Fodor's Expert Review The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto

181 Wellington St. W, Toronto, Ontario, M5V 3G2, Canada

This Ritz has a great location—across from Roy Thomson 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 cube-like 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, and spa. The menu at TOCA, the hotel restaurant, stuns foodies with Italian-inspired dishes using local crops and farm-raised meats.
