    (BTW: wondering what to do during your stay? Our 3-day Toronto itinerary can help you out.)

    1. The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto: a world-class hotel overlooking David Pecaut Square in the heart of Downtown Toronto

    Whether you’re looking for an elite weekend getaway to Toronto or glamorous lodgings for an extended vacation, The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto is hard to beat, with its exceptionally lavish rooms to stellar views of Downtown and David Pecaut Square as well as proximity to Scotiabank Arena, where the Maple Leafs play.

    The rooms are huge and elegantly designed, but in a contemporary fashion with high-end furnishings and sophisticated decor. In terms of amenities, there’s a full-service spa as well as elevated dining options that feature diverse menus and, as expected, a classy atmosphere.

    Fora Perks at The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto:

    • $100 hotel / resort credit.

    • Breakfast daily.

    • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

    2. Fairmont Royal York: one of the most luxurious hotels in Toronto, Canada

    Not to be outdone by The Ritz-Carlton, Fairmont Royal York offers a similar degree of excellence across the board, with slightly different offerings. The rooms and decor are a bit more traditional, with an emphasis on 20th-century elegance, but the attention to detail is just as meticulous. 

    Fairmont Royal York doesn’t have a spa, but it does have a “health club” with saunas, a whirlpool and a (gorgeously designed) indoor pool area. The hotel also hosts a bevy of ritzy shops, along with its own selection of upscale dining choices. 

    In terms of location, this hotel is across the street from Union Station Toronto, in a similar part of town as our previous choice.

    Fora Perks at Fairmont Royal York:

    • Breakfast daily.

    • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

    3. 1 Hotel Toronto: a stylish urban hotel with an eye for sustainability

    1 Hotel Toronto offers a dramatic departure from The Ritz-Carlton and Fairmont Royal York in terms of style. The vibe is much more hip and indie, with an additional focus on sustainable travel. Much of the hotel has been designed to be as eco-friendly as possible, while the decor reflects the hotel’s deliberate attempt to harmonize with Toronto’s surrounding natural beauty. The result is thoughtful and artistic, much like the Fashion District that 1 Hotel Toronto belongs to.

    You might also be surprised to learn that 1 Hotel’s amenities and accommodations are on par with the hotels in Toronto, Canada that we’ve already covered. There’s a state-of-the-art fitness center, farm-to-table dining options and, most importantly, lavish yet sustainable in-room amenities.
