This Ritz has a great location—across from Roy Thompson Hall and smack-dab in the center of the Financial District—and a solid elegance, embellished with a Canadian motif of brass maple leaves and local woods. The building itself is a cubelike glass podium topped off with a 53-story tower; guest rooms display spectacular views overlooking the CN Tower and Lake Ontario through floor-to-ceiling windows. Amenities include a full-service gym, saltwater pool, salon and
spa. The menu at TOCA, the hotel restaurant, stuns foodies with dishes using local crops and farm-raised meats while the lobby bar, DEQ, fills up daily with guests eager to try cutting-edge cocktails.
