Looking for the five-star, full-on luxury experience? Book in at the newly reimagined Park Hyatt, set in the heart of super-swish Yorkville. You’re met with all the spoils of a plush stay—Le Labo bath products and an in-room Nespresso machine among them—but the crown jewel of this property is its rooftop cocktail bar, Writers Room, serving lore-inspired libations and stunning skyline views. Sounds like a nightcap in the making.

1 Hotel Toronto

Those looking for a bit of nature with their city stay should check into the new 1 Hotel in King West, a decidedly serene space in the Thompson Hotel’s old digs. Its sustainable mandate—”Toronto’s first mission-driven luxury hotel”, they say—means organic cotton linens, locally reclaimed wood accents, complimentary wellness classes, plus organic produce served in the zero-waste 1 Kitchen. Talk about a total escape.

Gladstone House

The recently reopened Gladstone House is an artsy, inviting upgrade to the original 1889-era structure. Its loft-style guestrooms, outfitted with sky-high ceilings, exposed brick walls and work by local artists, make the place feel like a second home (with diligent housekeeping, of course.) Bonus: if eating well is on your staycation agenda, neighbouring Parkdale and Dundas West means you’re at the centre of all the city’s best restaurants and hotspots.

Shangri-La Hotel Toronto

It doesn’t get more downtown than the Shangri-La—some suites feature a bathtub that literally juts out over bustling University Ave. The high-end hotel caters to your every leisurely need: light-spilling, floor-to-ceiling windows, marble-clad bathrooms with heated floors and 24-hour room service, but we’d be remiss not to mention the Miraj Hammam Spa, its highly regarded relaxation spot with ancient treatments and modern skincare solutions on the menu.

Settling into your room at Hotel X Toronto feels like you’ve totally escaped the ever-present city stir. It’s chock full of hard-to-find, resort-like amenities: access to the sprawling, well-equipped gym, a screening room stocked with fresh popcorn and the year-round, heated pool on the rooftop (make sure to order spicy tuna bites to your lounger). Oh, and did we mention the views? Its lakefront location makes for one heck of an Instagrammable sunset.
