The luxurious W chain's first Canadian hotel arrived in 2004, inside the old Bank of Canada building, but you'd never suspect it was a decade old after being greeted by the cubic water fountain and glowing red walls of the lobby. Bright, airy rooms are decorated in various shades of gray highlighted with electric-blue curtains. Be warned: glass showers are not inside the "private" bathroom area, so your traveling companion will get an eyeful. Penthouse suites feature wraparound terraces and 12-foot ceilings. The mezzanine-level Plateau lounge is popular with local professionals, while the late-night Wunderbar attracts models and celebrities. A partnership with Acura means guests can reserve a free car ride anywhere in the city.
