The following Toronto hotels are divided into three categories:
Luxurious (over C $ 250)
Moderate ( C $ 150 to 250)
Inexpensive (up to C $ 150)
These are minimum prices for a double room excluding tax and breakfast unless otherwise stated specified.
Province of Ontario sales tax and government sales tax are added to the hotel bill and are not normally included in the room rate. In Toronto it is customary to tip (doorman: around C $ 5).
In this boutique hotel in the heart of the banking district, wellbeing and fashion consciousness count. But not only trendsetters will feel at home in the 95 suites and two penthouses, but also other generations of travelers who appreciate the simplicity and restraint of the hotel design.
There are only five suites per floor, and the rooms are bright and have large windows. The two-meter-high indoor fountains are an interesting detail.
The Shizen Spa wellness center combines new acupuncture methods and a holistic philosophy with classic beauty treatments. The equally elegant sister hotel The Pantages Hotel and Suites near the Eaton Center is also worth a visit.
