Fodor's Review

An intimate size and focus on local art and products helped this hotel earn raves as the "anti chain-hotel Toronto experience"—really, it's a sort of community event space, with artist-designed guest rooms and an emphasis on everything that is one-of-a-kind. The hand-operated 1904 elevator is one of three still working in Toronto. (Ask for assistance to take a ride in it.) Each room is a distinct artist's vision: In the Racine Room, maroon-velvet furnishings complement a stack of vintage steamer trunks that hide the TV and DVD player; the Model Citizen room plays with a peacock theme, complete with a lucite bird light-fixture and a purple tail-feather headboard; and the two-story Tower suite, ready for Rapunzel, contains not only a wraparound view of the city, but also a tower bedroom.
