What Is An Exclusive Listing?
Stay at a boutique hotel and you’ll wonder why you didn’t start sooner, from the personalized decor to the intimate rooms to the sought-after amenities. Unlike larger chains, they provide a unique and luxurious experience hard to find elsewhere in the world. So whether you’re travelling from out of town or are in desperate need of a little staycation, we’ve rounded up five of the best boutique hotels in Toronto.
The Drake Hotel
Easily the most well-known boutique hotel in Toronto, The Drake knows a thing or two about pleasing its guests. It probably has something to do with the suites’ modern eclectic and cozy interiors. Or maybe its thanks to the hotel’s stellar brunch menu and rooftop patio. Come to think of it, there’s also live music and cultural events happening daily. Okay, we get it now.
Catering to the fashionable set, Toronto’s Cosmopolitan is located in the heart of downtown, but you’ll feel far removed from the chaos once you step inside. With only five stylish suites per floor, privacy is at a premium. And with a luxe spa, steakhouse and wine bar on site, you really won’t have to leave the hotel at all.
The Beverly Hotel
Nestled on the city’s bustling Queen West strip, this trendy hotel offers rooms that are everything you wish your condo suite could be. The bright white interiors are elegant and inviting. The food is also a must, from the ground-floor restaurant that serves impeccable brunch dishes to the rooftop patio that provides appetizing tapas-style fare.
The Ivy at Verity
When fleeing the city to vacation in Europe isn’t in the cards, one can always pretend, right? This boutique hotel boasts an elegant European vibe, with rooms reminiscent of luxe Parisian flats. Located in a restored 1850s chocolate factory on Queen East, the building’s history is just as enchanting as the hotel itself.
The Broadview (coming soon!)
Okay, so The Broadview hasn’t officially opened its doors yet, but the soon-to-come boutique is too intriguing not to include on this list. The 125-year-old building (formerly Jilly’s strip club) will soon contain 58 stylish rooms, a restaurant, a cafe/bar and even a rooftop terrace. Get ready to meet the new establishment this spring.
