The minute you walk into the lobby of the Kimpton Saint George, the feeling of something unique is undeniable. You’ll meet other visitors while hanging out in the Living Room, where you can enjoy local artwork and one-of-a-kind interior architecture. The hotel commissioned local artist Tisha Myles to paint a misty Toronto inspired scene on the lobby walls complete with a blue jay.
The 188 guest rooms are stylish, comfortable and well-appointed in a quintessential modern style with local Canadian artworks sourced by Arts and Objects. They feature comfortable beds topped with plush, luxury linens by Frette. The bathrooms have an understated elegance with a marble vanity, large walk-in shower and are stocked with the finest Atelier Blohm toiletries.
Beyond the hotel’s doors, guests are steps away from the Royal Ontario Museum, the University of Toronto, the Annex’s small shops and Bloor West’s independently owned eateries serving everything from sushi to gourmet ice cream to chicken and waffles. This boutique hotel also borders the upscale Yorkville neighbourhood where designer shops like Chanel, Tiffany, Louis Vuitton and Holt Renfrew abound.
In terms of dining onsite a gastropub, Fortunate Fox, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as a complimentary tea and coffee service in the morning and an evening wine hour social in the Living Room. A fleet of bicycles is available to borrow for the visitor who prefers to see this “City of Neighbourhoods” on two wheels.
“Forgot it? We’ve Got it!” is part of the Kimpton’s signature offerings. Anything you may have forgotten, from hair brushes, deodorants to shaving kits, are easily replaced.
