.

      The Soho Metropolitan Hotel is located between the Entertainment district and the Art district of Toronto and is a popular hotel for a wide-ranging clientele, from Jude Law to the average family on holiday. For us, the hotel was a good all-rounder, but didn't make it in our top 10 due to its lacking atmosphere and need for a bit of a refurbishment to freshen up the rooms.

      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 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!

      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.

      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.
