It's the oldest continuously operating hotel in the city, but edgy, modern decor livens up the 1916 boutique property and Canadian artwork and select heritage furnishings gives it a unique sense of place. Rooms and suites come in various shapes, sizes, and configurations (sofa beds and adjoining doors are good family options) because of the building's original architecture. All have king- or queen-size beds, plug-and-play gadget panels, and in-room safes that accommodate laptops. You have a choice of bathroom styles—some only have showers, but make no mistake, they're first-class and all have heated bathroom floors. Although there are no views, the rates include a full breakfast and other niceties like bottled water. A day pass to the Steve Nash Sports Club is available (complimentary if you book a suite).
