Adelaide Hotel Toronto

Why it made the list

This hotel "has arrived", just like its guests. The luxurious design and decor materials are impressive, as is the location. It's just moments from the city’s finest attractions. The Adelaide is poised to become Canada's first St. Regis Hotel, so expect enhancements in 2019 and 2020. For now, pet stay for free, once you sign a waiver, and the Starwood program provides free Wi-Fi.

In a word, glamorous. This 65-story, hotel-and-condo tower g Read More


Hôtel Le Germain Toronto

Why it made the list

Where boutique hotel meets luxury standards. We love the Germain's cozy vibe and high-end pedigree. It never hurts to offer a Lexus courtesy car, eco awareness, a Tesla charging station and no checkout time. We're suckers for libraries and especially library ladders in lobbies. Bonus: Frette 100% Egyptian cotton sheets, Bose stereo system, big TVs with HDMI ports, swing-out work stations and a mini bar.

Ritz-Carlton, Toronto

Why it made the list

The Ritz is lightening in a bottle. We love how this modern property provides all of its trademark luxury in a contemporary setting. Witness the 400-thread count Frette bed linen, for starters. Rooms are enormous, with spectacular views overlooking the CN Tower and Lake Ontario through floor-to-ceiling windows.

Living up to the razzle dazzle of its name, the Ritz also ha Read More


Four Seasons Toronto

Why it made the list

The Four Seasons is swanky, indeed, with a thriving restaurant, bar and patio. We love the location, adjacent to high-end fashion stores, including famed Holt Renfrew, Burberry, Prada, Chanel, 
Escada, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Cartier, and Tiffany & Co. Two hotel restaurants are overseen by iconic chef Daniel Boulud, who does a mean rotisserie chicken.

The Omni King Edward

Why it made the list

With a crystal ballroom fit for Cinderella, the King Edward is a lavish destination for special occasions. We love how the $40 million renovation preserved the best from the original 1903 design--the grand staircase, the architectural features, the ballroom--but punched up the decor.

Shangri-La Toronto

Why it made the list

There's room to breath in this luxury hotel's generously-sized quarters. The lobby comes alive at night as a music venue, after serving as a tea room, dim sum palace and champagne cave. Bosk restaurant earns our respect with their well-edited dinner menu.

Less than six years old, the Shangri-La puts an arty twist o Read More


The Ivy at Verity

Why it made the list

Suitable for modern European royalty, the Ivy is the perfect small hotel for a quiet stay in T.O. The spa, fitness area and pool are open to women guests, exclusively, so there's a strong feminist ethos underpinning the hotel. Note the in-house flower shop, deluxe bedding and huge rooms overlooking a private courtyard. Complimentary breakfast is delivered to your room.

Hazelton Hotel

Why it made the list

A hotel worthy of your Valexra Avietta luggage. The Hazelton has a high-end design pedigree, and a whiff of mystery, courtesy of the dark lighting and decor. We love the location, with Yorkville Commons next door, and the 600 square-feet guest rooms.

Bisha Hotel & Residences

Why it made the list

Lenny Kravitz's design studio made the rooms on the 7th floor extra fabulous, but the other five floors are equally impressive. Thank you, Bisha, for bringing glamour back. It starts at the entryway, where the door is flanked by two cast bronze sculptures from noted Japanese artist Jun Kaneko. We love the over-the-top decor--think black marble, dramatic art, low lighting--and the thumping lobby music.

A dazzling newcomer, Bisha is a luxury hotel that delivers d Read More
