Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Toronto

Shangri-La Hotel Toronto
Positioned between the financial and entertainment districts in Downtown Toronto, the Shangri-La Hotel Toronto is one of the city’s hotel heavyweights.
One King West
This hotel was once the prestigious Dominion Bank, opened in 1914 using the same architects who designed the magnificent Royal Ontario Museum on Bloor Street.
Cosmopolitan
Eastern-influenced Zen-boutique hotel in the heart of the business district...
Hilton Garden Inn
If you hadn't seen the brand emblazoned on the outside of the building, you'd swear you were standing in the lobby of a fancy-pants boutique hotel.
Madison Manor Boutique Hotel
If Anne of Green Gables came to the big city, this is where she'd stay.
Park Hyatt
Swishing past the fountain courtyard and into the serene environs of the opulent Park Hyatt lobby, there's already that warm-glow-of-an-upgrade feeling.
Swan’s End Guest House
Toronto Islands: a fun day trip by 10-minute ferry, but stay the night? Torontonians will tell you its madness and can't be done. Actually, not only is it possible, this is possibly the most elegant place to stay in Toronto.
Index G B&B
A quirky bed-and-breakfast that's cool, casual and super-creative.
Fairmont Royal York
Le Meridien King Edward
With its distinctive blue awning, revolving door and liveried doorman, Toronto's first luxury hotel still bustles with business 107 years on.
The Metropolitan
The Metropolitan isn't a name that rings bells with the locals because it's in a bit of a blind spot on a residential street.
Westin Harbour Castle
If you're nuts about ice hockey and barmy about baseball, it's a short walk from here to their respective stadiums – the Air Canada Centre and Rogers Centre.
Le Germain Maple Leaf Sq.
Nothing here immediately indicates that you're staying just a stone's throw from a hockey and basketball stadium - other than the puck and ball shapes on the carpet.
Thompson Hotel
Arriving in 2010 with all the hype and magnetism of the Death Star, the first Canadian outpost of the super-stylised U.S. chain sucked in fashionistas with its force-field.
Soho Met
Understated and fuss-free, it's all about 'check me in' rather than 'check me out' at this superior link in the Metropolitan hotel chain.
The Hazelton
Yorkville's only five-star hotel exudes all the palpable energy of a matinee idol, and clearly relishes the adulation it commands.
Pantages
So close to the Eaton Centre you could get there blindfolded, Pantages couldn't be more city-central.
The Drake
This is hands-down the coolest kid in town. Stepping over the threshold into a retro cinema-style foyer, this 19-room boutique hotel ups the ante on every level.
Sheraton Centre
It's a daunting experience rolling through the revolving doors and into the hectic hub of this 1,377-room hotel.
Hotel Le Germain
This boutique hotel stands apart from the rest, both physically and stylistically.
Windsor Arms
Quietly grand, this handsome sophisticate effortlessly delivers that tricky combination of high-tech modernity and homely warmth.
Baldwin Village Inn
On a pretty tree-lined street bursting with eclectic eateries, this inn's proximity to the University, AGO and hospitals means that it attracts some boffin lecturer types.
The Gladstone
If there was ever a hotel with a halo it's the good, green Gladstone.
Radisson Hotel Admiral Toronto
More than just a corporate crash pad, the Radisson is a self-proclaimed 'boutique-style' hotel on the Harbourfront - and there is substance to that statement.
Shangri La hotel, Toronto
Take a look at what's to come in the forthcoming Hg2 Toronto! The Shangri La hotel is definitely set to be one of the city's finest when it opens next year.
Review: The Royal York hotel, Toronto
After opening back in 1929, The Royal York hotel in Toronto has charmed guests time and time again. Here's a review preview from our upcoming Hg2 Toronto.
