Discover our selection of the most luxurious hotels in Toronto, whether you want iconic views and rooftop pools, or private Jacuzzis and champagne bars...

Want to put a stylish spin on your staycation in The Six? You’re in luck: these luxury hotels in Toronto are here to save your weekend. From Friday night rooftop drinks with a view of the CN Tower lit up beneath the night sky, to slick Sunday brunches in restaurants with beach vibes, the top hotels in this eclectic city offer much more than just a space to sleep.

Whether your ideal itinerary leans toward browsing the installations at the Art Gallery of Ontario or bar-hopping on Queen West, these chic stays are all in central locations. That means you’ll be just minutes from the designer shops, slick eateries and culture-packed museums of Canada’s biggest city – all with a cushy place to lay your head at the end of the day.

An Iconic Hotel in a Toronto Skycraper

The St. Regis Toronto towers above the city’s downtown area, making its 31st-floor bar and restaurant LOUIX LOUIS a go-to spot for drinking and dining among skyscrapers. You’ll sit in a sumptuous leather booth as you peruse menu choices that are as luxe as the surroundings before making your way through decadent dishes like caviar blinis and seaweed-butter oysters. Don’t have a head for heights? Down in the spa, you can order a treatment that sounds good enough to eat, like an organic acai berry polish or the lavender and mango butter wrap.

At the St. Regis, you’ll be a short stroll from Toronto icons like the Scotiabank Arena, which is only an 11-minute walk from the hotel doors – great if you’re in town for a concert. After the show, return to your room (equipped with a European-inspired wet bar) to take in the glowing cityscape through enormous windows. With the thought of a hot cup of Joe from the Nespresso coffee machine and the heavenly rainfall shower in your ensuite to look forward to in the morning, you may not want to stay up too late!

Spa Bliss at the Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto

With its Asian-inspired interiors, the Shangri-La Hotel is a staycation option with an exotic twist. Transport yourself somewhere far away with a blissful session in the Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie Paris. Here Turkish bathing rituals meet French vinotherapy (yes, that does mean you’ll be slathered in products with wine as a prominent ingredient!). You can test out the brand’s hallmark treatments, like the crushed Cabernet scrub, before indulging in a candlelit swim under the glass roof of the lap pool.

Make a reservation at Bosk for the evening, where you can uncork one of 700 bottles from the wine wall to pair with your dinner. The hotel’s flagship restaurant serves Asian-Canadian fusion cuisine against a backdrop of wooden latticework and Chinese pottery. You’ll look forward to desserts like tangerine sorbet with yuzu caramel glaze, a nod to Toronto’s multicultural food scene.

Back in your room, relax in a space furnished in rich, dark woods and a marble-filled ensuite as tunes from the iPod docking station fill the room. In the morning, L’Occitane bath products will add a little extra luxe to your self-care routine.

Sophistication in the Luxurious Yorkville Neighbourhood

The Hazelton Hotel Toronto is in the trendy Yorkville neighbourhood and has the 5-star amenities and services to match – not to mention art collections that rival those of the bigger galleries. Swing by the must-see creative Ingram Gallery to browse paintings by contemporary Canadian artists. You won’t be able to resist picking out a quirky item or two for yourself at the gallery bookshop, which specializes in rare art books.

The hotel’s ONE Restaurant, led by the Food Network’s Mark McEwan, is an A-lister hangout ideal for dinner thanks to its alluring ambience and penchant for inventive dishes like cocoa-rubbed venison short loin and tandoori squash with lentil ragu. Along with other spaces at Toronto’s only independent 5-star hotel, this eatery’s décor was masterminded by globally acclaimed design company Yabu Pushelberg.

From the patterned tiles that line the bottom of the indoor pool to the plush chairs in the intimate cinema room, you’ll see that exceptional attention to detail is paid to the materials used throughout the hotel. In your room, styled with a glamorous nod to 1940’s Hollywood, indulge in that retro feeling with a huge zebra-wood dressing table, mirror TV and deep-green granite bathroom. You’ll even have a Juliet or walk-out balcony to watch the world going on below.

Superior Service at this Luxury Hotel in Toronto

It’s all in the details at the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto, from the complimentary overnight shoe shining to the twice-a-day housekeeping (including turn-down in the evening). You’ll also be waited on hand and foot in Cafe Boulud. Take a seat in the eatery’s vintage-style velvet shell chairs and let Chef Daniel Boulud’s French fare take you on a culinary journey to his grandmother’s home in Lyon. Dishes like the charcuterie board, a platter brimming with meat terrines, tangy pickles and sourdough bread, are ideal for sharing.

For a change of pace, check out the hotel’s roster of activities. Sure, you’re familiar with the CN Tower, but have you ever thought about strapping yourself to it and teetering on its edges? Let the hotel arrange this injection of adrenaline for you, then counteract it with a yoga class in the hotel’s own studio or a rose-gold facial at the on-site spa. Alternatively, wrap yourself in your ultra-soft terrycloth bathrobe and relax inside your room, a stylish space decorated in a chic blend of neutral tones with plush down bedding and a smooth granite ensuite.

Luxury Hotels in Toronto: Star-Studded Design at Bisha Toronto

You’ll be in stylish company at Bisha Toronto: one of its floors was designed by Lenny Kravitz, which is where you’ll find the Bisha Suite with its spacious outdoor terrace. Rooms have a darkly luxurious vibe, with sleek leather and Andy Warhol art (among 3,000 pieces on display at the hotel) taking centre stage in the décor.

Other well-known names have their hand in this hotel’s offerings, too, with Iron Chef’s Akira Back at the helm of the on-site fine-dining restaurant. Dinner impresses here, but for breakfast the casual eatery KOST channels a sunnier vibe with its contemporary Mexican cuisine and beach-inspired interior.

When the rays are out, slide your shades on and perch in front of the infinity pool on the patio to take in the sublime sight of the gleaming Toronto skyline against bright blue Lake Ontario. Or, if you’re a baseball fan, meander over to the Blue Jays’ Rogers Centre to catch a game – it’s only five minutes away by foot.

Classic Flicks and Mark Wahlberg-Owned Burgers in a Luxury Toronto Hotel

SoHo Metropolitan Hotel is luxury epitomized: rise from your bed topped with Frette linen from Italy and step onto the deliciously heated floors of your marble ensuite. Dressing rooms are adorned with intricate mill-work, and you can open and close the room’s drapes without even leaving your bed. Once you’ve woken up and are ready to roll, grab a free ride (in a premium Lincoln Continental sedan, no less) to the Toronto International Film Festival Lightbox to catch a cool film. Or, if you’re in the mood to be lazy, stick around the hotel for the day to relax in the health centre’s lap pool and steam rooms.

For a celebrity-approved bite to eat, rock up to Wahlburgers, the sports bar franchise owned by Mark Wahlberg and his brothers Paul and Donnie. You might recognize it from TV as the star of a documentary series on A&E. Comfort food’s the speciality here, with juicy beef burgers and good old Canadian poutine taking pride of place on the menu. For tickets to shows and restaurant reservations alike, send texts ahead of arrival to the hotel concierge, who’ll set up everything you need for a stylishly action-packed weekend.
