Hotels in Toronto

Hotels in Toronto offer incredible glimpses upon a city nicknamed “Hogtown”, which derived from its once-prevalent pork processing industry. Known for its impressive skyline that includes the CN Tower, the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere and which houses a revolving restaurant, Toronto is a great place to catch picturesque lake views as well. We are pleased with the hotels in Toronto found below as they showcase the very best of what Hogtown has to offer in terms of both luxury and affordability. Before we get you to these hotels in Toronto, let’s take a look at some background information on the city to help you along the way.

Toronto’s name likely comes from an Iroquoian word that means “place where trees stand in the water”, a phrase linked to the Huron tribes’s usage of tree saplings to help corral fish. The area was an important gateway to one of the most traveled Native American routes to the northwest. For over 10,000 years people have been living in and traveling through the Toronto area. In 1793, the British established the city of York as a result of the Toronto Purchase, through which the Mississauga people surrendered the area to the British Crown. The year 1813 brought the Battle of York, which resulted in a United States tactical victory over the United Kingdom.  After the battle, the Americans carried out acts of arson and looting, which factored into a strong sense of Canadian nationalism that helped forge the nation. Toronto’s early population included a number of African-American slaves. Slavery having been abolished in 1834 in Upper Canada, it became a destination for United States southern slaves. Other immigrants were the Irish who had fled the Great Irish Famine of the 1840s and became the largest ethnic group in the city. By 1867, Toronto had become the capital of Ontario, establishing itself once again as a major, central North American gateway, this time by way of railroad, and also the largest alcohol distillation center in North America.

The capital and most populous city in the province of Ontario, Toronto today has a population of over 2.8 million people.  The city’s tourism is driven by arts, business, sports and recreation. Summer temperatures average around 77 degrees Fahrenheit, while winters are more suitable for hockey season, averaging near freezing. Toronto’s professional hockey team is the Maple Leafs, who play their games at Scotiabank Arena and are part of the “Original Six” NHL teams. Centre Island, a part of the Toronto Islands, is a popular place to take kids, as it contains an amusement park, a petting zoo, a Frisbee golf course, bike rentals and paths, wading pools, a beach and more. Other points of interest include Downtown, Casa Loma, Scarborough Bluffs, Royal Ontario Museum, Distillery District, Nathan Phillips Square, Rouge National Urban Park, Royal Alexandra Theatre, Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, Roy Thomson Hall, Princess of Wales Theatre, Royal Alexandra Theatre, Massey Hall, Toronto Centre for the Arts, Elgin and Winter Garden Theatres, Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, Ontario Place, Hockey Hall of FameRogers Centre, Coca-Cola Coliseum and BMO Field. Popular Toronto foods include poutine, which consists of fries, cheese curds and gravy, Canadian bacon, maple cookies and BeaverTails, a type of fried dough, to name a few. Toronto has its own cocktail named after it, which consists of Canadian whiskey, bitters and sugar, while the Canadian national drink is the Caesar, a type of bloody Mary. Lagers are popular beers that are enjoyed at sporting events and bars throughout the city. Equipped with some background information on the city, its time for hotels in Toronto that are at the top of their class in luxury.

  1. Nice article, I also would like to advice Oakville Ontario Hotels, If your looking for a hotel to lodge in during your visit then your in luck! That’s because this city features a large number of hotels and motels to choose from that are available in a wide range of prices. Remember though, as you make your selection that with so much to see and do there, you definitely won’t be spending too much time in your suite!

  2. Toronto is a wonderful city and I have connections there, from following professional sports teams to friends that I have known for years. There is always something to do there and the atmosphere is great every time I go. The one thing that I have not tried while there to now is staying in a penthouse!

    That will change as I see that there are some really great places to stay and at a reasonable cost. The next stay there will be one of the options that you have mentioned. I likely will invite some of my friends to stay with me and we will make it a nice weekend filled with good food, fun, and exploring. 

    I took the liberty of checking on some prices for these places and most were surprisingly reasonable when using a group stay plan, as you mentioned. That is the way to enjoy the massive spaces that you get with a penthouse in any case, and if planned properly, can be a memorable experience. I love the ideas that I get coming to your website! Thanks…

  3. I am not sure what I was expecting from the best hotels in Toronto but I was certainly well educated. A review of Toronto and what it has to offer had me wanting to visit and take a look around.

    When it comes to the hotels there was a lot more information than I was expecting with a good description of what was in the surrounding area, with the distances you need to travel to get to the sights mentioned.

    An excellent review that can be used for visitors to help them decide where they would like to stay.


  4. Very interesting article, I have never been to Toronto although I have family there. When I see those hotel images I wish I go there immediately. Honestly, it is not so expensive but I have two small kids who are not yet ready to travel. Anyway, I will visit this city sooner or later, thank you for sharing these amazing hotels.

  5. I;m so glad I bumped into this review. I wanted to go to Toronto later this year hence, I’ve heard it snows there and the weather is the opposite than my locating. I really want a hotel with luxury and affordable.I once rented a room where there was no microwave, no coffee and the restroom was tiny; I hardly fit :/

    1. So sorry to hear about your previous travels Linda 🙁 You’ll never have to worry about spaciousness when choosing one of these locations, so at least there’s that.

  6. Great article. I am currently planning a road trip through Canada, so I found this very helpful. You are very thorough and informative in your reviews and I appreciate how you listed the tourist attractions nearby each hotel. The pictures make each of these look so amazing I want to go there! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  7. I like the fact that I am reading this right now. you really never know what expect in a place you have never been before. And I love the interior decor in the images. The hotels are so beautiful. I have a couple of friends in that city. it will be a great idea to plan a trip, to reconnect with friends and get a feel of the total ambiance of Ontario.

    Great post. 

  8. I have stayed in quite a few hotels in my time, Greece, Fuerteventura, Spain but i have to admit these places look absolutely breathtaking, I’ve never stayed in a penthouse before but after seeing these I think it’s time I did.

    I would simply love to visit Toronto and it certainly would be an unforgettable experience if I could stay in one of these places.

    Visiting your website has given me some ideas and put me in the mood for getting away for a week or maybe two, I’m quite pleased that I came and read your website, thank you.       

  9. Toronto Ontario is a beautiful place and have visited it several times and even walked past the 12 York Street 5707 and hadn’t realised how stunning it was inside and the view looks amazing 

    I might have to see if I can check in there next time I visit and it is in quite a central location to the places I normally go to when I’m there

    Thanks for showing me inside some of the buildings that I have walked past a lot and thanks for giving me new ideas of where to stay in Toronto Ontario 

  10. This is the first time me and my family we will be traveling to Toronto, Canada and as advised, we will be bringing with us a lot of cold-weather clothes. But in what I understand with hotels like these, they have heaters installed to keep their customers warm. Perhaps, instead of worrying about the freezing cold, our minds should be focused on how to best enjoy the place, the scenery and the relaxing view from the hotels. 

  11. This looks like a trip worth paying for. I love that you included all the great hotels in torronto. Its good to go to a place that someone else reveiw as a nice get-away holiday vacation. 

    I’ll definitely be bookmarking this for later to show my husband. But overall great article and all the best to you.


  12. I have never stayed in a penthouse before and your article caught my eye because I went to Toronto last spring.  I have been thinking of returning to the city more often and I did not realize how affordable a penthouse could be if I traveled within a group.  It is an option I will now consider as the penthouses look beautiful and spacious and are near some areas of the city I am already familiar with.

  13. I looked forward to reading your Blog Post on luxury hotels in Toronto because when I landed in North America many years ago, this was my home town. When I visited the Toronto Dominion High Rises, the tower of the CN Tower was hoisted by Sikorsky helicopters for installation. I love this city.

    So refreshing to see you include prices. I was amazed that a few of them were in the affordable price bracket. Great looking properties. 

    My favorite is with price not being an option is Thompson Toronto mainly for the fantastic vista of the Toronto Skyline. That must look even more spectacular at night. Naturally it was also the most expensive. 

    The one that is in my budget is The Luxury Sub Penthouse. The other would be the St. Regis. 

    Toronto has changed a lot since I lived there. The sports, entertainment and theatre venues have blossomed. I found it ironic to read that the acoustics of their “new” concert hall, The Roy Thompson Hall had to be fixe. 

    Thanks for sharing these great places to stay in for a visit to the great city of Toronto. 

  14. Hi I have been to Toronto, but only for a few hours waiting for a connecting flight to Calgary. I would love to have stopped over for a few nights to explore. These places look amazing! I like the look of Grosvenor Street. I am planning a trip to Canada next year. Hopefully I will be able to stay there, just need to organise everyone first.

  15. 65 Bremner BLVD was my favorite on the list, and I was happy to see the cost-effective $73 per person as well. Not a bad price at all. I agree that even by judging the photo, the views are quite jaw-dropping, with the beauty of the Toronto skyline in the background. I would definitely be in love with this place early and often. Best yet, the Hockey Hall of Fame and Rodgers Centre is also nearby. 

  16. Hi, I’ve never been to Toronto (or Canada), but even just the view from those hotels makes me want to visit there. Out of the accommodation options you introduced, I would probably go for Gorgeous View Penthouse, because it´s not too “over the top”. However, it has a gorgeous view as the name suggests. 

  17. nice article! I am looking for a place near Air Canada though. I’ve never been to Toronto, but I would like know what are the residential places nearby, and what are the things you can do in the vicinity. I am planning to go there by next year, hopefully. 🙂 Anyway, thanks for sharing these information! Big big help! I thought it going to be that expensive there in Toronto.

  19. I honestly wasn’t too sure what to expect as I read this article. I, however, knew I will be wowed and I wasn’t disappointed. For now I am unable to afford any of these hotels but as I slowly build my business, I will own places like this. Thanks for an insightful article.

  20. Hello, 

    This was a really interesting read. 

    Toronto looks a great place to visit. I hadn’t realized there was so much to see there.

    The hotels you recommend look amazing and the photos are great. I liked that you listed all the facilities that were on offer.

    It was really useful you added the distances to different tourist attractions as this is very helpful if you are walking. 

    I think walking around a new city is a great way to get to know it.

    The prices seem affordable as well particularly if you came with a group of friends. 



    1. Cameron thanks for saying and you’re welcome. It’s a fine city and these hotels in Toronto are well-suited to welcome you back from a day of walking.

  21. Hey nice article you have there, Every time I visit Hotel X Toronto, there is a new food/bev offering — from Maxx’s Kitchen and Falcon SkyBar to the Nespresso Café. I also had the pleasure of dining at some special events at the hotel and can tell you the dishes were beautifully presented, generous in portion size and delish! If you’re looking for a cocktail recipe, I  suggest the Falcon Goddess or The “X” Perience.

    1. Ed thanks for the insights into Hotel X Toronto, It’s a fine choice as far as hotels in Toronto go. Your reviews and recommendations are well-received.
