The retro, redbrick exterior of this chic hotel—conveniently located near the TIFF Lightbox, site of the Toronto International Film Festival—blends seamlessly with the historic architecture of the surrounding theater district. The lobby has a library, a cappuccino bar, and a double-sided, open-hearth fireplace. Sleek furnishings fill ultramodern rooms, which have Bose stereos, iPod docks, and sexy see-through showers. Suites have separate bedrooms and living rooms,
fireplaces, and private terraces that afford superb views of the skyline. Every room in this intimate 11-story building has a different configuration, ensuring that regular guests never get bored. The restaurant, Victor, serves excellent tapas and a tasting menu divided by Toronto's ethnic neighborhoods—the "Little Italy" dish might be grilled octopus panzanella, for example.

We stayed here last week. We booked a "media" room where we couldn't access movies the room service menu we had inquired about before booking was not available,the lighting is oddly dark and the view of the alley didn't help anything. I felt invisible to the hotel staff in the lobby everywhere else they were great. We wouldn't go back here
