Offering loft style city living in Toronto, the Grand Hotel Toronto is ideal for urban nomads who want to explore the best of Toronto.
Located just a few blocks from the thriving heart of downtown Toronto, the Grand Hotel Toronto is a towering building with a homely feel. There are various suites available at the hotel, but all are spacious options with separate sleeping and living areas and generously sized kitchenettes.
The most unique accommodation style on offer comes in the form of the Ambassador Suites. These two storey suites have windows that are almost floor-to-ceiling in height. The downstairs has a spacious living area, a plush work desk, a dining table, a fully equipped granite kitchen, a breakfast bar with stalls and a bathroom. Stairs lead up to a mezzanine sleeping area with another bathroom. It’s feels decadent, but it inspires a feeling a lot like home too.
For those hoping to work, play and entertain in Toronto, the Ambassador Suites meet every need and more. There are also apartments with multiple bedrooms, or a decadent Jacuzzi suite, depending on travellers’ needs. Furthermore, special rates are available to those visiting on extended stays, which is ideal for business travellers looking for a home from home.
Facilities elsewhere in the hotel match up to the suites. A large and well equipped gym is available to guests, with steam rooms and saunas in the changing rooms. A tranquil indoor pool can also be found on one of the hotel’s lower levels, complete with stained glass windows, regal pillars and mosaic tiling, a hot tub and comfortable seating. Travel all the way to the top floor and the rooftop is home to an unexpected surprise too: enjoy perfect cityscape views of Toronto from one of two hot tubs, or from dozens of loungers offering views of the city from every angle.
Just off the lobby, the modern Citrus Restaurant is available for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks. The lunch and dinner menus are particularly tantalising. Starters include the likes of a warm mushroom salad and proper onion soup, baked with a thick bready layer of gruyere cheese on top. Main dishes come in the form of towering burgers or the delectable artichoke and squid spaghettini – indulgent with garlic, chilli and a crumb made out of squid ink. To the side of the restaurant is a patio area – ideal for a lazy drink during the warmer months.
The Grand Hotel Toronto offers roomy accommodation, a warm welcome and private living with a city slicker feel. It’s ideal for urban explorers and any traveller who values feeling at home in a city.
