Toronto, although not the capital, is the largest city in Canada. As the country’s commercial capital, it’s here that you'll find the Toronto Stock Exchange and the largest Canadian banks along with some of the best big name brand shops, alongside its fabulous and stylish hotels.
Due to the high number of immigration over the years, Toronto is home to a diverse population, reflected in city neighbourhoods such as Chinatown, Little Italy and Little Portugal. Voted as one of the most liveable cities in the world, a hotel in Toronto will no doubt provide you with a holiday to remember. Toronto has a wide range of hotels in all star categories, available across the city’s four key areas: downtown, North York, Oakville and Scarborough.
Luxury at its Best in a 5 Star Hotel
Want real luxury? Then choose one of Toronto’s five star hotels. No matter what you choose, with a five star hotel you are always guaranteed a prime location in the centre, roughly between Yonge Street and Avenue Road. A bigger budget is handy, but if you keep an eye on the offers you’re bound to find a bargain.
4 Star Hotels in Downtown Toronto
Most of Toronto’s popular hotels can be found in downtown Toronto. It’s no wonder, what with the extensive shopping in Queen West, the Harbourfront and the Entertainment District that includes several theatres and museums, such as the Royal Ontario Museum and Hockey Hall of Fame. Around here you can choose from more than 50 three and four star hotels, perfect for families or a romantic getaway.
Hotels in North York, Scarborough and Oakville
In the north and northeast areas of Toronto, North York and Scarborough and south westerly located Oakville, there are fewer hotels than you’ll find in the centre, but in any case a good variety of one to four star hotels.
With malls, Fairview, Yorkdale and Vaughan Mills, the Toronto Centre for the Arts, Toronto Botanical Garden, Sunnybrook Park, and a number of universities and colleges in these areas, these are just some of the reasons to look into at North York. Scarborough offers parks and shopping centres, as well as Toronto Zoo, Centennial College and the Ontario Science Centre. Oakville's biggest attraction is the relatively close proximity to Lake Ontario and Niagara Falls, perfect for the outdoorsy types.
Wherever you stay, you’re sure to love your holiday in Toronto.
