On the banks of Lake Ontario, Toronto is the city of a hundred villages. While the metropolis has all the perks of a large urban center, including world-class museums and the lofty observation point – the CN Tower – it’s the mosaic of diverse ethnic neighborhoods that impresses visitors the most: Corso-Italia Davenport, Chinatown One and Two, Greektown, Koreatown, Portugal Village and Little Poland, to name a few. You’ll discover that same diversity in Toronto hotels with suites. There’s truly something for everyone, whether your group is family or friends – and these properties are all bookable on Culture Trip.
Right in the heart of downtown, off popular Yonge Street, this all-suite hotel offers three types of suites: Deluxe, which has a sleeping area separate from the living space; Executive, on the top floor; and the bi-level Penthouse, all decked out in classic grays and creams. Room amenities include SmartTVs, ergonomic chairs, a wet bar and windows that open – a rarity here. You can enjoy the rooftop fitness center, sauna and whirlpool, and dine on Italian fusion at the on-site Portico Restaurant. You’ll be within walking distance of the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatres, among other attractions.
This time-honored Toronto landmark hotel is located directly across from Union Station, and attractions such as the Hockey Hall of Fame, Meridian Theater and the CN Tower are all two or three blocks away. This is one of the most elegant Toronto hotels with suites, which are classically furnished in muted tones; some are open-concept, while others have spacious living rooms separate from the sleeping area. Head to swanky Clockwork in the lobby for a signature Tock of the Town cocktail, and make a reservation at Reign for lobster chitarra and East Coast oysters, washed down with carefully chosen vintages from all over the world.
When it comes to Toronto hotels with suites in close proximity to tourist sites, look no farther than the High Park Studio at the Toronto Hilton. In the hotel’s contemporary-designed suites, which feature soft browns and creams and are named after Toronto neighborhoods and subway stations, the floor-to-ceiling windows let you drink in views of the impressive CN Tower. Guests staying in the Kensington, Rosedale and Leaside suites have access to the Executive Lounge for complimentary hot breakfast and evening snacks. David Pecaut Square and its contemporary sculptures, and popular restaurants such as Volos Greek Cuisine, are a short stroll away.
Just off trendy Yonge Street in downtown Toronto, Historic Suites and Tower Suites are your choices at this retrofitted 1914 landmark that was formerly a bank. Of the Historic Suites that look out either over the city or the interior atrium, the Superior is particularly striking, with touches of crimson in the living area and landscape prints. In the adjacent 51-story Sliver skyscraper, the Prestige Tower Suite has a 270-degree view of Toronto and whirlpool tub. Dine on butter chicken and artisanal pizza at the on-site Teller’s Bistro & Bar.
You’re in Toronto’s Entertainment District, so it’s no surprise the Hyatt Regency – halfway between David Pecaut Square and hip Spadina Avenue – named the top-floor space the Director Suite, which features rain showers in the spacious bathrooms, a king-size Hyatt Grand Bed and all-encompassing city views. The Deluxe CN Tower View Suite looks onto the eponymous Toronto landmark. Breakfast buffet is all about seasonal, locally sourced ingredients, and guests can enjoy loaded nachos and smoked beef brisket at the Mix Bistro Bar.
Overlooking Coronation Park and the lakeshore in west Toronto, check out the suite options here: the Junior Suite, which is big enough for three guests; the One-Bedroom Suite, which can accommodate three adults and one child; the Presidential Suite, which boasts 2,100sqft (195sqm) of space; and the bi-level Penthouse Suite, which has your own private terrace. But if you’re still not sure? Hotel X offers you the option to “create your own suite,” whereby they’ll link together several rooms and living room parlors to meet your group’s needs. A rooftop pool and all-you-can-drink Moscow mules and mimosas at the Falcon SkyBar are some of the perks. Guests have access to the 90,000sqft (8,361sqm) 10XTO athletic center.
Among Toronto hotels with suites, the Westin Harbour Castle – just steps from Lake Ontario – offers numerous suite choices, plus upscale rooms with private terraces looking out over the comings and goings of the ferries to the Toronto islands. The corner-room Studio Suite has particularly good lake views, while the two-bedroom Ontario Suite is ideal for families. Amenities include the heated pool and the 24-hour WestinWORKOUT Fitness Studio, while innovative small plates, artisanal cocktails and local craft brews await in the Chartroom.
